The 14-year-old is said to have run amok in the foyer of an Oldham school when one teacher asked him to remove a stick of gum from his mouth.I was never 'asked' such things in school. I was told...!
It is understood the youngster refused and a scuffle ensued, with more staff getting involved to try to restrain the teenager.Never mind the police. Maybe teachers should be given taser..?
In all, seven members of staff were injured in the drama, during which a chair was thrown.Necessitating police intervention, who came down with the full force of the law on the miscrea...
A police source said the youngster became ‘emotional’ after being told off over the use of gum.W...T....A....F?!?
Time to put it down! No way this brat will ever become a contributing member of society. And the parent/s.
The consequences of never having been told NO in his short life…………..
Necessitating police intervention, who came down with the full force of the law on the miscrea... Oh
Actually it seems they did:
Officers from Greater Manchester Police were called to the school and arrested a boy of 14.
He was interviewed and later charged with seven counts of assault and one of criminal damage.
A spokesman for GMP said: “A boy has been charged with attacking his school teachers.
“He is due to appear at court on Friday, June 20.”
(What the courts will do to him is another thing, but you can't fault the police in this case.)
Ooop, it happened:
After being handed a nine-month referral order and ordered to pay £430 in compensation
A 'referral order' is apparently a direction to a board to come up with a 'contract' by which the offender must make reparations. It's therefore impossible to tell from this how harsh the sentence is (it may involve hard community service, it may be a slap on the wrist, it's up to the board)
I wonder in the pre-87 days, how long would it have taken this little bastard to have been caned. I also wonder if it would have had any effect on his behaviour, probably yes.
I was only caned once, by an old master whose bark was worse than his bite.
That was in 2nd Form - I made damned sure it never happened again. Because of my upstanding character, I avoided a few that would have really hurt.
Still, how do you rusticate a pupil in Oldham - send him back to Kabul?
In the words of Pamela Stephenson in a famous episode of Not The Nine O'Clock News, "Cut their goolies off, it's the only thing they'll understand".
"The consequences of never having been told NO in his short life……"
"Actually it seems they did..."
Oh, I've not quarrel with the arrest, just the mealy-mouthed PC statement after the fact!
