A 13-year-old Washington School boy became suicidal according to his parents after his teacher allegedly bullied him and wrestled him to the floor.
The unnamed teen told his parents 'I want to die. I want to kill myself.' following the incident involving John Rosi the school wrestling coach at Gig Harbor's Kopachuk Middle School.
Caught on film by fellow students the alleged bullying by Rosi directly followed a 15-minute period where the boys fellow eighth-graders swung him from his arms and legs, wrote on his feet, stuck a traffic cone on his head, gagged him with his own sock and taunted him.

I’m so glad I took my child out of the public schools.
Like this doesn’t happen in private schools?
That teacher should get prison time in a cell with Big Bubba who hasn’t been with a woman for 25 years.
“Cuzetto said the teacher displayed ‘inappropriate classroom management,’ but the district decided against firing the teacher because of his ‘body of work’ over an 18-year teaching career in the district.”
...words fail me. Except for one thing. He should be behind bars.
I note that this happened in Washington State, one of the bastions of liberalism.
I hope this kid’s parents sue this bassturd and the school system out of existence.
The money quote:
“Following viewings of the video, Rosi, a 14-year-veteran of the school was suspended for 10 days without pay, given training and then eventually moved to another school.”
A personal friend’s boy was sexually abused by a teacher that had been moved from school to school for this behavior and ended up at his school, ready to choose a new victim.
The teacher is not the problem. The officials that simply “moved him to another school” are the problem. They need to suffer dearly by losing all right to work within the public school system EVER again. Him too.
If that was MY kid.....coach would be gettin’ a serious ass whuppin’. Period.
Oh it probably does but in private schools they don’t have a teachers union to protect them.
Why, do you have an article about that?
This is why we have school shootings. Wow these people are the suicidal ones if you ask me
A couple of million in restitution should be enough to penetrate the cement heads that run this school.
As for the p**ck who thinks he’s teacher, well, I like the Big Bubba comment.
i had a feeling it was a wrestling coach...any chance it could have just been to toughen the kid up...i’ll watch the video and decide...
but back in high school i remember the my wrestling coach being militant at times to toughen us up...it never bothered me
Instead they won’t fire him because he has tenure.
Thank you to the teachers’ unions, which work so hard to make sure our kids are taught well and really learn.
I take what i said back...this happened in the classroom! i can understand if its practice but in class!
dude needs a month in jail at least
Gig Harbor is an upper middle class area. The schools are horrible. They don't teach the children well, my kid was always coming home with some kind of global warming project, they just replaced the idiotic math they were teaching the kids back to the basics, and bullying is common.
And notice the article appears in a foreign newspaper. WUWT?
He got 10 days suspension without pay. That’s pretty good for a public school system. No need to ruin a teachers life. But the student did have to get pulled out of school as he didn’t feel safe there.
You do realize schools are there to pay teachers...not to teach children, right?
the education industry likes to pretend that they are the leaders of embracing diversity and love...for muslims, and homosexuals, and anyone with one drop of minority blood....yet in reality, when they get the chance, they are are biggest perverted haters in the country....
I live in the area and I haven’t heard anything about this. Once again, if you want the news, you have to look at the foreign press.
the coach attacked the little kid in a classroom, not a gym, and in front of taunting students after the kid had already been humiliated......this guy belongs in prison, now...
The 3rd-grade teacher at the public school I graduated from was found to be fondling little girls. The school board privately agreed to give him a recommendation at another school if he would leave ours without a fuss.
He was my 2 sisters’ HS track coach (I was in 8th grade at the time) and it was creepy going to the State Meet with him.
It happened to my kid in a private, Christian school! Has taken years for him to “fit” in again....
Note to yourself: Get your kid the hell out of public screwels!
“If that was MY kid.....coach would be gettin a serious ass whuppin. Period”
I normally don’t consider myself a violence-prone person - but I do agree with you. I’d have beaten the coach something fierce.
“Caught on film by fellow students the alleged bullying by Rosi...”
So the “alleged bullying” was “caught in film”. I think it would be safe for the writer to delete the word “alleged” in this case. How stupidly PC do people have to be?
Having taught in a Lutheran school, I know that bullying happens everywhere. Usually at private schools I think it’s more mental/emotional bullying than physical. A lot of times what the teachers/administrators tolerate depends on the pressure they think they’ll get from parents if they resist. If the parents themselves are bullies/manipulators they can in effect bully the teachers/administrators by threatening to pull their kid out of school or turn the other parents against those involved, if a standard of behavior is actually upheld.
At one school where I taught, I expected the students to do the required reading and take a quiz on the basic content before we discussed in class. The kids ganged up to not do the reading, knowing that their parents would say that since all the kids were having problems it must be the teacher who is the problem. And indeed the parents did exactly that - led by a mom who worked for the superintendent of the public school in town.
She said that kids will be kids but the teacher is the adult who is supposed to make everything turn out OK.
The teacher who taught the same kids a different subject (social studies) told me that he had the kids read the book during class; that’s all they did. And then they took a standardized test (intended to be taken in one sitting, closed-book), open book, over the course of 2 days, and he scaled the grades. That’s the only way he could make everything appear to be OK so the parents wouldn’t give trouble.
When the issue is bullying, sometimes one whole family is the victim of PARENTS bullying.
I’m sorry to hear what you suffered, and please tell your child that there are probably people in the school who are still hurting right along with him/her over what happened.
Hi dragonblustar! Saw your post on FB and liked it up! Have you looked into WAVA? Washington Virtual Academy? Think my 14 year old is going to start it 2nd semester this year. Have a great day!
