A Texas teen was expelled after she made a video threatening to throw bleach on a teacher’s face.
Lauren Marie Taylor, 18, said the video, which has had about 500,000 views on YouTube and shared hundreds of thousands of times, shows a man telling the teacher, “I’m not going to make fun of you. I don’t know who you are and you don’t know me.”
“I’m not going to beat you up, I’m not going to kick you in the face,” said Taylor.
The unidentified teacher was apparently targeted in the video, but Taylor was kicked out of the North San Antonio Independent School District in March after a video of the incident surfaced. Taylor’s attorney, Jeffery Lewis of San Antonio, posted the video on YouTube to demonstrate why the 18-year-old was expelled, calling how the district used disciplinary actions to punish her “inappropriate” and “unfair.”
“You should see her in her graduation gown,” Lewis said.
District spokesman Dan Harris said he took a close look at the video and could not see obvious threats.
“It’s not in the public’s name,” Harris said. “It doesn’t make sense, and that’s why we made an example of Lauren.”
Taylor, who will graduate in May, has been suspended without pay from the Independent School District and faces a possible expulsion.

And I will put them all on the stage and let them take their rightful place.”
He accused the politicians of “talking about the future of their country, but their heads and their hearts belong to the past,” he said.
Mr. Trump also criticized the political establishment for refusing to accept the legitimacy of his election. While Democrats have long insisted that Mr. Trump lost the popular vote in December because millions of illegal votes were cast, others contend that a more reasonable explanation is that millions of American voters were prevented from casting ballots by problems with the voting technology, the voting machines and the mailing or
