When I was in high school, math teachers usually used word problems involving train speeds or at its most bizarre, assassinating Eisenhower to demonstrate basic math principles. (Because I am from the northeast and because I am so old!) But one Jefferson Country geometry teacher decided to bring his class into the 21st century with a dose of AlabamaCrazy.0
The teacher was apparently teaching his geometry students about parallel lines and angles, officials said. He used the example of where to stand and aim if shooting Obama.
"He was talking about angles and said, ‘If you’re in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president,’ " said Joseph Brown, a senior in the geometry class.
Get this – the teacher wasn’t fired, either. A Secret Service agent said they "did not find a credible threat" and that the investigation is closed. Okay, maybe the teacher wasn’t drawing up plans to assassinate the president and maybe the teacher’s unionized and it’s hard as hell to fire those fuckers barring completely inappropriate behavior, but this is completely inappropriate behavior. Most of our teachers from high school weren’t too memorable, but it’s nice when you can remember them for something like encouraging your talents and not for creating a county-wide investigation.
