Canadian teacher wants his students beat each others to death, gets suspended – WATCH:

A substitute teacher on Vancouver Island has been disciplined by the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation for inappropriate comments made during a Grade 8 field trip.

Joshua Frederick Roland Laurin was employed as a teacher on-call at a Campbell River school last November when he was overheard saying he didn’t like his job or being around kids during a field trip with Grade 8 students.

Laurin also said he wanted to use one of his students to beat two other students to death and injure a third.

According to the agreed statement of facts in the commissioner’s ruling, Laurin then told the students back in class that if he was going to die the following day he would want to hurt students as he wouldn’t then get into any trouble.
