Update: A teacher at Cavelier-De LaSalle high school in Montreal has been fired after showing a Grade 10 class the video believed to depict the death and dismemberment of Jun Lin.
The firing Thursday comes a day after the teacher was suspended. Some of his students had rallied Thursday to protest the suspension, which they said was unfair since the class had voted to watch the video.
Apparently the teacher showed the video and the class later discussed the murder???? I’ll tell you what happened, all the stupid people congregated to Montreal. Rest assured, the people in Montreal do not represent rest of Canada. This is just outright stupid.
In a previous posting I mentioned that I watched the full video of the psychopath chopping up Jun Lin’s body and til this day those images still haunts me, the stuff you see in those gruesome horror films. Just when I thought I saw it all, as nothing really surprises me, but what I saw was sick and you’d have to be a really sick person to dismember or kill a human being or even animals.
The clip has been removed from the internet. You may find it, but why? Oh, but a teacher thought it would be good to show his students the video. Not only should the teacher be suspended but fired WITHOUT pay.
Furthermore, the media is at fault with the posting of Luca’s glamor shots as if he’s one of those celebrities. The guy is clearly a psychopath and there’s no debate about it, how much more clear can it be? You need a psychologist to tell you that? What has happened to our society?
MONTREAL—A teacher has been suspended by a Montreal school for showing high-school students the infamous video that shows a killing allegedly committed by Luka Rocco Magnotta.
The teacher showed the students the grotesque scenes on June 4 and was immediately suspended that afternoon — with pay.
Staff at Cavelier-De LaSalle High School in Montreal’s west end say they quickly informed students that a team of psychologists was available to deal with any problems students might have had as a result of seeing the video.
The teacher apparently apologized to the school by email and is now scheduled to lay out his version of the facts before a labour-relations board today.
“We condemn with one voice the actions of the teacher who showed students a video whose content was as inappropriate as it was offensive,” the school board said in a statement Wednesday.
“The incident is being taken very seriously.”
Magnotta, a male escort and porn actor originally named Eric Newman, is awaiting extradition from Germany and faces murder charges in the slaying of Chinese exchange student Jun Lin.
A memorial is planned in Montreal for Lin tomorrow night.
A video circulating on the Internet — called 1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick — is believed by authorities to show Lin’s murder in Montreal several weeks ago.
It shows someone stabbing a man and dismembering him. It then shows the killer committing acts of sex and cannibalism on parts of the corpse.
Another Montreal high-school teacher, speaking to The Canadian Press, says he has heard from several of his students who have watched the video at home and immediately regretted it.
