These are the Dayes of Our Lives

20 May

As you read through this account of the heavily redacted script of what’s become a most fascinating local soap opera, remember the title of this particular blog post:

It Isn’t Just a Myth, Power Turns People Into Assholes.

UPDATE: You can get a copy of the incredibly redacted report via WBEN.

    Crystal Barton should be fired. Coach Daye should also be fired. The report is a joke and is written in a style to minimize the seriousness of the problems at the school in an effort to protect the perpetrators. There should be no justification for redacting text in the report that relates to employees. They do not work for a private corporation, they work for the public. We pay their salaries and deserve to know everything contained in the report. The only exceptions should be to protect the privacy of the students involved. Simply redacting the names of the students would be sufficient. However, I would assign each student a pseudonym such as “student A”, etc., in order to make the report 100% coherent.

    Wasn’t there a story years ago that Barton overcharged her students for a trip to Europe so she could go free.

    What’s up with the volunteer coach too? she was going to the games even after getting fired (regardless of the merits). That struck me as though she were a bit too interested for comfort — like an obsessed fan or a stalker. Bad judgement

    Can you imagine being the principal in that school let alone trying to get an education? What a pain in the rear. They’re all freaks. And they’re going to pass judgement on you via a report card or annual review if you’re an employee. It had better come with an asterix

    Hillary will win in Kentucky with hard working blue collar Americans and Obama will win in Oregon with uppity, elitist, white guilt latte drinking liberal losers.

    Obama wants to tell you how high you can set the heat in your homes, how much you can eat and what kind of vehicle you can drive.

    More government regulation.

    Obama also thinks he can sit down with terrorist leaders over some nice tea and talk to these scumbags. How naive can he get?

    Yeah, the uppity liberals voted for CHANGE in 2006 and what did they get? NOTHING!

    What have these lazy good for nothing liberals done in Congress for two whole years? They make the laws. They’ve done nothing. WORSE, in act!

    You liberals yap about the ecomony which was fine except for the past year. Why? You liberals wanted food made into ethanol and that has raised the food costs of everything. You liberals don’t want to drill in ANWR and other areas in America, plus you won’t build new oil refineries.

    How about blaming the stupid, naive America public for getting into the mess we’re in when they bought big fat, gas guzzling SUV’s and elected politicians that won’t drill for oil and build anything while saving the poor polar bear which has INCREASED in numbers and who can still be killed by any other country at will.

    Kyoto was signed by Europe, but they have failed to meet each and every standard. You don’t hear much about those things or the INCREASING ice mass in the South Pole. Gee, why is that liberals?

    Like I also said, read “America Alone” and see how Europe is dying off and being taken over by Islam. See how Muslims have increased their population (4.6% live births) and white Euporean have only a 1.4% birth rate.

    Europes staggering social program is going to collape the entire EI within a decade and liberals here wan to follow suit.

    My God, are you idiots.

    It’s mind boggling that she can’t talk to the lawyer, and it’s amazing to listen to Mr. Stefan Mecha-lecha-high-loooooo stammer and studder.

    And Thanks James Z…jackass.

    @James Z – maybe try to do the anti-democrat rants in a thread where it’s remotely on-topic. KTHXBAI.

    Hey Sidley, a coach being a stalker? Have you ever coached a team, especially a highschool team? When you spend 3 hours a day teaching a group of players you want to encourage them and see them succeed. I don’t see what that volunteer coach did as stalking at all. I think she was showing support for the kids that she coached.

    Williams is the scumbag responsible for this entire mess. He has the sororty sisters on the board in his paw. They were creaming their designer suits when he made his annoucement.Should it be any surprise Edmonds wouldn’t find anything? How many dinners has he had at The Chophouse with Mr. William and Chris Jacobs.As I said before, a brother ain’t gonna through another brother under the bus. They should all be in jail.

    Illuzzi says Barton turned McKinley around … that ‘s good enough for me.

    I went to school with Chris Jacobs. Wasn’t impressed then, not impressed now ….

  9. Haterade May 22, 2008 at 7:32 pm #

    Am I mistaken … or is Jacobs married to Carl Paladino’s daughter ? James Williams’ biggest supporter (gee … go figure) and his most vocal critic. Must make for interesting dinner conversation.
