    Fox News Sucks.

    You're right, he was a first year under Kansas.

    Latham was in his first year of teaching at Lawrence High School but has been a teacher for almost 20 years. Prior to teaching in Kansas, Latham was a teacher in Arkansas
    Lawrence teacher says he was fired because of his politics — Kansas Liberty

    Well, that opens things up quite a bit. First year teachers can get terminated for all sorts of stuff. And stuff that would get the school sued if they terminated a tenure teacher for.

    Well, my fault. That's what I get for trusting Fox to get the basics right. Lesson learned.

    I expect Fox to screw up the conclusion. Not the basic underlying facts of the situation.

    God I hate mainstream US news outlets. Can't even get the basic facts straight.

    We have employment tribunals over here, they deal with contested dismissals, do you?

    I love it how liberals are quick to pull the "he SAID HE CLAIMED" bull**** on this sort of allegation.

    But when a ghetto thug teenager is shot by the police and the parents of this ghetto thug "SAY... CLAIM... STATE... ARGUE" that their son is a sweet little angel who has only been in trouble a few times (more like dozen) in his life and they know the police did the wrong thing, blah blah.

    Then the liberals want to slam the police for doing such a evil thing like shooting a poor black kid.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Unfortunately douchebag liberals do this all the time when Police refused to comment on an ongoing investigation after some incident where folks claim police brutality or unlawful shooting or something to that effect.

    Once again......just because the accused chooses not to give a statement....you automatically assume they are guilty? The police brutality thing is, more often than not, caught on video tape, therefore the case is usually clear cut. Besides, that happens every day so people are not too interested in debating that subject. However, this teacher claiming he got fired based on his political views, is basically like saying a black teacher got fired because he is black. That would cause a huge uproar from one particular group of citizens...black people. So by jumping to conclusions for one side or the other on this case, you are doing nothing more but showing your own bias beliefs and not waiting for the FACTS before making your mind up.

    Case is never clear cut.
    Over half of the cases start with a subject on the ground, missing the most important part of the controvesy.

    Im not talking about viral videos here, im talking about accidents where police injure citizens, im talking about shootings, police chase incidents.

    Im not talking about stupid ass viral videos of some 17 year old pothead baiting the police to get publicity.

    So you must be one of the people who believe the police do no wrong, and if they beat someone's ass, that person must have been selling drugs or fighting the cops. Well how pathetic it is that people don't see the corruption in our police force. I personally know an officer who works for the City of Moore OK, who every time I talk to him he's got a new story of other officers using their power to do something illegal like robbing people during traffic stops.

    Anyways, this is a different topic than the original topic, I'm getting off the cop topic.. It does nothing but piss me off.

    However, I do agree that just because an agency, company, or school district for that matter....doesn't release a comment regarding the accusations, people for some reason automatically jump to the conclusion that they are guilty.. It is quite pathetic.
