Teacher questioned after using Obama assassination as example in geometry class

Raw Story

An Alabama geometry teacher, in an apparent effort to teach his students about parallel lines and angles, used a theoretical assassination attempt on President Barack Obama to demonstrate the angle at which a gunman would have to shoot the president.

"He was talking about angles and said, 'If you're in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president,' " said Joseph Brown, a high school senior in the geometry class told The Birmingham News.

The Secret Service questioned the idiot teacher and is bringing no charges, which seems correct, but the school is not going to fire him, which is most definitely not correct in my NSHO.

The assassination of a President is never something to joke about, particularly in this edgy political climate full of right wing nut jobs we find ourselves in, and certainly should not used as an example for children.

Fixer and I used to call for Bush, Cheney et al to be hanged for their crimes, but only after due process.

If that dumb sonofabitch teacher had said something like that in front of my kids, he'd be eating through a straw. In Alabama he'll probably get a citizenship award.
