I can just see what would happen if a special education student stole my ipod, oh Id go crazy, I mean crazy! First thing I would do is call 911 and wait for a detective to come take a report. Then I would call my Principal to see what sort of insurance the school carries for teachers' personal property, such as an ipod filled with vulgar rap music. Then I would wait for the authorities to do their job.
Or I could do what Rambo Brown did and grab a few bad boys off the football team and load up in a truck and head out wild west posse style to go seek revenge, teaching these good little boys in his posse what taking the law into your own hands is all about. Then once I caught up with the little suspects Id choke one of them, punch a few others in the head and scare the mess out of one of the more retarded of the bunch.
But I would value my 30k a year job being a mentor and a soft guiding voice to kids who are disabled and mentally retarded so I wouldn't do anything. I'd chalk it up to my stupidity for bringing an ipod into class in the first place.
Brown will get probation and will find another job at some teen youth organization and will end up back in the newspapers like Coach Vaughn.
