I just got off the phone with my daughter. She called because she needed a teacher's opinion.
Her teacher in grad school likes to use the overhead projector. He was busy lecturing and trying to finish up for an exam when she noticed the overhead was on fire. She interrupted him to point this out. He got agitated and angry at her for interrupting the class. He blamed her because he was not able to finish using the overhead in class. She called to ask if maybe she shouldn't have said anything (not really, she wanted her voice validated.)
I don't know this guy. I'm willing to bet he is a senior professor in no danger of being rated unsatisfactory or of being sent to the rubber room. Too bad he doesn't work for the NYC DOE. But, he probably would be an administrator or someone else with immunity from the system.
