Florida kindergarten teacher busted for abusing 5-year-old boy after mom puts recorder in his backpack

Published

on

Kandy Escotto, noticed her 5-year-old son, Aaron was being bullied by his kindergarten teacher, so she took matters into her own hands.

While doing his homework, Aaron would often refer to himself as a “bad boy.”

“I said, ‘Why do you say something like that?’ ” Escotto said. “He said, ‘That’s what the teacher tells me when I don’t do my work.'”

Escotto said this was unusual behavior for her son, and complained to Banyan Elementary’s school principal Cheri Davis about his kindergarten teacher Rosalba Suarez.

Suarez, a teacher for 33 years was a recipient of the teacher of the year award. Despite this,  Escotto knew she wasn’t treating her son fairly. Davis told her she needed proof that the teacher was bullying her son before any action could be taken.

So, Escotto got proof. She sent her son to school with a hidden camera over a four day period and got 32 hours of audio.

The audio files reveals that Suarez called the young boy a “loser,” and made fun of him for not being able to bubble on a test correctly.

“For me to hear the things that she was saying to him,” Escotto told the Miami Herald. “She picked him out, she singled him out, she humiliated him in front of the whole class. She talked about me in front of him. No 5-year-old should be able to go through that. That affected my family, affected him.”

“It was very upsetting being that I myself heard what was being said to a little boy,” Escotto said.

She set up a meeting with Davis and Suarez, but they failed to take any action to correct the situation. After hiring an attorney, the school switched Aaron to a different classroom. Escotto said it’s unclear if she will take further legal action.

Davis, did not respond to a request for comment and Suarez hung up on a reporter when asked to comment.

Spokeswoman Jackie Calzadilla for Miami-Dade County school district released this statement: “We work diligently to ensure the well-being of every child entrusted to our care. Any action that runs contrary to the values we instill in our school community will not be tolerated. The district will conduct a thorough review of this matter and, if the allegations are substantiated, we will take any and all appropriate disciplinary actions.”

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.

Published

On Tuesday, in the wake of testimony from several witnesses in the impeachment hearing that broadly implicated EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland in improper backchannel foreign policy, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali suggested that Sondland is in "tremendous trouble" — and that no testimony he could give tomorrow will get him out of this mess:

No. He will be trying to save himself. The perjury plus multiple stellar witnesses paint a damning portrait. He's in tremendous trouble. https://t.co/CxN5w0EErb

Even the Republican witnesses make Donald Trump look like a depraved criminal

Published

on

The second half of Tuesday's hearing offered something new in the Donald Trump impeachment inquiry: Witnesses called by the Republican minority on the House Intelligence Committee. It's understandable why Republicans would want these two men.

One of them was Tim Morrison, a former National Security Council aide who is among the few people directly exposed to Trump's famous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who claims to believe there was nothing wrong with it. The other was Kurt Volker, a former special envoy to Ukraine, who appears to have been a major actor in Trump's extortion scheme in that country. Indeed, Volker was deemed one of the "three amigos" — along with Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Trump donor/EU ambassador Gordon Sondland — who Trump entrusted with Ukrainian relations as he exerted increasing pressure on the country's leaders to give into his extortion scheme.
