Teacher Caught on Tape Bullying Student. Is a Camera a Kid's Only Advocate?

 

Nobody believed Julio Artuz, a 15 year old New Jersey special education student, when he complained of being bullied by his teacher. So he caught the whole thing on tape. In footage captured in secret on his cellphone, Artuz is subjected to curses and berating from a man who's supposed to be a mentor.

Artuz's teacher says: "I will kick your [expletive] from here to kingdom come until I'm 80 years old."

"Don't threaten me," responds Artuz.

"What are you going to do? You gonna get a chopper and chop me?" asks his teacher as the rest of the class sits rubbernecking the heated argument.

 

 

It better get better: Gay teens bullied by teachers, courts

 

Bullying from peers isn't the only problem gay teens face. A new study by Yale University traced homophobic behavior to authority figures.

 

"Our analysis found that, consistently, gay and bisexual youth were at a greater risk of being punished by school and criminal-justice authorities than their straight peers who exhibited the same behaviors," said study leader Kathryn Himmelstein according to U.S. News and World Report.

Lest people think bullying is a "gay thing" (and it is an LGBT issue) - teachers caught on tape bullying special needs child NBC and bullying leads to 10 year old girl's suicide news-gazette  Kids would call her fat, ugly, a slut.

Okay, Gaytheist, now you've done it!  I read that "did I read that right" business and my jaw just HIT THE FLOOR!  I'll be the rest of the day getting it back in my mouth!

I bet you are still sweet.  Probably sensitive too.  :-)

I had to put up with it too. I was a sweet and sensitive kid in many ways. I couldn't walk through a field without picking flowers for my mother. But somehow I never really internalized the bullying. I don't recall (though I could certainly be wrong) that bullies ever made me cry. Instead, I think I just developed avoidance behaviors, and became a loner. The benefit to that was that I learned to be independent in thought and action. Well, maybe not entirely independent. We are influenced by others, after all. But what I mean is that I was not driven by a strong desire to fit in and be accepted.

Thanks for the post Dallas. I used to cry before school everyday - the best revenge is living well Sentient.
