This is the same state who fired a teacher for "witchcraft" or something after performing an illusion with a toothpick.

This is nothing but an attempt to place blame for the tragic deaths of three teenagers. I do question the wisdom of using hypnosis on students, teachers or anyone without a witness present.

I also don't see what hypnosis has to do with "casting spells" Having said that, this man should not have been hypnotizing students but I do believe that he is being used as a scapegoat and that the majority of people don't really understand wh...

I had a geography teacher like that. He must have been a very good hypnotist because as soon as the lesson started, I would fall asleep.
