Man arrested for fake video based on elementary school performance
CNN reports a case where a first grade class (in Pennsylvania?) teacher invited a singer to make a presentation. The singer recorded and then edited the presentation and posted a YouTube video to make it look like the kids had listened to porn. The singer was arrested, although it’s not clear that he broke the law in a technical sense.
On my main “Bill Boushka” blog I’ve covered a number of cases of teachers fired or suspended for blog content or Facebook (including my own back in 2005), but this is the first where there was obviously objectionable content involving children. In the other cases, the speakers had a reasonable moral foundation for their actions.
