Is Reed High School One Big Statutory Orgy?

I’m not kidding.  It’s happening again.   This article in the RGJ has found yet another teacher apparently willing to satisfy her own urges as a perk of her job.   Here we have Bethyl “Beth” Shepherd, school district employee since 2001 and Reed High School special education teacher, accused of having sex with Reed students in her car off school property.  Felony counts of sexual misconduct between a teacher and pupil have been filed.  As of Monday, this is making the RGJ and hopefully other news outlets.

Why is this important?

A few weeks ago, my article on Marie Fisher, another female child rapist that was basically given no attention by media, parents, and practically treated like  a mischief maker, outlined many concerns I had.  Concerns that have obviously proven correct:  Washoe County School District apparently has more foxes in the hen house to take care of.

I’m speechless, honestly.  I’m also not going to repeat everything I said prior toward Marie Fisher, because it’d be wasted breath.  I am, however, going to say, once again, if this isn’t a big deal, parents, expect to see teachers coming to your boys when they’re 18 asking for Child Support.   Heck, they might not even wait that long, you may be paying for it YOURSELF if they aren’t 18 yet.

Our local expert WCSD Police Chief Mike Mieras is quoted in the RGJ:

“‘Well, there are two sides to a story,’ but after interviews with other sources, he added, enough information had      been gathered to suggest probable cause. ‘What her allegations are at this time are not quite matching up to the accounts of what was reported to us,’ Mieras said.”

Why is Chief Mieras the one cop who seems to be extremely understanding to a potential  criminal?  Or is it just me?  Considering there are underage kids involved, I’m curious as to what level of “story” is needed.  No, seriously, I would LOVE to hear these stories.

The RGJ is also quoted:

“Mieras said school district area superintendent Lynn Rauh, who oversees Reed, is going to meet with Principal Mary Vesco and do some training with the staff on appropriate behavior and personal relationships with students.”

The most important thing to note here is “to do some training with.”  The fact this is happening at all in such a cavalier way sucks.  Again, do we need to put signs up in the class reminding teachers to not screw students?  Should we have hall monitors for the teachers AND students?  I’m so glad I’m not a parent.  If I were, I’d have two sets of people to be upset at:  the school and district, and other parents for not holding higher standards.

Well done, Reed High, well done Washoe County School district, and well done society:  sexism goes both ways, and underage sex isn’t treated the same between female offenders and males, when it obviously should be.   I wonder where Chief Mieras was when this was happening.   Please, give us some kind of generic assurance everything is great at Reed High.

A community whistle-blower hot line, 877-874-8416 or school district Secret Witness at 775-329-6666 can be used to report the activities that can’t seem to be prevented by the school district or WCSD police.

Anyone has any additional information about the case can contact school district Detective Sgt. Michelle Burrell at 775-348-0285 — perhaps mention that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Hey, newsflash to the school administrators:  do your job now, or go find new ones–away from kids.

The end.
