What does it say about the level of civility in America today when anyone – much less a school teacher – goes berserk screaming obscenities at folks peacefully demonstrating? Yes, emotions are extremely high right now in the United States. But is the behavior in the video below ever appropriate?
“A first-year teacher with Jefferson County School District 509-J has been placed on leave pending an investigation after being identified as the woman in a video that went viral of a shouting encounter with a Bend group protesting the state’s COVID-19 restrictions,” according to television station KTVZ.
“More than 2 million people had viewed the Twitter and Facebook posts by Monday of the 55-second video in which the woman, driving a car, screamed at chanting downtown Bend protesters, most not wearing masks: “Kill yourself! I’m a teacher! I work in schools! My student’s families are dying!”
“There were also obscenities and obscene gestures as well, before she waved and smiled at the person taking the video, then drove away.”
