I hate to do it, but I must disagree with my fellow bloggers and side with the Daily News in the case of Eric Chasanoff, AKA Chaz of Chaz's School Daze, and call for this unrepentant teacher's ouster. Despite the fact that he was cleared to return to the classroom after 4 1/2 years in the rubber room by an independent arbitrator, we simply can't take the chance that he will stop his outrageous behavior, which consists of telling a high school girl that he "could kiss her" for doing well on a test because he was proud of her. If we allow a poor choice of words to stop us from firing a teacher, what will be next?
Actually, I'll tell you what will be next. I know of an outrageous case going on right now. In a case of sexual deviancy that has gotten little attention so far, a sicko has been found to have entered a salacious relationship with a minor. It's hard to believe, but this individual has posted pictures of this girl on a public web site. The pictures include highly suggestive shots of this young lady posing in a bikini and bunny ears, just in time for Easter, I suppose. And there's more. This pervert has also apparently posted pics of this young victim in a Santa bikini and in a white dress reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe's iconic Seven Year Itch photo, with her skirt blown upwards and her underwear clearly visible. In one of the more disgusting photos, this underage girl is shown lying on the floor in shorts and a bra, the strap of which is pulled dangerously low on her bosom.
To make matters worse, this scoundrel has also posted some of this girl's suggestive tweets. For example, 'Come get down & dirty w/me while we floor flash together!' and 'OMG, I'm so ... wet."
So I think you see where I'm coming from. If we allow Chaz to get away with a poor word choice, it will embolden sickos like the one above, who will feel free to exploit even children in the most despicable manner without fear of punishment. We can never allow our children to be exploited in this manner, and I think any sane person would agree that a teacher who could post such explicit pictures and tweets as those above should be fired.
Of course, it wasn't actually a teacher who did such heinous things to a minor. It was the Daily News.
Yes, my friends, see for yourself, if you can stomach it. The Daily News, paragons of virtue that they are, went out of their way to post a slide show of 22 photos of Courtney Stodden, a 17 year old girl, including all the poses and tweets mentioned above. I found this because it was on linked on the FRONT PAGE of their website today, where thousands of other people will no doubt see it as well.
So, you see why Chaz has to be stopped, don't you? I call for his immediate firing--as soon as every single member of the NY Daily News who had anything to do with posting those pictures of a minor on their web site has been fired, as well.
