Liz, if the allegations are true, how can that little boy not have been hurt?! He's going to be suffering consequences of it for his entire life and he may not be even aware of them consciously. I just hope that he has a good support system (family and a therapist). I would hope the same for her especially if she is guilty because ultimately, being truthful to her soul would set her free and bring true healing to all concerned - especially herself.

Simon, I never said she did not hurt that child, I said I don't know. OF COURSE if she did rape him he will be damaged for as long as he lives as would any child that is raped. Our children are the future and more are being damaged everyday by sick people working in our schools, just look at the statistics, its enough to make a parent want to homeschool their children.

I reread a lot of posts, shame on all of you who put down our police force. They risk their lives each day to protect all of us with little reward to show for it. The same for our DA and his staff trying to get the criminals off of our streets before they harm us. How dare anyone question their integrity when they do so much for so little!

I completely agree with everything you said Liz and also support your voice in defending the police. All the negative comments posted here about the police come from the friends and family of the woman charged so it carries no intellectual weight but a ton of hot, emotional air!

A reference to What Ms. Liz said:

How can you say "Our schools are pitiful..."
You mean the people who teach in the schools,right? That is a small part of the problem....
I think you should check out the KIDS..they're pitiful. It's disgusting how they behave. A teacher can't even take a disruptive student out of the class by the arm because student and parents will sue.
The students are an example of their extremely permissive and weak parents.
Just take a look at the administration...who is in charge in YOUR school?

aka the grand central parkway school, take it from me, its way overrated! As is this entire overpriced area of FH!
My sister and i both knew ms. enden, and she was never very nice to us, she never smiled when i looked at her. Still i'm shocked to read she is a rapist, that whole school will be rated differently now i'm sure.
Anyway, this case will probably drag around for a year unless she takes a plea bargain, i don't beleive she will do 7 years, maybe only 1 or 2.

Liz, I'm dumbfounded, tongue-tied, mind-boggled ... how did you compile this? These statistics are staggering and all in the month of May!! I must confess I'm shocked these teachers are women! I bet the sentences for them will be so leniant and unjust. None of the victims are as young as the boy in question in this article so I wonder if Enden is found guilty, will they do the right thing and punish her as a man in that position would be? Raping an 11 year-old for that period of time has grave consequences and deserves a severe sentence.

Does anyone know what happened in court today?

Simon, for more info, follow the link at the end, they compliled the list, I just copied it here.

CP, I do not know what happened in court, but my guess is that it was adjourned, and probably will be another upteen times while wasting court time and taxpayer money, because in the end, and assuming she is found guilty, it will come down to her choosing a plea bargain for reduced sentence, or just letting a judge sentence her for a longer jail stay.

What strikes me is how so many people on this post are mouthing off, on both sides of the issue, and really none of you know anything. Why not just sit back and wait for the evidence to be revealed and then evaluate it. You are all reacting from emotion, projection and anger. Your evaluations, under these conditions, have no value. None of you know enough to speak intelligently on this subject so why bother? Your opinions, ultimately, are pointless and have no bearing on the outcome here. Those of you who will be proven right will only be right by accident; you don't have enough data to reach a conclusion. Yet so many of you seem content with these notions you pass on freely. Maybe you should evaluate yourselves, try to discover why think your opinions on this should have any value at all.

I graduated from PS 196 in 1999 and I remember Ms. Enden pretty well. She was by far one of the nastiest school aides at the school, and while I never would've made the connection at the time, by now this doesn't surprise me in the least. I hope they throw the book at her.
so this guy is a liar too? he posted on earlier article, search enden for info.
it seems all those who are friends of family are in defense of her which is fine. but you all choose to ignore and deny and claim to be lies what anyone else has to say. police did investigation. they set up boy with wire only because she agreed to meet up with him again. why? what older woman meets up with a kid, and for what? then she admits to guilt. if not, she couldn't have been arrested. we don't live in complete anarchy. police don't arrest unless there is a good reason. time and trial will tell who's telling the truth. only enden and kid know the whole truth. at trial we will all find out.

I am currently going to Hornbeck High School where Maurna Thornton taught. I had her as a teacher for both of my junior high years. I never thought that she would do this. It is quite interesting to know these things, seeing as how the only way for "real" news to reach my ears is from other students. The staff at Hornbeck High School never tell the students what's really going on. I think that with this incident along with others happening across the U.S. should be dealt with more openly.

Liz is a Stupid C__T. It's impossible to rape a male of any age. Teenagers are adults these days, and some are the worst kind and poor excuses for human beings. Don't believe everything you read or hear. These poor little teenagers are the same ones that kill their parents and the innocent everyday people. Age does not make you automatically innocent of anything!
