Middle School Social Studies Teacher Derrick Garforth Arrested for Vandalizing Christopher Columbus Statue


A Pawtucket teacher and two women have been arrested and charged with vandalizing a Christopher Columbus statue in Providence, Rhode Island.

One of the suspects, Derrick Garforth, is a middle school social studies teacher.

That's exactly right… someone who thought it was appropriate to destroy a statue of Christopher Columbus is teaching social studies and history to middle school students.

No wonder conservatives are so worried about "liberal indoctrination" in school systems!

It has been reported that Garforth is on administrative leave pending a thorough investigation.
