The Terrorists Win
Targeted teacher of color Carolyn Gardner -- the victim of numerous anonymous racial incidents since last October -- will not return to teach in the Amherst Regional Public School system for the rest of the school year Principal Mark Jackson announced to the entire High School student body over the public address system on Friday.
The last straw appears to have been the incident on Wednesday, when yet another anonymous note was discovered in the library with a threat about bringing a weapon into school, and the perp signed the note "Carolyn Gardner." Amherst police determined the threat not to be "credible."
Since the anonymous notes and graffiti have been discovered in rest rooms of both genders it would appear there are multiple offenders, possibly copy cats simply wishing to get a day off from school -- especially now that the weather is nice.
I'm told students reaction was not one of anger or even excitement, but more of a somber "disappointment and shame." Because the school system -- and the entire town -- had lost.
To a Cowardly Anon Nitwit, otherwise known as a Troll.
Only makes you wonder, who's next?
