    Eight-year-old boy threatened with expulsion from school for drawing pictures of Halloween costumes that included guns or knives

    Parents in Scottsdale, Arizona have removed their children from school after the headmaster threatened to expel their eight-year-old son for drawing pictures of potential Halloween costumes.

    The boy was a student at Scottsdale Country Day School when his parents were called to a meeting last week. The principal told the boy's parents that their child was a danger to other children and threatened to expel him over the pictures.

    These imaginative passages usually feature the boy as the hero of his story. In one highlight passage, he escapes a zombie at a haunted school. 'I'd open the window, but stand back quickly. 🤬 -trapped. Shoot the gadget - a rope gun - I'd swing across without getting hit.' Other entries in the journal are about saving the world from atom bombs and having the ability to stop bullets. Jeff told KPHO that the headmaster told him that he couldn't guarantee the safety of the other students around his son.

    'In this situation, it's actually the principal of the school who bullied the parents - so much that we couldn't even be safe in that environment. 'I think we really send our children the wrong message when we show that, as adults, we're so afraid of our shadow that an innocent picture - that any 8-year-old might've drawn - is cause for this kind of concern,' Jeff told KPHO. He says his son has no history of violence or threatening other children. According to Scottsdale County Day School policy, drawings of weapons are grounds for expulsion. The school handbook states that grounds for expulsion include 'Any behavior that is deemed threatening such as violent behavior, drawings depicting weapons, blood, or aggression, or any verbal actions causing or threatening to cause harm to a person, group of persons, animal, or facility.'




    Hero Bus Driver Stops to Save Woman from Jumping Off a Bridge


    Buffalo bus driver Darnell "Big Country" Barton says he only did what he felt he was supposed to do when he stopped his bus to rescue a woman threatening to jump from an overpass above the Scajaquada Expressway.
    It was just another Friday afternoon for the public transportation employee who was heading south toward Buffalo State College with a bus full of McKinley High School students.

    "It didn't seem real because what was going on around, traffic and pedestrians were going by as normal," Barton told WIVB, recalling the sight of a woman preparing to jump off the overpass's narrow ledge.

    Security footage from inside the bus shows Barton pull the bus over and quickly walk up to the woman in an effort to grab her before she had a chance to do the unthinkable.

    "She was distraught, she was distant, she was really disconnected," he said. "I grabbed her arm and put my arm around her and said 'Do you want to come on this side of the guardrail', and that was actually the first time she spoke to me she said yes."

    After helping her over the guardrail, Barton sat with the woman until a counselor and a corrections officer who happened by offered to take over.

    "Darnell won’t tell you this, but when he went back on his bus, the McKinley students gave him a round of applause," a Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority spokesman told the Buffalo News.

    "I was supposed to be there for her at that moment and I was," said the humble Barton. "I wanted to convey that whatever it was, I'm going to help you through and it's not as serious as jumping onto the 198."

    Elementary teacher told to stop writing on students after boy is sent home with 'B' on his forehead for not doing his homework

    An elementary school teacher in Houston, Texas, has been warned by administrators to stop writing on his students.

    The teacher, who hasn’t been named, works at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School and has allegedly left marks on students on several occasions using a marker pen.

    The matter has come to a head after one parent, Victor Jimenez, was shocked when his 8-year-old son returned home with a ‘B’ written on his face.

    The teacher left the mark because the second grader – who isn’t named - didn't complete his homework.

    Victor Jimenez, who complained to school authorities, told KPRC that he doesn’t believe the teacher should be allowed to keep his job.

    ‘For me, he does not have any professionalism or ethics at all,’ said Jimenez. ‘I do not understand how he can continue being a teacher.’

    According to Jimenez this isn’t an isolated incident. He said he was told by the school that several other students have had the same issue with the same teacher.

    The Houston Independent School District released a statement on Monday in which they confirmed that administrators had met with the teacher and that he had confirmed the allegations.

