Boner of the Day for June 5th, 2019

Round One


Teacher, Now Fired, Thought Tweets to Trump About Immigrants Were PrivateTeacher, Now Fired, Thought Tweets to Trump About Immigrants Were PrivateAn all-caps post appeared on Mark Chambers’ personal Facebook page last week that was reportedly critical of gays, transgender people, abortion rights advocates and socialists. When a friend commented that a “revolution” was needed for change, Chambers wrote back that “with out [sic] killing them out there’s no way to fix it.”Chambers would later claim he thought that response was a private message. But as the mayor of Carbon Hill, Ala., a city of about 2,000 people roughly 60 miles northwest of Birmingham, learned this week, his words reached a far wider audience than originally intended.The exchange has since sparked widespread backlash from many who accused the mayor of “inciting violence.” On Tuesday, Chambers issued a lengthy apology expressing “regret” for his comment, but argued that his sentiments — which many interpreted as a direct call to kill LGBTQ people — had been “taken out of context.”


A high school English teacher in Texas was fired for tweets about “illegal students” she thought she sent privately to President Donald Trump. Board members from the Fort Worth Independent School District voted unanimously Tuesday night to fire teacher Georgia Clark after she posted a string of comments about illegal immigration from a now-deleted Twitter account. More than a dozen people spoke at the school board hearing, none of them in defense of Clark. “Her comments were hurtful, irresponsible, misleading and disrespectful to the students she is supposed to protect and educate,” one concerned citizen said. The school board made the decision after Clark admitted to district investigators she sent a series of tweets to Trump last month but thought they were private. One of those tweets said the school district is “loaded with illegal students from Mexico.” “I really do need a contact here in Fort Worth who should be actively investigating and removing the illegals that are in [the] public school system,” another read.

Round Two


Utah cops may soon face discipline for sexting and masturbation on duty. At its quarterly meeting on Tuesday, the Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Council was briefed on proposed discipline on the issue, which falls under sexual misconduct. POST Executive Director Scott Stephenson said there have been issues that need to be addressed where officers have engaged in inappropriate communications with confidential informants, colleagues and others. “I don’t think taxpayers would like the fact that their officers — some, very few — would be taking time when they should be enforcing the laws or protecting and sending inappropriate messages”. When Stephenson brought up the issue of an officer who “pleasures themselves out sight, on duty in their car” it brought a round of nervous laughter from the POST Council.Stephenson said it was unfortunate, but POST currently has no rules against it so they are drafting some. The sexting rule is expected to also address emojis and whether those could be considered inappropriate. The disciplinary guidelines will be considered at POST Council’s next meeting in September.

Boner Candidate #2: I JUST DON’T WANT IT IN MY FACE.

Pride flags stir up controversy in Heber. A new set of Pride flags flying from the lamp posts along Main Street in Heber City led to some debate at Tuesday night’s city council meeting. “I have no problem with people’s sexual orientation.  I have a real problem with it being flashed in front of my face,” said Patricia Thompson, a Heber citizen. “What about acceptance of my values as a Christian woman? Are you going to fly a flag in support of those of us who are straight?” another woman said to the council. The flags were paid for through private funds; no public money was used.  They are hung on city-owned lamp posts and went through the usual approval process through public works.  Mayor Kelleen Potter said she was consulted and gave approval for the flags as a way to recognize a broader celebration of a civil rights issue. “This is not a political issue. This is an issue about loving those around us. Period,” said Allison Phillips Belnap, the Heber citizen who raised the money for the flags.The flags will stay up for their approved period of time.

He was wearing a black leather style jacket, camo pants, desert tan military style boots and black gloves. The other wore a tan toboggan style hat and scarf around his face along with a black long sleeve Under Armour shirt, black gloves, black shorts and white tube socks with colored stripes.
