- 2074 days ago -
Though Fierro expressed remorse to police for his crime he is clearly unstable. If he cannot be trusted around animals he cannot be trusted with children. Chicago Public School inspectors are currently investigating Fierro's case. DEMAND HE BE DISMISSED!

Mandatory anger management is NOT an option! Labs love water. This creep was taking out his inner rage at the dog...if I was a parent I'd raise hell to get my kid out of his classroom. This guy is in the wrong profession if he has no patience. He certainly shouldn't be near children.

"They're investigating to see if disciplinary measures should be taken" Are they serious? It isn't obvious that he should be fired? What's going on here? Hey if it's too much trouble for the Chicago School system to discipline him let me have a go at it.

Noted and signed. Thanks Michelle. This man should be dismissed immediately. There is no reason to believe he couldn't turn on his students if he could do this to a dog. He needs help; I hope he gets it.

Are the parents going nuts about this? I wouldn't allow any child of mine to be in the same classroom as this monster.

I would beat the living crap out of him and let him die slowly, and ask him, how does that feel, do you like it, that is for what you did to an innocent animal!!

Sorry everyone for saying this, but its that people who abuse and kill others make me very angry!

Very disturbing. I can't understand how anyone could do this to his pet. His anger issues and indifference to the treatment of others makes him unfit to teach children.

If he treated his pet who he supposedly loved, how is going to treat his students?

He has to pay for this. Not only with loosing his job but with some much more stronger punishment!

If I hadd a child there is NO WAY I would allow this man to teach him or her. People die all the time - good people. I hope the next person who dies is this man - he is NOT a good person.
