Police: Eastport South Manor Teacher Charged With Fourth DWI

It doesn't matter what opinions any of you have ultimately it is up to the judge and the school district. What he has is a disease... one that he will hopefully put to rest at this point a day at a time. There are PLENTY of teachers out there who drink and drive, smoke pot, do worse drugs and keep their jobs they just don't get CAUGHT. He's lucky to have been caught because maybe he can stop torturing himself and his family with this disease. Did he drink and drive on the way to school??? Is he passing out drugs to students in social studies class??? There are other teachers doing worse things out there so let's leave the guy alone. He's tortured himself enough. As for those of you who are hating on him because he has a job and you don't... it's not his fault... blame it on the administration and the NYS education system. If the man had cancer would we say take his job from him? Because he does have a disease... just as deadly as cancer. OH AND ONE MORE THING... TEACHERS ARE HUMAN BEINGS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE... THEY CERTAINLY AREN'T PERFECT PEOPLE... AND THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER IS A GREAT EXAMPLE AND MENTOR... JUST STOP BY HAPPY HOUR ON A FRIDAY AFTER WORK AND LET ME KNOW HOW MANY ARE DRIVING HOME." Aug 7, 11 11:10 PM

Maybe you should do some research on alcoholism and rethink what you just said. It is not a moral choice - it is a disease just like cancer. As far as the student getting in the car scenario - did it happen??? No... so it's not a topic to be discussed. Do you think he wanted to do this to himself and his family and the community??? It is a perfect example of untreated alcoholism. I'm not saying he shouldn't have to face repercussions but I'm saying publicly bashing him on this board is ignorant and none of us are the judge nor the administration of the school district who will ultimately make the educated decision."

PEOPLE WHO JUDGE DONT MATTER... AND PEOPLE WHO MATTER DON'T JUDGE. HOPE ALL OF YOU NEVER COME ACROSS A LOVED ONE WHO SUFFERS FROM THIS DISEASE! " Aug 8, 11 8:55 PM
