He was pushed

When Sgt. Gregory Prickett (pictured at left), hereinafter referred to as The Prickette, left his position as campus cop at UNT-Dallas, no one could say for sure if he jumped or was pushed.  Now, the as the Modern Pharisee first reported, the UNT student newspaper has provided the answer to that question: he was pushed.
A veteran UNT police officer has filed an appeal after he was fired in December on accusations that he violated the university’s computer-use policy.

UNT Dallas Police Coordinator Gregory J. Prickett, a 20-year member of the department, was placed on administrative leave in October while investigators looked into complaints that he had blogged and edited Wikipedia articles at work.
Fired. Now it's out. Now we know.

My first reaction to this is that my fellow bloggers and allied persons have been vindicated. The Prickette IS the vile TxBluesMan. The Prickette DID use university computers for his campaign of slanderous hatred.

As Hugh noted in his post, "They don't fire you for blogging from work when you've been there for 20 years." That would lead one to believe that The Prickette went well beyond blogging to activities that quite possibly put the university at risk, or at least violated the university's code of ethics. There's more to his dismissal than just blogging at work. I, for one, am left with the hanging question: what ELSE did The Prickette do using university computers and other resources? I would like answers. (YOU WANT ANSWERS? I WANT THE TRUTH!!! YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!)

Sorry.  Got a little carried away there.

Never look a gift horse('s ass) in the mouth, that's what I say. I can't say that I'm pleased that The Prickette lost his job. But I am pleased that his vile internet presence has been quashed, hopefully for good.

Yer finished, Prickette! Time to take your sorry, tired act and head home to wherever subhumans like you live.
