Court Date For Teacher Charged With Showing Porn To Students

A Halifax County middle school band teacher charged with showing students a pornographic video in the classroom was due in court Wednesday.

Archie McLeod III, 51, was arrested in December for showing the video to students at William R. Davie Middle School in Roanoke Rapids.

School officials said a student used a cell phone camera to record the teacher showing the pornographic video to students.

McLeod faces 11 counts of disseminating obscene material to minors and 11 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    this SHOULD explain WHY 95% of the white students are MISSING from the Hal. Co. Sch. System!! America is #26 in education while Japan/China are #1 and #2!! Our kids are getting dumber and dumber because they DONT CARE about getting an education - only dream of becoming a RAPPER!! IF I WAS A BLACK PARENT, I WOULD BE IN THE MEDIA ALONG WITH THE NAACP, JESSE JACKSON AND OTHER BLACK LEADERS ABOUT RAPPERS VIOLENT AND DESTRUCTIVE LYRICS AND THE EFFECTS IT IS HAVING ON OUR BLACK YOUTH!!! They have become extremely aggressive towards EACH OTHER and constantly hitting on each other.....AGGRESSION BREEDS VIOLENCE!!! Wake up parents and make some noise - these rappers are getting rich poisoning YOUR KID'S MINDS WHILE YOU SIT BACK AND DO NOTHING BUT LISTEN TO SAME YOURSELVES!! Black kids are graduating that cannot read a 3rd grade book THKS TO "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" law!! This is what happens when you LOWER academics to accomodate kids that cannot achieve on the grade level that coincides with their age!!! TOO MANY BEHAVORIAL PROBLEMS IN OUR SCHOOLS BECAUSE PARENTS DO NOT DISCIPLINE OR TEACH THEIR KIDS RESPECT AND RESPONSIBILITY ANYMORE!! THEY MAY NOT CAN READ, BUT THEY CAN SING EVERY RAP LYRIC WHICH CONSISTS OF MURDER, ROBBERY, GANGSTERS, HO'S AND THE DEGRADATION OF WOMEN!! Unfortunately, TOO MANY PARENTS DONT CARE ENOUGH TO MAKE SOME NOISE which is WHY our education system IS FAILING!!

    To Homeschool mom do you really think you are educated enough to teach your child from K-12 grades? Teachers aren't they normally teach one or two subjects per grade level.

    Halifax county has slid into third world country status. Home school your children or move to another County.

    This man really needs to have his head examined. That is crazy behavior. I would be curious to see the events that led to this. Was the tape/DVD mis-marked or was he consciously aware that he was exposing juveniles to adult material?
