Comment of the Day: Maybe Don't Run to Judgment on Jeffrey Guzman, Alleged Teacher/Sexter

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We told you about Alief economics teacher Jeffrey Guzman, now facing felony charges of improper relationship with a student after he sexted some NSFW messages to a 17-year-old girl at Elsik High, where he taught.

We printed some of the sexts, which seem pretty damning, but one reader cautioned that -- as always -- even though charges have been made, Guzman is innocent until proven guilty.

Unless there is an actual confession, the investigators will have to do some legwork to actually find out if any of it it true or not. Text messages can be spoofed by anybody. Spoofing is a practice of calling or texting somebody where the return caller id has been faked and can be any number that you choose it to be. Easy way to set somebody up. The point being, just remember innocent until proven guilty. This guy's life shouldn't be ruined until or unless it's been proven.
