THE ABCS of being fired

Read all about it: News from Columbus Ohio..a substitute teacher is up on felonycharges for showing the horror movie THE ABCS OF DEATH to her class!

The COLUMBUS DISPATCH has the full story on Sheila Kearns..

kearns-sheilaThe defense attorney for Kearns argued that she had her back to the screen for the film and did not see the graphic sex or murder scenes.. Of course when you learn that she showed the film five times in one day, and knowingly tried fast forwarding it when a principal walked in (only to pause it on a breast scene) you have to wonder if she really had her back to the screen so much so that she didn’t know the type of film she was providing to the young adults…

The JURY in the case is going to be made to watch THE ABCS OF DEATH–anyone who has been aware of this film knows what the jury is going to see..

I have written about the ABCs before.. It’s not my type of horror flick to watch for fun..  I have some major problems with those who count it as entertainment, but it’s certainly their right to do so. Even more, since this is America, perhaps being fired may be the best result in this case.. even being kicked off the rosters in the entire state may be fine, too. But criminal charges?

Prison time?

All for a horror movie that, chances are, was already seen by half of the kids in the high school class rooms where it was being shown? I think that goes well beyond too far..

But even horror movie fans seem divided on whether her punishment equals her crime..
