FULL TITLE: Teacher fired 'after she ordered six students to attack 7th grade boy who spoke back to her' in shocking videotaped beat-down
A Florida teacher was fired from her job last week after she allegedly encouraged six students to attack a classmate that spoke back to her.
Teacher Dru Dehart was fired on Thursday night from her position at Port St. Lucie's Northport K-8 school by the St. Lucie County school board, WPTV reports.
Dehart was accused last year of encouraging a March 2013 incident caught on surveillance video that showed six students attacking classmate Radravious Williams, WPBF reported last year. The attack took place after Williams allegedly told Dehart that he 'wished he could curse out teachers someday.'

” classmate ‘Radravious’ Williams”
Practicing for political office
All the students will remember from this incident was that the teacher was ‘unjustly’ fired.
Wow! So there is something a teacher can do to finally get fired from a public school (after a year!)
Radravious now reportedly suffers from trust issues, and his mother Latasha Darrisaw says Dehart has yet to apologize for what happened.
Are these people cartoon characters?
Whatever. The teacher is an idiot.
> The attack took place after Williams allegedly told Dehart that he ‘wished he could curse out teachers someday.’
Sounds like either a hair-trigger thing, or a tip of the iceberg thing. WTH was the teacher thinking? Was there so little backup in the office that this became the only option?
The six students who followed the order to attack have been movied into the accelrated Democrat stormtrooper program
All I can see for sure is that whoever sold them such a crappy video system should be beaten
Wow — a teacher gave instructions to six kids and they actually followed her instructions.
A teacher friend of mine once had a student name
I am shocked that Monique and Unique weren’t involved in this incident. LOL.
She should have been in jail immediately after the fact...anybody else would be.
Too many syllables.
The teacher made several mistakes.
1) If you’re going to set students on a troublemaker, you have to be discreet about it, and use language that can have one or more non-violent interpretations.
This goes all the way back to England’s Henry II, who it is said, remarked to no one in particular “Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?”, while referring to Thomas Becket. (In truth, it is thought he actually said “What miserable drones and traitors have I nourished and brought up in my household, who let their lord be treated with such shameful contempt by a low-born cleric?”)
In any event, the idea is the same. Plausible deniability.
2) Never gloat. In fact, she should have done the opposite, and immediately come to the bad students’ aid, offering him assistance and support. This also would give her credibility in confusing the description of the assailants, to aid in their avoidance of punishment, if they are discreet enough to not brag about it.
Teacher done got herseff a posse, essential in many publick skrools. And they obeyed her, kinda cool.
The command was within their “cultural context” -
“he dissed me, give him a 6 on one beatdown”.
Fully within culturally accepted norms.
Hahaha... Reminds me of Lemonjello and Orangejello...pronounced La-mon-ga-lo and Or-ron-ga-lo. Twin running backs.
They were probably next to another set of twins ... Male and Female.
You are quite right. I had a couple of coaches/PE teachers in junior and high school who operated this way.
There was a female basketball player on a University team by the name of Urethra Jones or something like that. The first name was Urethra, the last name was something like Jones or Johnson...
My PE teacher in Jr High would just nail you in the head with a volleyball if you cut up. And let me tell you he was a volleyball marksman, even from across the gym. Never get away with that today, but let me tell you we all respected the guy.
They were at the mall with Orangello.
Well, I certainly had no respect for the PE teachers I mentioned, for them or their designated pack of jackals.
Some adults were bullies as children, I guess, and take vicarious pleasure in subtly encouraging it as adults.
Trust issues? He looks like he has botox issues.
A teacher friend of mine once had a student name
...forgot to mention that it was spelled “SHITHEAD”. On the 1st day of school she had to ask how to say it. I’m sure if she said “shi*head” she would’ve regretted it.
I guess that's the case.
I can envision myself, just barely, as part of a group beating somebody up, if I was sufficiently outraged at him for what seemed like good reason at the time.
I absolutely, positively cannot see myself being proud later of what I'd done, much less recording it and posting it on Youtube as a brag.
Proud of what? Their ability to do a 6x or 10x beatdown? What's to be proud of?
(Shaking head in disbelief at the subculture of fellow Americans.)
Public school training brown shirts
They will become made men.
Remove the pebble from my shoe!
Dehart allegedly told the boys they should ‘teach him a lesson,’ the channel says.
‘And her remarks to him were, “I’ve got my eighth-grade boys on you; you’re not so tough now.”’
One of my favorites is “Simeon.”
How does shi’ite like that happen? “I KNOW! Let’s give him a name that sounds like a monkey!”
That is too much!
Wow, this teacher actually got fired. You don’t see that every day.