    ‘Administrators launched an investigation and met with the teacher, who confirmed the report. The situation is being handled as a personnel matter, and the teacher has been directed to cease the practice,' said the HISD.


    Food Blogger Brags About Using Guys to Fund Her Fancy Restaurant Habit

    By: Neetzan Zimmerman

    I can hear the script deal now: A cash-strapped "aspiring actress" and food blogger is being called a "manipulative sociopath" for devising a plan to date as many men as it takes to complete her fancy restaurant wish list.

    Erin Wotherspoon, 24, of Toronto has been writing about her "venture into the maze of Toronto’s hottest resto nabes" on a Tumblr entitled "A Penniless Girl, Bad Dates & Plenty of Oysters." Though she has made no effort to hide her true intentions, Erin was officially "outed" late last week by a local nightlife magazine in a blurb outlining the lengths this "maneater" was willing to go to in order to check yet another "resto" off her 48-eatery "hit list." "And there isn’t too much she won’t do for a free gourmet meal," writes Toronto Life. "Masquerade as a practicing Jew in order to date guys on J-Date? Sure. ('I’d say my Hebrew is on the rougher side'). Target recent immigrants to avoid risking detection? Absolutely."

    Speaking with a local radio station, Erin admitted to being aware that her serial dating is "not particularly nice," but insisted that "not all art or people expressing themselves [is] going to be nice." That last bit seems to have incurred the ire of Reddit's infamous army of men, which put out an APB on the OkCupid subreddit warning potential suitors to "watch out for this girl." One Ontario Redditor who claimed he had a firsthand experience with Erin said they had coffee together but he skipped out on the dinner she had planned "because she was boring." "[A]nd this, my male compatriots, is why you only ever do coffee on a first date, NEVER dinner," responded Redditor 🤬 _AND_OFFENSIVE.

    Erin took Reddit's cries of "female Tucker Max" in stride, writing on her blog, "This just in, sometimes women don’t have the best intentions." "Reality check?" she added, "Toronto gold diggers exist. Be afraid, be very afraid."

    Despite being content for the time being with trolling her dates and the men's rights movement, Erin told AM640 she'd be "receptive" to Mr. Right if he happened to come along.

    "But at this point I just keep meeting Mr. Unibrow," she said.

    Kids Have to Pay Hundreds of Thousands to Teacher They Called a "Perv"
    By: Gabrielle Bluestone

    Three schoolgirls who falsely accused a California physical education teacher of being a "perv" who touched them inappropriately now owe the man nearly $400,000 in a defamation judgement, and one of the young girls — an eleven-year-old described as the "ringleader" — is also on the hook for punitive damages.

    Forty-nine-year-old John Fischler filed a defamation suit after he was falsely accused of touching the young girls and peeking in their bathroom. Fischler was cleared of the charges by school officials and police, but declined to return to work due to a "poisonous atmosphere."

    Opponents of the case said that awarding damages to Fischler would have a chilling effect on children voluntarily reporting abuse in the future. But the jury disagreed, awarding Fischler $362,653 in compensatory damages, and finding that the eleven-year-old acted with malice, making her and her family liable for punitive damages.

    The jury will begin determining those punitive damages on Monday.

    According to the San Jose Mercury News, the jury appeared to come down harder on the ringleader due to her "demeanor in court."
    The demeanor of the "ringleader," now 14, appeared to have alienated the jury. She giggled often while testifying, and twice got off the witness stand, stood in front of the jury box and demonstrated a dance move and chant a school cheer. The jurors sat grim-faced without smiling.

    In contrast, Fischler and his lawyer Robert Vantress were childhood friends, and Vantress argued the teacher's case with nearly humorless passion.

    Hard on Hoes: Bad Review Edition... Woman Fined $3,500 For Writing Bad Review Of Business

    A woman in Utah is facing a $3,500 fine (!!!!) after doing what pretty much most of us do when we have something to say about a business—leaving an online review.

