Bloomberg Mad That He Can't Fire A Teacher Caught With Heroin

Of course, the poor Victim of Society wasn't caught with the 20 packets of heroin in school. He was caught in court:
An arbitrator earlier this year ruled that a Brooklyn high school teacher should be fired after he was arrested for bringing heroin into a courthouse while on jury duty. But a State Supreme Court judge overturned the decision, calling the firing ”unduly harsh” and “shocking to this court’s sense of fairness.”

...The teacher, Damian Esteban, was arrested while serving jury duty last year when cops discovered 20 glassine envelopes of heroin hidden in a bulging pack of cigarettes, according to the city’s Law Department. Mr. Esteban claimed he was unaware the drugs were in his backpack
Bloomberg plans to appeal.This is one of those times even I can agree with Hizzonor. I hope there is a lot more to this story than was told here, but if reasonably accurate, I think the guy should have been flogged through the streets for terminal stupidity.
