    Schoolteacher Suspended for Facebook Gun Photo

    Thursday, February 05, 2009


    BEAVER DAM, Wis. — A Beaver Dam Middle School teacher is on administrative leave after school officials discovered a photo of her with a gun on Facebook.
    In the photo, Betsy Ramsdale was training a rifle at the camera.
    In an e-mail to WKOW-TV in Madison, Ramsdale said she removed the photo immediately and that she is not "interested in any controversy."
    Schools superintendent Donald Childs says a concerned staff member brought the photo to the district's attention.
    Childs says the use of the photo "appears to be poor judgment" and is unaware of any sinister intent.
    Ramsdale's biography on the district Web site states she is in her first year at the school. Department of Public Instruction records show Ramsdale has been licensed to teach since 1996.


    just....wow.

    Pretty soon a "gun owner" may be considered a protected class.

    What if her students saw the photo? Think of the irreversible damage.

    The left has been working very, very hard to demonize guns and gun owners for decades. They are slowly succeeding. :sad2:

    I wonder if the same would happen if, in the pic, she was pointing it down a range, with the camera behind her.

    Only a matter of time until we're like England and have SWAT teams kicking in peoples doors cause they had a pic of themselves with a gun on the net.

    I dumped my Facebook account when I started looking for a job in college. Never made a Myspace account. All to prevent crap like this.

    Schools can be pretty ridiculous when it comes to stuff like this. If I was a teacher, then I would probably stay away from myspace, facebook, etc.

    The best part about this is Beaver Dam is country as fuck. It's in the middle of fucking nowhere; everyone around there is a farmer or hillbilly :rofl:

    There are guns EVERYWHERE out there.

    what the fuck kind of gun is that?

    sadly if it were a wood "hunting rifle" or o/o shotgun, I doubt there would be any problem.
