Here is yet another example where a teacher is held guilty until proven innocent. If I were backed into a corner and had a kid bigger than me get in my face like that, I would have punched him too. Then people wonder why kids today have no respect for authority. They see cases like this where all the attention is placed on a teacher defending herself and suddenly it's child abuse and blah blah blah. Take this kid to juvenile detention already and teach him some manners and public decency. All we're doing is setting an example that it's ok to corner and bully a teacher and get away with it because "they're just a teacher, they can't do anything. Thats child abuse". Give me a break. Thoughts?

For the safety of the children, I have no problem with removing her until they were sure it was self defense and justified (and it was)

Hadsock was taken to the principal’s office while the authorities were called. She was put in a police car, handcuffed, and taken to the local precinct to have a mug shot taken. She was initially charged with felony child abuse, but the charge was recently dropped when the state attorney’s office determined she had acted in self-defense.
Ohhh my.... i would be curious to know what evidence they had to handcuff her, etc...

While any legal charges against her have been dropped, her future as a teacher at Central High School is uncertain.

"It’s a small faction of students that’s making it so bad all across the nation"
I agree with this statement. In more than just students. Because our nations has progressed into a highly over sensitive, overly PC, overly free pass world. I don't see it changing for the better any time soon...

Tison feels the incident is a reflection of a growing trend of insubordination against teachers nationwide.
IMO, when parents lack the ability to discipline and teach their children right from wrong and to respect authority, this is the type of result society can expect. Parents should be held responsible for their children's flagrant disregard for respect.
