*I hope they catch this irresponsible piece of s*** and lock his ass up! A video captured an adult, said to be a parent, as he punched a 7-year-old boy in the stomach — causing the child to fall to his knees in pain — then walked out the front door of the school, rather nonchalantly, I might add.
I have no information on what preceded such an act, but as far as I’m concerned, there is no excuse for nor reason that adequately justifies, what this man did to this child!
The shocking incident happened last week at the KIPP DC Spring Academy in Washington DC. And John Mclean, the victim, told CNN affiliate WJLA that the punch to the gut was “real painful.”
A CNN report on the incident quotes the child’s mother, who we all can assume was fit to be tied say about the parent. It appears she has heard from the parent based on her words.
“You watched my son on that ground and you didn’t do nothing … and all you could say to me is you were playing,” Lena Mclean, who requested a copy of the video from the school, said.
McLean hopes the man will be arrested; something that has yet to happen.
“You don’t bully a child, you don’t torment a child. I wouldn’t do that to you. I wouldn’t do that to none of your kids,” she said. “I’ll feel much better when he is locked up.”
I know jail is not always the answer, but Ms. Mclean, I am WITH YOU on this one.
Watch the disturbing video below. What course of action do you think the school should take on this incident?
