Hearse drivers are fired after taking a coffee break.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown explains from Miami:

Two hearse drivers from the Tampa Bay area are now out of job, after taking a coffee break. They left their hearse in the parking lot, with the curtains open, and inside was a flag-draped coffin containing the body of Lt. Col. Jesse Coleman. The decorated soldier had died at age 84, but served both in Korea and Vietnam. The image of the honored casket being left unguarded in the parking lot didn't sit well with passers-by, who took photos and sent them to veterans groups, who put them up on Facebook.
