NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - New York police say a substitute gym teacher put a 10-year-old student in a chokehold after the two got in an argument over a dodgeball game. The Daniel Webster Elementary School sub was charged Friday with third-degree assault, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment.

Detective Thomas Leak said the 58-year-old sub apparently began calling the boy 'a big baby' and a 'crybaby' after they argued about a call in a dodgeball game.

Stupid old geezer. What in the world was he thinking.

I don't have any kids but if I did and a teacher/sub choked my kid...

Perhaps I should just drop it before I violate the T&C.

Wow! Who's the "big baby" here?

Agree with the response, too. If you don't want to meet the moma bear, you don't mess with the cubs!

WW.

My mouth has even gotten me in trouble when I see a parent smacking their kid in public. Physical violence against kids, rings my bells.

I don't see a swat on the behind as physical violence. That's just a reminder of who's boss.

Choke holds are extremely dangerous and should not be played with.
If conditions are right someone can die in 8 seconds is what I was taught.
Teaching chokeholds in martial arts is not allowed here til 18 years old because of how dangerous they are.
The rules might have changed but i highly doubt it.

That guy should be made to go on the tv show bully beatdown as punishment.

I, too, have let my mouth overload my arse in public when I witness cruelty or brutality against children (or anyone else for that matter).

When you have a baby you no longer get to BE the baby. Time to grow up and be responsible for the child who depends on you to show them how to be a decent human being.

See my signature.

I agree, IF its actual brutality or abuse. In this case it sure sounds like it, but today we have a society that thinks THEY can jump into the middle of a kid getting his butt smacked for acting out...and I think thats wrong. Juvenile crime and misbehavior are at ALL TIME highs for a reason....when kids have nothing worry about in the way of punishment, that tends to be a problem.

Couldn't agree more. How can you tell if it's discipline or punishment?

Discipline is for the benefit of the disciplined. Punishment is for the benefit of the punisher.

I think putting a 10 year old in a choke hold because you disagree with the outcome of a dodgeball game falls into the latter category by anybody's definition.
