Teacher freaks out about National Anthem

At Brick Township High School in New Jersey, student Corey Zappo, age 18, recorded this video of his teacher flipping out at a student for not standing during the National Anthem.

For the unforgivable act of recording this video, the student received a 10 day suspension. The school board later decided to ban cell phones in the school due to the video. The teacher in question has faced no punishment, and the event has received considerable media attention, including a segment on FOX News show "Hannity and Colmes". See:
Keep them camera phones rollin'!

Teacher threatening assembly of students

From the YouTube description:
hey guys its me matthew i had my camera this day and decided to take it out - the teacher started yelling at the class i guess for throwing pennies- fucking freshmans- lol

I thought it was funny. Interesting the type of language adults in power use to make kids stop doing stuff. "You think it's funny?" "You might just be sorry." "Don't come in here and act like punks."

Don't they realize asking if we think it's funny or telling us not to laugh makes us laugh even more?

Excerpts from a business management course at U of F. Professor John G. Hall was later let go, and the filmed course was taken off of the University's website.

It's hard to find a good copy of this video now, but here's a sampling.
