He admitted to it, so why would it be hearsay?

Well you have to admit that their race is more tightly bonded than ours. They show up in droves even if the person has been accused of something hanous. We only support each other at funerals.

He confessed... he is a child molester. He needs to be imprisoned and never allowed to be near children ever again!

I don't know exactly what happened, and I'm not saying it's OK, but there's a big difference between momentarily putting your hand on someone's thigh and molesting a child. Let's not exaggerate here.

If it's true, then he should be fired, and that should be the end of it.

A teacher putting their hands on a student is wrong. He only apologized and started texting people about it when he realized he was in deep sht.. He gambled that the 16 year old was a slut, like so many of the students who turned out at the rally apparently think she is. He rolled the dice and lost. Time to pay up

Our "Safe Schools Czar" can admit he gave advice to a 15 yeard old male student to wear a condom when having sex with a man in a bus station? Just seems a huge difference in public response.
Kids know they can get rid of any teacher whenever they want. A simple accusation will ruin a persons life.
I admit I know as little about this case as most of you, but I can see the police talking to this man and the conversation going like this:
Police: She said you touched her and made her uncomfortable?
Teacher: I had no intentions of ever making her uncomfortable.
Police: But, she said you touched her and made her uncomfortable?
Teacher: The only thing that ever happened was I touched her thigh and appologized right away.
Police: Here are the cuffs, you admitted it.
Teacher: Wait it was an innocent touch while helping the student. There was nothing sexual, it was an accident and I said I was sorry.
Police: Too late. Your life is ruined.

but ask any of these people rallying behind him if they would let him watch their kids and you would not get any takers. go figure.

Wow an inadvertent touch to the thigh!
LOCK HIM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEYS! RUN FOR THE HILLS! I don't even know this guy and I can see what an absurd charge this is! You MUST be kidding me. Molestation?? REALLY?

It annoys me to no end when someone like keith says, "A surgical castration will solve all the problems with this man." If he did what he admitted to doing, he touched a girl on the thigh - would you remove his hands?
There is more to sexual misconduct than full penetration - a castrati can still physically and emotionally abuse without the use of his penis. I don't know what Barrett is guilty or not guilty of, but corporal punishment will not solve the problem.

Unfortunately, this is too often the case. Is it any wonder kids act the way they do? They know their potential to create huge problems for someone they don't like.

I will say this:(I hit enter too soon) I don't know if this young lady is telling the truth or not but if this was a one time thing, an accidential touching that he apologized for right away, then charging him with molestation is going too far.

If he did this on a regular basis and made her uncomfortable in other ways over time, then throw the book at him.

The guy obviously was not getting what he needed somewhere ( Home) so he took a shot ( 2 times ) with this girl. Then he admits to it. These followers are confusing a nice guy with bad choices. He deserves a fair trial and for him he has admitted his apparent wrong doing to not only the police but peers. He needs to man up tell his family and friends the truth and end this little saga. He is no educator if he continues to go down his path of lies, he admitted to it people. I dont think the police had the phone book hitting him in the head for the confession. You people live in the fairy tale world of BS.

He should be boiled alive, just until he is on the edge of death. Then, immersed in a tub of alcohol.
