Admins- Please feel free to move if it's in the wrong section!


High-school welding classes always carry a high risk of injury but last week one lesson took a bizarrely dangerous turn. In an apparent attempt to get his students' attention one welding teacher lined up his class against a wall, pulled a gun from his waistband and fired multiple rounds of blanks.


I have always supported alternative teaching methods, but this is not one I could have ever conceived! I guess it's one way of dealing with unruly students...(joke)

A little bit on the crazy side!

I'm a little mixed with my feelings on this one. Sometimes I think kids are lacking in some areas where this kind of thing could help.

Catch me on another day and I'd probably have something to say about the teacher.

Oh well...

Still better than the whole kidnapping to teach kids thing



I think the real problem in this case was that the same effect could have been had with a really large blowhorn. And the fact that a starter pistol was used, simply shows malice of the educator, trying to get psychological rise (cause damage) out of the students.

I know there are a lot of really stupid teachers out there, and I mean STUPID. But this guy is not just stupid, he's freakin' crazy.

Like you, I'm all for actually engaging students in different ways, but this is not even beyond common sense, it's beyond the limits of all basic reason.

I'll be the first to agree this guy should not be teaching. He probably shouldn't be trusted with a sharp implement of any kind. Not because he's a violent threat necessarily, but because a guy who is this stupid probably needs a specialized carer to enable him to make the correct choices in life - ie, how to breathe, wash himself, chew etc...

Times have changed. Back in my day the worst we got was the threat of the principal's fabled "electric paddle" which I found out much later didn't exist. That being said, I'm 100% in favor of gun rights and this completely careless idiot needs to be in jail for a long time.

This guy is jut nuts.

I'm all for better discipline for students but this... well, that's just craziness.

There was another incident where a small engine repair teacher would give a disruptive student a choice, either hold on to a spark plug after 3 pulls of the lawnmower engine or receive a 1 hour detention. The majority of the students chose the spark plug!


I'm not condoning what this teacher did, but some of these kids don't have any logical thinking skills. By the way, this teacher was removed from his teaching duties.

could just be a grift, cause you know there is going to be some litigation's over it and the teachers will not be the one paying for it, well they may get criminal charges or something brought against them, etc.., however the school district insurance policy, will pay out big time to the claimants, that is, if they have insurance, as one would expect, however if they do or don't, they still going to be liable and have to pay up, so it falls back on the taxpayers and maybe there are a few students, who are related to the teachers or in on it, and it was staged... ?

side note, forgot to mention, once I was attacked by a teacher in school for being punished for some other students actions, that I was not involved with and not accepting any punishment and refused detention, and he retired and no charges were filed..

The lesson would have been learned by the teacher in such a case.

So, from my understanding, he would know my thinking process by "Acting" as a father of one of these kids. Taking my 9MM with blanks, force him against the wall an unload a clip of "harmless" blanks.

If he doesn't go to jail, a father will shoot him dead IMHO

Peace, I may get to emotional and by a ticket to pay a visit, just a thought and I'm not taking action, WTF, Really??



BTW S&F for the find, I hope that justice is served stale and cold for this so-called teacher

Sounds like the highly educated intellectual community is falling deeper and deeper into the failure hole.

They just can't seem to solve the problems they have created.

Welcome to the grown up "Ritalin Generation" running the nuthouse.

Somehow, I don't think that being disruptive or annoying or horsing around really warrants being lined up against the wall and threatened with your life.

But I'm one of those weirdos that believes in the punishment fitting the crime.

who carries a loaded gun to school with blanks anyways, sounds like big scam, all around, even if gun is loaded with blanks, still sounds like criminal charges should be filed against the culprits....

Ugh, another idiot that I have the misfortune of sharing the same profession with. People like him are the reason why I'm getting out of the education system entirely. I can't stand being scrutinized for the actions of idiots like him.

I too thought he was crazy initially, when I thought it was a real handgun. But now I just think he's an innovator. Of course this was wrong, but I don't think he "endangered" any of the students, physically speaking; but emotionally, who knows? Maybe. When I was in school it wasn't that difficult to shut up and pay attention. And if you couldn't pay attention, at least shut up. I mean how hard is that? Kids are becoming freakin' morons imo...Not all, but many. So I can understand why he did it I suppose.

It's a small thing, but this was reported a day earlier in the US, and it was a more complete story.

And a day before that at www.kgw.com...

We dont know the atmosphere of the class and since it is a small class they may be more familiar with each other. From what i do remember these types of classes are not particularly serious so he may use the argument that "they knew I wouldn't actually shoot them". There is no argument that it was not wrong though.
