    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Police have accused a high school teacher of holding teenagers at gunpoint after he found them ghost-hunting in a Tennessee graveyard.

    The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says deputies went to Shipley Cemetery, outside of Chattanooga, on Saturday night after a complaint of shots fired.

    Guess what? Maybe he thought they were grave robbing? We've been reading enough about it.

    Yeah he's bonkers for holding kids at gunpoint, but maybe he has a relative buried in there.

    Kids keep your tails out of the cem's at night. Anymore teenagers work my last nerve. Lucky I don't teach.

    Guess what? Maybe I should move to Tennessee. I just read this "Stacy Swallows deserves a medal not a trip to jail". Somebody calling somebody limp wristed panty waists!!!!!!!!!!Yikes. Apparently there's been desecration at that cememtery.

    Ummmmmmmm, the assault rifle?

    So this is under opinoins - is it editorials then? I hope that we find out the whole truth. I agree they did not need to be in there but I wouldn't of held them at gun point? Now his teaching career is over degrees are so hard to obtain. One works hard for them and his is gone in 1 night?

    That's that

    In Soddy Daisy it's commonplace for people to defend their property.

    How do I get to this Soddy Daisy?

    Police say they confiscated an assault rifle from 45-year-old Stacey Swallows.

    holy crap - an assault rifle!? wth? why didnt he just call the cops? there has to be more to this than just "ghost hunting". either the kids were up to something illegal or the teacher thought they were or the teacher needs to have his head examined. maybe both ...

    NN, That's what I was like "Assault rifle"?

    One of those articles says something about the cemetery being desecrated. He does live by there, but I'm doubting he owns the cemetery. We have one where they actually had to totally remove a WWII Memorial cause the kids constantly tagged it. Sad. Still an assault weapon?

    The guy is a teacher so maybe he about had it with kids. Then again maybe he better get a new career.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I immediately wondered if he had read of the recent grave robberies.

    Nonetheless, very poorly handled. Somehow some nutjob with an assault weapon doesn't particularly strike me as the answer to the problem. There is nothing wrong with going ghost hunting in the cemetary at night, as long as you are not disrespecting the graves. My daughter loves to go ghost hunting at cemetaries sometimes. I like to go during the day and look at all of the very old headstones. Yeah, I know, I'm weird.

    It sounds like this guy snapped though, doesn't it? No matter which type of gun he used, its a deadly weapon. He used deadly force, to stop...what? Trespassing? On someone else's property?

    You should never point a gun at someone you don't intend to kill. Yet, he not only pointed the gun at some teenagers, but FIRED it. Where did the bullet go that he fired? Did he even care? No.

    In my opinion there is nothing excusable or understandable about the guy's actions. I hope they prosecute him to the fullest.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.
