High school student pepper sprays teacher after cell phone was taken away

Democrats’ laser focus on pushing queer theory and gender transitioning in our schools serves as an effective distraction from the realities of public education today.

The Associated Press reported in Oct. 2022 that math scores saw their largest decreases ever and reading scores dropped to 1992 levels, attributing the setback to the pandemic. But it’s hard to argue that the proper learning environment is in place when schools have literally become battlefields where even the teachers are not safe.

The latest example of this happened Friday in Tennessee, where an entitled high school student pepper-sprayed a teacher for confiscating her smartphone. A video of the encounter that took place at Antioch High School, which falls under Metro Nashville Public Schools, was making the rounds on social media.

The male teacher is seen running from the classroom after the female student apparently pepper sprayed him in the face. She calmly follows the teacher outside of the classroom and sprayed him a second time when he failed to heed her demand to return her phone. Undeterred by the teacher’s distress or any consequences for her actions — this being a pattern in public schools — the student attempts to take her phone away from the teacher.

Caution: Violent Content:

“Can I get my phone?” the student asks another adult who entered the picture. “Can I get my phone? Can I get my phone? I need my phone!”

The video was shared by a Reddit user, @Lazy_Mouse3803, who said the teacher took the phone because the student was “texting and Googling answers for her school work.”

According to the social media user, the same teacher was punched in the face a couple of months ago after taking another student’s phone — he had reportedly caught the student cheating on a test.

The following footage is purportedly of that assault:

The school district told Fox17 the incident “represents a serious violation of law and our school policies, and the student involved has received appropriate disciplinary consequences.”

Turns out, violence over cell phones is more common than people may expect:
