Mean girls

Reading your article on David Hemminger being just the latest victim of the San Francisco Unified School District left me wondering if these people have never read the fable about the boy who cried wolf ["Gay educator's life upended by false sexual misconduct claim," January 18]. They need to stop with all the overreacting.

Sooner or later there may be a real incident of sexual misconduct by a schoolteacher and no one will listen because these people have methodically destroyed all of their own credibility. Gosh, if that happens, it might even be a teachable moment for them.

When these witch-hunts start there is no innocent victim, but the SFUSD makes damn sure there is one, the one falsely accused. Disgusting.
