Assault

Wait until he gets to Congress.

After winning a special election, Greg Gianfonte is on his way to the US House of Representatives as a Montana Republican. The election, however, came under intense scrutiny after Gianfonte assaulted a reporter the night before the opening of the polls. Late Thursday night, Gianfonte, in his victory speech, apologized to the reporter by name, and also to his supporters.

“Last night I learned a lesson,” Gianforte told supporters. “No, please, I need to share something from my heart here,” he calmed the room, “I just ask you to bear with me.”

“And when you make a mistake,” he continued, “you have to own up to it. That’s the Montana way.”

“Last night I made a mistake,” he said, to more laughter, “I took an action that I can’t take back. And I’m not proud of what happened. I should not have responded in the way that I did.

“And for that I’m sorry,” he added, to thunderous applause.

“I should not have treated that reporter that way. And for that, I’m sorry Mr. Ben Jacobs.”

“I also want to apologize for the Fox News team that was there. And I’m sorry to each one of you, that we had to go through this. That’s not the person I am, and it’s not the way I’ll lead in this state.

“Rest assured, our work is just beginning. But it does begin, with me taking responsibility for my own actions. You deserve a congressman who stays out of the limelight, and just gets the job done.”

The special election had already been under intense watch as a harbinger for the upcoming midterm elections, but the attack made it difficult for electoral experts and analysts, as it’s unclear what effect it had on the elections. For the violent incident where witnesses say he grabbed Ben Jacobs by the throat, pushed him to the floor and punched him, Gianfonte was handed a misdemeanor assault charge.

A few conservatives, including Rush Limbaugh, jokingly said about the incident that maybe an attack on a reporter would help any candidate win in Montana. However, others, like Don Lemon of CNN, rebuked President Trump, saying his constant attacks on the press have created a toxic atmosphere which may have encouraged the attack.

A 47-year-old Minneapolis special education counselor and substitute teacher David Scott Henderson has been arrested for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old little girl. The event happened as his three children slept in nearby rooms, according to local police.

Henderson was a father figure to the girl and had invited her on family trips and even gave her mom financial support. But then he took advantage of her when she came over to watch movies with his family and his kids fell asleep.

Once his children were in their rooms, he was left alone with the young girl. She claims that he held her down and even after protesting, he told her “you owe me”.

Even worse–Henderson’s wife, Cynthia, is currently in prison for the killing of an 8-month-old baby who was left in her care. Henderson is out on bail, but is not expected to return to his teaching job this upcoming term.

In Manhattan, a prestigious prep school teacher has been charged with having sex with a 16-year-old student in a local nightclub after the last day of school. The 37-year-old teacher claims he met the young girl at a trendy nightspot and had “consensual” sex in the bathroom.

The 37-year-old teacher taught some of the richest kids in the city. This is not an isolated problem within public schools, but a growing trend among all schools.

Reports like these are becoming all too common. Liberty News Now ran an article over the weekend about a female teacher who allowed two students to fondle her. Then she posted the picture on Instagram.

There seems to be a new report daily on a teacher who had sex with a student or a trusted educator sexually abusing a child. With the rise of social media, abusers are becoming bolder, and crimes are becoming more public.

Despite the long summer vacation, the reports of teachers sexually abusing kids keep coming out, which signifies a much larger trend. Sexual assault is on the rise in schools, and the victims are students being violated from their most trusted role models. With no end in site, and the topic missing from political talking points, this is a horrifying trend that is looking to get only worse as the new school year starts.