    In 2009, Jen Palmer's husband bought her some Christmas gifts from KlearGear.com. When the merchandise still hadn't arrived a month later, PayPal closed the transaction and refunded her money. Palmer tried to contact the company to inquire about the order, but couldn't get in touch with anyone. Frustrated, she wrote a critical review of the company on RipoffReport.com and moved on. OK, so far sounds pretty normal! Except, oh wait. 🤬 .

    Kleargear.com says Jen violated a non-disparagement clause. It turns out that, hidden within the terms of sale on Kleargear.com there is a clause that reads:

    "In an effort to ensure fair and honest public feedback, and to prevent the publishing of libelous content in any form, your acceptance of this sales contract prohibits you from taking any action that negatively impacts kleargear.com, its reputation, products, services, management or employees."

    The clause goes on to say if a consumer violates the contract they will have 72 hours to remove your post or face a $3500 fine. If that fine is not paid, the delinquency will be reported to the nation's credit bureaus.

    "This is fraud," Jen said. "They're blackmailing us for telling the truth."

    Palmer also says she tried to ask RipOffReport to remove the bad review, but they won't do it unless she pays them $2,000! WTF. Seriously, no. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL 🤬 .

    Palmer doesn't have the money to hire a lawyer to pursue the case, so now she's working with Experian to get the ding on her credit report removed. Hopefully, they are not batshit insane, too and will help this poor woman clear up this whole nightmare.

    Although this does get me thinking, maybe it's not such a good idea to post all those angry diatribes on Yelp about the local KFC when they run out of ranch dipping sauce.

    Anti HOH: Back Head edition... Woman 'backed her truck over boyfriend's head and killed him' after argument

    An Oklahoma woman has been arrested after she backed her pickup truck over her boyfriend's head - killing him police say.

    Jonna Jordan, 18, had been fighting with Orlando Rutledge, 44, at his home in Enid, Oklahoma, Saturday.

    When she left him home, she quickly backed out of the driveway and ran over him, authorities say.

    The Enid News reports that he died shortly after medics arrived.

    Police were called to the home - 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City - about just before 11pm and found Rutledge unconscious in his driveway with severe trauma to both his chest and his head. He died before medics could get him to the hospital. Jordan, who was still at the scene of the crime, resisted when police tried to arrest her. In addition to vehicular manslaughter, she was charged with assault on a police officer by 🤬 fluids. Rutledge was the father of a young daughter. Jordan was booked into the Garfield County Detention Center and is being held pending a bail hearing.

    We SHOULD snoop on our children, say parents as 60% confess they read their kids' emails, texts and Facebook messages

    Six out of ten parents admit they regularly read their children’s private emails, texts and Facebook messages, a study revealed today. Researchers found that, despite the risk of being accused of invading the privacy of their offspring, the majority of mothers and fathers still believe snooping is 'necessary' to keep tabs on who their children engage with online. The study also found one in ten parents have gone as far as to find out their son or daughter’s password, despite their offspring’s best attempts to keep it from them.

    But as a result, the poll by internet security firm Bullguard found, as many as one in three parents were wracked with guilt after hacking their child's email. Alex Balan of BullGuard said: 'Parents do face a real moral dilemma as to whether they should check what their children are doing online. 'It’s understandable to want to keep tabs on the sites that they are visiting but whether to read private emails, texts and messages poses a real quandary for parents. 'While you want to look out for your child and ensure they are safe you also want them to be technologically savvy and have their own independence.'

    One in five parents have been ‘shocked’ by content they have discovered on their children’s email, text or Facebook account. The alarmingly high figure emerged from a study of 2,000 parents of children aged 10-17, which showed 61 per cent regularly snoop on their offspring.

