An eleven-year-old North Carolina student allegedly had his mouth taped shut by his sixth-grade English teacher after talking too much in class. Catherine Webster received a text from her son Brady in February saying 'I don't know what to do' with an image of himself with layers of blue painter's tape stuck to his mouth during class at Smithfield Middle School, Johnston County. Horrified by the image of her son who she described to be a 'chatterbox' who has a 'tendency to clown around', Catherine posted the shocking image to Facebook to bring to light her son's story and his interaction with Dawn Felix who she refers to as 'Mrs. Felix'

Parents, do your duty. Protect your child. Take her teaching license and sue for assault. Make it so when you walk in that school, the staff pees themselves.

My second-grade teacher scotch-taped the mouth of a female classmate who was a chatterbox. Everyone, including the girl, thought it was humorous--and effective. Of course, that was 60 years ago.

Back in my day, yes I'm old, we didn't dare talk nonstop in class. The nuns lectured you and scared you and if Mom found out, well it wasn't pretty.

This reminds me of my best friend that hasn’t stopped talking for the sixty years I’ve known him. In grade school back then the teachers surrounded his desk with bookshelves which basically gave him his own little office. Now he is an English teacher.

Big deal! When I was young in the L.A. public school district, my experience in homeroom upon entering junior high was that our 7th grade homeroom teacher (a math teacher) made tardy students come to the front of the class and bend over while he administered a swat with a custom-made paddle. This public humiliation quickly established an attitude of behavioral compliance. To my knowledge, we were not permanently scarred by this experience. Instead, we learned that we were not the biggest fish in the sea.

Give him what I got whenever I was caught talking. My little fireplug of a female English teacher would take me into the hall, tell me to bend over, grab my ankles, then swat me about 3-5 times with her, "board of education." Something about walking back into the classroom with watery eyes that encourages a more "silent self" going forward.

I remember one teacher taping two student's mouths shut in front of the entire class and make them stand there. They managed to loosen their tape and started making faces. That was around 8th grade. I also remember a third-grade teacher putting a piece of tape on every student's desk as a warning of what will happen to them if they talked in class.

I am all about teachers treating students respectfully. But, let me tell you a bit of how this situation most likely developed. Student will not listen. Most likely he has the "I have more rights than anyone - and IEP." Of course, he has been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD based on a questionnaire his mother filled out. With this in hand, she makes sure he knows he ADD/ADHD and "he can't help it." Oh, and odds are he lives with his single mother/grandmother/aunt/foster parent. He is argumentative and disrespectful. He has been asked time and again over the entire school year. He has been counseled, had discipline notices written, parent phone calls, in-school suspension, endless behavior modifications. Most likely, his classmates are sick and tired of it as well. He has been to the principal's office and been sent back to the room to continue his disruption. This behavior has been going on since school started back in August. It has been relentless. The teacher is most likely physically and mentally sickened every time he/she sees the clock advancing towards that class period. They have called in for several sick days. They have discussed the situation with their colleagues for help and suggestions. Everyone has their breaking point. Her better choice would have been to simply resign. Of course, that isn't the choice she made and she will pay the price. Public schools are not hell holes because of Leftists. They are hell holes because Leftists realize that there are so many broken kids there, and that makes those halls and classrooms happy hunting grounds for the communists, anarchists, and alphabet people, and groomers. Trust me, you know who the kids are that have a parent or parents. The child in this article is the result of an egg and sperm donor getting together and making something that neither want the responsibility for. There are tens of millions of them.

Unfortunately, this is not a new thing, teachers bullying kids who have lots of personality. I could tell tales about a couple of the teachers my brothers and I experienced back in the 60's. That teacher needs to be permanently barred from any teaching position anywhere in this country. Mom needs to crack down on this boy though and make him understand that the classroom isn't the place for disrupting the teacher. His behavior is for the playground, not the classroom.

Blue painters tape is not sticky. Its designed to mask windows and things without pulling paint off woodwork. This is a big fat nothingburger. He probably WAS talking too much. I had a teacher who reminded me I was talking too much by tugging her ear ala Carol Burnett. That worked too, as long as I was paying attention to her.

A chatterbox isn't necessarily antisocial or nasty. Boys generally have a more difficult time in school than girls. So give the boy a chore to keep him busy. Give him a class roster and let him make a check mark next to every student who raises their hand to speak. Give him a stopwatch and let him time and record and chart the number of seconds/minutes he can wait between talking. Let the other students explain to him why they don't like it when he talks. Give him a specific role to play in a class discussion (for example, identify as many examples of poetic elements in a story). Etc. Etc. Often these boys will not miss a beat, following along with the lesson while they express their frustration with sitting still by chattering (or staying busy with a less disruptive chore). There is no need to humiliate a child by taping the mouth. Even a chatterbox can have a sensitive soul. Ramona (the Pest)

I'm on the teacher's side on this one. Leftists with their evil influence have so convoluted truth and what is good and right, you have to hear the whole story and think critically about what you hear to come to a right conclusion. We used to automatically discern and know these things.

MOSCOW— Two cosmonauts and an astronaut who were supposed to leave the International Space Station this month will be brought back to Earth in late September, doubling their time aboard the orbiting laboratory to more than a year, Russia’s space agency announced Friday. The return of Russians Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin, and NASA’s Frank Rubio was delayed after the Soyuz capsule they planned to ride in developed a coolant leak while docked to the space station. An empty Soyuz was sent to the station in late February to serve as a rescue capsule. The three-person replacement crew that was originally scheduled to be aboard that capsule is now set to

BEIRUT— A strike Thursday by a suspected Iranian-made drone killed a U.S. contractor and wounded six other Americans in northeast Syria, and U.S. forces retaliated with airstrikes on sites in Syria used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, the Pentagon said. Activists said the U.S. bombing killed at least four people. On Friday night, two Syrian opposition activist groups reported a new wave of airstrikes on eastern Syria that hit positions of Iran-backed militias after rockets were fired at a Conoco gas plant that has a base housing American troops. It was not immediately clear if U.S. warplanes carried out the attack. While it’s not the first time

An air defense system that protected a U.S. coalition base in Syria was “not fully operational” when a suspected Iranian drone hit the base on Thursday, killing a U.S. contractor and wounding six Americans. Why the system struggled or if it would have made a difference in the drone strike if it had been working properly is unknown. U.S. officials are investigating the matter, military officials told The New York Times. Other defense systems at the U.S. base near Hasakah, Syria, were functioning normally but did not stop the attack.

New polling suggests that a majority of Americans believe a looming indictment of former President Donald Trump from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will backfire and either not hurt him or actually help him in his quest to retake the White House. The results of the poll, conducted by Convention of States Action in conjunction with the Trafalgar Group, were obtained by Breitbart News exclusively ahead of their public release. These results appear to be the first polling numbers conducted fully after Trump announced last weekend that he expected to be charged imminently, and show the solid majorities of Americans believe the indictment will not hurt Trump at all.

Both men are extremely popular in the Mountaineer State, but given its deeply red constituency, Justice would be a formidable opponent for Manchin, who served as governor before moving to the Senate in 2010.

Oil companies have come under increasing legal scrutiny and face allegations of defrauding investors, racketeering, and a wave of other lawsuits. But a new paper argues there’s another way to hold big oil accountable for climate damage: trying companies for homicide. The striking and seemingly radical legal theory is laid out in a paper accepted for publication in the Harvard Environmental Law Review. In it, the authors argue fossil fuel companies “have not simply been lying to the public, they have been killing members of the public at an accelerating rate, and prosecutors should bring that crime to the public’s attention”.
