    I think the teacher should be given a medal, a bullet proof cage and a machine gun mounted on a turret if the majority of Kids I see today are any example.

    HMMM.....reminds me of a life story. Once broke the vice principle's nose! Long story short, he put his hands on me and I decked him in my senior year! All because I was 5 minutes late (my old 6 volt car wouldn't start that cold morning). Never was late before (I hate late...). Confronted me in parking lot, accused me of always late and decides to "escort" me to his office. He was looking at sky when he touched me!
    He wanted to call police, my Mom said he'd be going to jail also (after hearing my/witnesses story)......he changed his mind quickly! LOL

    @stepped_in_it But you weren't in a gang by 10 years old were you? these little hoodlums are not the same people as when we went to school and had the occasional confrontation.

    @jessejaymes Hell no....Mom and Dad would've killed me and made another "stepped"! Kids now days are nothing more than hoodlums and parents are TOO! My "gang" was 5 or 6 people and the worse we did was "TP" a yard!!

    As always with Teachers Unions, the perp is on PAID leave. Any one working in the REAL world would have been fired. Public Employee Unions SUCK.

    @Penn1699 I gotta great GOP style idea. We'll outlaw the teacher's unions, decrease their pay, increase their class size, make them work all year round. And THEN we'll train them and give them all guns!

    @PNWest no I am not after outlawing or decreasing pay.
    However keeping their class sizes below 30 and having them work year round to get our children competing again with the rest of the world I am for.
    A bit of common sense pertaining keeping teachers mental health stable is necessary for the welfare of children. Physically and developmentally necessary.
    Common sense is needed. That's all I'm saying.

    @PNWest Any teacher that cannot handle a pay cut when one is necessary, or working year round for crying outloud has no business in the job market! If teachers cannot handle real work or the other realities of the job market they are too immature to be teaching. I'm tired of this "teachers are so special they have to coddled" nonsense.

    And we are SURE the teacher wrote it, right? Because students have never been known to pull pranks. If he DID write it, I'd say he has no business teaching, or in any business that puts him in contact with kids. Kids have been known to drive people over the edge. Put together a class-full of Jake Harpers (Angus Jones, from "Two & A Half Men" show) and I can see why the guy went nutso.

    So are Union government teacher leaving these threatening messages for students , which elude to firearms, after the massacre at Sandy Hook... and according to officials there was no imminent danger. however if 1 of those kids would have made a finger gun he would have been expelled.
    this teacher should be in jail. I'll bet he's a Democrat

    Basking,
    I don't think even the Democrats will take that bet - unless you give them Million-to-one odds.

    @thumper11 you know with every other story in the news about guns you would think someone in the state controlled media would have mentioned this story.

    Unfortunately you are wrong, he nmust be a republican. I know this because I have a teaching degree and business degree and know the courses required for both. The business degre has many of the same core classes required to teach business in school. Amongst those classes is economics, and you know as well as I do that no democrat as ever passed and economics class. Otherwise they could never support anything economic law Obama has done.

    could be an inside joke with the class or tired of the kind of kids forced to be in that class. greed has taken over most school districts and instead of removing problem kids the teachers have to deal with mom and dads failure to teach their kids right from wrong before sending them to school.

    some of those poor teachers have to deal with kids most of us would rather see locked up than be in the same room with.

    @Thegrif Yeppers, just finished 13 straight "days" (actually graveyard). One day off and hoping for only 6 days this week. Have to wonder if the money is that good when I'm 6 days in and 6 feet under?

    @stepped_in_it we work for our families, but you are right, what good is it if they lost you?

    Kids these days ARE idiots.
    The gun comment was over the top, for sure, but the majority of kids know more about the train wreck Kardashians than real history. Or science. Or math. Or English. Or anything. Idiots.

    You are idiots followed by 8 exclamation points - LOL!!!!!!!!

    Reminds me of the movie "Teachers" where the crazy guy who escaped from the insane asylum winds up being the best teacher.

    I had a similar thought - has anyone seen Keith Olbermann lately? Those kids probably have no idea what he looks like.

    Interesting...

    Why do high school students have cell phones or smartphones on during school hours when they should be learning, instead of taking pictures to slant a story?

    Fire the teacher and expell all the students in the class for the remainder of school year and make them repeat the grade the following year. Only effective way to make sure you get them all. Punish everyone and leave no stone unturned.
  • #16

    Are you kidding me? Fail the grade because they took their phone out? I'm pretty sure ANY teenage kid would have snapped a photo of their TEACHER calling them idiots, telling them the guns are loaded, and telling them to "try him". But no, lets punish the kids.

    You are a fool. Punish kids for taking out their phones (or ipod or iPad) that they aren't using but have in their backpack or purse and taking a picture of a threat from a teacher? Congratulations! That is the dumbest thing I've read here today and there are some dumb things being said.
    I'm a rule abider. If I was in school I wouldn't be texting or calling people during class. I would be using my phone as a calculator and homework schedule. Depending on the class and the assignment I would likely do some Internet research on it as well. Multiply that by a thousand if I had an iPad. There are probably dozens of ways that a student could be responsibly and productively using a phone during school hours. And even they didn't use it all during class it would be far from inappropriate to pull it out to take a picture of a threat from the teacher.
    Students do wrong things and deserve to suffer consequences when they do. Only a fool thinks this was one of those things.

    Fools write foolish things on "public" forums (like a chalkboard OR this forum). And that's what I'm calling you/your statement!
    Phones need to be shut off during school.....BUT, I don't care who/what "threatens" me, when something like this is posted I'd expose it.
    "Slant a story"....exactly what YOU do on way too many of your post....slant the story (IMO)......republicans slant the story.....democrats slant the story...both need to be "deported" out of this country!!!

    Did you see who the parents of these children voted for? obama was reelected. This was a business teacher. The kids probably truly are idiots and the teacher was probably so frustrated and fed up trying to explain the concept of spending less than you take in.

    Believe it or not, not every action or statement that makes a gun owner look psycho is all about politics. It is usually about a gun owner and psychosis not going well together.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix I've seen you make some ridiculous stretches trying to smear Mr. Obama when the subject is something like butterflies or popcorn or clouds. But this has to be one of your most ludicrous attempts.
  • #53
    !
    @Zazziness - You deny obama believes you can spend more than you bring in? The students were probably trying to tell the teacher that they are wrong. The teacher is trying to explain you can't spend what you don't have. I feel bad for the teacher. I honestly do.

    There is a possibility the teacher went over the top for a number of reasons...27 years in the education field could likely do it to you...he has seen how the youth has digressed in this nation due to inept parenting and allowing the youth to go unchecked...these are the very people which will be deciding our future...

    Extra credit question for period 6 only. It is probably just the answers for a multiple guess question on something Ted Nugent said.

    we probably wont hear anything else on this story.
    kids today are idiots, yeah the guns are loaded cause of foreign nationals who lie about being American citizens are attacking the constitution. there's other things going on that the government control media wont report.

    When the local sheriff (eventually) does the vetting of candidates for concealed-carry on campus, he would be prudent to exercise maximum scrutiny when vetting Democrats (which nearly all teachers and school-administrators are). They aren't known for mental stability, or emotional maturity.

    Well yes, of course - when people finally get fed-up with their public-servants setting their children up like fish-in-a-barrel to be slaughtered by lunatics and criminals (who disregard all laws), they will eventually demand the repeal of all (misnamed) "gun-free zones".
