TL;DR

The girl was wrong to misbehave. The cop was wrong for hurting the girl. The teacher was wrong for involving the cop. If we can stop arguing on the internet for a second, we might be able learn from this incident and improve our schools.

My husband teaches in a high school. When kids are insubordinate, he will not escalate the situation. After class, he will have a private talk with the kid and calmly explain that he doesn’t and didn’t disrespect the kid and he expects the same treatment in return. That usually gets him an “I’m sorry, Mr.” and better behavior from the kid at least in his classroom.

I got into a heated argument with a buddy who said the girl was to blame as well.

That’s like saying Eric Garner was to blame for dying because he was selling loosies. Yea, it was against the law, but you give the guy a citation and then move on, no matter how insubordinate he’s being.

Same here. If the girl refuses to give up her phone then you move on and suspend or expel her after class. Why the hell do you call the cops? Why the hell is the cop slamming her into the ground? Over a cell phone? It’s absolute insanity

“It very well might be.”

Might be? What part of the video doesn’t clearly show a violent, unnecessary, unjustifiable attack on a defenseless girl by an out of control cop?

You are free to feel that race played no role in this incident. I do. The cop has a reputation for targeting Black students. He just happened to be caught on film this time around.

When I was in high school, I had a class with a rookie teacher… There were liberties taken, repeatedly. Hell, one day, she stepped out of the classroom to talk to someone in the hallway… and someone in the class closed and locked the door behind her. It was fucking madness for a solid 10 minutes. We had a curtain wall in that class room, one guy ran full speed across the room and jumped into it, we could see the class on the other side. Nobody was arrested, hell, nobody was suspended.

I don’t know what the cop was thinking, but I strongly disagree with his ridiculous overreaction. If I wasn’t clear about that I apologize.

I remember one time our class brought a substitute teacher to tears. Kids can be vicious to teachers. I always felt like we (students) were prisoners and teachers were the guards. It wasn’t until many years later that I learned that many teachers also felt frustrated with the system as well. Not to mention teachers get severely disrespected in this country.

In Japan, I was called “Sensei.” That is the same thing they call doctors, famous artists, and martial arts instructors. I felt like a fraud the entire time. That being said, some people wondered if I was going to teach back here in the states. I never even considered it. We treat our teachers like garbage in this country, and that is a fucking shame.

re: #8 Boondocksaint

I earned my black belt in karate at 14, and taught kids classes through high school, so I always had sympathy for teachers. But I still did stupid shit… like sleeping through some of my morning classes because I had morning practice (swimming/water polo meant being in the pool or weight room at 6 am) and that meant I made up for lost sleep in first and/or second period. But again, never got in trouble over it.
