17 Slime Ball Perverts - WOMEN TEACHERS Molesting Students

Perverts to the left of us. Perverts to the right of us. Perverts in the news. In the post below a slimeball pervert sexually abused a little dog. I recommended hanging him by his yingyang and a friend suggested whacking his weenie. But what do we suggest for WOMEN who molest our CHILDREN, the youngest victim was TWELVE years old! ?? I know what I would have done if it happened to one of mine when they were minors, but then I'd have been the one going to jail.

It's a good thing old Worried is gone for the holidays with her family or she might delete this subject. But she's not here, I'm posting in her absence, so I'm spreading the word about perverts in our schools. Have "the talk" with your kiddos and teeners.

PS: Remember, these perverts are only a tiny fraction of the teacher population. Most educators are NORMAL, good, decent, dedicated teachers.

...and where are the 'hottie teachers' in this group? What a sad homely lookin' bunch of educators--not at all what horny 13 Y.O. boys fantisize about. Makes you really question the intelligence/taste/sanity of today's youth.

Hi! our multicolored frog! GLAD to see him back as avatar. Old Worried will be tickled pink. She oughta be back soon from family holiday.

I've had a bit of experience rearing pubescent/teen boys and You were one once. So you know that when the hormones start to rage and an experienced woman puts the blast on such a boy, the hormones win no matter what she looks like. 2 were actually real pretty so you wonder what their problem was to make them mess with kids when they could have easily got MEN! Sicko perverts!

Hate You? Snark? Remember your motto: "A day without snark is a day without sunshine". Hell fire. Old Worried, Granny and I luv u!!

I'm gonna get banged for this, just as sure as God made hormones. but fortunately I'm no longer a virgin. Where to start.....

Teachers have so many more expectations placed on them now than they did 20-30 years ago. It's much easier to cost a teacher his/her job with allegations not yet proven fact, in this politically correct climate. Teachers are more underpaid than ever, leading many of the best to quit the profession, and "lesser" capable persons fill their shoes, as school boards desperate to just put somebody in the classroom, take what they can get, due to the long financial drought they've been in.

Much of what is euphemistically called "kids" are High School age going on thirty. Their parent(s) is in jail, their home is a gang infested drug house, and the best meal (and often only) they eat of the day is in the HS cafeteria.

They latch on to anybody that shows they care, mistaking concern for caresses. Take second and third rate Teachers, many of whom have so many psychological problems they shouldn't be around kids at all, MUCH less in a position of authority, add one starved for any sign of affection "kid" and the end result is inevitable. Lonely hormone + unstable hormone = sexual activity. Then too, there is the plain old never changing 15-18 yr old teen "so horny I'd fuck a rusty keyhole", and some very, very bad decisions are made.

I don't condone sexual abuse, be it of minors, or old farts. But until the ingredients that fuel the fires are replaced with non-flammable parts, shit is going to happen, and a lot of it, put simply.

You will not get banged by any of the authors on this blog. You are correct and made some excellent points.

Pedophiles of either gender naturally gravitate to places where children may be found. Many are teachers, scout leaders, etc.. in order to be near their prey. The entire population of educators must not be judged by these perverts!

These perverts may be found in all walks of life, but the majority of teachers, scout leaders, officers of the law, religious leaders, and others should never be judged by the sickos.

One of my uncles was a dedicated and gifted teacher of mathematics.He was a strict but fair teacher and his graduates aced the college entrance exams. He was highly respected in the educational comunities.

In north Africa, I volunteered as an aide at our American school for children of the expatriates working for the 3 main petro-chemical companies contracted there. The employees came from many nations and although they usually could speak English, most of the foreign children did not. It was like a little United Nations and was a 3 ring circus educating them in English. Most of the teachers worked extremely hard meeting the challenges. I admired them tremendously.

It is a fact that many very good educators leave the profession for better paying jobs. It is our loss that teachers' salaries are so low budgeted. When staff is insufficient, replacements must be hired and sometimes persons of poor character and qualifications. It is one of my pet peeves that sports figures and vapid Hollywood types are so much better paid than the professionals who shape and mold the minds of future generations.

