heard something from my mom who is a teacher locally that made me sick:

One of her students was attacked at lunch by another student after her student tagged the other student "out" in a game of dodgeball. The kid literally got tagged out, walked away from the game, grabbed a metal bat from one of the teachers PE closets then returned and proceeded to take BP on my mom's student's head. Once the kid was on the ground, the attacking kid decided to take a few swings at the adult that tried to break up the beating. 5-7 minutes later, with the attacker wondering around still swinging the bat, the "trained" staff showed up to smoother the kid basically and haul him off to the nurses office to try and calm him down. But of course, you know that's where they're treating my mom's student for the head injury and all sh!t breaks out in there because the attacker isn't being restricted and is free to stand or sit or in this case, basically remodel the nurses office by throwing everything and anything he can get his hands on until they smoother him again and finally restrain his arms. That was thursday. After a quick 3 day suspension with no other punishment pending, the kid returns to school and promptly searches out and continues the beating of my mom's student at first chance. Puts him in a headlock and begins twisting his head sideways in a snapping motion. Another 3 day suspension and that's it...Gotta love elementary school policys. :at-wits-end::at-wits-end:

Well, a troubled youngster would look bad on the school. I won't go into my thoughts on how that ends up in this section of the forum.

If that happened to my kid, I'd be in jail within a week.

official response was "he's under 11 and juvenile court won't intercede under 11".

ELEMENTARY?? I thought for sure that would a HS kid.

Around here, I learned that they have to go through a progression of discipline before they can really kick a kid out. "Did you try talking to his parents first? Maybe that will do it."

Alez367 that is absolutely insane. it would be difficult for me to restrain myself from taking matters in my own hands by whatever means necessary. that is assault.

they couldn't even stop the kid when he was swinging the bat because unless they were "trained" staff, no adult was allowed to touch the kid. Are you freaking kidding me!!

So they're not allowed to prevent the commission of a forcible felony?

We're doomed.

Yeah, that will change once the injured kid's family sues the school district.

So messed up.

Yeah... can’t touch kids. My wife is a kindergarten teacher and they have trained staff who are called to handle any kids that get out of control... usually kids with medical conditions. It’s an insane balance between town policies and teacher union negotiations. No one wants to be sued / and or lose their job.

Almost need to have a doom squad of other kids (preferably tough ones, or martial arts kids or something) who can try and step in in situations like this.
It's a sad state of affairs when you can't even legally stop one kid from beating the brains out of another kid.

What's probably just as crazy is the kids probably know that so don't care if adults are around when they go after another kid...

I bet it will be quick round. I love playing when it is hot like that. The humidity sometimes makes the clubs hard to grip and my eyes are stinging from sweat & sunscreen but I still like it.
