Teacher Suspended for Warning of Possible Threat

Dana Mathewson

What ever happened to "If you see something, say something?" Here, a teacher who dares to suggest that his school might be vulnerable to being "shot up" is suspended for voicing his concern.

From the New York Post:

" A high school teacher in New Jersey said he was suspended last week for bringing up his concerns about his school’s safety in light of the Florida massacre. Philly.com reported that Timothy Locke, 59, was placed on leave for talking about the Parkland shooting and then floating the possibility that a similar event could happen at Cherry Hill High School East, which is in Cherry Hill, N.J. "He said the chances of East being shot up were high,” one 17-year-old student told the newspaper. The student said that she noticed another student upset and the two went to the principal’s office. A spokeswoman from the school board told Philly.com that she could not discuss the personal matter. Locke is reportedly well-liked by students at the school and some protested his suspension on Monday. Locke told the paper that he was called into the principal’s office and his bag was searched. He told the paper that he has to undergo a psychiatric exam."
