Florida teacher arrested after placing boy in ’chokehold’

A Florida teacher has been arrested after he was captured on video violently grabbing a 14-year-old student, putting him in a ’chokehold’ and shoving him out of his classroom. The student told investigators the altercation took place after Jeffrey Paffumi, 47, repeatedly muted the music the student was playing on his computer during class, which led the boy to call him a ’cracka’ twice.

I wonder what the articles would say if the ethnicity of those involved was the reverse.

He shouldn't have lost his temper with this punk but as a fellow teacher I can sympathize with him. Everyone thinks about doing that sort of thing to certain students but you must NEVER actually do that.

if the teacher is smart he should lawyer up and fight this. first there are no criminal charges a adult and physically remove a student from their home, their business or their work. it was reasonable and harmless. ask any bouncer, theft control, or security. not being able to physically restrain or remove a student endangers staff and students. A good lawyer would be able to sue the school and get the teacher a nice severance.

Interesting. A teacher should be above that, yet all teachers have their breaking point. School is a vacation for some students who have no discipline at home. They get to screw around with friends and get free food. It is not the job of a teacher to discipline children. What he did was wrong, yet its an example of overworked teachers.

A choke hold seek really.. That's way over the top.. If teach is smart he will turn it around on the school for failing to have the right control measures on the puter the kid was using to disrupt the class... N then teach will seek help for being over stressed n under paid n unsupported by the administration .
