California Teacher and Student Tangled Up in a Fight in The Classroom Caught on Camera
A California teacher and student were tangled up in a fight in the classroom caught on camera. The story is a little shaky but it doesn't look like the teacher is in the wrong.
Mark Black, the science teacher and wrestling coach, and the unnamed student are at the center of the fight in the classroom that was caught on camera. Eye witnesses say the student openly handled a bag of marijuana and Mr. Black tried to confiscate it. The incident immediately turn physical.
According to CBS Los Angeles, the Superintendent of Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District went on record saying,
“A deeply disturbing incident involving a teacher and student occurred in a classroom at Santa Monica High School, resulting in the Santa Monica Police Department being called to the campus. A number of videos capturing at least a portion of the incident are circulating, and I can tell you that what I witnessed on one of those videos is utterly alarming."
Some residents in the community are asking for the coach to resign but parents are speaking out in support of Mr. Black. Michelle Cardell, a supportive parent, said,
“The coach has the entire community behind him. I think an investigation should be done before anyone rushes to judgment.”
Both the student and the teacher have been removed from the school until further notice. If the eye witnesses are making true statements, the student was in the wrong. We need more teacher to grow a backbone and stand up for what is right. You can't have weed in school.
