Another Day, Another Assaulted Teacher (Video)


The penalty for assaulting a teacher should be greater than for assaulting a stranger on the street corner, because our education system is doomed unless teachers are given unprecedented protection from harm. I want the coverage of this student’s punishment to be just a prominent as his gutless body slam.  Look at how vulnerable the teacher is. If he defends himself in any way he would have risked losing his career. What is a teacher supposed to do when they are being violently assaulted? Personally, I would let my student beat me up. My job is worth more to me than my medical record.  I want every impressionable student to watch such offenders get significant sentences for their inexcusable crimes:


A YEAR nine student in the US has been arrested after he allegedly slamming his teacher to the floor during class — over a mobile phone.

Police said the New Jersey high school physics teacher confiscated the student’s mobile phone during class which led to the attack.

The attack, captured on another video phone, shows the teen wrapping his arms around the 62-year-old teacher and pushing him into an empty desk.

The exchange quickly escalated when the boy wrestled the man across the classroom and slammed him to the floor.

In the video, the teacher initially tries to continue talking to the class but is later heard yelling what sounds like, “Let me go”.

Other students in the class move out of the way but do not intervene and finally yell for security once the teacher is on the ground.

    Yike!! The teacher should be able to hit the kid back!!! There is absolutely NO REASON for a teacher NOT to be able to defend him/herself against an attack (from a student or another teacher). The students should have immediately gone to get the principal and security.

    If it were me, I would have smacked that kid back on his ass! I would rather risk my job to defend against an attack than let the kid get the best of me. Be it male or female, adolescent or adult, I will physically defend myself if I have to. This is partly why the US education system fails its teachers and students!

    This makes me angry at how the school system fails its teachers (and students). If it were me, I’d knock the kid on his little ass!
