Yet Another Kiddie-Porn Teacher

Posted January 18th, 2012 by Iron Mike

It’s happened again – community shock and outrage, quiet denial, questioning, worried parents wondering if their kids were victims.

David Ettlinger – a 2nd grade teacher at Newton’s Underwood Elementary for 12 years – is in jail – found with a stash of kiddie porn – and little girls’ underwear.

Newton may feel as betrayed as Attleboro Police Chief Kyke Heagney who believes a ‘rogue cop’ stole drug evidence from his department’s evidence vault.

I have a solution for both schools and police departments.

Yearly polygraphs, and yearly surprise audits of computers. In the case of schools – parents and school committees should be demanding it. Union ‘sanctity’ be damned!

Is society’s first job to protect our citizens and our vulnerable kids – or to shield public sector unions?

UPDATE:  4 April 2012:  Ettlinger’s problems are BIGGER!  He’s been handed over to the FEDS for transport to Louisiana where they believe he was part of a wide-spread ring which traded kiddie porn.  I don’t think you’ll enjoy southern ‘hospitality’ where you’re going David!

24  January – Newton Librarian Peter Buchanan, 47 – arrested with 21 images of kids – some in sex acts.  Newton, you have a problem!

UPDATE: Tues 8 Jan 2013 A federal judge in Louisiana sentences Ettlinger to 45 years in prison – followed by lifetime supervision.
