How to deal with overpaid teacher union thugs

Washington County (WI) District Attorney Todd Martens is declining to charge James Buss, the knucklehead teacher and former union official, with trying to incite violence through a goofy comment on a blog.

Any other decision would have been surprising, at the very least, especially since Martens is one of the smarter prosecutors around. (Another surprise to some folks: Turns out I was actually right when I said as much in a recent column.)

Buss posted an anonymous message lauding the Columbine killers on a conservative Web site discussing teacher pay.

"They knew how to deal with the overpaid teacher union thugs," he wrote. "One shot at a time! Too bad the liberls (sic) rip them; they were heros (sic) and should be remembered that way."

He wasn't seriously advocating violence, and certainly wasn't inciting it in any imminent way (the legal standard). His sign-on name was "Observer," not "Killer."

The only thing harder to believe than his anonymous and idiotic posting is that anybody ever took it seriously.
