Investigators Couldn’t Determine How The Video Popped Up

At O.L. Smith Middle School in Michigan, a substitute teacher was trying to cue up a video of Lewis and Clark for history.

So imagine the seventh graders surprise when a porn clip from the Internet popped up instead. It played for AT LEAST 30 seconds before it could be cut off.

According to Fox 2, Dearborn Public Schools are blaming the situation on a technology glitch…

Mhm.

“In this particular instance, it appears there was some sort type of loophole – one time too many – but very isolated,” said David Mustonen, the communication director for Dearborn, Michigan schools. He said with thousands of logins a day, things kids shouldn’t see usually don’t get through.

“Are we looking into this particular instance, are we making sure this doesn’t happen again, yes, absolutely,” he said. “Do we need to scrap everything and start over? No, nowhere near that.”

Questions still remain on how the pornographic video even made it to the screen in that particular moment. Did the substitute pull it up? Was their a typo in a search? The district denies both these things.

“The substitute teacher that was in the classroom was unaware that this video was there,” Mustonen said.

When Fox 2 asked the Dearborn police if a student was possibly pranking the teacher, authorities said there’s no evidence of this.

A letter was sent home with the history class kids, alerting parents about the “unfortunate and rare occurrence.” The district says support was made available to students who needed it after watching the images. The Dearborn police sergeant over school resource officers said, on their end, the investigation is closed, and they found “no criminal intent.”

As a precaution, the district won’t bring back the substitute since they can’t confirm how the movie came about.
