This Week In Masturbating School Cops, Kids Forced To Pee In Trash, Kindergartners Crossing Highways Alone

As another school year draws to a close, there has been no lack of news about public school teachers – and public school cops – doing oddly terrible things.

At Miami Edison High School in Miami, Fla., for example, the campus cop submitted his resignation this week after local Fox affiliate WSVN received some footage showing him masturbating in his office.

The circumstances about how on earth the video came into existence are hazy, but the school police officer, 43-year-old Steven Rodgers, seems to have willingly allowed someone to film him as he did the deed right then inside Edison High. (Alarmingly, WSVN also decided America would want to see a censored version of the footage.)

During a certain segment in the video, an anonymous female hand reportedly appears. The details of exactly what that hand was doing have not been disclosed. Investigators did note that they believe the hand belongs to an adult woman.

“This is a very serious incident,” Miami-Dade Schools Police Chief Ian Moffett told WSVN. “The school district, along with the police department, uh, we do not condone this type of behavior.”

Meanwhile, a couple of Memphis-area teachers have been suspended without pay for some amazingly questionable decisions, according to local CBS affiliate WREG.

The Shelby County school board has brought formal charges against kindergarten teacher Karen Johnson because she decided to let a kindergarten boy walk over a mile home – apparently by himself.

The unidentified kid successfully crossed two major highways on his journey. He ended up having to shuffle home because he missed his usual bus.

“She should get in trouble,” aghast parent Kim Bateman told WREG. “You can’t do that. Anything could happen.”

The school board may fire Johnson after an upcoming tenure hearing.

Potential employment termination also looms for Gregory Matthews, a suspended English teacher at Northwest Prep Academy.

Matthews got booted from his teaching duties after he allegedly refused to allow a student to walk down the hall to use the restroom. Instead, for some reason, he told the student to pee in a trashcan in his classroom.

Naturally, as WREG notes, other students in the class videotaped the trash toilet brouhaha.

Masturbation by teachers and school cops is officially a thing across America this year. Kids facing obstacles in their quests to go to the bathroom and wandering across major roadways have already made news this year, too.
