If Only His Dad Was Firing Blanks

Students at a vocational school who just wanted to learn how to weld were afraid for their lives when their teacher lined them up, pulled a gun from his waistband and started firing blanks at them. Police in Abingdon, Va., say Manuael Ernest Dillow got the attention of his 12 students and lined them up near a large garage door and then fired off between four and 10 rounds. Students said the sound was similar to that of an actual firearm and left them afraid for their lives. No students were injured, and police haven’t stated why the instructor pulled the stunt, but he’s facing 12 felony charges of brandishing a firearm, each of which can carry up to five years in jail.

    We need to know the race of the students. From the teachers name and picture we may assume he is a white Hispanic. A race card alert must be sent to Jackson and Big Al Sharpton.

    Okayyyy, this is quite strange, I’m sure the teachers union will come up with a good defense.

    I agree with serfer. This stinks. How many stations are running this story. Is it to help Obama take our guns?

    I’ve always wondered how a teacher is supposed to get kids’s attention these days in today’s uber-liberal environment. So this is what they teach in the teacher’s unions these days?
