I am getting disgusted of seeing someone post rubbish about Clark Justice. This person obviously does not know anything about the man. Why is this poster obsessed with this kind man? I applaud Mr. Justice for continuing to stay active after his retirement. My guess is that the poster is not half the man Clark Justice is and can never hope to be.

Knoxville doesn't need any Greene County drama. They will be little fish in a big pond.

SMH,
I don't know whether uknow32 knows Clark Justis or not. I do know Clark Justis. I know Clark Justis is incompetent. I know he was worthless as a county commissioner. I know he was worthless in the school system. He was worthless in the job they put him in as transportation supervisor and athletic director. He has been a leech on the school system for too long and needs to just stay in his hole and not show his face in Greene County again.

Then we must know two different Clark Justices. If you do not like him take it up with him. He is too good of a person to deserve this bashing.

Then we must know two different ones. He put himself in the light with being a public figure. He needs to stay retired from the school system and from the county commission.

No. Just because someone chooses to serve the public does not mean they deserve bashing by someone who is too much of a coward to take it up with them in person. It is becoming more and more common for people who are bashed on this site to take it up in the courts. From what I have seen of some of the posts on this site much of this could be argued as a form of bullying. The laws are changing and Topix is now cooperating with law enforcement. He may have the opportunity to face his accuser before long.

He has put himself out there as a public official. Many of the laws don't cover that. It is a First Amendment issue.

He needs to stay retired from any more public works, period.

So what you are saying is that there is a different set of laws for school teachers than the rest of the public? Where are you getting your legal advice? The First Amendment does not give you or anyone else the right to defame someone's character.

The First Amendment does not give you the right to bully or harass anyone, including teachers. Please note the following:

One state began stepping up to protect teachers and school staff from bullying.
Earlier this month, North Carolina passed legislation that makes posting “intimidating or tormenting statements” about teachers online a misdemeanor. A student could be fined up to $1,000 for posting such a statement on Twitter or Facebook. The move came after the state’s Classroom Teachers Association lobbied lawmakers for some protection.
“It remains to be seen whether legislation will prevent any bullying,” says Sweet.“It would, at least, provide some recourse for bullying victims.”

First off, this is Tennesee, not NC.

Second, he was a public official, not just a teacher. He would have to prove statements are false. The statements above are opinion, and cannot be proven false.

Third, he was a public official. He has to go further and not only prove the things are false, but that they were said with actual malice, which includes that there is knowledge before hand that the statements are false.

In New York Times v Sullivan, the Supreme Court ruled that saying defamatory things about a public figure (which Clark Justis is) is a First Amendment issue.

NOW, back to the issue. He was worthless as a county commissioner and worthless as a bus supervisor/athletic director.

"The harassment statute is one of only about 20 criminal provisions in Tennessee law with 'intention' as a threshold -- you have to intend the conduct and intend the specific result," Tigue said Friday. In this case, it's the "malicious intent to frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" to a specific person.

Malicious intent to intimidate or cause emotional distress? I do not think that would be too difficult to prove, based on the number of posts made against this gentleman. Surely you must realize the difference in making comments about a public official that you disagree with and relentlessly posting anonymous and derogatory statements in a public forum.

You might want to read the School Board Policy Manual for the school system you are discussing.
