    Edit: Woops just realized that this is from days ago. Sorry.
    What sorry? Please do take this thread in any other direction.

    Well.. I guess to continue the discussion of teacher discipline techniques, at my last job we had strict rules regarding discipline, which includes no embarrassing or humiliating students as punishments.

    So during interviews I would ask teachers how they would discipline students in x or y situations, I remember one teacher saying she would discipline students the way they did back home and in my mind I'm all like "oh wow you're done x_X".

    and normally i wouldn't. but it seems like his sarcastic line (that was directed at either me or smoker-san) got misinterpreted as an actual hate insult.
    but hey i don't want to get banned, so stop me admins whenever you want.

    Taggerung was banned so he can fully focus on his future job as Bernie's VP.

    Taggerung was banned not for any one post, but for having accumulated multiple infractions, and for bitching about his fourth thread ban, publicly, on his sig, and in private, annoying the staff repeatedly with these complaints, and being generally awful.

    It's only a temp ban at the moment, but it may go permanent later if he doesn't learn his lesson.

    And the girl has been charged with felony assault & drug possession.

    Sure, this guy was another huge bigot, and his sign is all kinds of fucked up, and people had every damn right to be furious with him,
    but was outright assaulting him really worth the jail time and ruined youth?
    Though I understand that in an emotionally charged situation, it's sometimes "consequences be damned, he needs a fucking smack".

    Though there's also always the chance that resorting to violence and aggression will give bigots more belief in what they're saying.

    A guy i worked with once told me that back in Bolivia, when he was growing up in like the 70's, if two kids had a quarrel in class they both got to go up to the teachers desk. Then they grabbed each other's belt and got to smack the other across the face, one turn each, until one of them yielded. I'm 70% sure he's bullshitting, but on the off chance that he isn't, that's my contender for worst punishment method of the year award.

    I actually remember in my first grade class my teacher letting a girl punch a boy that was bothering her in the stomach.....didn't understand the sense of such a punishment at the time but the boy took it look a champ.

    Funny thing though is that bigots themselves are super more likely to resort to violence and aggression. If these Trump rallies haven't made that painfully clear and sad enough.

    he's been quoted on camera saying that he 'expects to be attacked'. Maybe the lawyers can do something with that?

    I don't think Arizona accepts verbal provocation as a reasonable excuse for battery. Hard to say if it'd work anyway; I'm pretty sure that provocation is one of those legal defenses that is easier to use if you actually killed somebody rather than just injuring them.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    There being a million witnesses there isn't much he can do to twist the truth about what went on, but the plain fact of the matter is she DID attack him. On the head. With what sounds like a metal bat if what I heard was indeed a metallic clang. She's also 19 so she'll be tried as an adult, but other than that I don't know what Arizona's assault laws are, so we'll just have to see.

    Well saying "you deserve to be raped" could be considered a kind of threat, no? I'm just wondering if she was or if she knew somebody who was. Obviously she's gonna get punished but I'm just wondering if her lawyers will be able to get her off easy.

    That sounds like "I wrestle bears part-time." but if it is true, holy shit.

    Hot damn o.o

    Yeah, even though corporal punishment was and is still common, honestly starting a cycle of violence from a young age isn't worth it and can be more damaging to a child than first thought. Talking things out is a more healthy and effective way of dealing with issues.

    That sounds like a.. trial by combat?!

    I studied in a private school run by a Catholic church. There was a priest who was also the chairman of the school. He used to carry a thin bamboo cane which was well oiled and sun-dried to serve its purpose. He walks around the classrooms and if any of the kids are made to stand outside as punishment, he whacks them by the stick flat on the back of their legs thrice. I still remember one kid peeing his pants after the 2nd swing. Absolutely brutal!
