I saw this over the weekend on the daily mail site, then again on GOPUSA and was like WTF???

http://www.inquisitr.com/2853943/leigh-anne-arthur-petition-to-rehire-south-carolina-teacher-fired-for-stolen-nude-photo-goes-viral/

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2718255/Teacher-34-fired-students-stole-naked-selfies-posted-online.html

Now the Jezebel and inquisitor links are for a female teacher by the name of Leigh anne Arthur, while the Mail article is for a different female teacher, but who had the exact same thing done. Students taking HER phone, using THEIR phone to take pictures of the nude photos she had ON her phone, then pushing the out to social media..

What the heck over? The fact that in the LAA situation, the student(s) have NOT been punished (and according to one of the other reports i read the school board said they WOULDN'T punish any) but the teacher is done for even though SHE was not the one posting anything..

The principal or superintendent (can't remember which) flat out said it was the teacher's fault because she should not have taken nude photos of herself. That's just more victim blaming. It's never a perpetrator's fault. It's obviously her fault the kid stole her phone and had to actually go INTO her apps and find this picture.

It's just ridiculous we don't ever hold people accountable anymore. If I was that teacher I would file a civil suit against that kid or his parents. Something...the kid broke the law.

Agree that the teacher is the victim here but, why in this day and age, would anyone be stupid enough to send that stuff, or keep that stuff, electronically?

Because people (in general) are stupid?

Most people have an assumption (right or wrong) of privacy to their personal electronic communications or storage (whether it is emails or photos etc).

A couple of points on the article:

1. The teacher should not have been fired; she was basically slut-shamed because she had taken a nude pic for her husband. What I don't know is if the school has a policy about bringing pornography onto school grounds. If they do, then she did bring porn onto the property (electronically or not) and would have been afoul of the policy.

2. She should have gotten counseled / reprimanded for leaving her personal phone unlocked on her desk. that was just stupid, personal nude photos or not, that was a lapse in judgment.

3. The student should be reprimanded if not suspended (expelled I don't know) for basically taking her personal property (photos) and distributing them without her consent.

Exhibit A: " Eubanks said Arthur should get part of the blame because she had allowed students to use her phone before, saying that her phone was part of the equipment used in the class’ lessons......... “Knowing that, why did she put that photograph on that cell phone?”

Exhibit B: "She gave her password to the kids and they somehow got on it and when she found out she didn’t report it but had the kids send pictures back to her,' school board attorney Leamon Holliday said.

Now, the Students should definitely be disciplined. But, one of the Major Problems with our publik skoolz is that we have idiots like those two teaching the Chillrens!

Ah ... hadn't heard that. Yeah ... she is not overly smart.

Doesn't matter. She had it stored in her phone. It was her property that was stolen and illegally accessed. She took photos for her husband. It's no one else's business why.

Would I ever take nude photos for anyone? No. Just because nothing is really secure anymore. But that doesn't mean I would be "stupid" if I did and had it on personal property.

It's like saying if someone got robbed when a burglar broke through their locked doors and stole their shit "Well you should have had better security." No one says that though.

A white guy walks into a black neighborhood at midnight and gets killed, it's not his fault. He is the victim. However, he could have avoided the situation by not doing something stupid.

Cars are required to stop to allow pedestrians to cross the road. However, I'm not going to step out into the road without looking.

As my signature line has stated for a while now, both parties share responsibility. There is one victim, but both people are at fault.

Yes, it does mean you would be stupid if you did so, if you expect that the pictures won't get onto the internet. How many times does it have to happen before people smarten up?

That doesn't give someone the right to steal them off a phone. I saw the other statement where she either gave out her password or let them access her phone. That's stupid. That's like giving your students a key to your house or something.

I don't think she's stupid for taking nude photos for her husband. She's stupid for letting kids use her phone.

Anyone who stores or sends something electronically that they want to keep private is an idiot.

And as i have asked before, WHY did she need to have the kids allowed to access her phone 'for general class work', when all the students it seemed had one of their damn own phones?

I don't know ask the teacher. I even said that was freaking stupid of her to let them use her phone for class work. I wouldn't let my students use my personal phone for class work if I was a teacher.
