Do u think a gun was put to her head to have her admit guilt? I don't think so!

How do you know there wasn't? It's not like the first time it's happened in America. Anyway, let's see how you feel when someone accuses you of similar.

@Dublin Mom - I am not sure why you keep saying that the Livermore School District was hiding this whole thing in hopes to protect the teacher. I am not sure where you have received any of this information. In every article that has been posted about this event and my understanding the police reports. Is that the victim told a teach on TUESDAY and before school started on WEDNESDAY she was arrested. So in LESS that 24hrs, the victim reported it and she was arrested. So I'm confused where you are getting the information. @ MagnusT - All though you are VERY outspoken about everything, you are very correct in "due process", not sure why anyone else is against the "Innocent until proven guilty" These are laws that this county is based on..... How bad when any of you. who are so quick to have her hung, feel that if she was put to death and then it comes out that the victim lied about the whole thing to get attention for some reason, how bad would you feel?? What if it was your wife or husband who was getting accused and arrested???? Would you be saying crucify them??? Before both sides were able to present their case?? I think not. If she is guilty, that means the defense had enough EVIDENCE to prove her guilty. If she is found innocent then they did not have the EVIDENCE. If she is innocent, her life and the life of her family if ruined, forever, you don't just simply bounce back from something like this.

Thank you, Michelle. Now imagine the frustration you would feel if 3 people reply by saying you're a threat to children, you're probably a molester yourself, etc., just for defending a person on the basis of the Law and our system of justice. I'm outspoken because I believe in hammering lessons home until the students get the message. So far my words are falling mostly on deaf ears but I'm glad that yours are open and your mind is alert. You are a rarity around here.
