SOURCE – A math teacher at Steinert High School was caught on video this week shouting at a group of teenagers playing football in the park that they should “die a long, painful death” from the coronavirus.
The teacher was identified by multiple sources as Nicole Griggs, who has been a township teacher for the last 15 years and also taught middle school, according to the district website.
One of the teenagers, a freshman at Steinert, told The Trentonian that he and a group of school friends were playing football Thursday at the former Homedell School, on the 500 block of East Franklin Street, when Griggs stopped to admonish them from behind a chain-link fence.
I’m not going to lie in the first half of that video Ms. Griggs had me.
She made some fair points. She probably could’ve spoken more like she had an ounce of sanity instead of a crazy person just yelling at kids, but sometimes teaching will physically dismantle you. Also, I didn’t hear any music but maybe she was trying to yell over the voices in her head. I know NJ is basically a petri dish of Corona right now, but I could probably take her more seriously if she even tried to at least slap a maxi pad over her face.
As we came to the halfway point this is where it started to turn into the Falcons vs. Patriots Super Bowl collapse. Did anything backfire faster than “Go ahead record me. Put it on social media. Who are you going to show it too.”
I don’t think that could’ve backfired any worse. Hey Ms. Griggs next time just let Darwinism do what it has to do. If these kids get Corona and die a long painful death like you wished, than whoops, they weren’t meant to get to sophomore year. One thing Philly has groomed me for is when you see something out of the ordinary just adapt the “head straight, eyes forward” motto. If there’s a bum shitting in Suburban Station while you’re walking to work it’s not the time to reprimand him that even though this station smells like a toilet. It is in fact not one. 10 times out of 10 that leads to a stabbing. The Lord could resurrect out of a Subway grate and I would be like not now Jesus. I’m not going to feel safe until I get into my apartment.
P.S. Imagine being that poor dog. You just wanted to come out; stretch your legs, maybe mark your territory. He probably saw like 5 squirrels he wanted to chase and this batshit lady is just losing it on some 14 year olds having a catch in the park.
