A Sunday school teacher who lost his patience and “nudged” a child for talking during prayer is now being investigated for assault and battery, reported Enterprise News.

Onyedikachi Enebechi, 37, is a Bible study teacher at Winners City Church Brockton, Massachusetts.

Vernon Ford Jr. told police that Enebechi slapped his five-year-old son leaving him with a red bruise on his face.

“I just want justice,” Vernon said. “If he was just talking during prayer and he’s that angry that he has to smack my child, this guy has problems.”

Enebechi said the child was talking so he “nudged the child with two fingers out of frustration.”

Vernon said that it is unacceptable.

“Even if we go with the teacher’s story that he nudged him, he has no business doing that,” Vernon said. “He has no business putting his hands on my son. Period.”

Enebechi did not respond to reporters’ request for comments and will appear in Brockton District Court.

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.

"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.

She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.

Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle. He seemed to be referring to a series of complaints that have been raised over the years about various consumer product regulations (a favorite topic of Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky) but without making a coherent point about any of them.