    It also emerged that one in five mothers and fathers are convinced their children lie about their age to gain access to social networking sites. More than one in ten parents have had to deal with their child being bullied online and a whopping 17 per cent have had to intervene after their child was threatened. What’s more concerning is that 23 per cent of parents said their child didn’t know the perpetrator. It is no wonder then that one in four parents have confessed their snooping to their children because they were so concerned about what they found. The worrying statistics were revealed in a study by internet and mobile security firm BullGuard which revealed the average child doesn’t actually know 40 per cent of the people they befriend on Facebook. The study also found around 38 per cent of parents believe they would lose their child’s trust completely if they confessed to snooping.

    A more discreet 37 per cent had brought up the issues they were concerned about but hadn’t let on they had seen private content on their child’s computer or phone. Researchers also found 30 per cent of concerned parents admit that although they were aware they were invading their child’s privacy they felt it was necessary in order to keep tabs on who they were talking to online. Reading emails, texts and messages were the most popular way for parents to spy on their kids as well as checking recent call lists and monitoring their internet history. But nearly a third admitted they felt guilty after hacking into their child’s email or Facebook account. Of the parents who took part, just one in ten said they knew the passwords to their children's smartphone or computer despite their son or daughter trying to keep it private.

    And 34 per cent of parents of children aged 10-17 said they have no idea what the passwords are to their children's gadgets. The main areas of concerns for parents were who their children were talking to online, how much time they spend on the internet and the type of sites they are visiting. Alex Balan added: 'It’s a minefield for parents. You want your children to have freedom and make friends but you want to ensure they are safe when they are online. 'It’s hard enough watching your children 24/7 in the real world, but keeping tabs on their movements online is the real challenge.'


    1. Reading messages on social networking sites

    2. Checking their internet history

    3. Reading their text messages

    4. Monitoring their list of friends on social networking sites

    5. Checking their pictures on social networking sites

    6. Reading their emails

    7. Checking their call list

    8. Finding out their passwords

    9. Asking teachers to keep an eye on their internet use

    10. Getting a sibling to help to snoop

    'Expose all rats': Teen who posted 'witness names and court documents on Twitter' to expose police informants is arrested

    A Philadelphia high school student has been arrested for intimidating witnesses after he allegedly posted witness names and secret court documents on his Twitter account. Police say it was part of a 'stop snitching' effort to get people in his neighborhood to stop cooperating with police. Prosecutors are now pursuing adult charges against Anderson, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. But, some worry he has damaged the ability of police to convince witnesses to come forward in some of Philadelphia's toughest neighborhoods. Investigators are still trying to determine how he was able to get a hold of documents that are not available to the public.

    Prosecutors had recently begun relying heaving on grand juries - secret court hearings - to pursue charges because witnesses can testify in secret, making it less likely they will be intimidated by police. However, it appears that Anderson published some documents and information from confidential grand jury hearings. He allegedly exposed information relating to two shootings in 2012 and a 2007 murder. Anderson has two prior arrests - for robbery and theft.

    The 'no snitching' culture is pervasive in many inner-city neighborhoods, where mistrust of the police runs high. Anderson's mother claims her high school student son wasn't involved in anything illegal. 'He's not a kid that's bad and running around in the street. He's not trying to cause harm to nobody,' Hope Anderson told the Daily News. 'These are . . . children just speaking about their opinion and them not realizing the effect sometimes of what they put on social media.'

    Amber Kraus, Science Teacher, Accused Of Sex With High School Student
    An Illinois science teacher is accused of carrying on a sexual relationship with a student at the high school where she taught.

    Amber Kraus, 30, is charged with criminal sexual assault of a victim between the ages of 13 and 17, and aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Lake County prosecutors say the science teacher admitted having sexual contact with the Grant High School student, but denies that they had sexual intercourse. The victim told police that the two had sex at Kraus' Grayslake, Ill., home, and exchanged inappropriate photos.

