Regardless of the verdict people in supervisory positions have no right to touch employee's for any reason. If the principal had grounds for action it should have been sent to the school board for review and action. The principal demonstrated poor judgement and IMO is not qualified to remain in that position or at least needs to be placed on probation.
With out knowing the full story behind this matter the teacher should IMO also face a review board to examine her actions as well and if found to have acted with poor judgement should be properly punished as well.
Any adult that can't act with restraint in that type of position is not suited for the job and should find a new line of work.
I don't think Alto was saying that people should not comment on the story. He was actually saying that he wasn't going to comment.
AltonEaston have you considered that some people have concerns on this type of issue and there is a thing called freedom of speech. Have you considered that some people on this posting have children or have children that have attended the said schools (all in VISD) that the said principal was at. That in itself gives them the right to speak.
So sad to see comments from individuals with no profile or prior comment history, other than on this issue. I have not seen any court transcript on this case or did I attend the court during this case, so I have not enough data to properly comment on this case.
Zero, have you ever heard of the expression, let sleeping dogs lie? You might want to take that into consideration when criticizing the way the DA has handled criminal cases. This case was presented to a jury of their peers and found not guilty, not short circuited like it was in the Bruce Ure felony perjury case. In this case, we learned what evidende the DA had as opposed to the perjury case of Bruce Ure where we have never heard what the evidence was. You might recall that in the Ure case, the judge shut down the legal proceedings and muzzled DA Tyler. We still don't know what the alleged perjury was in the Bruce Ure case to this day. Judge Williams dismissed the charges against Bruce Ure, he was not found not guilty by a jury of his peer as in was in this case.
Just the tip of the iceberg Zero? Perhaps you are right.
According to what I have been told there is an emergency board meeting being held at 12:00 (noon) in order to discuss this issue.
As far as the legal comments are concerned, it is absolutely disgraceful how the DA's office handled this. People should not comment on things they know nothing about. ADA Kelley was made to look like an incompetent fool yesterday and Victoria's legal system a joke.
sounds like pinklady has some first hand knowledge she would like to share. do you?
I know what you mean, hiptydipty1.Kind of makes you sigh and shake your head, doesn't it?
Shame on the DA. A bully is back at school. God bless our teachers.
Nice to see all the legal experts weighing in again...
This is just the tip of the iceberg. From here, we will see DA Steve Tyler appeal the decision, fail to file the correct appeal paperwork on time, fail to explain his behavior and have the case tossed out by the appellate court. In a public statement, DA Steve Tyler will blame the contract appellate attorney and ADA Kelley for this disaster. What DA Steve Tyler WILL NOT say is why this case was ever brought and what "evidence" existed of wrong doing. In the meantime, this will have cost the taxpayers over $100,000 in squandered effort and opportunity.
It is so easy to guess the future when the dimwits in charge keep repeating themselves over and over and over again.
The ADA trying this case should be ashamed.
