District investigates California teachers in photo of noose

A Southern California school district has placed four teachers on administrative leave after a photo surfaced showing the group smiling as one held a small noose in a classroom. Palmdale School District Superintendent Raul Maldonado said he was appalled and has also placed the principal of Summerwind Elementary School on leave pending an investigation. The district did not identify the teachers.

A hyper-inflated reaction about a piece of string from a lunatic state? Nope! Never happens.

Wow. How disappointing it is that this story has been inflated to this degree. There is no context about this photo yet, and it is being spun out to be a racial threat. Parents are threatening to move districts.

Seriously tho, what is the context of the images, are they REALLY being racist. Looks like an inside joke about something. PC outrage culture is ruining fun/joking around for everyone. Looks like a bit of dark humour and thats about it

Racist? My first thought was insensitivity to suicide... I feel like that's way more relevant in the present day.
