A maths teacher in Alabama has been suspended and was investigated by the Secret Service for teaching his pupils geometry using the example of how to assassinate President Obama. As stupid as the teacher clearly is for following through with this example, it seems harsh that he stands a good chance of losing his job. I imagine that this will polarise the US press. The left-wing will rant that it is a ‘disgrace’ that this kind of ‘vicious’ anti-Obama rhetoric is apparent in Alabama where as the right-wing will rant that it’s clearly a ‘silly joke’.
