    For every teacher you read about who has been charged with these sick acts, there are thousands who do not commit such crimes. You rarely hear a news story about teachers who do not commit crimes.

    The school has a history of teachers taking advantage of it's students. Look it up, October 1999 a teacher was arrested for multiple sex crime charges, the Principal was forced to leave the school for getting a minor pregnant, and now this guy...
