    New Jersey teacher accused of telling students to hit each other

    “As far as I’m concerned, his purpose was in no way malicious,” attorney Ned P. Rogovoy has said of his client, Gregory A. Love.

    Love, a former teacher at Fairfield Township School in New Jersey, is accused of telling his kindergarten students to hit each other and of denying them bathroom breaks.

    Malicious? Not at all.

    The News of Cumberland County reports Love resigned amid the accusations, and the school has already begun holding meetings with the students’ parents and offering counseling to those who need it.

    This guy makes Natalie Munroe look like a saint.
