If I were a teacher in Loudon County, I think I'd be drinking too. Couldn't imagine trying to educate some of those brats!

And you are from where? I happen to have 2 children who have attended Loudon County Schools. One who is already out and has a very good job and one who will be getting out and going to college and I would say they are far from being brats! Maybe you should rethink what you are saying before you put it down in words,or were you maybe refering to your own children if you happen to have found someone who would actually help you in that process!!

Second DUI offense? No doubt he should be fired. I can maybe understand not firing him the first time but the second? Adios!

I also have children who went through Loudon and they are great kids and great students. Just because someone else has brats they assume everyone does!! Just ignore stupidity comments!!

This is an outrage ! His arrest is totally unrelated to the good work he does with those kids. Plus he's innocent until proven guilty. We all know that the judges reduce most DUI's to reckless driving so this is just wrong.
It was self defence!

This is not outrage! He should be fired from teaching. DUI is wrong and it does not set a good example for kids. He is supposed to be a role model.

I'm impressed that Loudon County cares enough about it's students to keep them away from a drunk. Especially one who isn't smart enough to call a cab or a friend.

Ye without sin cast the first stone. How many of us has driven after a few beers? Where does it say it was his 2nd offense? I have known Bo all my life and he is a great person and loves kids. People make bad judgement calls, this is one.

I notice he stayed employed right up to the point this story was first published. Now with an informed public the system jerks into damage control mode.

I haven't. It frankly makes me sick to think you see it as no big deal! People lose lives due to someone being selfish, and drinking to much and getting behind the wheel. There should not be charges pressed for DUI it should be attempted murder, period.

That was a great post by that person. That entire county is riff raff.
That entire county? Just like a Farragut Parent to pass judgement on an entire community of people. How could I be so naive to think that it could vary from household to household... in Loudon County as well as beloved Farragut.
