Chicago - A suburban Chicago school board member has filed a lawsuit accusing a teacher in her district of duct taping her 11-year-old son’s face after telling him to stop talking in class. The lawsuit filed this week in U.S. District Court by Princess Dempsey on behalf of her son says the Lindrop School teacher put an index card on the boy’s mouth, then wrapped duct tape around his head. According to the six-page filing, the teacher let the boy remove the tape after 45 minutes only after realizing he was crying; removing it allegedly tore out chunks of hair and left welts on his face.
“After the incident, (he) was left with a bald spot and his face appeared as though it had been whipped,” the filing says. “He also suffered from the continuous bullying of his peers as a result of the incident.” “He would sing all the time and hoped to one day become a pop star,” the filing says. Now, “(He) has become much more reserved, not wanting to leave the house and only spending time with his older brothers.”
Listen I remember being 11 years old. Every kid including myself was a cocky, arrogant little asshole hopped up on sugar who made their teachers regret ever wanting to educate people in the first place. I can’t imagine the nightmare of waking up and going in to teach 5th or 6th grade everyday. The fact that more teachers don’t choke slam kids through a desk or just jump out of their windows to their death in the middle of class is absolutely shocking to me. So I get where this teacher is coming from. At some point enough is enough and you have to put your fist down. You have to fight back. Clearly you can’t literally fight back so you do the next best thing and wrap a roll of duct tape around some motherfucker’s head and cut off their flow of oxygen. What’s that bro? You can barely breathe and you’ve been crying for 45 minutes? Well that’s how I feel 24/7/365 putting up with your shit all day long. Big whoop, you lost some chunks of hair and you have welts all over your face. Welcome to my world, son. Maybe tomorrow you’ll shut your mouth when I ask you to.
