Reginald's mother Adrianne says she was briefed by the principal about what happened, based on what another teacher says he saw.
"(The principal) said Reginald was punched, in the shoulder, and then hit two times and uppercut, and then slid across the floor," Adrianne said. "It weighed heavy on my heart, because I've never put my hands on my son."
Adrianne says the teacher was escorted off the premises and fired on the spot, but before that, Reginald says the teacher said something to him.
"He said 'I can't apologize for what I did, I was just having a bad day and I just snapped.'"
Adrianne says she cannot believe the teacher was not arrested.
If anyone lays a finger on my child in anger it will result in a very unhappy ending for that person
I don't care how out of line my child was
You punch my child and you will be using crutches for a long long time

This is what passes for journalism these days?
Let's take a 12 year old's word on what happened?
That article is complete garbage. Explains nothing.
There was a time when giving attitude to a teacher like the Walking Durex Advert did in this incident would result in a caning.
Such a shame those days have gone. Kids are out of control with no concept of authority or respect.edit on 15-11-2013 by Act1Scene1 because: (no reason given)
