Yikes. Talk about ethics alarms failing!
In Lake Oswego, Oregon, Ellen Sawo was giving a “Career Day” presentation at Lakeridge Middle School. Apparently she was not getting the response from students that she felt was appropriate, because she snapped, started swearing at them and finally slapped one student in the face.
Gee, even Judge Duncan didn’t do that, and the Stanford Law students wouldn’t let him speak at all!
Perhaps Career Day speakers need to be more carefully vetted in the future. Anyway, Sawo was escorted from the school and was later arrested by police.
I wonder what career she was promoting. I sure hope it wasn’t “professional ethicist.”

I do have to wonder what kind of chaos caused the visiting presenter to snap. There may be a self-defense aspect to his incident. How could a student even get within slapping distance?
Mayor of CHAZ?
Rimshot! Joel will be here all week, folks.

Check her Social Media accounts, there one may find what the lucid might consider Red Flags.
Also, any Over-Under for tats, piercings, and/or…um…edgy hair tintage…?
She purports to have been educated by the Jesuits at Gonzaga. Interesting.
Professional slap fighter (yes, that’s a thing) would be one of my top guesses.
Maybe a preschool teacher who is used to enforcing mask requirements.
