And when we come back after the break, correspondant Max Vapid goes undercover to explain why those who called the 9-11 hijackers “heros” were simply exercising the right to free speech that made our great nation what it is today!

That’s a pretty bone headed statement to make, but worthy of criminal charges?.

He could>/i> face criminal charges? Then why did he have to post bail if charges are only pending? What could they possibly charge him with?

Shooting is more than a little extreme. Waterboarding on the other hand....

Being stupid is a crime? At least half the congress should be in jail then.

The thought police are listening. That’s the real reason lead is so expensive, you know. Aluminum foil doesn’t work nearly as well as lead so the government is artificially driving the prices up so they can continue to listen to our thoughts.

Breaking the First Amendment?

“Disorderly conduct” for posting a certain combination of ASCII characters to a website?!

I don’t understand how any of this was illegal. He made a really nasty and uncalled for comment, but there’s no overt threat. He didn’t even say “they should be shot”. This will be thrown out, although I doubt the guy will teach in that community again.

This is all wrong.

Thrown in jail for spouting an opinion, no matter how awful?

What is wrong with this country?

Ignorant comment on the teacher’s part, simply disgusting. However, it’s downright chilling that he was arrested for it. Government is simply out of control on all levels.

And to think of all the money we saved by shipping the KGB thugs here instead of having to travel to Moscow to see them.

OK, I'll admit to being confused... Did this teacher actually believe what he wrote, or was this just a typical example of leftist false flag agitprop gone horribly wrong (sarc) - you know, like when an African American professor sends racially offensive mail to herself or hangs a noose on her own door, and the truth actually manages to get out? Or when it's discovered that the hateful words written in feces on the victim's body are in mirror image lettering?

Don't you just hate when that happens?

He was arrested because he’s anti-union. Come on people get with the program here. LOL.

Just so there’s no misinterpretation -
“knew how to deal with the overpaid teacher union thugs... one shot at a time!”

They cannot legislate morality but they will legislate hate. You just have to make sure you hate who they want you to hate. Dont get caught hating the wrong person or thing.

Welcome to the brave new world.

This man is a former president of the Oak Creek teachers union.

He was trolling on a conservative political blog and trying to sound like his version of a right-wing whack job.

Here’s a link to the salary survey that got him so worked up.

Buss earned $67,595 as a teacher in Oak Creek.

Not necessarily unreasonable. It could be hotheadedness, or it could be construed as a threat. I haven't seen the thread mentioned in the article ... but I suspect this guy was more vocal than just this one quote.

The quote certainly had the distinctive stench that accompanies statements by misguided and confused leftists pretending to be conservatives. Kinda like what you see all the time in scripts written for NBC's "Law and Order" series, or what you hear spoken by Democrat and Communist 'union thugs' calling in to CSPAN on the "Republicans only" line...

Makes you wonder whether maybe this guy actually is one of those seminar callers, or perhaps even an NBC script writer...
