• Read The Ferguson Tweet That Landed This Texas Teacher In The Unemployment Line

    Her name is Vinita Hegwood. She promptly resigned from her teaching post at Duncanville High School last week after sending out a racially charged tweet about the unrest in Ferguson, MO.

    Early Friday morning, The Duncanville Independent School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to terminate Hegwood.

    “Our focus at Duncanville ISD is educating our more than 13,000 students. Our 794 teachers have been and will continue to engage in the business of educating our students.” the trustees said.

    Here’s Hegwood’s horrible social media screed:

    “My reaction in no way reflects the standards to which I have held myself and my students for the last 20 years of teaching,” Hegwood wrote in a statement. “I accept full responsibility for my actions, and I regret the embarrassment that it has caused the school district.”

    Clearly, Texas public schools are better without this crazy woman.

    A grand jury decision on whether or not to charge officer Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown, is expected to come any day.

    If the grand jury decides to not prosecute officer Wilson, Ferguson Chief of police Tom Jackson said Wilson will “immediately” return to active duty, according to Yahoo News.
