Once again that great son of Manitoba, radio/tv host & newspaper columnist Mr. Charles Adler has it right on the money. Chuck stated earlier this week in his Sun newspaper column that the Montreal high school teacher who showed the video of Luka Magnotta killing, sexually abusing, & chopping up of the body of Chinese student Jun lin in his class should be fired. I for one vociferously agree & the teacher was in the end shi*canned.
If the teacher had sent home notes asking parents if their child(ren) in his class could watch the video to show how awful it is, then I might not have a problem with it being shown in the context of being a historically speaking awful modern day crime. Tag on getting his school principal's & his school division's trustees being asked II give permission & he might have been okay in holding down his job. The teacher was fired & thats great b/c why would anyone glorify murder II high school students who are of course rather impressionable? Who knows, some of the students might see the video & start thinking thast maiming/killing other humans is no big deal, like a picnic in the park. Its just beyond sick!
Excellent Work Chuck Adler,
