A female developer was fired after tweeting about a group of men she said were making sexual comments at a computer programming conference, fueling an already vigorous debate about gender equality and culture in Silicon Valley.
But Jim Franklin, executive director of the Minnesota Sheriffs Association, said his group and others are just trying to inform lawmakers about the implications of their actions.
