    One of CNN's most popular citizen reporters was fired from his substitute teaching job after school officials unearthed evidence that he used to be a gay porn star.....They didn't have to dig deep.

    Shawn Loftis ditched his porn career in the spring of 2010 to focus on teaching, but he is still widely known by his X-rated alias, Collin O'Neal, the Miami New Times reported.....His hard-core performances won him several awards, and a Wikipedia page lists his porn accolades and some of the videos he's appeared in.
    A print-out of the page was included in a memo that a Florida middle school principal sent to Loftis, calling him down to the office like a bad pupil to discuss his non-compliance with the school's code of ethics.

    Loftis was suspended from his substitute teaching position in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools in January; his teacher's certification was revoked in April, despite his insistence that his porn days were over.
    snip
    Loftis thinks the Miami-Dade County Public School system should have taken the same approach. He filed a complaint about his case with the American Civil Liberties Union, but it failed to get him back into the classroom.

    But, on the bright side, at least he had a fall-back option: he's now back to making porn flicks.
    .....At Least Until the HIV virus catches up with him...

    I have to take issue with this, Megs. It was a good thing for this guy to get out of porn. I mean don't we all want folks to leave damaging, immoral lives to be better people? Now, I understand the discomfort of having him around kids, but we should leave some kind of outlet for people who leave immoral and corrosive lifestyles, like porn. It sounds like he saw the error of his ways and worked to do something socially meaningful. Is it fair that he loses that? Maybe he shouldn't be teaching kids, but there must be something like curriculum planning he could do, provided it was something like math or grammar and not values based.

    I know I'm rambling here, but when people make stupid mistakes in their youth and clean up their lives, should they always have to sleep with one eye open? I can see being punitive if we're talking about recidivist criminals like child molestors, but if someone did porn or exotic dancing or stripping, should that dictate the rest of their lives, even when they see the light and leave a bad life?

    This freak should not be allowed to be within a mile of any school/playground or park where kids congregate. FYI, I am more concerned about him molesting children. So, excuse me if I do not agree with your bleeding heart.

    If you notice, I did say that maybe he shouldn't be near kids.

    Why is it that those who want sinners to repent want them to remain jobless when they do?

    So... because he's gay he's a child molester?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    He's a porn star, not a child molester.

    Well I know that.

    Oh the hell with this, I'm not even going to bother. People can think whatever they want.

    Elspeth I didn't fire him,I just posted the piece..I'm not sure how to take the whole thing ?If he gave up his porn work to better himself,good for him..It doesn't mention what CNN did about it but I suspect they don't care if he was a baby raper as long as he was a good reporter..The school systems cant afford to take a chance on these critters once they find out they have worked in the porn industry and be around little kids,so they had to fire him.....It did mention that he returned to his past porn work so I guess he wasn't reformed after all..
    As I mentioned in my comment he will end up dead from HIV if he keeps working in the Gay Sex market,over twenty percent of Active Gays are HIV positive,especially Black Gays...

    my question is how does gay porn = child molester?

    Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily think he needs to work in the school system, I just don't get the logic that is being used to connect the two

    Does Fettpett = PC?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
