To all those who think we are making a mountain out of an anthill, it's not just about the plagiarism. It's about how Dan reacted to getting caught. Instead of owning up like a man of integrity, he has done nothing but give backhanded apologies, point fingers and lie. I'll be worried when the public isn't outraged when people who are put in charge of our children are less than honest and capable.
The article worried me further when Dan claimed he had no idea about any of those suits! So, either you are completely incompetent and unaware of anything that is going on in your own company or you are lying your ass off to save your skin. Neither of those qualities are desirable of someone in office.
Now I can't help but wonder what else he is lying about.
If you lived all the way up fickle hill, and it takes police about 10 minutes to get to your residence, would you want an intruder to have free range in your home while you wait? That gives someone plenty of time to do whatever they want, steal your possessions, hurt your animals, or, lord forbid, set your house on fire. They returned to the house just to ask the man to leave, yes with a gun, but hell I would bring a gun too, you don't know what that man is going to do. Plus, it turned out they needed it. Maybe they shouldn't have shot him, could have knocked him out. But we all know split-second decisions are difficult. Who knows what any of us would have done in that moment.
Besides, this intruder was not in his right state of mind and aggressive. He should not have been in the house and should have left when asked.
They did the best they could with the circumstances given to them.
