An Atlanta teacher has been fired after video emerged that showed him tackling a student and slamming the 17-year-old’s face against a table, reports WSTV.

The incident occurred after the 17-year-old patted teacher Henry Coleman on the shoulder and said, “What’s up?”

The teenager claims that Coleman then tackled him.

“I just felt my body, my whole body, just fly into the table with books on it. He came to the table, slung me off the table to the ground,” the teen told WSTV.

Although the teen was initially charged for touching the teacher, the school lobbied to get the charges dropped.

The teen’s parents were shocked and appalled.

“He just went crazy. I don’t understand why,” Shekela Bryant, the teen’s mother, said. “To choke, to push him on the ground by his face. It’s just too much, too much for a good morning tap.”

“It’s crazy. I just can’t get it. I don’t understand why he would attack a child like that,” Bryant said.

The video, obtained by WSTV’s Tom Jones, shows the altercation.

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
