Everett principal's video causes controversy

EVERETT, Mass.(WHDH)-- A local high school principal is facing questions about a video he made and showed to his students. Some are calling it disturbing.

Its no surprise you can already find it on YouTube; a violent video shot at Everett High School. The more surprising twist is that the starring role is played by the school's new principal.

The video depicts a terrified woman, burning swing sets, empty classrooms, a man roaming the hallways, and a menacing message.

The Naumannator is Erick Naumann. He made the video to introduce himself to the students at Everett High School where he's the new principal.

He started that job a couple weeks ago.

The violent portrayal is what's upsetting parents, said Fred Foresteire, Everett Schools Superintendent.

His dramatic introduction is working its way around the internet and it's raising some alarm.

Its inappropriate for a school setting especially given the atmosphere across the country as a result of the situations weve been having in schools, said Foresteire.

Fred Foresteire, the Superintendent of Everett Schools, calls his principal a respected man, a good leader and a visionary.

He didn't' see the video before the principal played it during morning announcements.

He made the wrong decision. It sends the wrong message. That is not what we do here, said Foresteire.

If a student made something like this for class, the superintendent says there would be consequences.

Naumann couldn't be reached for comment, but the school committee will decide what to make of his video message.

Fire both of them FFF sucks and Eric should be fired for this insensitive video.. Why wasn't this video viewed by the school committee before it was showed to students. What right does the school department have to show this type of cult video. I say can the both of them. FFF should of been gone along time ago and Nuzzo suck a big egg you should be on the list also to be canned. This city of Everett has really gone to shit since this mayor and all the idiots he has hired in city hall. Someone use your set of balls and get to the bottom of the great injustice to the students of Everett and the poor children who lost their lives in Newtown Conn.

I totally agree with you ! They should have the state come in and oversee the city for awhile ! I would love to see who would still be around then ???

Did any of you actually watch the video? It is hilarious. Mr. Naumann is a great teacher and the video was a rip off of the Terminator. This man is a leader and has done incredible work at the schools in Everett. He was my favorite teacher. I cannot believe people are making such a big deal about this. There is no one being hurt in the video, there are no weapons, no foul language. The video is actually kind of crappy but it is funny. Everett needs a principal like him. Stop being so sensitive and stop looking to pass blame. Here is a great person that does great work and everyone wants to tear him apart over a video? Mr. Naumann, you have my support. Best of luck weathering this storm. Sincerely, a Principles of Technology 1 and 2 student from 2001-2002.

Menacing? Seriously? This video is about as menacing as Sesame Street. It's a spoof of "Terminator" and is clearly a joke. It shows Mr. Naumann mixed in with footage obviously taken from the Terminator movies. There is no mention of Sandy Hook or any other school violence, and there is absolutely NO violence shown in this video. I suspect the crybabies who are trying to make a big deal out of this have not even watched it.

I think he was just trying to cover himself instead of telling people to lighten up over an obvious joke.

It was a funny harmless video. Remember, "Terminator" the theme of this video went on to be governor of California!!!

This was not only done in poor timing and judgement as a parent I don't see how someone running a school could ever be part of a video like this whether a spoof or joke it's not funny. Did he forgot over 20 kids lost there lives less than a month ago. Fred better be ready for tomorrow and action needs to be taken . This principle needs to be fired. I will do everything in my power to make that happen!

Any former students or players who have ever had the pleasure of having Mr . Nuamann ('Fugi) as their coach or teacher, please take a moment to sign this. Recent events have led to him being under attack from the media and public and they are calling for him to lose his position as new principal of Everett High. We need to stand up and send the message which we all already know, and that's that there is no better person to lead our schools and our children. This guy changed a lot of our lives, and he needs us now. Let's answer the call.

PLEASE SIGN THIS, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, PLEASE SHARE !!

So very true. In order to protect himself he tossed Mr naumann under a bus. Yeah he said some nice things about him but ultimately he took those words back by tossing him under. Typlical politics!

The video was hilarious and not at all offensive. Some people need to stop being so uptight. The rest of the world does not need to conform to your narrow views.

Nuzzo you need to shut up and stop posting that shit petition. Eric and the rump swab FFF need to go, FFF should of been gone a long time ago for stealing from the taxpayers of Everett and now our mayor is sucking a big egg in hot water. Our city goverenment are all thieves who are the worst in the city of Everett's elected AHOLES and the school dept that is given Millions of $ every year is allowed to show this to Everett students. I want to know why the lame idiots that again are elected school committee rump swabs also were not shown this first to see if it was appropiate to show at this time with all the shootings and shady people killing people in mass killings. You need to get a life if you still think you need to defend again an idiot who is on the city of Everett payroll.

Please all I hope many parents will protest what has happens and will get some satisfaction in this matter. I hope it will not be swept under the rug like all the crime that has been happening in Everett and we tax payers hear nothing or see nothing in the local papers.

All the people who are on here talking trash obviously have no idea what kind of person Mr. Nauman is. Do some research, talk to some kids, parents and educators. Your all so fast to throw someones career away because of a spoof on a movie. He is well respected and Everett's students will only benefit from having such a devoted, hard working man to lead their children. Unless you know the facts keep your mouths shut. I applaud the people of Everett who are standing up and supporting Mr. Nauman, hope to see you all doing the same at the next school committee meeting.

I didn't laugh or even smirk. Not everyone knows what a great guy he is, this video was done in extremely poor taste. That says a lot about this mans character.
