Latin teacher busted on underage sex charge


51508077f92ea15ed100001cAlternate headline: Made you look, and yes, the Sentinel made me click too.  Such is today’s state of artificial racial dudgeon that I began to wonder why the Sentinel would even race-bait like that.  But it turns out that in today’s installment of  “To Catch A Predator”, a former Latin teacher (as in teacher of Latin) gets busted for *allegedly* sending lewd text messages to a 13-year-old girl, and subsequently to a Seminole County (FL) Deputy Sheriff masquerading as a 13-year-old girl.  So, Latin but not Latin.

Per the report:

Ferguson and the girl exchanged text messages for about two weeks in October and November until the girl’s mother discovered them, according to his arrest report.

A Seminole County deputy then took over the correspondence, pretending to be the girl, according to the report.

Last week, Ferguson sent the deputy a Latin phrase, “Te nuda volo,” – translation: “I want you naked,” – and asked her to find the grammatical error, according to his arrest report. A short time later, he sent another Latin phrase, describing a physical act he wanted to perform, according to the arrest report.

His texts that day, in English, then became far more graphic, and two days later, he instructed the deputy, whom he believed to be the teenager, to tell her parents she would spend Saturday night with a friend but, in reality, it would be at his home in Oviedo.

Click on the link, and you’ll learn that this guy *allegedly* sent eight hundred text messages over the course of three days. First, who’s got that kind of time? And second, what kind of deep mack is he trying to lay out that would require eight hundred text messages?  Plus, why not try to drop that on a consenting adult?

Here’s some Latin for ya: Non Faciunt Stillabis Saponem.

    Sheesh. And we call the progressives race-obsessed. C’mon, it’s the Sun-Sentinel for cryin’ out loud. Even they don’t caption a headline with race in the lead when unrelated to the story.

    I’m more surprised they didn’t interview some prog for the story to say something along the lines of:

    “This incident illustrates the need to modernize the curriculum by eliminating instruction in dead languages so as allow more time for proper indoctrination.”

    NUM ME VECTO! Latten for, “What me worry?” Too bad this guy isn’t a woman. Most judges are men and when this sort of case comes up they remember that hottei they had for a teacher in hi-school and always go with a light sentence. (Damn that kid got lucky!) Like house arrest and the judge drops by once or twice a week to make sure she is following his orders. So the 13 year girl old turned into a deputy sheriff. Well S##t happens. So he’s sitting in the county jail thinking “HOMO HOMINI LUPIS” (Man is a wolf on man.)
