9News- Parents at a US school are livid that six teachers filmed playing the game "f---, marry, kill" about students during a drinking session at a local bar have kept their jobs.
The group of teachers were filmed surreptitiously sometime in mid-January at the Bangor Tavern in Michigan discussing students and other staff members. The premise of the game involves a person being given three names, and having to select which of the three they would hypothetically kill, marry, or have sex with.
The video circulated around the small town several weeks ago before coming to public attention on Monday when it was posted on YouTube.
But after a school and police investigation, it was concluded that no teacher would lose their jobs, although a secretary resigned. The teachers were instead given written or verbal reprimands, angering parents at a fiery meeting held yesterday.
"When I hear off-campus or off-duty conduct, we can't regulate what teachers, school staff, bus drivers do, unless it has an adverse effect on the school setting," school attorney Robert Huber said.
(Disclaimer: I'm assuming these are high school teachers, and if they aren't then completely ignore the following.)
I can't believe it. I simply can't believe it. A bunch of whiney parents who are probably lucky their kids' teachers aren't actually fucking, marrying, or (mostly) killing their bratty sons and daughters threw a fit and an employer actually stood by its employees?! Maybe there is hope for humanity after all! Take notes ESPN, because this is a win for society. Hell, this is a win for anyone that's sat in a bar, had a drink, and said whatever the fuck they were feeling at the time. As far as I am concerned, an Irish pub is basically the non-churchgoer's confessional. Whatever gets said inside the friendly confines of the local watering hole should be confidential. Especially when it's said during a harmless game about kids that undoubtedly give the "players" an endless amount of grief.
If you think teachers - that aren't paid nearly enough to deal with the bullshit that results from a room full of teenagers - stand on some moral high ground then you should have been deemed too stupid to conceive. Shit, show me a teacher that isn't a borderline alcoholic who has no problem putting a voice to their homicidal fantasies and I'll show you a teacher that's at risk of murdering his/her students. You know what kind of teacher is too scared to talk about boning a student in a hypothetical scenario? The type of teacher that ends up in a mugshot after turning an inexperienced boy into one lucky man. If I asked one of the many (often irresponsible) teachers that I know to do a 'FMK' featuring their students in confidence and they scoffed at me then I would instantly hire a private investigator. If people who put up with shit from hormonal assholes all goddamned day won't get their frustrations out by saying something fucked up then they are absolutely at risk of doing it.
