Point02GPA: All this cheating started when the democrats faked the moon landing.

No no, it was when Pope Pius the IX slit Custer's throat and then blamed native americans.

jayhawk88: Racketeering. You're going to charge a bunch of teachers with racketeering for falsifying test scores, but not a single Wall Street investment banker is ever charged with any crime for their role in the meltdown. An entire international bank full of money launderers gets off with a fine paid for by THE VERY PROFITS THEY MADE FROM MONEY LAUNDERING, but teachers trying to game No Child Left Behind now have a bail bondsman.

My Farking God.

Stealing from the people vs. stealing from the government. Of course the government is outraged, they crossed the line. Government coffers are sacred, they stole that wealth fair and square.

I would LOVE to think about the children as you request, but my psychiatrist says that If I keep doing that, they are going to come arrest me.

feckingmorons: Are you suggesting

Big to small, fecking, big to small.

You don't arrest the town drunk for having an open bottle when there's a murderer running around with a shotgun on main street.

You don't bother investigating millions of dollars in fraud until the farker who're committing BILLIONS in fraud are put in jail first.

That's how a rational person approaches problems. Legal training removes rationality and replaces is with what you can get away with using sophistry. It's Lawful Evil.

15 mug shots of corrupt educrats. 14 blacks, 1 asian. Just what I'd expect from the corrupt cesspool of black liberal racists that is Atlanta.

I think this headline cheated to get greenlighted. It's certainly not up to standards.

feckingmorons: Are you suggesting that those who are accused of breaking the law shouldn't be arrested simply because they didn't launder money?
Are you suggesting that those who are accused of breaking the law shouldn't be arrested simply because they are teachers and administrators?
Are you suggesting that those who are accused of breaking the law shouldn't be arrested simply because it was a conspiracy and they acted in concert so they are not individually responsible.

Their actions as alleged in the charging documents are illegal, unethical and done solely for personal gain - for bonuses, for promotions, for job security. They should be arrested and tried just like anyone else who is accused of committing a crime.

Nobody is suggesting any of those things, but it is nice to see you living up to your handle.

She cost the district hundreds of thousands in federal aid, all while collecting her massive bonus'.

She screwed a ton of kids. Sure, not on the usual teacher way, but still...

What would a bank robber who took that much cash get?
