Talk about a teachable moment. A 19-year-old Bellevue woman has been charged with second-degree assault after she allegedly stabbed a classmate Saturday during an anger-management class at Bellevue College. Bellevue police say Faribah Maradiaga "blew up out of control" and stabbed the classmate's arm and shoulder several times after the two women exchanged words. Police said Maradiaga, who already had a pending assault charge, told them that the other woman had threatened her first, according to charging documents.

The class didn’t work. She needs more, and I’ll wager WE will have to pay for it.

She's halfway there. She stabbed the arm and shoulder instead of the body, taking care to avoid any vital organs.

Anger management classes are a joke...its more political correctness than anything else. Like Conflict Resolution.

Before Anger Mismanagement courses...they stuck the perps in jail

I guess they did not want to take her knife away before the class... in fear that would hurt her feelings or make her angry...

Add to the collection words and phrases that piss me off such as “Diversity”, “Gay”, “Affirmative Action” and “Let me be clear”, a new one that I detest:

“A Teachable Moment”. If there were ever a more condescending phrase than that coming from those who issue it, I can’t imagine what it would be.

Especially, since there does not appear to be a "teachable moment" in this scenario.

A teachable moment is literally when a student asks an unplanned question which permits the teacher to use the question to explain the subject at hand.

This author doesn't even try to explain the lesson taught by the so-called teachable moment. She just plugged the phrase in as a substitute for "How ironic>".

That was my first thought - those damned Amish again (cough).

No doubt, part of her defense will be: "But in my country it is allowed."

My two hot buttons are;

Conflict resolution or consensus
