Teacher sacked for schoolgirl rape Tweet

As a consequence, the 21-year-old man's first workday at the preschool was also his last, Göteborgs-Posten (GP) reported on Wednesday.

The preschool principal received a tip on Monday morning about the Twitter posts.

"[Name of school] preschool Start 9.30am. Think I will rape 6-7 young girls," the man wrote on Twitter on Monday using his iPhone.

"I informed the parents. Some chose to pick their children up earlier. Later, I called the police and asked if they could trace the message. When I read it, they thought it was very serious, so they came here," the principal told GP.

The principal continued following the Twitter feed, on which the substitute teacher also wrote, "Haha. A little girl thought my name was Max. That was too cute *smile*"

"Got myself out of changing diapers all day. Pooh", read a later post, followed by "Finishing at 5:30pm. Dying."

The principal suspected the new substitute teacher since the Tweets appeared during the man's coffee and lunch breaks. The principal said police took the man in for questioning.

The substitute teacher confessed immediately and is now under suspicion of being a threat to groups and may not be able to return to his temporary position.

Following the police interrogation, the man was subsequently released.

Not just a pervert... a stupid pervert.

Perhaps he can get a job in the police department.

"...may not be able to return to his temporary position"

Ummmm is this even still in question???? Obviously this man does not belong around young children, whether he was kidding or not!! Freudian slip, if you ask me!

I wish all pervs were as stupid as this one, would be soooo much easier to round them up.

Along with the film and music industries these are the dregs of society.

The guy should not be allowed to set foot in a children's school again! And who would think of hiring a 21-year-old boy to take care of little kids?

..behold, the future of Sweden.

RememberAisha, really? You're putting film and music on the same level as men who say they want to rape little children? That's just as perverted as the man in this story.

And Argentina84, a 21 year old male is not a boy, it's a man, and what is wrong with 21 year old males taking care of little kids? Hint: most are not pedophiles.

Honestly what is wrong with you two?

"who would think of hiring a 21 year old boy" - so that's from the "all men are rapists" school of thought ...
21:13 October 6, 2010 by Sam1
Yeah I know why such things happen!!! because they have no flexibility with jobs, they just see human beings with certificate and numbers, and official records and not as a human being, They live like a clock..

or a horse with covered eyes, cant see left and right, I did not have a certificate to work with children!! but I have a master in psychology..I got the job, and improved many things happening in children school...but luckily the person who intreviewed me was an open minded person very clever smart!!! and precise..

She didnt care if I was not blond or had a big certificate... she saw my character and how I behaved with children!!

Other certified teachers were like robots!! in their own world..its always the shepard that can steer the sheeps...not a sheep!!!

So i hope in future that employers do a proper interview with people and not just view their blond hair and certificate...God darn it I saw a teacher who never smiles never jokes, never anything just a cold blooded creature!!! she has a class of 42 children under her..if i was to be one of them I would get constipation on a daily basis!!! BUT YEAH SHE GOT LOTS OF CERTIFICATES!!!

and a law that protects her!!

Don't people understand what a joke means? Pull the sticks out of your asses. Your snot-nosed brats aren't THAT precious. A teacher wouldn't post on Twitter if he was really going to rape them. He's not a pervert, he has this thing called a sense of humor.
21:51 October 6, 2010 by David S
@Iron E - then he deserves the sack for his poor sense of humour. Not funny.
22:20 October 6, 2010 by Sam1
if some one threatens to rape your children that would be a joke..if some one come and says, your wife is sexy I'm planning to rape her while you are away, that would be a joke too...if a dentist is operating on your teeth and scratches his ass :-) saying I have ass rash and piles all day, I m sorry i dont have time to wash my hands...but if you feel my hands are salty tell me that would be a joke too right...

Hahaha....Iron E you and your comment is a big joke for today...
23:35 October 6, 2010 by Liquidmonkey
this person should be taken to the forest and given a proper a$$-kicking, then lets see what he tweets aboot...

joke or not, this is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over the line.
00:00 October 7, 2010 by mikewhite
I suppose it's possible that this man subconsciously wanted to get himself caught before he gave into his urges and did some terrible harm.

In which case he has done the right thing, strange as it may seem.
04:03 October 7, 2010 by Sam1
mikewhite@

beautifully said!!! I like how you put it down..

