Full story: Berkshire Eagle

A teacher at a failing school where he and all his colleagues are being fired hung an effigy of President Barack Obama in his classroom, apparently in reaction to Obama's support of extreme measures to ensure accountability in schools.

It's called hate crime, not freedom of speech. You're free to be ignorant, but please don't spread your seed. Thanks.
Where and when do "hate" crimes apply, and who decides, as opposed to just crimes?

Was it one of those dolls that you pull the string and it lies to you? Or the one that recites the names of all 57 states? That is one stupid teacher. And the union let that person teach? Amazing. How many more numb-sculls are out their exposing themselves to our children? No wonder kids are so dumb today. They have to finish high school to know what I had learned by 8th grade. It's remarkable. Now let me turn on the spelling checker so some teacher doesn't tear me a new one. I know you are checking.
Two easy ones we don't have 57 states and the out their should be out there.

The teacher Im sure is frustrated...but really should have used better judgement. Obama and his flunkies are idiots though...all these extreme measures are going to do is incite more teachers to cheat on their state standardized tests to avoid being fired! Im all for accountability in the classroom...but firing every teacher in the school...total idiocy! And for B. Hussein Obama to support this is political suicide. Lets see him win a 2nd term with teacher's union support.

It's state by state. Here's info. for Rhode Island. You have to think about the setting. There are special laws governing drug activity around schools in many states. This is because the environment is one where minors are prevalent and therefore impacted.

Why is ok for protesters to have hung W on ropes etc. Yet not ok for the same freedom of speech in this case?

In response to my claims of racism, many racist remarks were made. If you don't think hanging a black president isn't an act of racism then you do not know history. It was blatant.
