    I’ve noticed that too. I wonder if they received complaints from readers would they change the tone or at least the facts which they conveniently forget to add. @Theresamonet do you know what news source published the article?

    I don’t think yellow jacket was already in the room. But I agree that it took too long for his call for help be answered.

    I don't condone it but for a 64 yr old teacher to beat on a kid this way unless he has a history of being abusive my assumption is he "snapped" after the constant abuse. I couldn't be a teacher/principal etc. I hear to0 many horror stories and while there are people who should never work with kids the vast majority aren't looking to be horrid to kids.

    You don't get paid enough, expected to buy supplies, be nanny, nursemaid parent and teacher to ungrateful and or entitled disrespectful kids and their delusional parents and have people complaining you make too much. All the Nopes in the world

    When i was in high school, i remember someone threw a desk at my spanish teacher. And my health teacher (woman) was punched in the face by this humungous male student.

    I find teachers fascinating. I always wonder why they do what they do. I have the highest of regards for them.

    I feel so bad for teachers. These little ingrates are monsters.

    This sort of reminds me of an updated version of the Carrie movie. The gym teacher throws tampons all over the girls, and shoves Chris into a locker. Her lawyer dad threatens to sue the school if they don’t fire the teacher for assault. The school says they will counter sue for the same reasons, as Chris has a long rap sheet of assault on other students, including Carrie.

    I have NO doubt that little pissant has been previously disciplined by his other teachers. These schools needs to back up their teachers more. Yeah, I don’t exactly agree with his response, but I fully understand why. Besides, don’t most schools assume parent responsibility during school hours?

    Yes, I first thought was that he snapped. Then I read a comment on the go fund me page that stated he had been attacked by students in the past.

    The article I read said this might’ve been a set up by the students to make the teacher snap and film it

    ^If that’s the case it worked. The end result is an unemployed black man with an arrest record. I can see in the video on dudes face contemplating whether it was worth it to whip that boys :moon: and he chose wrong.

    It’s unfair but the teachers actions have made him a liability to the school district he works for and any other he could be employed in.

    I can't even watch the first video where the student threw the basketball at him and then stepped up to him like he was about to hit him.

    Calling for assistance is ok an all but it generally can take a while before someone gets there it's not like they are right next door...also most times we are told to not let that be our first response.....the statistics of the lopsided numbers of minority students being suspended or expelled has school divisions doing all sorts off other interventions before suspensions.

    Teachers also can get in trouble for leaving the classroom unattended so he would have to stay in there and take that abuse waiting for assistance.

    And teachers having guns in the classroom is a no no for this very reason either the teacher snaps or the student gets a hold of the gun.

    yes a public education is free but if you don't want to be there, don't want to act right then lets put those students into an entirely different program such as community service work or something....but don't be in the building and classroom taking away from my child's learning and endangering their safety.

    Based on the responses of this thread and his Gofundme- As long as the teacher doesn’t have any other issues in his background I think he’s a sympathetic enough figure to where someone will hire him once this blows over.

    . Hiring a teacher who has hit a student in their care is a nope regardless of whether people feel it is justified or not. The teacher will be convicted for some form of child abuse/endangerment because that’s what he did on camera with witnesses.

    Any school district that hires him is opening itself to a lawsuit and a whole lot of people fired for approving the decision.

    I haven’t even gotten to how many parents are going to picture their slick mouth having kid catching them hands and ain’t having any part of it.

    ^^^^ I never suggested that he could work in a school or with kids again. Absolutely not. He probably doesn’t even want to. But I bet he can get work in some other sector with a sympathetic employer.

    Sad isn’t it but police officers who shoot and kill unarmed black men still have their career and are working in it.

    That's because most of the times (meaning not in every shooting) the unarmed black man was behaving similarly to this boy...belligerent, non compliant, arrogant, threatening, etc.

    This does not include situations where they were shot in the back, compliant or or falsely set up /accused of resisting, especially prior to body cams.

    If they hit the officers with something (like the basketball) the shooting would be justified. If the student is doing this at school I’m almost positive that he’s doing the same thing at home. I have no sympathy for this student.

    Whew lordt. I realllllllly wish he had chosen to walk away. When I worked in a school in a rougher part of the city, I felt my blood pressure rising one time with this one lil girl deciding to call me out my name. I calmly stepped out of the room and called for the security guard down the hall cause I felt the spirit of throwing hands coming down on me. She was escorted out yelling all kinds of profanities, but we actually had a wonderful intervention set up later by our social worker in which she apologized. Our relationship was great after that.

    It’s not for the faint of heart and any young black folks I can catch the ear of, I tell them to stay far, far away from teaching. Particularly young bw because we seem to have an inclination towards these service careers. Not to sound cliche, but societal norms of decency and civility are all the way eroded and you can’t fix the myriad of social ills these kiddos bring into the classroom. #freeriley

    See... that's one 8-9 year old who would have gotten stomped that day. I knew there was a reason I never went anywhere near a k-12 career!

    I won’t get into detail but it basically involved a lot of meetings involving the parents and the principal, and counseling with the student. There was never anything punitive done to him because the parents insisted he had an undiagnosed condition (they diagnosed him themselves :rolleyes:). They tried to put him in a private school but all the local ones rejected him,

    I have begged her to change schools at least because stuff like this happens every year. She still goes but she’s no longer excited to go teach like she used to be. In fact she dreads it.

    DD has a little friend whose mom used to teach until one of the kids pulled a knife on her. She wanted the child expelled but they only wanted to suspend him for a few days. She was in a good position to quit and did so.

    He's up to 85k now! Students spoke out for him in front of the school yesterday.

    I think he's a representation of people being tired of little savages and their sub-animal parents of all colors. You don't even have to be a teacher to appreciate that.

    I wish this man some peace in his life.

    The boy will probably be dead by 18 if he keeps up acting like this. He was fortunate for the whipping, in the streets they'll kill you.

    :mad::angry2:@the bolded.

    I know kids can be undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, have an off day, be dealing with something horrible in their own lives etc., but teachers also should not have to deal with this. Something needs to change. More teachers need to be backed in pressing charges.

    Ok... FOR REAL, what is your deal?! Every time I come in a thread you're saying some off the wall, out of pocket and borderline racist stuff. Why are you here? Are you white? Or are you just unhappy with being black? Either way... I wish you would go away.
