Why is the assassination of President Obama being used as a teaching tool in Alabama? The teacher, in northwest Jefferson County at Corner High School, was apparently using the example of where to stand and aim if shooting Obama as an example for teaching geometry to his math students. This being Alabama, of course the teacher was not taken into custody or charged with a crime. He's not even getting fired. His superintendent said, "It was extremely poor judgment on his part, and a poor choice of words."
