A California high school teacher has lost her job and is facing multiple criminal charges after cellphone video emerged showing her forcibly cutting a student's hair while belting out an incorrect rendition of the National Anthem.

Cellphone video posted to Reddit on Wednesday shows Gieszinger call a male student student to the front of the class. She makes him sit, then cuts chunks of his hair while singing "The Star-Spangled Banner," transposing verses as she sings.

The student moves away, and Gieszinger holds the scissors above her head, demanding that another student come to the front of the class. She can be heard telling students that someone will be chosen if no one volunteers. Gieszinger begins to sing again and darts between desks, lunging at a female student. Gieszinger pulls the female student's long hair to the side as she attempts to cut it. The student yells at her to stop, then joins others fleeing the room.

Mrs. Edward Scissorhands must have mental issues, was on drugs, or making some odd political statement.

What a lunatic.

The former teacher, Ms. Gieszinger, reportedly has the support of a loving husband. They managed to post a 100K Bond... suggesting the financial wherewithal to hire a private attorney.

I expect no further incarceration, a successful plea tied in with probation and mandatory psychiatric care.

I also expect the student whose hair she cut to receive a settlement with the School Board.

Students at the high school outside Fresno, California, say the teacher had been acting odd for several days before the incident. Her credentials have reportedly been suspended twice before.

Pathetic. The husband also blames it on stress although there was another reported incident where she moved all the desks to the side of the room and was doing snow angels on the floor.

The love of my life died of creutzfeld Jacobs disease.(CJD).

It is the human form of mad cow/ CWD...

The teachers actions reminded me of some of the completely unpredictable odd behaviour she went through as her brain slowly deteriorated.

For her and her families sake I hope that is not the case, it is a very hard thing to watch...
