Tiger Woods' Teacher -- He's a Liar

4/2/2010 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mystery teacher is speaking out even before her news conference, claiming Tiger Woods' tale of childhood racism is a lie.

Tiger told a story back in 2005 about how, when he was a child, "a group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray-painted the word 'nigger' on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn't do much of anything."

Ms. Decker, Tiger's kindergarten teacher, couldn't wait, and even before she takes the mic at Gloria Allred's office at 10:30 AM PT, she's denying it ever happened, saying, "... no such incident ever occurred to Tiger Woods while he was under [my] care as a kindergarten pupil on the first day of class."

Allred, released a statement saying, " No teacher should ever be treated in such a callous and unfair manner especially one such as Ms. Decker. The time for Tiger Woods to make direct amends to her is now."

So what does Ms. Decker want now? TMZ will live stream at 10:30.

I call bullsh*t - I went to the elementary school Tiger went to before he went there. My kids went to the elementary school Tiger went to after he went there. #1 - Kindergarteners are on a playground completely separate from the upper grades, complete with fences and playground supervision. #2, Tiger was by no means the first African-American child to go to this school and was definitely not the last. Why would he be the only one singled out for this kind of treatment? It's total crap. What a d-bag!

parents?    

So an angry racist mob of rouge 6th graders tote around spray paint and rope just in case they need to tie a 5 year old to a tree and paint on him? This is BS!
And the teacher is a joke too, not to mention Gloria Alred. GA is a disgrace to all of us lawyers who worked our asses off in school to seek justice and right wrongs. She really needs to go away!!

KEY WORDS, "Not on his FIRST DAY OF CLASS.." She didn't say it didn't happen. She said it didn't happen on the FIRST DAY. Words have meaning.

gloria and her girls will milk Tiger out of all the funds they can get. Gloria is experienced at milking money for her clients. Of course she will get a good portion of these funds too. Maybe she can buy some new clothes to replace those that she has got her moneys worth out of.

With this latest client to now incite a deepening racial divide, a petition to have this despicable attorney disbarred from any state in which she is presently licensed to practice is long overdue. "Victim's rights" attorney and feminist? She's nothing more than a golddigging swine herself. You can bet she's behind all the whores being wooed for their stories in the major magazines due to the fact that she's out to destroy Woods.

What has she said about James?

Gloria you used to be a respected attorney, What Happened To You! This teacher is obviously a mean person or she wouldn't be trying to get money now. I am sure we have all had teachers that were unkind..get over it lady, it is part of your job, you don't know what childhood memories he had.

Is anybody really listening to this latest fame-whore? She just wants her 15 minutes of fame (and, obviously, a cash payout) at someone else's expense so why is anyone taking her seriously? What is wrong with our country that we give these idiots any attention? Tiger really had no reason to lie. He doesn’t need money and he gets enough attention without having to do anything. She has every reason to lie since she’s probably a crappy teacher, a bad person, and only out for money. Oh, and could someone PLEASE get Gloria Allred disbarred so we don’t have to suffer through anymore of these people and her disgusting press conferences?

Okay, after the Master's it is time that Tiger Woods hire himself the best legal team in the U.S. to begin defending his wife, children, and mother against this attorney's legal extortion and all the worthless pieces of kaka she represents. No honorable woman, including a kindergarden teacher, would hire the madam swine to supposedly protect them.

Where was this teacher five years ago when the book was written? My guess, just like every other kindergarten teacher who has a multitude of children passthrough their classrooms throughout the years, she doesn't even remember having Tiger Woods in her classroom and, hopefully, this backfires on both of them as it is time the over-the-hill attorney be stopped in her tracks from legally extorting monies from wealthy men on behalf of non-worthy clients. She's as shameless as the low-class swines she represents.

Whenever there is a troubled woman "victim", you can be assured that Gloria Allred is going to be there for a payday. The worst of the worst scum lawyer.

I wonder what poor slandered Mrs. Decker is going to make for her terrible victimhood.

Who is next? MARY POPPINS?

Will someone please sponsor a trip and pay for Gloria Allred's to disappear forever. I hope the Social Security Administration will audit her earnings. She should not collect and receive SS benefits. The retainer fee's she collected from all these "clients" are more than enough to support her old age.

I remember back in 1968 being at a party store where I was waited on before a black man. When I pointed out that the other person was before me, the store owner replied "The n____r can wait." If I can recall that, then I am certain a Kindergarten teacher would remember any racial slur painted on one of her students.
