Kick That Punk's ASS!!!

My Recent Posts

Recently a classroom brawl was captured on a cell phone video. Nothing new there, except for that instead of two "students" in a cockfight over some piece-of-ass who probably instigated the whole thing in the first place, it was a student and a TEACHER!!!

In a way, it is similar to the infamous Rodney King video, in that many important parts were left out. And, much like the Rodney King video, I FULLY SUPPORT the asskicker, who in this case was a Black man being viciously taunted by a “student” who was being an asshole.

 

Although I’m definitely against arming teachers, I’m all for their rights to be respected as human beings. A couple of years ago, I was discussing with a certain foreigner (a PhD holder, and a very cool one at that) the approaches taken in how our respective societies prepare their young. The movie The Gods Must Be Crazy is among the best films ever made in my humble opinion, for the way different things are interpreted in so many different ways.

 

Anyway, according to the good Doctor, where he's from, when parents send their kids to school, they actually ENCOURAGE the teachers to beat their kids if and when they get out of line. In many countries, teachers are still considered to be honored and honorable pillars of the community, as they should be.

The teacher held back for probably better than a minute while the kid repeatedly kept on saying, "What's up bro?"  Which sounds a helluva lot like code for fightin' words.  He called him a n***** and a bitch about twenty-five times.  Sometimes the only way to shut up an in-your-face dick like that is just a good old-fashioned ass-whuppin'.
 
You know his students are right with him and most likely love him to pieces.  They will make some good witnesses.

A sad state of affairs. Teachers shouldn't be put into this situation of being taunted and abused but there is no excuse for physical violence. The school should have had systems in place to remove and deal with abusive students.

i strongly suspect that the teacher will be arrested and charged with assault on a minor(ok, now i viewed the vid - worse than that, child abuse), then lose his job, then be sued and lose, too.
 
The judge and/or jury will say, "Who was the adult in the situation?", then use that basis for their decision.
 
i certainly hope that social feedback will prevent the foregoing from happening(especially the lawsuit part), but a juvenile like this will definitely receive offers from a multitude of ambulance chasers who see an easy, deep-pocket mark; they'll argue that the school supervisors knew or should have known that the adult was unstable or whatever other bullshit they come up with to sway a jury.
 
IOW, the poor black guy's life is going to be ruined, soon.  Maybe the publicity will provide enough sympathy bux to allow him a cushion to land on.  After all, that lyin' CIA spook nutbar who accused Kavanaugh of trying to undress her(with zero corroboration or evidence) raised damn near a million, didn't she?

It used to be quite simple. When you had a kid who repeatedly proved to be an unmanageable asshole you simply kicked the little bastard out of school. Schools are for education, not therapy or counseling centers

@ TBH - Totally. If it were up to me, I'd use the fuckers to clear unexploded ordnance and/or set off mines and IED's.

Face - sadly I think you are right. He shouldn't have done it but most teachers have found themselves in confrontation with a meathead. It is sometimes hard to remain cool and use the system. They can be extremely provocative.
He will be hauled across the coals and the kid who started it, goaded him into doing it, will walk free.
FacePalm Added Nov 6, 2018 - 9:09am
TBH-
i have vague memories of an "incorrigible" label placed on students like this, which often meant a rather extended stay in a juvenile detention facility before the kid's life of crime and turnstile prison stays.
One gets used to thinking of prison as home, you see.

Whatever the cause of this particular incident, students standing up and trying to intimidate teachers has become alarmingly more and more common over the past decade.  Parents need to stop being buddies and start being parents again.

Proverbs teaches:
"Folly is bound up in the heart of a boy, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him."
 
and another something along the lines of "failing to discipline your child demonstrates your hatred for them."
 
Which leads me again to one of my favorite principles, that Americans were to be taught not only how to govern ourselves, but the consequences for failing to do so.  If one won't learn from words, they'll learn from hard knocks.
 
Unfortunately, it's likely that this 14yr old will learn that he can profit handsomely from provoking adults - and this will work until HE becomes an adult, at which time he'll get his ass beat on a regular, which may lead him to become a murderer.
 
From my observation, at some point in our lives we define what "success" is, then repeat the behavior that got us what we wanted until it no longer does, at which point there's a re-evaluation of what one wants, often as a result of a traumatic experience(but not always).  "Success" is defined individually, and it may mean a positive OR a negative result.  Masochists, for example, would not define success in a way that "normal" people would recognize.

