A beating at a Milwaukee Public Schools high school, just days after school begins. A Milwaukee high school student was arrested after repeatedly punching a teacher in a horrifying incident that was caught on camera.
The shocking cellphone footage captures the moment the 16-year-old lunges at his teacher, punching him and knocking him to the ground, and then continues the beating. Both voices of the teacher and student can be clearly heard yelling at each other just moments before the punch.
The student is currently facing charges of battery to a school district official, and the case is expected to be presented to the district attorney’s office in the upcoming days. Police say the teacher’s injuries were not life-threatening and that they arrested the student, who could face possible charges of battery, local station Fox 6 reported. It is not clear what led to the fight but the duo could be heard yelling at each other prior to the first punch being thrown fox6now reported.
Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan has seen the video. His reaction: put the student behind bars for a while.
“We owe it to so many of the good kids who are being robbed of an education because of the disruptive behavior of a few,”
“A message needs to be sent that this kind of criminal behavior is not acceptable, and that there are indeed consequences to a person’s behavior,” said Donovan.
It’s understand that you’re not going to like every teacher you end up having, but there really isn’t a reason to do to a teacher what the kid in this video. No one help the poor teacher , Not one student got up to try and intervene.
