A special education teacher from Minnesota has resigned after she posted a message on Twitter encouraging people to kill Brett Kavanaugh.
The identity of the teacher is yet to be officially revealed, but some online users have claimed that her name is Samatha Ness, although that information hasn't been confirmed.
It has been reported that the FBI is well aware of the death threat and that the case is currently being investigated. So far, the teacher hasn't been charged with any crime.

FROM PAID LEAVE TO UNEMPLOYED
Initially, and according to Mark Zuzet, the superintendent of Independent School District 917, in Rosemount, the teacher was placed on paid administrative leave but she then voluntarily resigned.
"The actions of the employee did not occur at school, and there were no school devices, equipment, or other school staff involved in the actions. At no time were students or staff in danger."

POSTING WITHOUT THINKING
The tweet, which read: "so whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?" was posted on Saturday, October 6, after Kavanaugh was confirmed as the new U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
The post has since been deleted, along with the account used to issue it, @lookitsSamm, but the proper authorities don't seem keen on letting the death threat slide and are analyzing the situation.
It has been reported that the former teacher worked at the Alliance Education Center, which helps students with behavioral problems, developmental issues and disabilities.
A SOURCE OF JOKES
Kavanaugh has been in the news quite a lot in the past few weeks due to the allegations of sexual misconducted raised by Christine Blasey Ford, the victim, back when he was in high school and in college in the 80s.
Despite the seriousness of the situation, the case has led some people to make fun of Kavanaugh, including the "Saturday Night Live" cast, with the help of actor Matt Damon, who played the role of the judge in a skit.
