In yet another example of what-happens-on-Facebook-happens-in-front-of-everyone-in-the-world-please-stop-posting-private-crap-on-Facebook-it’s-going-to-get-you-fired-or-arrested news, a Confluence, Pennsylvania police chief has resigned after a questionable photo made its way on the site.

The photo seen above of chief Tom Keller and a woman packing serious heat popped up on Facebook.

In his defense, Keller claims to have been the victim of a hacker that’s “just trying to embarrass him.” That would explain the fact that photo wound up on Facebook, I guess. But explaining the photo itself, well, that’s a different task.

According to Somerset County’s the Daily American, Keller has resigned his position after being suspended without pay.

“This photo was meant to be private,” he said. “It is a propped photo, a family photo of me and my wife just having fun.”

In response to the situation, town mayor Allen Gyorko said,

“In the winter, people get a little, what you call, cabin fever, you know. And they do goofy things..We’re a little distraught about it.”

    This doesn’t matter and I don’t understand why he has been fired/suspended just only by this. It’s ridiculous, what stupid extremist moralist forbides to take photos of yourself just ‘playing the clown’? Shame.

  • Bob

    @AB agreed. Why would he have to quit for this is beyond me. They are married, and were the victims (probably) of a hacker. Political correctness claims another victim.

  • Brian

    I think the pic is fine…there is nothing to b ashamed about

    That’s a terrible photo…the color is bad. the lighting is bad. the background is distracting…they should have had a better photographer.

    Perhaps the pressure to resign came from either: A) Guys with ugly wives / girlfriends or B) Out of shape women who feel threatened? LMAO!!!!

    Absolutely ridiculous!

  • Bronwyn

    Am I the only one who thinks this is probably because of the gun? Is he supposed to let anyone else have it? I would have thought that if that is his police gun it’s probably not supposed to be used by anyone else, even in fun.
