New Jersey Transit Worker Derek Fenton

4th\NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

A man who burned pages from the Quran outside a planned mosque near ground zero on Saturday has been fired from his job with NJ Transit, the agency said Wednesday.

In a statement, the agency said Derek Fenton was fired on Sept. 13 because his public actions "violated New Jersey Transit's code of ethics" and "violated his trust as a state employee."

NJ Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett Hackett said Fenton, 39, had worked for the agency for 11 years as a train conductor and most recently as a coordinator to ensure the right number of train cars is put into service.
