Jacob Volkmann has been placed on paid administrative leave by his employer, White Bear Lake Area High School -- North Campus, while the institution conducts an investigation regarding the UFC lightweight’s postfight comments about President Barack Obama.

Volkmann, 30, serves as an assistant coach to the Minnesota school’s wrestling team and also coaches its youth wrestling club for children from kindergarten to sixth grade. His standing as head coach of the squad has not been affected.

“It’s very frustrating that they think that I’m being a bad influence on the students.” Volkmann told Sherdog.com. “That’s what their reason was [for placing me on leave].”

The US foreign policy might be like that, but the men are being domesticated on the home front.

in some cases. there's a double standard. like might is right. in this case as a role model who fights. the message that it can portray is to get something done by force and not persuasion.

Then if you can, Mr. Legal Genious, explain why HE WAS NOT ARRESTED, MUCH LESS CHARGED? Ah, let me help, what he said WAS NOT CONSIDERED A THREAT BY THE FOLKS WHO LOOK INTO THESE THINGS.
