Terrifying School Security Video Catches ‘Ghost’ Slamming Religion Room Door In Middle Of Night

Deerpark C.B.S., a secondary school in Cork, Ireland, has shared some shocking security camera footage which might be an indicator of a supernatural presence. The video is now going viral as viewers attempt to explain the bizarre happenings caught on camera.

According to Unilad, the school is the oldest in the area — it was founded in 1828 — meaning that generations of children have passed through the building’s hallways. But what of their spirits have remained?

In the above video, a door can be seen inexplicably opening and then slamming shut before a cabinet of lockers begins shaking and a wet floor sign is tossed accross the room. The video was recorded just after 3am on October 1, and the building was totally empty.

“If it’s a prank we don’t know how it was done?” asked headteacher Aaron Wolfe. “Motion sensors were set off at this time, that’s how it was caught… The female members

Minnesota School Shooting Revealed To Be Fake After Security Guard Admits To Accidentally Shooting Self

A security officer at St. Catherine University in St. Paul initially told police that a stranger on campus shot him Tuesday night. The school went into lockdown as 55 police officers, four K-9s and State Patrol aircraft searched for a male shooter in navy blue sweatshirt and black jeans.

But, they were searching for a non-existent suspect. On Wednesday, security officer 25-year-old Brent Patrick Ahlers, admitted that he accidentally shot himself and then lied about it because he was afraid of losing his job, according to the Star Tribune.

Police said that Ahlers brought his personal handgun to work, something he wasn’t supposed to do. According to NBC affiliate Kare11, guards at St. Catherine University

High School Principal Recorded Telling Students They Can’t Wear Leggings ‘Unless You Are A Size 0 Or 2’

A South Carolina high school principal is under scrutiny for telling students that they shouldn’t wear leggings “unless you are a size 0 or 2.”

Heather Taylor made the announcement to Stratford High School students during dress code assemblies on Wednesday.

“I’ve told you this before, I’m going to tell you this now, unless you are a size zero or two and you wear something like that, even though you’re not fat, you look fat,” Taylor said. An audio recording of the statement was shared with WCBD.

Sophomore Allison Veazy, told WCBD that she felt targeted.

“It was really hurtful, cause I felt like my size made me look disgusting towards someone in the clothes that I wear,”  she said. “I wear leggings outside of school and I wear leggings when I go and hang out with my friends, and to think that someone would think that I look like a stuffed sausage

Distressing Video Shows High School Cheerleaders Repeatedly Forced To Do Splits: ‘Please Stop!’

A video shows what multiple cheerleaders at a Denver High School were forced to endure: being held down and forced into splits.

According to NBC affiliate K5, police are investigating the incidents. The school’s cheer coach, assistant cheer coach, high school principal, assistant principal and Denver Public Schools deputy general counsel have all been placed on leave.

School administrators were reportedly given at least one of the videos in June.

In the video shot in June, incoming freshman Ally Wakefield is seen crying as she is forced by teammates and the coach to go into an extended split. It was just the first week of cheer camp.

Seven other cheerleaders are forced to do the same. Coach Ozell Williams is shown in the video pushing each girl down by their shoulders.

Wakefield’s father, Eric Wakefield, told the New York Post that he’s been unable to sleep since the video of his

4-Year-Old Boy Gets Banned From School For Having Long Hair

A 4-year-old boy from Texas was allegedly banned from his school because he has long hair.

Jabez’s mother, 25-year-old Jessica Oates, was told on Friday that her son cannot return to Barber’s Hill Kindergarten Center until he gets a haircut, Chron reported. 

So, on Monday, Oates put Jabez’s hair in a bun and tried to bring him to school. But, he wasn’t allowed inside. Oates told Chron that she doesn’t want to cut her son’s hair.

“It’s not an option,” she said. “It’s part of my child.”

Oates posted a video of her talking to a school administrator on Facebook.

Oates also created a petition on Change.org. On it, she wrote, “It’s a sexist rule that should not be implemented for boys if it’s not implemented for girls. It’s that simple. Girls have no rule on the length of their hair and it does not pose safety threats nor distraction concerns. The

Kyron Horman’s Stepmom Took Him To School, But He Never Made It To Class

Kyron Horman was just 7 years old when he went missing on June 4, 2010. He didn’t return home from his home in Portland Oregon.

His stepmother, Terri Horman, brought him to school that morning and stayed with him while he attended a science fair. She said she left the school at about 8:45 a.m. and that she last saw Kyron walking down the hall to his first class. But his teachers say they never saw him. He was marked absent for the day, having never made it to his first class.

While Kyron’s disappearance was investigated, Rodolfo Sanchez, a landscaper for Terri, claimed she asked him to kill her husband Kaine Horman, as reported by KATU2 and The Oregonian. Kaine is Kyron’s biological father. Terri reportedly approached the landscaper about murdering her husband five months before the boy went missing, but police never filed charges because there was no evidence

School Ignores Signs Of Teacher’s 3-Year Affair With 8th Grade Student Until She Gives Birth To His Child

A former high school teacher is accused of having a long-term sexual relationship with a teenage boy she met when he was in middle school.

According to News 5, 36-year-old Laura Lynn Cross had a three-year relationship with a student she met when she was his eighth grade English teacher. She has since had his child.

The teen’s father says he had concerns about the former Buchtel High School teacher and told both school and police authorities back in 2012. No charges were filed. 

Cross apparently even convinced the teen’s mother, who had custody, to allow the teen to move in with her through a court-approved, partial-parental custody arrangement. The teacher apparently positioned herself as a mentor to the teen.

“First of all, she’s a schoolteacher,” said the father. “To get aroused by a child basically you have to be a sick individual.”

Cross did resign from her teaching position in January 2015.

Walmart Faces Backlash After Advertising Guns As Back-To-School Item: ‘Own The School Like A Hero’

Images of a shocking and distasteful Walmart product display, which showcased firearms in the store’s back-to-school section, have prompted the company to offer an apology to customers.

According to The New York Times, images of the display began circulating on social media before Walmart addressed the situation.

“What’s seen in this photograph would never be acceptable in our stores,” Walmart said in a statement. “We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened.”

On Wednesday, Walmart’s social media team determined that the sign had appeared at a store in Evansville, Indiana, and that it has since been removed.

On Thursday evening, a Walmart spokesperson told The Times that it was possible the image had been “digitally enhanced” or is some kind of prank.

“It was never confirmed the sign was [at the store in Indiana], and it wasn’t confirmed that this was the store in question,” Mr. Crowson said. The company’s social media
