One jackass poisons bees:
Another jackass is fired for calling his students morons and being as inappropriate as any one man could be:
The board voted unanimously, 5-0, to accept the recommendation of an Ohio Department of Education referee who held 13 days of hearings on the issue between December and May.
That recommendation was received by the board and Togliatti’s lawyer Monday. The grounds for termination cited were “unprofessional and disrespectful conduct toward students ” and “highly inappropriate conduct towards administrators and other teachers.”
The next jackass killed himself at trial rather than pay for his crimes:
Authorities had suspected that arson defendant Michael Marin committed suicide by ingesting poison after he collapsed in court June 28, moments after a jury found him guilty of burning down his Biltmore Estates mansion in 2009. That theory was bolstered this week when Maricopa County investigators discovered a canister of cyanide in Marin's car.Television video from Marin's court hearing appeared to show him put something in his mouth immediately after the verdict was read. Seven minutes later, he went into convulsions and fell to the floor. Paramedics were unable to revive him.
We covered that when it first happened, but finding a neatly labeled bottle of poison is one heck of an indicator. If toxicology reports throw any surprises I may update, but I'm going to call this case closed.
And last but certainly not least:
