Bullying in schools is a problem. Usually it's done by students to other students.
Not in this case.
In this case the teacher, Stephan Hudson, who looks like he weighs in at over 250 pounds, beat up on freshman Kristoff John, who weighs in at 116
Great news is there is a video catching the teacher in the act.
Oh yeah. The teacher is making $95,202 a year.
Apparently what set the teacher off was the boy tried to get into the school even when his ID didn't work properly. To add insult to injury the
school lied to the boy's mother, claiming it was the boy who started the altercation.
“They lied to me!” the betrayed mom said tearfully when The News showed her the clip for the first time. “No one wants to see their son
taken advantage of and beaten like this.” The school had told her that her son had been the aggressor in a “little incident” with a teacher, she
said. She was told that the school was being generous by not punishing the boy. Now, she said, she’s furious — and wants answers. Kristoff said
the attack left his back so sore that he couldn’t walk properly for several days. “I was fearing for my life,” he said. “I was surprised he
hit me. I didn’t have time to think.”
Looks like the kid said something while walking away, so the teacher grabbed him and pulled him back to confront him, then the kid swung at his head
which pissed him off. I assume whatever he might have said was pretty bad to ignite that kind of hostility.
Not taking any sides, just pointing out that two wrongs don't make a right. Naturally, the teacher should have been the bigger man, pardon the pun,
and let it slide rather than commit to what he ended up doing. His career is most likely over now and he'll never get another teaching job.
Really? Can we be honest with ourselves for a moment? No one knows what this kid was saying while walking away. If his I.D. wasn't working properly
and the teacher didn't know the kid, then the kid entering the school without permission / mouthing off would be considered "dangerous."
While the scene turned excessive, it seemed as if the boy was the one doing most of the fighting, the teacher looked more as if he was trying to
subdue him, with just reason. That kid was out of control.
That's not good. The teacher should not use that kind of force on the kid, they should have handle this situation in a more professional way. The
kid's today watch to many violence on TV, they get agitated very fast and don't like to be told what to do by adults. You have to blame both.
I really don't understand today's society's attitude that a kid can say anything they want to and not be held accountable for their actions. If
you're being antagonistic a person should have every right to to defend themselves, regardless of the nature of the antagonism.
Just because they're a kid doesn't mean they can do whatever they want to without any kind of responsibilities for their actions.
I do not understand this attitude that a kid should be allowed to mouth off at any adult they so wish without having any consequences to their
Freedom of speech is one thing, but trying to hurt another person is not free speech.
All this babying is started to get on my nerves. Clearly a punk showing off in school and he got handled. The people in this thread claiming this is
'unforgivable' and 'disgusting' are really fooling themselves. You're the main reason the new generations are growing up without discipline, respect
for authority, or cajones. We're breeding a bunch of cry baby wimps. I'm tired of it

I don't think the teacher should have done that for one reason, and it isn't because the kid didn't deserve it. It is for his own sake due to how
people will react over him touching a child.
The video looked bad but if you watch closely, the teacher was just hanging on to the child as the child tried to scramble away into the table. I
wasn't sure at first which it was. The teacher just grabbed the kids arm and didn't let go.
