Social media is used for a variety of things nowadays. Some use it to network for their businesses while some use it to FREELY express their feelings. That is exactly what 28 year old, Dean Player was doing the day he was verbally confronted by Old Court Middle School (Baltimore County) teacher, Neil Dembeck. Player posted a Facebook status on March 6th reacting to the death of the late, Nancy Reagan. His post wasn’t to the liking of Dembeck, so he responded, but not in the way you would think an educator of middle school children would. Neil commented on the Facebook status first, calling Dean‘s statement “Disrespectful,” but he didn’t stop there. He continued the verbal exchange in Player‘s Facebook inbox. Dembeck provoked Player with derogatory language. Saying things like “You’re what they call a nigger.” Dembeck is no stranger to Player. Player stated, ” …we went to the same high-school. Knew him and everything.”

Is this someone you would want teaching physical education to your child? Although there was derogatory terms exchanged between both parties, it is quite evident that Dembeck provoked Player with his consistent slurs. We do not need people like this teaching in Maryland, or teaching period. Do the students and parents of the Baltimore County Public School System a favor and call ( 443) 809-4126, that is the board of education.
