The NY Daily News exaggerates a surveillance video showing a teacher restraining a troubled 15-year-old boy in a New York school.

Using misleading language describing security dean Steven Hudson’s actions as a “severe beating,” the newspaper showed the video to student Kristoff John’s mom.

The troubled 15-year-old was restrained at Technical Education High School in Brooklyn.

“Oh my god!” she gasped when she saw Kristoff John being restrained during the March 6 incident at school. “No! No! No!”

“They lied to me!” the betrayed mom said tearfully when The News showed her the clip for the first time. “No one wants to see their son taken advantage of and beaten like this.”

After uniformed police arrive on the scene Kristoff continues to fight them as he is restrained.

“I was fearing for my life,” he said. “I was surprised he hit me. I didn’t have time to think,” said Kristoff.

In fact the boy is the aggressor. But you can’t tell that by reading the Daily News article.

At no time did the 300 lb Hudson punch or hit the boy. He did what was necessary to restrain a student who made aggressive gestures toward school staff.

The incident began when Kristoff attempted to swipe his security card but it failed to work. He pushed his way into the school and he was grabbed by Hudson when he refused to swipe his security card again.

The teacher, Hudson, refused to talk to The News when confronted at the school’s graduation and again at his Jersey City home.

The school’s principal, Janine Kieran, also did not respond to several requests for comment.

Kristoff was sent to live with relatives in his native Grenada.

    I couldn’t have that job. Yall know these kids walk around already like they’re gonna whoop yo ass when you haven’t said anything to them. He did his ass right. I dont have to watch the video. I know so many educators who have similar or exact stories as this one. As with these type situations, how it all started isn’t caught, only the reaction from the teacher. **** that. he did right. what reason would a teacher have to restrain you? what, cuz u didn’t bring ur homework?

    please.

  • YSoSrs

    Right, I mean he was swinging him all around, that was unnecessary with his big ass!

    I was waiting too. I’m like “oh yea, they all up in that other post… bring it on!!!” :dance:

    I go to the bathroom and BAM! :(

  • Gigi26

    NOPE NOPE NOPE.

    Once the boy swung at dude he had all rights to subdue him by any means possible.

    I went to school in NYC and if your ID didn’t work chances are you were in some sort of trouble. Not all but most of the time.

    FOH with this, the kid is a menace and should be handled as such. Cuz if he was in Grenada, they would handle him much worse.

  • KayCeiSoul

    :popcorn: Looks to me like Grimace tucked that boy under that top bun and tried to suffocate him. He was waddling around with that boy tucked in that bun like a hotdog. :popcorn:

    I think the adults may have mishandled him. Just my opinion. The boy still didn’t appear to be threatening. He appeared to be trying to breathe.

    @Choco-girl, I am over here sweating bullets. I been here for almost 8 years. We have a new company taking over, we went to the orientation on the 21st and we were offered positions to stay with the new company. My co-worker just tells me a few minutes ago that they sent her a letter letting her know her services would not be needed… :wail: by the grace of GOD, she had interviewed for another company, was offered the job but was going to keep this one because they don’t offer benefits, that was a blessing in disguise…

    Question: Anybody here ever collect unemployment? Is it comparable to your work salary?

  • Ms. Everything

    Regardless of the reason or cause behind it, no mother worth her salt is going to be able to watch video of her child in a fight with someone bigger then the child and be able to express anything other than shock, fear and eventually rage. It’s apart of our maternal instincts

    And the media has been manipulating people since the beginning of time but generally it was in the amount of reporting on certain stories vs obviously biased reporting and leaving out facts. Gone are the days when journalists exercised restraint and only reported the facts as they saw them. The best things my journalism professor ever taught me, fact-checking, spell check is for the lazy and opinions are for editorials and your personal life :shrugs: I think they stopped teaching that

    @Bootcamp Unemployment is typically 45% of your current yearly salary; howver, it depends ont he stae you reside in.

    @Bootcamp: :yes: I collected unemployment, it is comparable based off how long you’ve been working there and your current salary. You get a certain percentage of that. Just pray that it would not be your portion hun. Seriously, your situation is not hers!

    Columbine doesn’t have ID cards you have to swipe. Students have to wear their ID’s on a lanyard around their neck and present it upon demand by any staff, but no metal detectors or ID swipes…

    You’re right Bibi, I went to school in Jamaica Queens and you know the school had beefs with other nearby schools so the kids would jump some students. I think the level of security varied based on the school safety level and where it was located. But I think for the most part every student in NYC had to scan in their IDs…hell we even had random bookbag/body scanning days 😆

    U had to scan ur id then walk through a metal detector, put ur bag through the machine for xray (like the airport) if the detector went off they took u to table and manually scanned you. If u rang again u were escorted into a room for a strip search…and I went to school in lower manhattan…

    Similar incident happened at my cousin’s school in Jamaica. He is a teacher and one his collegues grabbed a student’ arm that was trying to cut infront of the lunchline. The student resisted and started fighting the teacher, other teachers including my cousin joined in on restraining the child. They were finally able to control him after a couple of mins. Later in the day the kid took scissors and stabbed the teacher that initially grabbed him in the chest and neck. :( If a child needs that many adults to subdue him, then he is a danger to other children and should not be in that school period. Interesting that they sent his bad ass back to Grenada…

    _______________________________________________________
    :cosign: I don’t believe he went overboard. The child tried to do what he wanted to do and he was stopped. He clearly has control issues because it took a GROUP of adults to get him under control in the end. Nobody hit him, they only restrained him. I see this all the time in my profession and kids are extremely aggressive now to the point where they now have a new label for them: ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) which I believe is a bunch of crap. Kids have been given way too much power and adults are being bullied by children, especially in school. We have had students threaten to blow up the building, bring a gun and kill everybody, get their gang to come attack us after school, etc., etc., etc. The public just doesn’t understand what goes on in schools across the country and we are demonized when we (the staff) try to defend ourselves. Parents need to be held accountable for what they are NOT doing at home and maybe then we will see some change.
