Yeah, I agree. Surprised it wasn't sexual, that's the usual take. Blame, Blame, Blame. It's always someone else's fault, God, mother, poor nauseum. Our inability to accept responsibility for all our self created misery is mind bogglingly rampant in our culture. I'm always amazed.

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 admit, I am no expert on hypnosis but I am currently studying hypnosis (both stage and therapeutic, I have no interest in stage hypnosis but I am studying it anyway because I want to have a better understanding) and can't understand or see how hypnosis can cause two students to commit suicide and another to die in a car accident. 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 ...

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.
