If there aren’t enough crazy and mixed up young people either threatening to shoot up a school or actually taking guns to school and opening fire on fellow classmates, now we have a teacher threatening to do the same thing and you won’t believe her motive.
A 48-year-old teacher at Bonanza High School in Las Vegas wants to start a new #MeToo movement, but it has nothing to do with sexual harassment or improper conduct. She wants to start a new movement to empower females to be serial killers.
Yep, you read that right, she wants to start a movement of women serial killers. She text a friend that she wanted to ‘poke a lot of holes in a lot of people’ at a concert in Las Vegas. She then texted that she wanted to be remembered and start another #MeToo movement ‘but this time in which women feel empowered enough to become serial killers’.
She also texted:
“A perfect plan with my favorite song surrounded by a bunch of f****** up misfit like I am. Imagine knowing exactly the moment that you’re going to die. I know exactly that your favorite song will be playing. By your favorite band. It’s just too perfect.”
If that is hard to believe, you won’t believe how this issue was handled. Police went to arrest her only three days before the concert she planned on attending. She wasn’t at home, so they went to the school and arrested her. She admitted to sending the series of text messages and then said that she often sends messages like that to her friends.
Incredibly, she was released on bail and ordered to appear in court for a hearing in June.
The only action the school district took was to assign her to home, whatever that means. Frankly, she should have been fired for making such a threat. If a student dared text a message like that, the student would still be in jail and suspended from school, but for reasons unknown, this teacher is out on bail to do who knows what?
This brings up the whole issue of zero tolerance policies in many schools. First and second graders have been suspended from school for pointing a finger or pencil at another student and pretending to shoot them. One student was suspended after chewing off part of a toaster pastry to look like a mountain range. The teacher looked at it from a different angle and said it looked like a gun and the student was suspended. Then there was the case of a young girl who was playing with a friend at school and said that after they got home, she would shoot here with her Hello Kitty Bubble Gun and yep, she was suspended. Another student told his friends on the school bus that he wished he had gun so he could protect his friends. The bus driver over heard the conversation, reported it and the student was suspended.
Yet, this teacher, who obviously needs some psychiatric help, is free on bail and told to come back to face her charges sometime in June.
With teachers like this, no wonder we have students shooting up schools.
