“Mr. Fenton’s public actions violated New Jersey Transit’s code of ethics,” an agency statement said.
“NJ Transit concluded that Mr. Fenton violated his trust as a state employee and therefore [he] was dismissed.”
Fenton was ushered from the protests by police on Saturday and questioned, but he was released without charges.
“He said, ‘This is America,’ and he wanted to stand up for it, in a Tea Party kind of way,” a police source said.
Another police source said Fenton described himself as a “loyal American” exercising his “right to protest.”

Guess the State bureaucrats haven’t heard of the First Amendment. No matter how offensive the speech, we have to protect it. The worst thing is for the nut jobs to be silenced and go underground. Didnt’ work in the USSR, won’t work here. Let everyone speak their mind and the Gooferment should stay out of it.
For the record, this guy is a bozo. But he had the Creator given right to demonstrate his bozoness!
