If there is one thing that this pandemic has shown us, it is who the bullies and totalitarians are in our society. When this is all over, I’m going to remember who stood up for freedom and who didn’t. I hope you do too.
A New Jersey math teacher is under fire after she told a group of teenagers playing football to ‘die a long, painful death’ from coronavirus.
The Steinert High School staffer, identified by The Trentonian as Nicole Griggs, became enraged at students last Thursday after they apparently flouted the state’s stay-at-home orders.
Cell phone footage of the incident shows Griggs standing behind a chain link fence at a local park as she screamed at the teenagers.
‘Am I screaming loud enough that you can hear me over her music? ‘Parks closed. You will get arrested if the cops come.” Griggs said.
After one boy asked if the group can move to a nearby location, Griggs began to unabashedly scold the group.
‘Parks closed. The whole area. Get it through your thick head,’ she yelled.
‘You are the reason we are in this situation. You are the problem, not the solution.’
Griggs then said she doesn’t care that the teenagers are recording the exchange and encouraged them to share it on social media.
‘Go ahead keep recording. Who are you going to show it to? Post me on social media. You’re the idiot doing the wrong thing.
‘I’m just trying to save your a** and save your life. But die, OK. I hope both of you get the coronavirus. I hope you both die a long, painful death.’
