This will be a segment where I ask the aforementioned question, serious? I will talk about one or two or three topics per installment.
BARRINGTON HIGH SCHOOL APOLOGIZES FOR SKIT PORTRAYING SLAVE AUCTION
Barrington High School has issued an apology after students at a convention on Greek and Roman culture staged a skit about a slave auction.
The students were attending the Illinois Junior Classical League Convention at the Westin Hotel in Itasca. A parent took a cellphone video of the skit, in which a student portrayed a slave in chains being sold.
"The Barrington School District offers sincere apologies to those offended by a skit our high school Latin students conducted at the Illinois Junior Classical Convention in Itasca this weekend," the school said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.
Morgan Delack, spokeswoman for Barrington School District 220, said the 45-second skit was "meant to be an introduction of students depicting slavery in ancient Rome."
"Clearly, it did not come off as humorous, but there was no maliciousness or cultural insensitivity intended," Delack said. "I think the group of students understood that some people were offended."Delack said the Latin teacher who was in charge of the students, Chris Condrad, publicly apologized at the convention before it was over.
She said Condrad did not review the skit before his students performed it.Delack said she didn't think Condrad nor his students would be disciplined. Condrad did have a conversation about the incident with Principal Steve McWilliams, Delack said.
Condrad did not return a call or email seeking comment. Delack said the teacher would not be commenting on the matter.
"This is a teachable moment and now these students can reflect back on their actions and learn from it," Delack said
I can't even, I do not know what, they, Serious?
And in Chicago, ain't you suppose to be a racial epicenter of American Society. Fuck you doing?
Let me pose a question, when has reenacting anything slave related been a positive experience?
Cool so we got that out of the way. Yes I know it was greek and roman slavery. I am pretty sure there are enough accounts, enactments, and modern examples of slavery. We do not need to stage a reenactment of slavery to make our public school students understand how it works.
What is this shit about the teacher will get no discipline. That is some bull shit. So we are just gonna not have consequences for terrible ideas now? Are we just going to let stupid people teach in high schools? I guess that has been happening since the dawn of time, and there is no changing patterns, nope not here. Just ask Saber Tooth Tigers in south pole.
They know.... Oh yea... They know.
WEST BOCA MAN ACCUSED OF FAKING DISAPPEARANCE AT SEA INDICTED BY
Nearly a year after authorities say West Boca banker Richard Ohrn faked getting lost at sea, he now faces federal charges in the suspected hoax.
Ohrn on March 31, 2015, set a rented, blood-stained fishing boat adrift in the Atlantic Ocean, used an inflatable boat to motor back to shore and then fled to Georgia in a pickup truck, according to a Palm Beach County sheriff's report.
That triggered more than two days of rescuers searching by air and sea over 3,100 square miles for someone who had actually slipped away to a rented house in Albany, Ga. — all to try to escape mounting costs from a lawsuit, according to the report.
Now Ohrn, 45, faces a felony charge of communicating false distress to the U.S. Coast Guard, according to a grand jury indictment filed Thursday.
Ohrn knowingly caused "a false distress message" that prompted the Coast Guard "to attempt to save lives and property when no help was needed," according to the indictment.
The Coast Guard last year estimated that it cost nearly $400,000 for the aircraft expenses alone in the search for Ohrn.
Serious? How much were them fee's? How much shit were you dodging? Because if we are talking about anything south of $5,000 then the Serious? stands and it stands hard.
Pretty fucking dumb man. You Serious? You fake your own death at sea, because randomly you decided to take out a fishing vessel. Who in the fuck just randomly go out to sea by themselves? Serious? We still goin, Then you smear blood all over the boat, what happened? You fight some giant moby dick fish and he killed you on the boat then swam off with yo body? Serious? No, no, no, wait what had happened was some gang of bass came from another boat commandeered yo boat. You were holding the money for your legal fees contemplating life on the great expanse. These large mouth bass came in beat you to death, stole your money, put you in a fishing net, said "That's for Karl Bitch", threw you in the water, and drove off. That was definitely it.
Now I am still going, soooo after you left the boat on smaller boat, you went to a parked car in Georgia. Georgia, Serious? What you doing? Where are you going? Mexico is the opposite way. What do you think that just because you got to that point that your some sort of criminal mastermind and you will just drive off into the emptiness of Georgia and re-solidify a new identity as Tim Tiggons.
So they basically started to figure out it was a hoax after a couple of days, because the mastermind did not cover any, any of his tracks. I do not even wanna say it anymore this guy is just horrible. Come on man, you worked for a bank you should have been able to put up a way better disappearance than that. He turned himself in almost two weeks later.