    Kraus has since moved to Mundelein, Ill., according to the Lake County Sun-Times. She was released on $10,000 bond and must obey a curfew as a condition of her bail, in addition to avoiding contact with minors, including the victim. The teacher resigned from Grant High School, where she had taught for eight years, after the allegations came to light Oct. 9. In a letter to parents, school administrators called the case an "isolated incident that occurred away from campus and involved no other students," according to the Daily Herald.

    Kraus is not the first Chicago-area teacher to face allegations of sex with a student this year. In August, a 39-year-old instructor at a vocational school in Chicago was arrested after she allegedly had sex in a parked car with a 17-year-old enrolled at the school.

    Drama teacher who asked pupil for sex, played 'who's a 🤬 ?' with her class and got them to mime sex acts is struck off

    A drama teacher who asked a 17-year-old boy for sex and played a game with pupils called Who’s a 🤬 ? has been banned from teaching. Lindsay Black, 28, also urged sixth-formers to mime sexual acts at the Roman Catholic school where she taught, a disciplinary panel was told. She paid particular attention to a teenager who was performing in the school musical, and revealed to pupils that she fantasised about having sex in the drama class and cheating on her fiancé. Black sent text messages, emails and Facebook messages to the 17-year-old boy, asking him to meet up for sex. It was said the schoolboy, referred to as Pupil A, showed other pupils text messages from Black as he rehearsed for We Will Rock You, a show based on the songs of rock band Queen.

    English teacher Abigail Watts said: ‘I heard comments from other pupils about Miss Black liking pupils and I asked what this meant. They said she had been Facebook messaging Pupil A – she told him she had a dream about them having sex.’ She added: ‘They had not met up but they had been talking about it.’ The hearing was told Black ‘flirted’ with the boy during lessons and sent him a message saying how she dreamt about him. The trained actress met the teenager while working on maternity cover at St Joseph’s Roman Catholic High School in Newport, South Wales. She contacted him on Facebook asking about his coursework – then began sending him messages talking about sex and alcohol.

    Black told the boy she had a dream in which she performed a sex act on him, then asked him to meet up with her for sex. A Professional Conduct Committee of the General Teaching Council of Wales heard she even grilled the boy’s girlfriend about their relationship. The hearing was told that Black played a game in which she asked her sixth form class, ‘who’s a 🤬 ?’ and made pupils stand up if they had not yet had sex. She also played a game named ‘I Have Never’ in which she would ask them if they had performed various sex acts. The hearing was told Black then encouraged the teenagers to mime sex acts and spent time talking to pupils about sex. When Black was confronted by the head of drama she told him it was just an exercise to get pupils ‘into character’.

    Colleague Sandra Davies said: b that during drama classes Miss Black would talk about sex and she turned the lessons on to a sexual theme. She said she wanted to cheat on her fiancé once before getting married and that she fantasised about having sex on a table in the drama class. ‘They played a game called “I Have Never” where she would ask them things [about sex]. She would then get the pupils to act out the acts in question.’ The hearing in Cardiff was told how Pupil A’s academic performance had suffered as a result of the messages and he had to re-sit his AS levels. Black was interviewed by police following the allegations in 2011 but no further action was taken.

    She later admitted engaging in inappropriate and sexually explicit conversations with a pupil via Facebook.

    Black, who did not attend the hearing, denied talking to her class about sex and said the pupils had made up the allegations. But the panel found she had held discussions of an ‘inappropriate and sexually explicit nature’ with pupils. They found her actions amount to unacceptable professional conduct and banned her from teaching. Committee chairman Peter Williams said: ‘The conduct in question seriously affected pupils and was not an isolated lapse. Black’s actions are fundamentally incompatible with being a registered teacher.’ Black declined to comment at her house in Pontypridd after the hearing. Paul Bennett, chairman of governors at St Joseph’s RC High School, said: ‘The school takes allegations of unprofessional conduct very seriously and acts swiftly when such allegations are made.’
