TEXAS: Teacher Suspended For Taunting Muslim Student About Bin Laden

A Texas high school teacher has been suspended for taunting a Muslim girl about the death of Osama Bin Laden.
He allegedly told a 9th grade Muslim girl in his algebra class "I bet that you're grieving" on Monday following the death of Osama bin Laden. According to one parent at Clear Brook High School in Houston who spoke about the incident to a local ABC affiliate, the teacher also said, "I heard about your uncle's death." The parent said the student "understood that he was referring about Osama bin Laden being killed and was racially profiling her." The name of the alleged victim of the comment has not been released. She is being described as an "American-born girl of Muslim faith."
According to a witness, when the girl began crying, the teacher laughed and walked away.
