A football town with a drinking problem.........

ok, pittsburgh takes its football seriously. maybe.....a little too seriously. seems a teacher at an area high school went a little overboard when one of his students wore a denver broncos shirt to school last friday. the kid expected to get some shit from other students but then the teacher chimed in. when the kid (who by the way is an honor student) came into class the teacher (according to the student) wouldnt let him sit at a desk. the teacher said he owned the desk and the kid couldnt sit there. he made the kid sit on the floor in the middle of all the students. the kid had to lay on the carpet and do his TEST. that wasnt enough. the teacher then handed out paper to everyone in the class and told them to pelt the kid with wads of paper....while he did his test. one girl said she wouldnt do that and the teacher picked up the paper he gave her and hit the kid in the back of the head with it. now this is the kids story and we havent heard the teachers version but because he hasnt come out and said this is complete bullshit it leads me to believe that he did it. i'm sure he thought it was all in good fun but he went too far. the kid said he couldnt finish the test because he was shaking with rage. that teachers lucky this kid isnt some trenchcoat wearing psycho that can get his hand on a gun. this also goes to the point of picking on a kid because hes different. you want to know where kids learn this.......well, look at this kid and maybe as parents we should all look in the mirror. the kid knew he would get some shit from other kids but a free thinker like this was prepared for that...knowing that he would see these kids later in life as he passed them in the middle but of course in america these days you dont want free thinkers. god forbid a kid have an original thought. i'm not saying this kid would cure cancer some day but this type of thinking is what will hold ameriva back. in a follow up that isnt free thinking (and you all knew this was coming) his parents have hired a lawyer. this kid might get a free college education because of this idiot teacher. hey, the bottom line is ...if this teacher did it then he better start apologizing quickly and sincerely or he should be fired.

i rant, therefore i am......now get workin.

The only way we could have justified the actions by this teacher if the kid wore a Dallas Cowboys shirt instead. Ok, just kidding. Cannot condone the actions by this idoit teacher. Sports teams are like personal beliefs, there are so many to choose from and not one is right or wrong.

I disagree with your assertion that the teacher should either start apologizing sincerely OR get fired. I'd've chosen the conjunction "and" instead.

*applause* thank you.. this is a really bad example of authoratative power... and ill be damned if my child would attend class until the school board did something with that teacher...

oh and the teacher has given a statement saying he "did those things".. (i think was the quote from ABC news)
