    Daily Caller: Filthy fifth-grade teacher busted for showing porn to six-year-old boy (Aug 22 2013)

    Florida elementary school teacher Benjamin Menendez showed porn to a six-year-old boy, reports CBS Miami. The fifth-grade teacher at Academy of International Education charter school in suburban Miami Springs has lost his job and is facing an obscenity charge.

    Menendez’s tale of spectacularly bad decision-making began, of course, when he showed porn from his cellphone to his girlfriend’s six-year-old son. However, things went south for him when the boy mimicked the porn action he had seen—in front of his biological father. The boy was able to identify Menendez, 38, from his driver’s license photo.
