Teacher 'used Obama killing as geometry'

AN Alabama geometry teacher was investigated by the Secret Service after using a hypothetical assassination attempt on President Barack Obama to teach students about angles.

The teacher was questioned by the Secret Service after someone alerted authorities to the lesson on parallel lines and angles, in which he demonstrated where to stand to shoot the president.

He was not taken into custody or charged, the Birmingham News reported today.

"We did not find a credible threat," the paper quoted Roy Sexton, special agent in charge of Birmingham's Secret Service office, as saying. "As far as the Secret Service is concerned, we looked into it, we talked to the gentleman and we have closed our investigation."

School district superintendent Phil Hammonds called the assassination example “extremely poor judgment”, but said the teacher remains on staff at Corner High School. There are no plans for his dismissal.

So stupid. A teacher should know its illegal to even talk about assassinating the president. I dont think he should be fired but what an idiot.

Threaten, yes; talk about, no.

He's clearly a door knob, but the first amendment allows latitude for idiocy.
