Not long ago, video footage of a white policeman roughly subduing an unruly black student went viral. The policeman was fired — even though many students (black and white) in the school protested on his behalf.So what happens in classrooms where there is no security? The Daily Mail says the following video was posted online of a group of U.S. high school students subjecting a despondent teacher to a barrage of abuse and intimidation inside the classroom.
In the short clip, an out-of-control student can been seen throwing things at her, telling her to ‘sit your a** down’ and threatening her with a chair.While he continues to provoke the teacher, others in the room laugh and encourage him.”
This is truly horrific.
Whatever happened to respect for teachers, discipline and courtesy? Is it any wonder teachers don’t even want to teach in schools where students need it most?This is what happens when there is no family structure, no strong role models, no fear of consequence. I guaran-damn-tee you that young man doesn’t have a father in his household.
This is a sad, sad testament to the breakdown in our culture and our civil society. And sadly, if a policeman was caught on camera subduing that kid, he’d end up fired too. The world is upside down.
