(Newser) – A Subway worker in Mississippi is out of work after posting on Facebook that two police officers shot and killed Saturday basically had it coming, the Clarion-Ledger reports. "Two police officers shot tonight in Hattiesburg," posted a woman who goes by C-Babi Denell Senshala and Sierra McCurdy. She added emojis of a laughing face, a sad face, a monkey covering its mouth, a skull, and three handguns beside the final words: "GOT EM." The woman, who works in the city of Laurel, wears her Subway uniform in a smiling photo along with the post. (Her Facebook page is now locked, but you can see her pic and posting at the Daily News). According to AL.com, she also posted that "Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it , f---- them . . . (no mercy)."

Seems none of this jibes with Subway's corporate values: "This kind of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values and ethics of our brand," says a Subway rep. "The unfortunate choice of one individual should not reflect on the more than 400,000 honest, hardworking Sandwich Artists worldwide. The franchisee has terminated the employee, effective immediately." Calls to the Subway in Laurel all reached a busy signal, and efforts to reach McCurdy by phone all ended in a voicemail box that was full. The slain officers—Benjamin Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25—were shot down Saturday night during a routine traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Miss., and four people have been arrested on an array of charges related to the double murder.
