LINDEN, Calif. - The Linden High School sophomore who videotaped a teacher apparently stealing money from student backpacks said she knew she had to do something. Justine Betti said students had noticed things missing from their backpacks in gym class all year. She decided to hide inside a locker to see if she could find the culprit. On Wednesday, February 13, she hid in a locker a second time, holding a phone video camera, with another camera propped up in a second locker.”I didn’t want to believe that she would do something like that because she was so nice, but then she did it,” Betti said.Both cameras show her teacher going through backpacks, with one clearly showing what appears to be money being taken from a pink backpack..Betti and several friends took the video to the principal.”He said that he’ll investigate it and he told us to delete the video but I had already sent it to my dad.” Betti said the decision to turn the video in was difficult because her veteran teacher is one of the most popular at the school.”She was so nice. Like I saw it and I would never believe it,” she said.
First things first. Why are all the students saying the decision to turn in this teacher was a hard choice? Because she’s nice? Umm she’s rifling through your shit stealing your money. Seems pretty black and white to me. But that’s not even the point of this blog. How about the principal telling this girl to delete the tape and he’d investigate? Yeah sure you will bro. Like that’s not code for “I’m gonna sweep this shit right under the rug” Seriously he deserves to be fired too. Vintage school administrator shit. Just trying to rule the school with an iron fist. Delete the tape? Who are you Stalin?
