"Julie Amero, a substitute teacher in Norwich, Connecticut, has been convicted of... risking injury to a minor..."Show me the guns, the knives, the re-bars, the anvils.. I don't see injury here. Seeing a little bit of porn doesn't break bones - and in the long run, probably wouldn't do much of anything - even mentally - to the most prudish of those students.
"A few students were crowded around a PC; some were giggling."I'd have to say that the potential for even emotional injury just went down quite a bit.
"This is nothing but a return to the witch trials in New England..."Years of FUBAR news have already caused me to lose faith in this portion of a famous Patriotic writing:
"...and Justice for all."Last time I checked, Justice is not the malicious prosecution of persons who had no intent to do wrong.