Thanks Shawna! I’ll have to look into that.
As a person who was bullied in school, I have to admit that something was a bit off about this video.
This kid made no effort to get out of the room? And all of his actions just...just looked like he was playing along almost.
If he was screaming to get them to stop, It almost sounded half-heated. When they were drawing on his feet, he wasn’t even kicking or moving. And the “fight” between him and the “teacher” almost looked like some mock brawl. I sure as hell would have gotten away from these people rather than try to fight a teacher that size.
Maybe I’m totally off, but this video just didnt come off like I thought from reading the story.
kids need ot be able to fight back like we used to and sack the crap out of anone doungthis,.
This anti bulling law was done by the left and by the queers to help future queers andgrlie boys to say they like feces poking.
Fight back, have a fight after school etc like it used to be and may of these mouthy little turds will not do this crap
Thakfully my oldest 14 is a boxer and all the kdis know this and they know he won the state champsionship a few years ago thus his repeutation follows him and if he had been there then this would nto have heppened even with the teacher there as my kids know to speak up
oh I know damn well this happenes in private school to.
My oldest has two friends who go to a school where they learn nothing, they see and tell me about what goes on tere eevryday when they come over.
Seems this woman in charge of this private so called Christian school is black and only rings in black kids for the most part, infact only a handful of kids are white.
She gets te Gov to pay their tuition, pockets a cap load of money for herself and she is not held accountable to anyone.
ids just play, do no work, mess about and they kids go home and tell teir parent that they like the school the teacher is nice.
LAST WEEK THEY LEARNED HOW TO DO AN AFRICAN DANCE, THAT WAS ALL THEY DID ALL WEEK.
No matter what school kids go to the parents have to be on top of their kids eevry da and question teir kids.
do you like your teacher
cos they are strict, they give us a lot of work
Well good that is my teacher
Do you like your teacher and school
cos we can talk, mess about , the teacher never shouts at us etc
I’ve found most parents liberal or conservative never sit down with their kids anymore and talk about each teacher and what they did that day.
this is why I have asked so manytimes if there are any rich conservatives out there who can set up a news channel.
We never hear much of this, the homostapo and their thuggery which goes on eevry day, how the left infiltrates places like the church etc.
Yesterday there was a thread about the biased media and there was e-mail adresses and phone call numbers asking us to calla nd send mail calling these media outlets out.
Only a handful of folks even bothered to do anything, seems some logging on here and moaning about the state of the country is alright but they don;t want to do much else to correct the media by sending mail every day or calling
oh lets not kid ourselves, this happens ar private too.
Two kids near me are best friends wiht my oldest and every day these kids come home and tell me aout it and how the school is.
It is a joke, the privae school is a money maker for the principle there, . She goes out and recruits kids in the black areas who cannot afford to go, she uses the Govt payments to get these kids to the school and all day they learn nothing.
Beacon of hope Christian day school it is called.
One week all they learned was an African dance.
I asked these kids as well have you learned about the constitution, Algebra etc and they had no idea what I was talking about, they are 14 years old and been there all their lives.
This school is a scam where the principle is raking a ton of money in and not being held accoutable
I’m sorry to hear that the public schools are so bad there. I think the main problem is that localities have lost control of their schools. When I was young, I think that people took an interest in their local schools. Now, it’s all controlled by the Department of Education, the teachers’ unions, and university academics.
If this was my kid, I’d have this low life charged with child molestation. On second thought, I’d just have to beat the crap out of him.
No, it doesn’t! No Teacher could pull this is a private school and get off with a 10 day suspension! If any teacher in a private school was shown to allow, let alone ENGAGE in the bavhior this guy did, they’d be summarily fired!
Bullying happens everywhere, but no way a teacher in any private school in america would still have their job if they behaved like this moron. Not only would the teacher be gone, but at least some of the students would likely no longer be at the school either.
In Washington state, teachers are “TENURED” after just 2 years... This is a glowing example of how teachers unions inspire excellence and responsiblity /SARCASM
Unions that PROTECT this sort of jackass are the problem! I guarantee if they had fired him as they should have, they woudl wind up spending huge dollars in a lawsuit brough by this idiots union.
Public Employees should not be allowed to be unionized PERIOD.. you are a public servant, you don’t like that, find another job.
the poor kid is probably undiagnosed with Aspergers. My kid has a mild form of Aspergers and this TOTALLY pisses me off!
There are very few men left in western Washington. The women are all dykes and the so-called “males” are mostly queers, from all available evidence.
What’s sick is that the teacher didn’t get fired, he got suspended. If you were to do that to a kid, you’d go to jail but since its a public school teacher with union protection, he gets a slap on the wrist.
I am homeschooling, but as a working single mom, it’s FRUSTRATING!
How in the world do you schedule it all in with three kids? Luckily it’s virtual school, but to have to go over all the assignments is making me crazy. Heck, I am not only BACK in school myself (to relearn it, to make sure it’s right), I’m in three grades!
If this guy has a great record other than this, my response is, “oh well. There are lots of people looking for teacher jobs.”
And lest we forget, Lance Armstrong had a squeaky clean drug record, until the testimony of an overwhelming number of witnesses showed that he was just expert at gaming the system.
So, was this teacher really all that hot? The video suggests he was not if he was not even aware of the psychological damage being done to the boy.
I always know a homeschooled kid at Wal Mart. They behave while in line to check out.
All I can do from here is send out some emails and make some ‘pretty’ graphics :p
Based on my own experiences, this guy is just the typical sadist that passes for a junior high school gym “teacher”.
it is something though. thanks
