Brand a Student, Get Fired

Pardon me, but if you burn any kind of symbol into a minor student's arm, what exactly is the defense to being fired?:
"Freshwater's friend Dave Daubenmire defended him.'With the exception of the cross-burning episode. ... I believe John Freshwater is teaching the values of the parents in the Mount Vernon school district,' he told The Columbus Dispatch for a story published Friday."
Yeah, let's forget about that whole skin burning thing because he is a great guy. Let's forget about the separation of Church and State. Let's forget about the 11 years of disciplinary problems.

But wait, that is not a cross, but an X.
Freshwater told investigators he simply was trying to demonstrate the device on several students and described the images as an "X," not a cross. But pictures show a cross, the report said.
Uh. Look at the picture and tell me the lengths of both of the arms is equal. If need be, measure the branding. Frankly, he should not only be fired, but arrested. If only for being unable to tell the difference between an X and a cross. Pitiful.
