No! I think not!
Jolita Berry was beaten down in her own Baltimore classroom. A student repeatedly got in her face, and she told her to “back up, she was in her personal space.” The student then wailed a beating on her. A student video recorded the beating on his phone and only one student ran to get help.
The Principal told Berry that she provoked the fight by saying she would protect herself. Give me a break! Would anyone let someone beat on them, child or not? I know I would not. I may not beat a child, but I surely would protect myself. Watch the video.
My solution: Perhaps the Principal should be beat by a child and then we will see if she protects herself or takes it. I think the children of today need a learning lesson from the “old days.” If I ever disrespected an adult, my Momma would slap me into next week. I received spankings from my Daddy, but in today’s terms, it would be considered as a beating. He would leave whelps on my legs, but I turned out okay. People need to stop with the abuse statements. It sickens me. Children of today need to be whipped, slapped around, or punished. I am not saying that we should beat them, but they do need to be corrected. As we are seeing on a daily basis, our children are out of hand.
