Coogle has stepped down.

    The other chaperones were in the actual prom and circulating in and out of the main room. There were police there (3 to be exact) along with the front office staff and both assistant principals from the school on the floor outside the room where prom was held. However, when you have over 100 kids in one place it is not the easiest thing to keep your eye on every single one of them, I know I was there. The girl involved is 18 years old both now and at the time of prom. She had a dress with a slit nearly up to her hip bone. I didn't see the picture, nor the situation as it happened but I know the guy. While he may be a commedian at times he never stepped across the lines in this way in the past.

    Mel HUA ?, please explain. RRG, lots of kids have all of those things and watch mtv, and are by and large reeally good kids. This wasn't meant to be anything nearly as perverted as people here are trying to make it out..The teacher hasn't been charged with any crime, and the girls parents haven't said a word..Hot for teacher probably doesn't apply i bet it was a gag thats been totally misinterpretated. So before you decide to burn this guy at the stake get the facts straight. Hell my middle school gym coach used to do jock checks, we had to wear an atheletic supporter in class or he'd make us do something ridiculous like a hundred squat thrusts.. Was that sexual abuse to have to show the man you were wearing the proper clothing? I really think this has been totally blown out of proportion.

    This is yet another reason why I don't plan on having kids. If my teenage daughter did something like that I would whip her behind. Girls need to learn how to dress and stop acting like sluts. You can dress sexy without dressing slutty when you are a grown woman!! Teenage girls do not need to be dressing sexy or even thinking about that stuff. Kids are growing up way too fast. What ever happened to having a little mystery in life? There's no mystery when ladies have everything hanging out of their clothes. My husband and I fight constantly over the way I dress. He wants me to dress like these teenage girls do with very little left to the imagination and I do not want to dress that way nor feel comfortable dressing that way. I am 28 years old, not 18 and I prefer to dress accordingly. I do not like being stared at like I am some sort of circus freak.

    How old was she? If she's 18 or older, who cares?

    He should be sent to jail for life. Thats my opinion.

    I have to agree with most of what has been said. This is funny because the guy was so stupid that he obiviously didn't think he would be caught or punished... LMAO... What was going through his mind... Did some of those teenagers spike the punch and not tell him.... As for the students they are growing up way to fast these days and because of television viewing and video games and other electronic devices that their parents supply them with they have no values or morals any more. The world would have been better off if cable, mtv, video games, portable music devices had not been invented... It is a real shame and there is no way to defend what this teacher done but on the other hand I to ask hold is this girl and how does she present her self in public...???

    This man should receive the David Hasselhoff award, and be charged with felony stupid. The girl did absolutely nothing wrong. This is a garter, you folks make it sound like she was dancing around topless. Its not a very bright decision so maybe she could be charged with misdeamenor stupid. As for the teacher, we have no other reports of any type of this behaviour...Any idea how old the girl was?