It true, there might have been some in his heart that caused him to write down and warm before he does something pervert!!!

its something deep in the psychology of the mind...Like some children do they fake suicide to get their parents attantion and love, they go through 90% of the way and wait for the parents to take action and stop them at the end...:-) so he gave his signals to be stoped, its his inner mind that sensed the danger and made him do something stupid to save himself from committing bigger crime.
05:08 October 7, 2010 by MarkinBoston
I'd be checking up on the people he was tweeting to as well. Think about it.
09:32 October 7, 2010 by Argentina84
Mr Puppy: Nothing is wrong with me, I would just not let my children under the care of a young man unless the young man is my own son. That does not mean I believe all male teenagers are pedophiles etc. I am just not going to take the risk.
10:51 October 7, 2010 by Puffin
I totally sick and idiotic individual

The headteacher has made clear he wil NEVER be coming back in any shape or form

However I wonder why the Local has chosen to describe him as a *teacher* rather than as a temporary assistant as it is my understanding that the guy was a temp substitute - it is not possible to be a qualified pre-school teacher at the age of 21 in Sweden.
11:01 October 7, 2010 by foxpur
I gotta go with #1 --- "Not just a pervert... a stupid pervert. "

But I gotta say, on a level rarely surpassed in stupid
11:56 October 7, 2010 by procrustes
My guess is the guy was joking with someone who knew he couldn't/wouldn't/had never done such a thing. He was probably poking fun at the current child abuse hysteria gripping Sweden.

Swedes tend to be very literal, thus their awful sense of humor. A Yoke either has to be absurd slapstick or told by someone known as a comedian, or the comedian wears a red nose so everyone knows they're supposed to laugh. Cliche's are rife in Sweden because everyone knows it's okay to laugh at them.

What's really sick is the majority of people ready to pass judgment with only a very superficial view of the facts. Maybe they don't realize no matter how thin the pancake there are always two sides, and only fools judge without seeing both sides.

Lots of fools here abouts.
13:05 October 7, 2010 by farnoxo
@Iron E - clearly you are the one with the sense of humour break down. I fail to find even the remotest thing humerous - and I have a very broad level of tolerance - in his tweet: it is not funny, not ironic....nothing (apart from stupendously stupid). By "trying" to be provocative in your statement you simply come across immature! When you have acquired a more adult perspective on humour then, perhaps, you will be taken more seriously.

What is, however, somewhat funny in the article is the last line "and may not be able to return to his temporary position" ... doh!
15:05 October 7, 2010 by procrustes
farnoxo--If you've even been around doctors or nurses you'd know their sense of humor is black and sick to extreme. You and I don't find what they crack-wise about as funny, but they do.

I'm not trying to be provocative--I just don't think anyone intelligent enough to get a job is so stupid to tweet such intentions seriously. His stupidity lies in the fact that he failed to understand the numb Swedish funny bone and the hysteria in the public about child abuse.

Be afraid, be very afraid, there's monster on ever street corner. Better stay in bed--but then, what about the person in there with you?!! Yikes!

Thanks to the hysteria, anyone working with other people's children has to be crazy.

SEE PPL!!!

SEE...the law is even getting into Tweeters and MSN and Phones and chats, fbook etc...

The law is not sleeping they are awake and doing their job just fine...But some Political parties make Sweden come across like a little girl with no self defence..

although Sweden has very strong very safe and wise rules..that USA will never ever dream of having, USA has abusive laws and police that can strip you on the streets if they want to..

But YET they cause more agrevasion and terro with their laws..Sweden has so many cultures but Yet its safe and beautiful...

B4 coming here ppl said Sweden is debochery, but I found Sweden to be more pure more clean more civilezed and more religious and a better place than any other country on earth...All what I heard was not true..you get more chance to have a paid sex and debochery in the middle east than in Sweden...Women know what they want and people are not hungry!!! Women are Equal to men and not a weak link that gets used and abused in comparison with middle east and others..Sweden is strong in its multiculture and what made it this way is the welcoming Swedes who look at the world as one country and believe that all human beings are equal...Amazingly this county is not ruled by Religion but Yet its has more ethics than so called Religion countries...

Stockholm the heart of Sweden looks like its the world and a beautiful garden you dont need to go to Africa to see its culture you dont need to visit Japan to meet the Japanese..You dont need to go to Lebanon to eat Falafel and homos..

its all there in Sweden!! Go Sweden We love you forever
19:52 October 8, 2010 by ITkiwi
Regardless of your country of origin, ethnicity, skin colour, religion or upbringing - this s%$t simply isn't funny. I know how I would react to anybody should they joke about this with any member of my family let alone my child.

Surely pedophilia is - and always must be - one of the world's few remaining taboos that's not up for for a laugh?
08:56 October 9, 2010 by jonathanjames61
This guy is not a teacher,I am 41,years,have been arround kids for 25year,have my own little one too,and have been working with kids for some time now,I can tell you they bring you joy when you listern to them,hear them out,and they are the only innocents one in our no time society,so if this guy should know this he will not send such a message,he is just one of this olds kids high on pils,bet me, he will never pass a drug test.This guy need proper rehabilitation before he escape to Asia or any African country.
