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.
I was thrown out of school in the early 60s for no good reason. Unfortutately, we lived on a military base, overseas, at the time. They let me back to a standing ovation. So much for being an example. I’m a CPA in West Virginia with a “Top Secret” security clearance.
My oldest son left school in the 9th grade because of the prison approach. He’s an honors student at WVU. We must punish the brightest and best.
Remember, those who can’t do teach, and, those who can’t teach, teach teachers!
Ha! My little brother, a complete stereo typical jock, ran for class treasure his senor year and his campaign speech was burping the alphabet. He won.
Actually, no one interferes with public education more than unionized teachers.
Dickie P. (RIP) was known to fart in class and turn around and blame the kid behind him. It wasn’t an everyday thing but enough to make school fun. I am laughing with tears recalling him.
Mein Gott! Good thing the kid wasn’t chewing gum. They might have executed him.
I recall letting a loud one rip in my 5th grade history class. We were learning about the golden age of Greece.
I think it set me back with the gals for a few years.
And it was the same classroom about the same time (I remember this vividly, and haven’t thought about it for decades) when the cue-ball bald PR cop came in to do his school outreach. I have no recollection what he told us us, except that he joked about waxing his shiny head.
Now, all the cops where I live are goons, kids who shave their heads and wear wraparound “badass” sunglasses.
“...and I never put Firecrackers in the Jello again”
Sounds like fun. I might have to try that.
“Go to school. Become a criminal.” It makes a great t-shirt.
Do today’s kids even know how to make rude noises with their armpits?
Call it for what it is.
Belching loudly is just pretty rude.
Most students learned about that as 2nd graders and socially were not encouraged to continue amongst valued peers.
Some never learn and find it to be a mechanism to disrupt others and the learning environment.
The school should have mechanisms by which to discipline the students, which either the parents may agree to accept or remove their children from that environment.
Unfortunately, we’ve had a liberal education establishment attempt to counterfeit both legitimate authority and the family, no longer holding children accountable as children.
I’d recommend having the Principal of the school and the student who exhibits such rude behavior, both be forced to endure one another until the situation is worked out. Let the Administration suffer the consequences of not enforcing legitimate authority at the appropriate level and let the student miss his opportunity to learn when behaves rudely.
First burps, then looks are next. As in, he gave me a bad look, arrest him.
Ditto. I'm wiping away the tears of laughter, just thinking about my elementary school days. Back then, the New Orleans public schools followed the local tradition of serving red beans and rice on Mondays. Those afternoons were often entertaining.
In fifth grade, I had a male teacher - a very rare thing in those days. He just couldn't feign the outrage over that stuff as well as the women did. There were a few moments that I recall him struggling for composure, like Harvey Korman when on camera with Tim Conway.
We had a kid in the 4th grade with the belching alphabet gift. I still remember his name :)
Yep. One of those who disrupts class day after day after day until even the other kids are asking the teacher to get him out of there. I know the type well.

You two realize that NONE of what you're saying even remotely justifies this kid getting arrested for burping, right?
It is closer to the flesh trade then anything else,you single out individuals and stigmatize them.Overtime they become more and more subordinate to the whims of those who put them there in the first place.
Horrible way to school children,especially teenagers.13 is just like 18 and in sense 21....a time when you move from one to another in your existence and your particular vulnerable to people trying to book you over.
And you realize you’re not getting the whole story, right? Right? Sheesh.
It didn't say they caught him with anything, just that they allegedly strip-searched him.
Big difference between being accused and found guilty, even though that seems lost on a lot of people at late.
Conduct a warrantless strip search on my kid at your personal peril.
This reminds me of one guy in Jr. High, just the initials of DD. We were in class one time and out of the blue, he raised his hand and teacher asked what he wanted and he asked, “can I be excused, I need to go and take a dump”. It was funny and the teacher responded that we don’t talk like that !

This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
This is an older article I stumbled on today. Seems I missed it first time around.
Someone a few weeks ago said that “Obama speaks power to truth”,
which is very apt.
Obama and the left use the force of government to supress truth telling.
I think the charge was “being a counter-revolutionary”,
since very little education goes on in government school,
but a lot of Marxist indoctrination does happen.
If he “interfered” with that, I can see why the Marxist teacher would have him arrested.
There’s an app for that.
