Just recently we began hearing rumblings of a teacher who had allegedly forced a young child to watch Night of the Living Dead as a means of punishment. This occurred more than 20 years ago, but today we’re seeing long awaited… justice… I guess – being served. The teacher, Peter Bayliss, now 53 years of age has been convicted for his devilish acts of astronomical cruelty.
According to Mirror, Bayliss was handed a six-month suspended sentence, given an 18-month supervision order with the probation service and ordered to complete 160 hours of unpaid work.
This little story just gets juicy as Bayliss’ past battles with alcoholism come to light, and seem to have played a very serious role in this case. There’s a lot of interesting insight into the case, and while we’ll give you a few more pieces of information to chew on, we highly recommend you do hit Mirror to read the article in its entirety!
“These offences date back 20 years and since then you have suffered a brain haemorrhage, from your psychological report that may have been linked to your alcohol addiction.
“I take into account that you have recently woken up to the need to seek professional help for your drinking.
“This was not sustained abuse but you, quite deliberately, made a child watch a horror film as punishment for behaving like a child.
“And she suffered, not a long-term psychological injury, but from evidence she suffered nightmares for some time afterwards.”
Why the hell couldn’t I have been the one to be tormented with a Night of the Living Dead session?!
