THIS POST AND THE TWO BELOW IT ON THE HOMEPAGE FORM A TRILOGY FOCUSED ON PORNOGRAPHY IN SCHOOLS.
JONATHAN CRUZ, PICTURED BELOW, LIKES BOYS. HE PAID THEM TO MAKE PORNOGRAPHIC PICTURES OF THEMSELVES.
When you read that someone is winning awards, be skeptical of how much they deserve those awards. Awards today are based as much on politics, race, and political correctness as much as they are based on merit.
Nonwhite teacher Jonathan Cruz, age 31, was an award-winning teacher. He’s now been charged with paying boys to make sex pictures for his penile pleasure. Maybe he didn’t deserve to win an award???
The last name “Cruz” is Hispanic. Mr. Cruz could be Cuban, Mexican, or something else. He doesn’t look like the Mexicans in Texas, so I’m speculating he’s Cuban.
Mexicans are sexually depraved, with incest, rape, and bestiality an integral part of their culture. I know little about the Cuban culture, but if Mr. Cruz is an example of it, then it might give Mexican culture a run for its depravity.
What is clear is that those with uncontrolled sexual appetites (I’m talking about you, Mr. Homo) should NEVER be allowed to teach in a school. Common sense says that nymphomanics should also find a different career.
But tolerance and a nonjudgmental attitude are the West’s highest values today. That’s why the West is in a death spiral. Only realists are speaking the truth, which requires judgment and condemnation of some values and behaviors.
So, let’s get real.
New York Post
An award-winning teacher and debate coach at the prestigious Bronx High School of Science — who likes to dress up like Liberace — paid teenage boys to send him nude and other lurid photos of themselves, the feds charged on Friday.
Jonathan Cruz, 31, spilled his guts after he was busted at his pad at 60 East 9th Street in the East Village about 9:40 a.m., admitting he had showered at least five victims with hundreds of dollars of gift cards in exchange for fetish photos of their feet, crotch shots and also “thumbs-up” selfies, according to a criminal complaint.
Cruz posed as a teen “nerd” online and told his victims he was a wealthy student at the Dalton School in Manhattan, the complaint said.
He explained his sick fascination in a message to one of his victims.
“Pictures just have a huge impact on me. Seeing your feet and face and muscles and room and awards and stuff reinforces what a big deal you are,” Cruz wrote, before asking if they can talk about sex.
US Attorney Preet Bhrara blasted the educator for exploiting the underage boys.
“What makes this case even more disturbing than the charges themselves is, as alleged, Jon Cruz was involved in child pornography while he was working with children every day through his job as a teacher and debate coach,” Bharara said.
Cruz used a Facebook photo of a former student and pretended it was a picture of him in conversations with the victims — who went to other schools — on the social media site kik.
He also paid a Bronx Science student for a non-nude photo, the feds said.
Several of the boys he corresponded with were from New Mexico, while at least one was from upstate New York.
Authorities learned of the case when the parents of one of the New Mexico teens found evidence of Cruz’s sick exchanges on the boy’s computer and alerted cops there, who contacted the FBI.
Cruz was charged with producing, receiving and possessing child pornography, and faces up to 70 years behind bars if convicted of all three counts. He was arraigned Friday and was being held on a $ 1 million bond.
One of the New Mexico teens allegedly got $1,600 in Visa and American Express gift cards in exchange for sending Cruz nude and other photos.
The other victims also got hundreds of dollars in cards.
According to his LinkedIn page, Cruz has been the Director of Speech & Debate at the high school since 2005. He was the 2013 National Speech & Debate Association Coach of the Year, is a four-time recipient of the Association’s Distinguished Service Award.
He was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the National Speech & Debate Association and is currently serving his second term as the president of the New York State Debate Coaches Association.
He taught AP US Government & Politics at the school and is also the advisor to the Bronx Science Gay-Straight Alliance. Schools department spokesman harry Hatfield said Cruz – who earns a salary of $61,230 – had not been fired but was removed from the classroom following his arrest.
