USA: Land of Injustice

I.C. - Not me, guv! Honest (2007)I certainly wouldn't risk being a teacher in the USA. Julie Amero, a substitute teacher at Kelly Middle School, has been convicted on four counts of "risk of injury to a minor" and is scheduled to be sentenced on 2 March in Norwich Superior Court. She faces up to 40 years in prison! What did she do to earn such a sentence? She switched on her classroom PC, which displayed an endless loop of pornography, to the delight of her 7th-grade pupils! This is exactly the sort of prank a student would play on a teacher. But a jury of 12 computer-illiterates found her guilty of showing porn to minors! Would the student who played this prank please raise his hand before Teach goes down for 40 years? What a country! Land of Injustice.
