Did anyone watch Fox News on the issuse with the teacher brutally forcing the student to stand during the pledge of allegience? O'Reilly didn't see anything wrong with the teacher's behavior! The teacher was OUT OF CONTROL! He could have at least told the student to leave the class! A feedback letter mentioned that the teacher violated the strudent's first Amendment rights but O'Reilly says "that's not true". The Law says everyone MUST stand!" This does NOT excuse the teacher's behavior! He acted as though the kid commited murder! :shock:

You won't find very many watchers of Faux News at TVNL, except as evidence of how that station spreads right-wing propoganda. It offers nothing else of interest to progressives, which make up the vast majority of this board.

It's also a good idea to wait and get all of the information before you start to judge the actions of this teacher. Apparently, these HOODLUMS had been causing trouble before:

Keith Olbermann reported this afternoon:

Yelling 101At first, it had the makings of a Supreme Court separation of church and state case. Then it looked like "teachers gone wild." For a moment, it even evoked Watergate because there was a tape involved, and ten minutes on it, were missing.

Now, it appears to be the saga of three high school kids who are simply morons with cameras, who live in Brick Township New Jersey, an appropriately named place — you know, thick as a brick. You may have already seen it on the internet; first, the web instant classic: kid won't stand for National Anthem, then teacher goes bonkers. Electronics teacher Stewart Mantel got all kinds of grief for that. But it turns out there was ten minutes missing from the original tape — of the students provoking Mantel. While recording on what was not as first reported, a camera inside a cell phone... but a hidden video recorder. And it turns out, that the teacher was only the latest victim of a group of Brick Township High students who regularly stage, film, and post images of their merry adventures. Which police have now discovered included, the destruction using baseball bats of Christmas displays at homes in the neighborhood — drinking, profanity, simulated violence. As it turns out, the day before the Anthem incident, some of these same students had saran-wrapped a younger kid to a desk. And that the "Anthem" tape was a set-up. School senior Corey Zappo told local reporters "we just knew Mr. Mantel was going to flip out because he frequently did and my friends and I thought it would be kind of funny to catch it" — catch it on tape, that is.

Well, guess what? Brick Township police have now "caught" Mr. Zappo. They arrested him and two other kids on four counts of Criminal Mischief each. That’s worse than summer school.
