VIDEO: Milwaukee Teacher Beaten Unconscious by Student
Video: Milwaukee Student Attacks Teacher
Milwaukee, WI – A 16-year-old student at South Division High School attacked his teacher in a violent video that has since gone viral.
The incident began in a classroom, with other students present, as a verbal confrontation. Both the student and the teacher were standing at the front of the classroom.
The student appeared aggressive in his demeanor toward the teacher from the beginning of the video, which was apparently taken by a student who was present in the class.
The video then shows the student, who was not identified, approaching the teacher, shoving him and hitting him near his mouth. The teacher, who was not identified, fell to the floor, and the student stood over the teacher, pummeling him about the head with both hands repeatedly.
The teacher never raised a hand to the student, throughout the video. He was knocked unconscious before the video ended, and was reported to have had non-life threatening injuries. Details were not released about what preceded the confrontation or what class the incident occurred in.
Milwaukee Police have arrested the student for battery charges, according to Fox 32.
A spokesman for the Milwaukee Public School system said, “MPS is cooperating with the Milwaukee Police Department to investigate a situation that occurred…at 1515 W Lapham Blvd. Due to this being an ongoing investigation, we cannot comment further.”
Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan said, “Violence at MPS is a great concern to the community. Actions like this need criminal charges to send a message, and hold the student responsible for their reckless and dangerous behavior.
“I applaud the many great teachers and students at MPS, however, there is a segment of students who choose to behave inappropriately and criminally, which robs other students and teachers of an opportunity to build a safe learning environment.”
