Well apart from Wednesday being my worst day of school something even more disturbing came about today. A former teacher of mine was just charged with child pornography. In grade 7 our music teacher left and he became our teacher. He was an odd ball, and it came as no surprise to me really. He would sit on girls and he would say stuff like "If you are cold I'll warm you up, but you may not like my methods." And much more. He also tought us once this year in January for a substitute and it is destirbing just to think of it. Our principal also new him when she was 13. Here is an article on it. I can't find the one with his picture on it but oh well. This is really disturbing for our school, what an idiotic creep! :eyeraise:

Teacher, 61, facing child-pornography charges

Peel Regional Police have charged a 61-year-old teacher from Mississauga with possessing child pornography.

Donald Curtis of East Park Court was a teacher with the Peel Board of Education for 23 years before his recent retirement. Since then, he taught occasionally in Halton. Mr. Curtis is eligible to teach at the high school and elementary levels. Police would not release the names of the schools where he has worked, Constable Heather Andrews said.

Constable George Douglas said that the Halton and Peel school boards had been notified of the charges and it is their decision whether to release the names of the schools. Both boards declined to do so yesterday.

Peel investigators received a tip from a U.S. law-enforcement agency that child-pornography videotapes had been ordered from the Philippines, Constable Douglas said.

Police obtained a warrant to search Mr. Curtis's home, where they seized his personal computer. The technical-crime unit found child pornography stored on the machine, police said.

"Computers are making it way easier to catch people" involved in child pornography, Constable Andrews said. "They leave a trace." After police have seized a computer, they attempt to track down the owner's contacts, then pass any information on to authorities around the world, she said.

During the past week, Toronto Police charged at least three men with possessing child pornography.

On March 25, Toronto Police said that Microsoft Canada would provide technical expertise in a police crackdown on child exploitation. A Microsoft team was assigned to work with the police sex-crimes unit to develop software that would target offenders and victims.

Mr. Curtis was arrested on Monday. He was charged with attempting to possess child pornography and possession of pornography.

Matt-Liell,

I had a similar experience. I was in band, played trombone through late grade school to junior high.

My last year in Junior High, we met with our would be music Instructor for High School. I had a bad feeling about him, he took the progam far too seriuosly, he would grade students on physical apperance, rather than musical taletn. I had a bad vibe, and choose not to persue band and longer after that. Several years after I graduated, I read the headlines, and a few students reported him. Apparently he would take his star pupils home with him, feed them alcohol and sexually abuse them, both boys and girls, but mostly boys. Once he was charged, he fled to Florida, where he was picked up and ulitmately convicted of his hanus crimes.

Since then, my parents no longer doubt my initial instict about people.

What I will never comprehend, is the abuse, and the justification for Teachers to do this.

This particular guy won several competitions, but I called it so soon......

What a terrible thing............

but I Do Feel your pain.

Thanks Groovy, ya I don't get it. Stupid gross idiots. :eyeraise: I have an instinct about people like you too. There was a rumour around school that he was well lets say odd for the purpose of younger people on the forum but now it takes a whole new level! He left to go to Europe with his family. I wonder what his wife and kids are like.

But just thinking of him near me makes me :barf:

at my school one of our teachers is in court for sexual exploitation.

For any sexual relation to be illegal one of the person involved needs to be younger than 16. The girl was 17. The teacher about 25. It was my english teacher. It is exploitation because he was in a position of authority.

He was my favorite english teacher. He talked to you as a human being and we learned a lot in his classes.

Unfortunantly he was stupid enough to sleep with the 17 year old (back then) and i know her pretty well (sister of a friend of mine). And the rumours were true. And finally ended up being a law suit.

Its to bad really. it destroyed his career.



An other thing too. We caught one of my old high school math teachers stealing merchandise at the place i work.

I understand. :thumbsup: If something like that happened to my two boys...well, I don't know what I'd be capable of, frankly.

This all brings back memories of that big sweep the authorities did on paedophiles...was it 7000 they found, worldwide? And most of them were in a position where they could work with young people. The sickest case in the UK, IMHO, was the police officers who had been involved in searching for a child murdered by one of these nut-cases (and consoling the parents)...and they turned out to be suspected paedophiles themselves.

:swear:

Dammit, I get a sick, twisted feeling in my gut just talking about these people. On top of two recent news reports about two guys killing their sons just to get back at their wives over being separated...it makes me think our society is going down the ****-hole. :mad: :(

Sick and depraved behaviour seems to be a growing cancer worldwide.

Yeah, this stuff's pretty sick. I know of a principal across the river who got in trouble for having a sexual relationship with a student of his. The student was a young teenager who also happened to be a guy. :barf:

Oh, and Tyrion, brush up on your anatomy. :)

Speaking of disturbing teachers... did you hear about the one college prof who gave a speech in front of thousands of students and at one point said,

"I wish for a million more Mogadishus (sp) to happen to the Us."

Can you belive that?

why is everyone flaming tyrion for what he doesn't know? of course instead of just saying that he should research it first, i never thought a girls "pee-hole" was in their ass, but that's just me, everyguy here at one point didn't know jack$hit about girls up until their first year of sex ed (don't even try to lie, any of you) i always thought girls had 3 holes, there's an example of youth imagination going to work, he doesn't know so let him be, you were all like that and nobody ever yelled at you for it, but now you do know and you gotta make those who don't, worry about being yelled at? that's really sad, instead of criticizing him, help him out, he's young and does need to learn about women, but it's the same as how you used to be Z, can't deny it either

yeah, websites, cool :rolleyes:, i admit i've seen porn online, but i never learned anything from it, i've learned in class and the rest on my own, but maybe you're joking, who knows, but that was a clever remark tyrion "being like a golfball, going into a hole" haha, i'm gonna say that to people soon
