Dad hits Perry Hall teacher with baseball bat after 'inappropriate' texts surface with teen daughter
WMAR ^ | 6/5/2014

Posted on 06/06/2014 3:25:21 AM PDT by markomalley

The father of a Perry Hall High School student struck a teacher with a baseball bat after police were made aware of a series of texts between the teacher, a 42-year-old man, and a 15-year-old student, Baltimore County police said.

Police said an officer of the White Marsh Precinct read over dozens of texts that “described an emotional relationship that seemed inappropriate for a teacher and student,” according to a release from the Baltimore County Police Department. The girl's mother alerted police to the texts at about 3 a.m. at the precinct.

Police determined however that no crime had been committed. The case was referred to the Crimes Against Children Unit for further investigation, police said.

"There's nothing we've seen in the contents that's criminal," Baltimore County police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said of the text messages.

Thursday morning, the teacher went to the girl’s home in the 4600 block of Vicky Road to speak with the girl’s father. The teacher did so without permission, police said.

"The girl's father told the teacher to leave, but the teacher refused,” according to a police news release. “The girl's father then struck the teacher with a baseball bat.

“The officer found that the teacher sustained minor injuries and advised him of the process for swearing out a complaint of second-degree assault (a misdemeanor),” the release continued. “The teacher said he did not wish to pursue charges.”

So far, no charges have been filed. Police are not releasing the names of the girl, her parents or the teacher.

The father could file trespassing charges against the teacher, who has been barred from returning to the home. The teacher could file assault charges against the father, police said.

I just heard this on the local news. Of course they left out the part of the texts. The teacher decided not to press charges.

Oh they made it seem like the Dad just went and hit the teacher (practically for nothing).

Back in the days when there were sensible standards, teachers were told not to have any personal contact with students outside of school. Another nice guideline was never be alone with a student for tutoring etc even in school. The best way to avoid these kinds of accusations is to have no online or other private contact with students.

Maryland is where an 18 yo student (HS senior) was sexually assaulting a 14yo freshman girl in the hallway and was not arrested, or expelled but transferred to another school at taxpayers expense.
The “school” determined that the 14 year old girl “consented” so it was okay so I doubt anything will happen to this predator masquerading as a teacher.

and people wonder why 49% of Marylanders want to leave the state.

One can traverse a narrow barrier of moral wrong, but still not break the law. I have no sympathy for a teacher that would send questionable texts, then show up at the girl’s front door.

Seriously, did the teacher really expect a warm welcome?

Dozens of texts. Dozens. 42 years old vs. 15. The man is a sexual predator. Baseball bat, pickup truck, tarp and a dark lonely road in the middle of nowhere.

We can't immediately blame the father for what seems like a rash decision.

For all we know, the baseball bat was simply the best weapon he had available at the time.

Back in the days when there were sensible standards,
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Back a few years the USN had an ADM who apparently ‘slipped through the cracks’ or was considered ‘Uppity (If you know, you know)’ and an ‘Employee’ of his had lost her husband or family in an accident and he was seen - IN A PUBLIC VENUE - of putting his arm around her and comforting her.

The ADM got REPRIMANDED - read fired - for his ‘Act of Compassion’ or, I think the term at the time was ‘Random Act of Kindness’.

Granted he was not adhering by the ‘rules’ but at the time a lot more people were just getting reassigned etc for actions ‘behind closed doors’ etc...

If they wanna get you, be careful because they will.

My how times have ‘changed’ ... This slug doesn’t get charged, reprimanded and I suppose the Union will back him enough so where he may get a ‘promotion’ to a desk job rather than can him and prosecute him.

Imagine if Monica’s dad, Dr. Bernard Lewinsky, had held a presser in front of the WH, denouncing Clinton for abusing his daughter. Instead, the putz gave Clinton a pass. No wonder Monica’s an impressionable whack job with daddy issues..

I find this amazing. If I'm kind enough to tell the pedophile (three times my daughter's age!) to leave my property, rather than going the shovel and shut up route, I expect the pervert to leave immediately. Does this predator really not understand that his actions are evil, and that it is a parent's job to protect children from evil, or is the child molester that secure in his knowledge that Maryland's unconstitutional gun laws will protect him?

When I was a kid, I was friendly with all the older folks on my block. I would stop by (often alone and unsupervised) to check out books, cars, rocks, etc and learned so much. Nobody thought anything of it.

Today we are so far gone as a society that we automatically assume predation when older people interact with children. Any decent adults are too terrified of being accused so only predators remain.

I think this increases the divide between generations and is making young people even stupider.

Inappropriate but not criminal.. Ok...Wonder what the jist of the texts were about then.

Teacher shows up, uninvited, at the child's house, to "talk".

Refuses to leave.

Teacher is lucky he wasn't beaten to a pulp.

In other Teacher/Student liason news, we have this from Utah.

Utah high school teacher, 34, accused of having sex with 16-year-old student claims SHE is the victim after teen boy 'wore down her defenses'

I would delay judgement until the texts come out.

What if the teachers responses were “leave me alone”, or “get help”, or “I am taking this to your parents?”

I can think of no reason for the teacher to go to the house.

Satan and the left have replaced The State for The Family,
and have done so under the false guise of “civility”.

I assert that it is MORE civil for a father to protect his daughter like this than to turn the matter over to the State.

We have seen that the State, infested with leftists, will get it morally WRONG every time. Every time.

If someone is pestering you you block them or, if your phone does not allow that, ignore them.

In any event I’m sure the phone company still has the technology to block certain numbers from reaching your phone.

Baseball bats are exactly the tool to be deployed in these and many cases.

They send a strong message.
They don’t get the gun grabbers all spun up.

Other areas for deployment:
EPA
IRS
DHS
etc...

I know that. But I guess my point is there is a lot more to this story.

Do you all think this guy was going to the house to propose or sweep this girl off her feet?

Going to her house was a huge mistake. If he was involved with her, he should be hung. But we need some critical thinking around here. There are too many folks jumping to conclusions.

We had a young male teacher in my high school who tendered his resignation after being beaten in his own driveway the night before. He could not identify his attackers.

While I'm proud of the father for doing this, I don't know that a medal would be in order. He was just doing his job as a dad. And he did it right! What makes this act exceptional is that there was actually a dad around and that he was willing to step up and do his job.

That being said, I'd sure like to buy the man a beer.

Today we are so far gone as a society that we automatically assume predation when older people interact with children.

But back in the day, there were also hundreds of written and unwritten rules of etiquette that kept people from committing social errors. Both men and women were warned against "giving an appearance of impropriety" by interacting with a member of the opposite sex in various contexts. Certainly this teacher should have known he was way over the line, unless the 42 texts were just brief, innocuous sentences about a school assignment. But why would they have been, when the mother, apparently having discovered them, called the police at 3 AM?

When I lived in a city, the locals used to use "d'aluminum" to keep the drug dealers out of the neighborhood. It's hard to stand around luring children if your kneecaps are broken.
