Bronx Teacher Sets Good Example With Fake Bomb Threat


A teacher at a Bronx middle school, identified as Francisco Garabitos, has been arrested after a bizarre incident earlier today. Garabitos was angry that the principal of the school had disciplined him for grabbing a student around the neck, so, in some horribly misguided attempt to redeem his reputation, he decided to barricade himself in a classroom and threaten to blow up the school with a bomb (one he did not have). The school was evacuated and Garabitos was taken into custody after a three-hour standoff. A scary situation no doubt, but you know what the kids were thinking: “Yay, class is canceled!” [NYP]
