(commenting on the story “Brutal Video Emerges Of Female Teacher Violently Attacking Teen Girl, Report Says”)
John Malintone: I loved everything about this teacher. I'm just going to disagree with everyone else and rain down the love for this teacher.
If a student punches or hits a teacher in the face, I think it's the teacher's duty to literally beat the s**t out of the student. I want to be able to smell the s**t. S**t should literally squirt right out during this beating.
What on earth horrible parents does this student have that they have produced a child that strikes adults in the face, let alone their teachers. These parents need to be horrified by the actions of the school so that they understand the consequences of what they have produced. And teachers should get qualified immunity (like cops) for having to deal with horrible kids like these.
Although they fired this teacher, I guarantee, if they had not fired the teacher, the following day every single student would be in line. Their attitude and obedience would immediately fall right in line like a well-made compass.
Vanway: The teacher appears to be restraining the girl before she swats at the teacher, and the pie'ces de re'sistance was the stomp of the head. Sorry, but this means jail time!
John Malintone: If somebody hit me in the face, I'd probably step on their head too. Just sayin’.
AllofOurTwists: And if someone who outweighed me by 80 pounds was standing over me with her hands on me, while I was seated, I'd strike whatever I could reach to defend myself.
John Malintone: Unless they are a police officer. Or ... your parents... or... maybe a teacher. So disagree with that.
AllofOurTwists: Seriously? No. If someone has her hands around my neck or whatever the hell that sub was doing in the second video - which is not at all clear - I would strike out. It would be reflexive.
John Malintone: If a cop had his hand on me anywhere. I would definitely not strike out. Nor would I strike out if it were my dad, my mom, my uncle, my principal, or my teacher.
In my day, if the teacher had you by the collar or the arm and was pulling you to the principals office, you were expected to submit quietly, and you most certainly did NOT strike them in the face. So - disagree.
AllofOurTwists: I don't see what you're obviously seeing. I see a defensive move - the kid swung her arm in nearly a full arc and hit from the side - seated - I might add. There is no way she could have inflicted damage even if she had connected; her weight wasn't behind it. Calling it a punch is disingenuous. What the teacher did - three times - was punching. At no time, in either video, is the kid in an offensive or threatening position. Why was the sub looming over the kid? Was the kid sleeping? Did the video start in the middle of the altercation? What started it? A smart mouth - heck, even name-calling - does not justify what the video shows this supposed adult doing.
John Malintone: “I don't see what you're obviously seeing. I see a defensive move - the kid swung her arm in nearly a full arc and hit from the side - seated - I might add.”
Yeah - we are in different worlds, that's certain. The "child" is not entitled to "defense" against teachers, principals, police officers, parents, etc. That is my point. If a teacher grabs you by the arm to take you to the principal, you don't get to punch them. Negative.
“There is no way she could have inflicted damage even if she had connected; her weight wasn't behind it.”
“Calling it a punch is disingenuous...”
Punch, hit, slap, doesn't matter.
“Why was the sub looming over the kid? Was the kid sleeping? Did the video start in the middle of the altercation? What started it? A smart mouth - heck, even name-calling - does not justify what the video shows this supposed adult doing.”
You're right. These don't justify it. Hitting the teacher in the face justifies it.
AllofOurTwists: Teachers cannot lay hands on kids, period. If any millennial puke teacher touched one of my kids, I'd sue the school into oblivion. This isn't the 19th century. The disciple of my children is mine to oversee - no one else's.
John Malintone: Well then, I pity your kids’ futures. Without healthy beatings as a child to keep them in line, they will grow up pampered and spoiled and thinking that the world owes them a living, like the disgusting millennials today.
