I guess that's what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I'm sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn't care.” The teacher goes on to add, “I'm almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin...GO!” The reaction to her opinion has been critical, with people taking to Twitter to express their disappointment, frustration, and worry over the teacher’s remarks.

She did kill her husband so she has to be punished. That makes sense. At the same time, I think she could have a mitigating factor because she had battered women syndrome.
