Cal-Berkeley Instructor sends inflammatory Facebook message to conservative author

The Daily Californian

reports:

Campus jazz trumpet instructor Ellen Seeling sent Mike Cernovich, a conservative author and media persona, a controversial Facebook message Friday in response to his denial that date rape exists.

Seeling sent a private Facebook message to Cernovich criticizing his statements regarding date rape, using many expletives. In October, Cernovich released a controversial article on his website discussing date rape that said “the entire concept of ‘date rape’ is damaging to men and women.”

“I think that you’re a prick who claims date rape doesn’t exist,” Seeling said in the Facebook message. “If yes, f*** you up the a** with a poisoned broomstick c***s***. We s*** in your mouth.”

Seeling said that last week she saw a screenshot of a tweet Cernovich made stating there’s no such thing as date rape. She then decided to message him privately.

“That really pissed me off,” Seeling said. “I am so tired of these rape advocates not having any repercussions for what they say. It was the last straw.”

Comrade Seeling appears to be angry.

Judge halted execution plan, then participated in death-penalty protest

The New York Post

reports:

An Arkansas judge who barred the state from hurriedly executing eight inmates attended a death-penalty rally just hours later — even posing as a condemned man as part of the protest.

Soon after Friday’s ruling, Judge Wendell Griffen attended the rally outside the Governor’s Mansion, where he lay tied to a cot as other protesters held anti-death- penalty signs behind him.

Griffen’s participation in the rally sparked outrage among death-penalty supporters.

Republican lawmakers condemned the display as judicial misconduct, and called for his removal from the bench.

The judge that reveals his real occupation : a protester.

‘Mere negligence’: Court reinstates principal fired in Philly cheating scandal

Eag News

reports:

A Philadelphia principal who was fired in connection with a standardized test cheating scandal may get her job back after a three-judge panel ruled in her favor Thursday.

The panel found no evidence that former Tilden Middle School principal Michelle Burns was involved in cheating discovered at the school and ruled her 2014 termination was an overly harsh punishment for “mere negligence,” Philly.com reports.

“Although the cheating which occurred at Tilden is abhorrent and must be rooted out, the arbitrator found only that Burns failed to uncover it and prevent it,” according to the Commonwealth Court ruling. “Thus, we cannot conclude an award reinstating an administrator after finding her guilty of mere negligence violates a fundamental public policy.”

The great moments of government schools.
