That’ll Learn ‘Em!

A teacher struck a 12-year-old and is now charged with child abuse and battery at the Putnam Academy of Arts and Sciences, according to the Palatka Police Department.

At 4:20 p.m. Monday, authorities responded  to a residence on Belmont Drive regarding a battery. The victim’s mother said Bellamy struck her child during the school day. Police said the woman had been shown a video of her son and Bellamy playing basketball. The video showed Bellamy throwing the ball at her son and later elbowing him in the mouth, which knocked the child’s tooth out.

The child told officers that Bellamy had gotten angry at him because Bellamy believed he had intentionally struck his arm or head while they were playing, police said. Bellamy is listed as “Athletics Director/Physical Education” on the school’s website.

The child told officers Bellamy called him back out onto the court and then threw the ball at him, but he was able to duck and not get hit by it. The child said he and Bellamy then started playing and then Bellamy struck him in the face with his elbow which knocked his tooth out, according to police.

I bet that kid won’t mess with him in the future! Here is Coach Bellamy….

According to Great Schools, the Putnam Academy Of Arts And Sciences is 71% White and 20% black. I would love to see the kid he struck just for the sake of curiosity. I wonder if they will even fire this guy?

    The warnings keep coming at the American People from all directions; the lack of impulse control, judgment and decency by James Bellamy is no surprise to me (give him Bonus Points if his victim was White).

    Coach Bellamy’s “pride” and “self-worth” were apparently on the line so he staged his comeback with a mini version of The Knockout Game. In this case, Knocking Out a Tooth.*

    In elementary school I had a teacher who had long painted fingernails and when you misbehaved she would grab you by the chin and dig in with those things. But I forgave her because she was hot. I didn’t think girls were icky.

    Got paddled in parachute pants once as a young know it all.
    You always remember the hard lessons.
    A Rastus pushed me into a doorway at the same school and was kicked out after I dissed his brother.
    Another one that dressed like Micheal Jackson ran through the girls locker room changing area on purpose in order to get expelled.
    This was back in the 1980’s and bussing was still going on…from the other side of Crapital City by the baseball stadium.

    Nope-the family is Black. This is just another adult who canNOT control his emotions. This imbecile felt “disrespected” and so felt justified to knock the SH** out of a kid. Why are parents still sending their children to government sanctioned jails??
