A Houston teacher of the ancient Islamic discipline "Algebra" has been suspended for making fun of a ninth grade Muslim student, in front of the whole class, following Osama bin Laden's death. The PC Police strike again! As they should, because this guy sounds like a priceless moron.

A mother of another student in the class relays what her daughter told her about the incident (via KTRK):

She said, "The teacher told the student that 'I bet you're grieving.' And she basically looked at him and said what are you talking about? And he said I heard about your uncle's death and she said wow, because she understood that he was referring about Osama bin Laden being killed and was racially profiling her." [...]

The mother said, "The student ended up crying over what was said to her by the teacher and the teacher asked her why she was crying and another student said it was because of what you said earlier. And his response was, oh, OK, and just kind of smirked and giggled and walked away."

The teacher has been placed on administrative leave, pending an investigation. But at least... at least he got to stick it to the Muslims! That's gotta be worth something.
