Later at a news conference:
Yet another sweet innocent child being unfairly disciplined. Give me a break. From the police incident report that can be viewed here, the attempt to get in touch with the mother 6 times. “Johnson’s mother told 13WMAZ that she received calls on her cell phone but couldn’t answer because it was out of minutes.” In my day, there wouldn’t had been the need for the police to have been called, my principle and dean knew how to use a paddle. (personal experiences) But, in today’s age where every child is an angel, no matter what they do, you always have parents and groups to circle around the child and cry foul. Time to call Al Sharpton.
“They [Johnson's parents] did say that their daughter has been having nightmares since being taken from school last Friday and they plan to talk to a doctor about that.” I wonder if those nightmares may include discovering that in the real world, there are consequences to your actions, disciplining for misbehavior and punishment for crimes? I guess I can see why the parents are worried for the child if she was to actually realize that.
Just on a curios note; How many of you remember when you got in trouble at school, and got paddled, you got it worse when you got home?