"Parents need to stop being buddies and start being parents again."
I've always managed to be both, and raised so far three well adjusted, respectful and mature adult children. There is a middle ground between being a passive pushover and a overlording drill sargent.
In any event in this case I side with the teacher, and apparently so do most of the other students and parents. They set up a Go Fund Me account to help the teacher with legal expenses (and they have raised nearly $50,000 for him so far).

Well, James, you bring reason to this in parenting, not intended to be the reaction the author wanted.  I suspect most of those offering "their wisdom" aen't parents, ostensibly like the author.  As you point out, the community was with the teacher.  The kid put his left foot through the first doorway in the revolving private prison door, where he'll probably spend most of his remaining life.  I'll recommend a book to you, JAMES, I've recommended to a couple of others here: "Them - why we hate each other so much" by Ben Sasse.  Worth a   look and read.  It has renewed my belief and faith in the importance of our neighborhoods and communities as a solution for "American disease."

I don't care what age the kid is. That kid got in the teachers face. I went to a Catholic school in the 70s. One football player mouthed off to a 70 year old Christian Brother. He grabbed that kid and literally threw him from the middle of the room to the door! Respect. Vote me in, in supporting the teacher. That kid needed his ass kicked. That is what the older generation has to do! 
 
That is why America is lost. We punish teachers. That boy deserved everything he got and more. I'm with that teacher. Discipline is required. 
Jeff Michka Added Nov 6, 2018 - 6:08pm
Did he bend the football player over a desk and have sex with him before or after he threw him to the door.  "Don't cum back!!"  The football player settled out of court with the diocese many years later..

As a substitute teacher, I can tell you it is one of the most disrespected positions you can be in. Let me point out another angle. The administrators are responsible, or should be responsible for discipline in the classroom. Ultimately, the administrators make the decisions to reject a child or keep them, and the teachers have lost the respect of the administrators, who often take the side of the student, or, more importantly, want to have good relations with the parents. The bottom line is that there are many students who shouldn't be in the classroom, period. They disrupt the teaching plans and they keep the other students from learning what they need to learn. The following was something that happened while I was doing my practicum:
 
In one school there was a fight in the hallway between two students. A few hours later, the same two students were fighting again. Nothing was done to them for the first fight, so, wonder of wonders, they got into a fight again. I saw a similar incident at another school where I sub, and I watched one of the fighters, accompanied by an administrator, clean out their locker, walked out of the school and into a car. It was their last day at the school. Too many parents think school is to let their little darlings do anything they want, disrupt classes, disrespect teachers, and not even try to learn anything. Just today, there was a student who had been to at least three schools, and had recently returned to the school where I sub. This student ignored the rules of the classroom, after being back only a few weeks.
 
Too many students are allowed to stay in schools where they should not attend, many times because the number of students dictate how much money the school gets. Too many administrators will not stand up and defend the teachers and the other students, allowing just a few to run roughshod over the whole school. Some of the schools aren't that way, and by the way, those are the schools where I love to sub.

Overall, it seems that everyone finds the teacher's actions understandable if not excusable. His career as a teacher is probably over, and some sort of criminal conviction would also prevent his employment in other areas, but I'm glad to see that he has strong support, most importantly from the kids that were there. I couldn't help but to kick $20 to the fund.

Jeff is right.
I was a substitute for a few years as well. Fortunately, I live in a small town and worked from age 18-20 while I was attending university for criminal justice. I was known and liked because I was VP of the student council in my HS years. Most of the students were freshmen and sophomores when I was a senior so we had a good rapport. My classes were well behaved, and the teachers left me with excellent lesson plans. This area is so rural that it was common to see hunting rifles on gun racks in the pickup trucks in the student parking lot. This is no longer the case, but at that time it was
I live in an area with a homogeneous culture, so I didn't encounter these sorts of problems as demonstrated in the video. I couldn't imagine what it is like working as a teacher in the inner cities. I hope the documentation of the altercation works out for the teacher.

A friend of mine attempts to teach high school history to violent juvenile offenders, including murderers, rapists, home-invasion robbers, and other kids with very bright futures. According to him, there are fights and riots on a daily basis. I think that maybe in the not-too-distant future, it will be a model for public schools, lol.

I watched the uncut video in it's entirety and totally agree that punk ass kid needed his face pounded up even more than it was.
Hopefully he learned a lesson, and if he didn't, I suspect the next encounter will hopefully eliminate him from sharing the air that we breath.
I remember when I thought I was a badass in Junior High School, only to get kicked in the rocks by a little guy Pedro Sanchez, thankfully (and painfully) instilling some sense in me.
Every guy in Junior High School remembers their Pedro Sanchez, I hope.
