Arkansas: butt of web interest

Posted By on Wed, Sep 17, 2008 at 1:09 PM

Remember Paddling Steve Halter, the principal of Booneville High School?  He was featured on TruTV in the clips above and below.

The superintendent wanted to fire Halter (not for paddling, though that would have been a sound idea. This is a guy who appears to get entirely too much pleasure from wielding a board.)  The School Board didn't go along.

The rest of the story: Last night, the school board created a new administrative position in the district, which must be flush with money. It then gave the job to Halter. Wonder if he gets to keep carrying a paddle?

The rest of the rest of the story: Hard-hitting Halter has not only been a subject of much discussion on TruTV's forum (great national publicity, Hammerin' Halter). It has also worked its way onto a spanking fetishist porn website, according to our source. WARNING: Here's the link, but it is not suitable for work, minors, etc.

"Oooh, thank you, Mr. Halter. Can I have another?"

More seriously: the Booneville high school kid's choice of a thrashing over the loss of freedom that detention would have brought tells you everything you need to know about the wisdom and productiveness of beating on a teen-aged boy.
