What Should You be Looking For?

See this fellow? Looks like a nice guy doesn’t he? He probably is a nice guy too. His name is Aaron Westbrook and he’s a teacher. He was just sentenced to 240 days in jail for banging a couple of his 17-year old female students. Such activities are so not appropriate for an educator to engage in.

The OC Register has his mug shot attached to their story, I suppose as a warning for parents and as a visual aide for those who are curious. Anyway, the point is this: he probably doesn’t look like he does in his booking photo – all scary and scruffy and and unshaven and menacing. In reality he probably looks more like this – a normal nice looking fellow.

What the point of all this you ask? So the streets are ‘safe’ or whatever for the next 8 months or so… unless he gets early release (no inappropriate pun intended). Either way, it’s a lesson that sex-offending-felons look just like you and I, only you know, they’re all pervy and stuff.

    OK, let me rephrase…

    “Either way, it’s a lesson that sex-offending-felons look just like you and I, only you know, they’re **more** pervy and stuff.”

    Better? ;)

    k- so I think this is the difference… If one cannot refrain from having sex with minors, they should not be a teacher surrounded by minors. Perhaps that is an unpopular take on this, but taking responsibility for one’s actions is key. Maybe I think this way because the only way I can keep from smoking cigarettes (I quit over 3 yrs ago) is to not smoke a single one and to stay out of alluring convenience stores like 7-11 when I am alone.
