I can understand that emotions are all over the place in the aftermath of a tragedy. There is always the feeling that something should be done to prevent such tragedies from happening again. In the wake of a mass shooting, there’s always a call for increased gun control legislation.
Now, I am not a gun nut; however, I fail to see how gun control deters gun crime. Let’s look at the statistics. Detroit, Michigan, has the highest per capita murder rate of any American city – 54.6 for every 100,000 inhabitants – according to the ever-reliable Wikipedia. If Detroit were its own country, it would just beat Venezuela for second place as the most murderous country in the world. The American city with the lowest per capita murder rate? Gun nut central: Plano, Texas, with 0.4.
I don’t know it just seems to me that gun control only serves to disarm law abiding citizens, making the job of the criminal much easier.
In all of these recent cases involving female teachers having sex with their male students, there seems to be one common denominator. These women are only caught because someone overhears their “victims” bragging about it. Now, I don’t want anyone to get the impression that I condone this behavior. Any teacher that has sex with a student should be immediately terminated and never be allowed to teach again. The fact that there’s a double standard in how these cases are dealt with disgusts me. If the gender roles were reversed, if a male teacher had sex with a female student, he would be crucified. A hot blonde, on the other hand, gets a slap on the wrist. That being said: If you’re a 16-year-old boy, and you’re lucky enough to bed your hot teacher, do yourself a favor and keep your damn mouth shut.
This is getting ridiculous! Brianne Altice, the Utah “teacher with benefits” is facing more felony charges after one of her students revealed the two had sex AFTER her initial arrest for rape charges.
Okay, I get it. Every red-blooded male who remembers his depraved adolescence has probably been “hot for teacher” at least once. That’s why there’s such a blatant double standard in these cases. However, to allow a legal loophole for blonde, Barbie-looking hotness would undermine the rule of law. Moreover, if you allow attractive teachers to get away with banging jailbait, the ugly ones that get caught doing the same thing would claim their prosecution was unfair.
