The Real Story of Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield)


 Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield)



This is regarding Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield), a former teacher at Center High School in Antelope, CA, who arrested on 11/19/16 in Oakland, CA on suspicion of killing three people.


The following provides factual information to allay false and incorrect media reports from various media outlets that Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield), was fired for undergoing a gender change from man to woman while employed as teacher at Center High School in Antelope, CA.


I was the Governing Board Trustee for the Center Unified School District that cast the deciding vote to suspend Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield).

This action was taken after several parents complained that Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) had inappropriate contact with several students while on school property which included student confinement involving the actions of this teacher.


As Governing Board of Trustee member during this period, I am able to provide accurate first-hand knowledge of events surrounding Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) suspension from his duties as a high school teacher. 

Let this be clear, the suspension Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) was not for his gender transformation from a man to woman as the media vigorously reports both then and now Rather because several parents complained that Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) had inappropriate contact with students on during school hours and on school property.


As was the case then and now some nearly twenty years later the media’s support and slight toward gay-choice and LGBT issues maligned three brave Governing Board of Trustees that took the appropriate action to remove a teacher from his teaching duties based upon complaints from parents.

The reports were confirmed and verified by the impacted students that Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) confined  certain students inside a classroom during his transition from a man to woman.


Despite personal appearances on the Oprah Winfrey, morning news shows and several written articles published about these facts involving Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) suspension. 

The misguided media and LGBT community took their intense ire on the three Governing Board of Trustees members that took the appropriate action to suspend Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) as was appropriate.

This action was only taken after an investigation by school officials confirming the student reports of Warfield’s actions that lead to his suspension due solely to his own volition that violated several school board policies. 


The Governing Board of Trustees that voted to suspend Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) after confirming the student’s reports, were subject to similar now very familiar reactions in today’s media and LBGT community of name calling and ridicule that also followed by a failed attempt recall the three Governing Board of Trustees the voted to suspend Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield).


Now Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield) is back in the news again this time for killing three people and the media is still twisting facts not realizing this is new day in American, along with new President. 

Many good people who don’t support gay-choice lifestyles are out of the closet at the voting booths and not supporting gay bias liberal media that has one-way view of the America it depends on in support of ad revenues and customer support.


As was the case then and now involving Dana Rivers (a/k/a David Warfield), he made a choice that created his own bed that media and LGBT community expected everyone to lie. 

This was not case then and will never be for those who stand for what is right despite the name calling and insults by the elected officials, media or the gay choice lifestyle LGBT community.
