US school student arrested for 'burping audibly' in class
Washington, Dec 3 : A seventh-grader in a US school was reportedly arrested after he burped audibly during a class.
The 13-year-old from Cleveland Middle School alleges that after he burped, his teacher called the school resource officer, who in turn called the authorities to have him arrested for interfering with public education.
The student has filed a civil rights lawsuit naming his teacher, principal and a police officer.
It also claims that school authorities transported him from the school to the detention facility without notifying his parents.
They are using petty misdemeanor charges to arrest children in New Mexico, ABC News quoted the boys attorney, Shannon Kennedy, as saying.
The boys lawsuit also described an incident early last month when he was allegedly strip searched on suspicion of selling marijuana.
interfering with public education
Half the teachers should be behind bars.
My kid is in a public school for the first and perhaps the only semester ever. I loathe what they do. They have incorporated prison administration terminology for handling the students. “Lockdown”, “block”, “cell”, “detainee” and so forth. Crazy. This is allegedly an honor school and magnet school. Your government at work on you.
The kid is clearly a troublemaker, the sooner he is executed the better.
If this is what passes for Criminal Behavior in today’s Classrooms they would have executed me before I finished the 8th Grade...
So grateful that I grew up in a Free Country with Parents that knew how to Discipline (I certainly earned every whack) and I’m so very disappointed with the current crop of Govt / Union Educators.
(PS In one day I was whacked by my Teacher, the Principal and my Mother ... then “Just wait till your Father gets home” ... and I got whacked again... and I never put Firecrackers in the Jello again)
A burp! In front of the gender challenged and all. Can you imagine?
I agree. String him up by his testicles, lest he breed and raise up another child with indigestion.
Perhaps the kid was goofing off. So send the kid to the dean of boys or some such. Give him some detention if you must.
Call the police? Seriously?
I knew these folks had a god complex, but holy cow batman.
If only he would have barked instead of burped, the police could have just shot him and saved us some money.
Is this true? Arrested for burping? Jeez, and teachers having sex with students without being ARRESTED?
13 years old & selling pot....
I’m guessing they were looking for an excuse to get rid of this kid and I doubt this was the first time the little ‘angel’ has had issues at school.
Armed police stand ready to force students to attend these prison-like places, force citizens to pay for the godless and socialist indoctrination in these kiddie prisons, and to handcuff and haul to jail any student defiant enough to **burp** in the face of power! Remember, “Truth to Power”!
Don’t they ever make kids sit in the hall anymore?
I farted so loud in 5th grade it rattled the laminated desk seat. Tried to blame it on the girl behind me but got sent to the office. I survived with a few licks.
I thought anyone who read about the new NYC sex ed curriculum would do whatever they could to leave that system. I am amazed and disgusted at the lack of outrage.
Even Girls can do it ....
Try doing that now, you’d probably be shot on sight!
Really ! Wow, I wonder if farting would lead to charges of emitting toxic fumes as the next thing to do ?
It doesn't say he was caught selling pot, or that they proved he was selling pot, just "suspicion."
More zero tolerance nonsense. Somebody should have enough sense to give him detention and be done with it.
