SHOCKING: NJ Substitute Teacher Arrested After Video of Him Allegedly Masturbating in Front of Students Goes Viral – This Isn’t the First Time, Either
This week, a substitute teacher in New Jersey was arrested and charged with multiple counts of child endangerment and one count of lewdness for two separate inappropriate incidents that allegedly occurred within the classroom.
According to PIX11, Nutley police arrested 58-year-old Richard Dunn on Tuesday after a video emerged online allegedly showing him masturbating in front of students at his desk at Nutley High School on March 11th.
The police investigation also found that Dunn had been involved in a similar incident just last month, on February 1st, at a middle school in the Nutley School District.
“While police did not provide details about the behavior they are calling “inappropriate,” parents PIX11 News spoke to claim they were told by students inside a media class that Dunn was masturbating at his desk. Video of the incident was widely shared on social media, causing a firestorm with parents online.
The clip also became part of the investigation.
In a statement announcing Dunn’s arrest, Nutley’s Public Safety Director insists authorities acted quickly saying “protecting the children, and the residents of this community is our number one concern. When police are called upon to investigate allegations as serious as the ones reported last week, we prioritize our efforts to ensure no one is at risk.”
Outraged parents were absolutely shocked by the sickening act, let alone the fact that Dunn had gotten away with a similar incident just weeks before this one. What’s just as concerning, though, is that the parents were seemingly not notified by the school, but rather, were made aware of Dunn’s degeneracy when their children relayed the information to them, they explained to PIX11.
“You know, you send your kid to school every day and you think at least for those eight hours that they’re safe,” one parent explained.
“Why was he still allowed in the school if there was something that happened before. This —couldn’t that have been prevented? Like, don’t our kids deserve better?” Another added.
PIX11 interviewed some of the parents, watch:
According to PIX11, there is no word whether or not the Nutley School District was aware of the first incident. However, Dunn was apparently removed from teaching for a short amount of time last month and had just returned to his post last week, so, it is likely that his absence was related to the first disgusting masturbating incident – which, keep in mind, was allegedly in a MIDDLE SCHOOL classroom. How this guy was not arrested after the first one is unspeakable. If the school administrators had any knowledge of the incident and still decided to send him back to the classroom, they should be held criminally accountable also.If you are a parent with children in the Nutley School District and have any comments or concerns over the unbelievable incidents they can be contacted directly, here.
