Florida teacher arrested for stomping on 5-year-old for not ‘seeing Jesus’

A longtime teacher at an Orlando Christian day school has been taken into custody and charged with child abuse for allegedly stomping on a 5-year-old under her care because he failed to “speak with Jesus” during a time-out for acting up.

According to the Miami Herald, Kingsway Christian Academy teacher Diane Williams has been charged with child abuse and released from Orange County Jail on $1,000 bond after being taken into custody last week.

The arrest report notes that another teacher at Kingsway noticed a bruise on the foot of the 5-year-old and asked what happened, only to be told that he had been sent by Williams to go “sit on the bench and talk to Jesus,” in an isolated “private prayer room” for misbehaving. He explained that he never saw Jesus, which infuriated Williams.

“When [Williams] entered the room a few minutes later, the teacher stomped on the student’s foot, leaving a bruise,” the arrest affidavit stated.

According to police, surveillance video taken at the school “completely” corroborated the student’s version of the stomping incident.

In a statement to parents, Kingsway Christian Academy officials said Williams has been let go while also praising her years of service to the school, saying: “We love our children. They are precious to us and precious to God. Mrs. Williams is an amazing teacher and loved by her hundreds of students from over the years, their parents and grandparents.”

The report notes that Williams is also under investigation by the Department of Children and Families.

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."

Over the weekend, Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on a rant against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (R-MN), claiming that she poses a danger to America and is the reason U.S. immigration laws should be changed.

Writing in The Intercept, columnist Peter Maas points out that while it's important to call out Carlson's racism, journalists shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the real culprits are the Murdoch family, which funds the xenophobia and racism of Fox News.

Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) -- whom Trump told to "go back" to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens -- were racist.

"Not at all," the president replied.