Hang The Perverted Slimeball By His Ying-Yang!!

Man accused of sexually abusing family's dog facing felony torture charge

06:10 PM EDT on Monday, October 13, 2008

Watch this story

Video takes a few moments to start

(WHAS11) - A Louisville man is jailed, charged with torturing a family member's dog. Authorities say it may not have been the first time he's been accused of that type of behavior.

Watch this story

A spokeswoman at Metro Animal Control says its the first time she can remember in her 5-year history at the agency that someone's been charged with sexually abusing an animal, but the person reporting the crime says the same man may have injured another of their pets.

What we can tell you for sure is that a 1-year-old cocker spaniel mix is recovering from serious injuries while the last person left alone with her faces a felony charge.

A warning to our viewers, some of what you are about to hear is extremely disturbing and might not be appropriate for children.

When Linda Bussey and other family members returned from a birthday party Sunday, Oreo, a black-and-white cocker spaniel mix she brought home from a flea market last year, was yelping.

Thomas Bussey, 53, had been left alone in the apartment with Oreo. He is Linda Bussey's brother-in-law.

Thomas ran away after being confronted by the family, but family members later found him a short time later, tackled him and held him for police.

He's now charged with felony torture of a dog.

Oreo is recovering from her wounds at the metro animal shelter.

We were not allowed to shoot video of her, since the case is under investigation.

Police are now also looking into whether Thomas Bussey was involved in the death of a cat belonging to the same family last year after it received suspicious injuries.

If Bussey gets released from jail, he'll not be welcome back at the apartment or anywhere near the family's pets again.

Metro animal control says that Oreo must be spayed and get current on her shots before she can be released to her owners.

As for Bussey, he's scheduled to have his first court appearance Tuesday morning.

Anniversary of Assasination of President John F. Kennedy

JFK anniversary marked at Dallas shooting site

Bill Newman points to the spot he and his wife Gayle, left, were located when AP – Bill Newman points to the spot he and his wife Gayle, left, were located when President John F. Kennedy …

DALLAS – About 500 people crowded Saturday into the plaza where John F. Kennedy was shot 45 years ago, all agreeing it was right to remember a pivotal moment in American history, even if they didn't all believe the official line.

People stood shoulder to shoulder and bowed their heads during a moment of silence at 12:30 p.m. Some hawked JFK memorabilia or pitched conspiracy theories to visitors. Others offered firsthand accounts of their memories of the killing.

Visiting from Pipersville, Penn., 66-year-old Barbara Koenig said coming to the site was something she needed to do.

"I remember the day of the assassination, and I've always wanted to visit this site," she said. "It's just an eerie feeling. It kind of takes you back 45 years to what you were doing and thinking about the whole tragedy of the affair. I burst into tears (then). In fact, I'm ready to cry now."

Nearby, street vendors held out commemorative newspapers hoping would-be customers would buy them. One person roamed the crowd with a sign questioning whether it was a lone gunman who killed Kennedy or several.

A group of men who wore black suits, matching ties and earpieces stood silent and appeared to guard a large black banner behind them.

The day Kennedy was assassinated is one people should always remember, but its truth still has not been entirely revealed, argued John Judge, head of the Coalition On Political Assassinations, a Washington-based organization that researches political assassinations.

Judge believes Kennedy's assassination was a government conspiracy and could easily be solved if all of the facts were revealed.

"If the case were to be honestly investigated or if a grand jury could open it up, we could get at it," he said. "I think (people) want to remember a piece of their history that was stolen from them."

On Saturday, two Xs spray-painted in the street marked the spots where Kennedy was hit as his motorcade drove through the plaza. A placard from the National Park Service stood on the ground directly across from one X.

For 68-year-old Ann Murphy, news of Kennedy's assassination stunned her when it reached her and other teachers in Toronto. She was in disbelief when school officials announced, "President Kennedy has been shot in Dallas," she said.

Murphy stayed glued to her father's grainy, black-and-white television set for more news on the events unfolding in the United States. She was even more stunned when she saw nightclub owner Jack Ruby later shoot the suspect in Kennedy's assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald, on live television, Murphy said.

"It's strange," she said, "that one man's influence and popularity would extend well outside his own country."

Excerpt: Gravestone inscription, from inaugural address January 20, 1961

"And so my fellow Americans
Ask not what your country can do for you
Ask what you can do for your country
My fellow citizens of the world - ask not
What America can do for you - but what together
We can do for the freedom of man"

" man's influence and popularity would extend well outside his own country."
I noted this in my travels around the world. In the early 1980s in north Africa, a small Arab boy accosted me on the street, eager to communicate with the American woman. With a wide grin he made a thumbs-up motion and said, "Kennedy, good!" As he was far too young to even have been born during the president's administration, this indicated to me that he learned about President Kennedy by listening to adult conversations. In speaking with the Arab natives, each spoke well of President Kennedy although they sometimes spoke disparagingly of some of our other presidents. I do not need to speculate about their opinion of our current president.

Racist Threats Around the Country

Obama has more threats than other presidents-elect

President-elect Obama talks on his cell phone after boarding his plane at AP – President-elect Obama talks on his cell phone after boarding his plane at Washington's Reagan National …

WASHINGTON – Threats against a new president historically spike right after an election, but from Maine to Idaho law enforcement officials are seeing more against Barack Obama than ever before. The Secret Service would not comment or provide the number of cases they are investigating. But since the Nov. 4 election, law enforcement officials have seen more potentially threatening writings, Internet postings and other activity directed at Obama than has been seen with any past president-elect, said officials aware of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the issue of a president's security is so sensitive.

Earlier this week, the Secret Service looked into the case of a sign posted on a tree in Vay, Idaho, with Obama's name and the offer of a "free public hanging." In North Carolina, civil rights officials complained of threatening racist graffiti targeting Obama found in a tunnel near the North Carolina State University campus.

And in a Maine convenience store, an Associated Press reporter saw a sign inviting customers to join a betting pool on when Obama might fall victim to an assassin. The sign solicited $1 entries into "The Osama Obama Shotgun Pool," saying the money would go to the person picking the date closest to when Obama was attacked. "Let's hope we have a winner," said the sign, since taken down.

(Excerpt: • Just before the election, two skinheads in Tennessee were charged with plotting to behead blacks across the country and assassinate Obama while wearing white top hats and tuxedos.

Obama election spurs race crimes around country

Signs hang on the office door of University of Alabama professor Marsha L. AP – Signs hang on the office door of University of Alabama professor Marsha L. Houston, Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008

Cross burnings. Schoolchildren chanting "Assassinate Obama." Black figures hung from nooses. Racial epithets scrawled on homes and cars.

Incidents around the country referring to President-elect Barack Obama are dampening the postelection glow of racial progress and harmony, highlighting the stubborn racism that remains in America.

From California to Maine, police have documented a range of alleged crimes, from vandalism and vague threats to at least one physical attack. Insults and taunts have been delivered by adults, college students and second-graders.

There have been "hundreds" of incidents since the election, many more than usual, said Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate crimes. Click">here for rest of article.

Hate Takes a Hit Today

Sometimes the good guys win.

From the Southern Poverty Law Center:

We won a great victory today in our lawsuit against the Imperial Klans of America (IKA) and its leader, Ron Edwards.

The jury awarded a $2.5 million verdict to our client, Jordan Gruver, who was brutally beaten by IKA members while attending a county fair in Brandenburg, Ky.

The people of Meade County, Kentucky, have spoken loudly and clearly. And what they've said is that ethnic violence has no place in our society, that those who promote hate and violence will be held accountable and made to pay a steep price.

Jordan is understandably gratified by the verdict. And he's relieved that the ordeal of the trial is over, though he will never fully recover from his nightmare.

