The Canadian Press reports that a case in Canada is highlighting the controversy over whether employers can – and perhaps, should – keep track of employees’ online postings or activity.

Days before three armed guards were killed and a fourth wounded as they delivered cash to the University of Alberta, a controversial posting appeared on the Facebook page of a man whose name matches that of the primary suspect in the case.

“I wonder if I’d make the six o’clock news if I just starting popping people off,” read the quote on the page of a Travis Baumgartner.

The post came June 1, less than two weeks before the shootings of the G4S Cash Solutions guards.
