This Actually Happened: Alabama Teacher Used Assassination of Obama to Teach Geometry

A high school teacher in Alabama was reported for using the assassination of US President Barack Obama as an example to teach students about angles and parallel lines. Wow. I couldn't have made that up. The teacher is apparently not being fired though he has been placed on leave.

Joseph Brown, a senior in the geometry class.
, stated that the teacher "was talking about angles and said, 'If you're in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president.' "

Reported (mostly) without commentary because the story says so much more on its own.

  1. What is wrong with these people?

    Seriously? What is going through your mind when you think and actually execute a lesson like that?

    And apparently this educated teacher wasn't fired? Or, dunno... charged with hate crimes? Jesus.

    Can you imagine if someone did this to Bush in a classroom during his term. I hate right wing bastards like this.
