THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, Stephen Paulsen was arrested last Tuesday for arranging a meeting with a Boynton Beach police officer whom he believed was a teenager under the age of 16. Paulsen, who resigned last Wednesday from his position as principal of Morton Elementary in Texas, was said to have struck up conversation with the undercover officer via a social networking site. “Tony Texas,” as he was known online, is also alleged to have sent the officer photographs of naked men engaged in a sex act and a message related to losing virginity. The 54-year-old is being charged with online solicitation of a minor, traveling to meet a minor in order to commit an unlawful sex act and transmission of harmful material to a minor. All charges are felonies. It scares me to think about how many teachers and principles have been going to prison lately for some serious offenses. Do school systems really just hire anyone?
This doesn’t surprise me.- nik
