Penn State student loses job over Tech victim costume
Nathan Jones, one of the Penn State University students who dressed for Halloween as a Virginia Tech shooting victim, said the controversy has cost him his job.
In an e-mail Friday, Jones said he was asked to resign Thursday from his post at Bank of America or be fired.
"They were worried that my name may be attached to the Bank of America brand, and that this controversy would lead to a scandal," he said.
Photos of Jones and another Penn State student were posted on Facebook and caused a national outcry.
In interviews with several media outlets, including an on-camera piece on CNN this week, Jones refused to apologize.
"Things are going to be hard now, especially since I have no outside support. ... However, even though I will be starving over the holidays and my credit cards will all default, I still will not apologize," he wrote.

The whole tragedy happened less than a month after our school heard the "School Safety: Psychology of a Shooter" speech from Dave Grossman. Our college started defense against active shooters last year as a result.
