Well, I guess in today’s society you can practically do whatever you want to a black female and get away with it. It’s reported that a Milwalkee “teacher” became so frustrated with a 7 year old student, Lamya Cannon that she took scissors and cut her braid off in front of the classroom. Apparently Lamya was absentmindedly playing in her hair during class (typical behavior for children this age). School administrator’s are characterizing this incident (I consider it assault) as the teacher simply being “stressed” out due to budget constraints.
Lamya Cammon is angry, confused, and scared by the incident last week in which the apparently frustrated teacher cut one of her braids off after she wouldn’t stop playing with them in class.
Cammon, 7, sports a few dozen braids, but one is conspicuously absent.
“She told me to stop playing with it. Then cut it off and sent me back to my desk,” Cammon said.
Cammon’s a first-grader at Congress Elementary and said her teacher used a pair of classroom scissors to cut off one of the braids after she absent-mindedly kept playing with them. Read More
So I guess stress is now an acceptable justification for assault? If the mother of this student became stressed and took scissors to the teacher’s hair, would this behavior also be characterized as simply a result of “stress” or would it be assault? Since when are teachers allowed to CUT CHILDREN”S HAIR? I’ve never read that as a disciplinary action in the schools I’ve dealt with – have you?
This teacher knowingly and willfully laid hands on this child’s person with scissors to degrade and humiliate her in class. She should be brought up on charges. People have been charged for far less than this in our society. It just depends on who the victim is.
I’m not in the mood for sympathizers – so I’m not entertaining it today. “Oh but AJ, the teachers have so much to do”. You know what? That teacher CHOSE HER PROFESSION. She knew when she took this job that she would be dealing with 7 year old children that daydream. If she can’t deal with typical behavior such as inattentiveness by a 7 year old…perhaps the heffa needs to take up arms and go fight in Iraq. Then she can get a clue as to what STRESS is.
BTW- the teacher was “punished” with a $175 fine for “Disorderly Conduct”. Yes……that’s it. She takes scissors to a child’s head and is only charged with “Disorderly Conduct”. SMDH