We know the IKA does not have the assets to pay the full verdict. But we look forward to collecting every dime that we can for Jordan and to putting this violent organization out of business.

Details about the case and verdict are available on our website.

We've received numerous messages of support over the past few days. We greatly appreciate your commitment to tolerance and justice.

This is beyond great news!! The wins they have gained hurt the haters where it hurts the most - in their financial assets. Going to prison takes them off the street but also makes them "heroes for the cause" in the minds of other haters.

This undated photo obtained from a MySpace webpage shows Daniel Cowart, 20 of Bells, Tenn. holding a weapon. Federal agents have broken up a plot to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate (now President Elect) Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. and shoot or decapitate 102 black people in a Tennessee murder spree, the ATF said Monday Oct. 27, 2008. In court records unsealed Monday, federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school by two neo-Nazi skinheads. The men, Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of West Helena, Ark., are being held without bond.

Hate never ends
Other hate crimes:

Klan Sued by SPLC on behalf of beaten teenager

a 16-year-old boy, 5-feet, 3-inches tall and 150 pounds, against two reputed Ku Klux Klansmen, the biggest standing 6-feet, 5-inches and tipping the scales at 300 pounds.
Jordan Gruver, an American citizen of Panamanian descent, took a beating that July day in 2006 at the Meade County fair in Brandenberg, Kentucky. He was called names, spat upon, doused with alcohol, knocked to the ground and punched and kicked.

When the blows stopped, Gruver had a broken jaw and left forearm, two cracked ribs and cuts and bruises.

Jarred Hensley - IKA's Grand Titan - one of men who beat and kicked teen with steel toed boots.

.Excerpt from an email:

Led by Imperial Wizard Ron Edwards, the IKA is one of the largest and most dangerous Klan organizations in the country. Each year, Edwards hosts a "white-power" rally at his compound, where he indoctrinates followers in hate and violence through speeches, music and the display of violent, racist imagery. They even bring little children to this festival of hate.

You may recall that our client, Jordan Gruver, was attacked by Klansmen who had attended one of Edwards' white-power rallies and were recruiting for the IKA at a county fair. They thought Jordan was, in their words, an "illegal spic." Jordan, who's a U.S. citizen, suffered serious injuries, including a broken jaw.[...]

Update Day 1 of trial: You can read more coverage of the trial on our blog. (SPLC excerpt)

In 2007 I posted about this hate crime against the teen by a hate group at:

In this post - Photo of one of the brave "heroes" involved in viciously beating teen aged boy because he had brown skin (a US citizen of Panamanian Indian descent - the haters thought he was a "spic", illegal alien). and continued at:

more details about the case.

Another post about a hate crime although it was prosecuted as a "sexual assault":

Another hate crime, particularly brutal and sadistic. A long post, relating the teenager's horrific suffering, his bravery in testifying in Washington (in vain - vetoed to protect Fundies and other religious groups who might preach against homosexuality - although the crime was racist, not gay. David was Hispanic, not gay).

Children learn by example from role models or peers.They are born innocent without hate or prejudice.

I was struck by this when I was shopping in Krogers. On an aisle I met a young African American couple with a small baby in a carrier seat on their cart. I like babies and looked directly at the little person, who responded to me by spreading his little mouth in a huge smile. So sweet, so innocent, friendly and happy. It didn't matter to him that the person confronting him was old and white. I have noted the same reaction in white babies when responding to black persons smiling at them. They don't care about color, gender or age. It is only later as they are growing up that they learn hate and prejudice.

I recall the incident of a small white child touching a black person to see if the "chocolate" rubbed off; childish curiosity, not in any way prejudicial.

My first encounter with a black person when I was a child on my grandparents' farm. A very large black man had been hired as a field hand during cotton picking season. He was very black, wore a shirt with the sleeves cut out and sweated profusely in the hot south Texas sun. I was fascinated by his appearance of being made of wet licorice and suppressed a temptation to taste him. I knew nothing of racial hatred.
