Sometimes I question the intelligence of our species

But seriously, this is way out of line.

An Oregon teacher has been arrested after using a Tesla coil to burn messages into the skin of (volunteer) students. During a demonstration of the equipment, which can produce high voltage electricity, the teacher noted that it could also be used to burn skin. Then he proceeded to sear the message “I love mom” into the arms of students. Thankfully the scars are fading, but the teacher has been charged with criminal mistreatment after complaints from parents.

This is so far out of line I can barely accept it happened. What the hell, guys? Why was this guy allowed to teach if he thought this was ok?
