Are teens lacking RESPECT? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

January 28, 2015 by The ReadyWriter


“Conversations Of A Sistah” is back with a vengeance and ready to tackle a serious subject and conversation at hand; are teenagers lacking respect and reverence for those in authority? Where is the RESPECT that follows an elder in position?

My topic comes as a disturbing video surfaced online of a ninth grade Paterson, New Jersey student who attacked his teacher in the classroom for confiscating his cell phone during class. The attack which was captured on video shown above, has gone viral on Facebook and youtube and shows the student slamming his 62 year old teacher to the floor in an effort to retrieve his cell phone back. The 23-second video shows the 16-year-old with his arms wrapped around the teacher, knocking him into an empty desk.

The district filed a complaint against the student earlier this week, a spokes­woman said, and Paterson police said they arrested him at his home on Friday.

He said the teacher apparently confiscated the phone — which belonged to the assailant — from another student. The principal said students are allowed to use cellphones in class for academic purposes, but staff may take the devices and return them at the end of the day if students use them for other reasons.

Many questions have been raised since this incident such as; who are the boys parents? Why is a lack of disrespect evident in the teens behavior? And should the parents be held accountable?

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio.com for this much needed discussion.

        Not for nothing but…what were the other students suppose to do? They all looked like they were shocked for one and someone video taped it. But other than getting security if there were/is any in the school what else could the students have done? Grabbing the boy off the teacher might’ve made the matter worse. IMO they remained calmed and someone mentioned security at the end.

      1st of all, the teacher didn’t steal the boys phone. He was obviously using it in class and the teacher retrieved it until after class::
      “The principal said students are allowed to use cellphones in class for academic purposes, but staff may take the devices and return them at the end of the day if students use them for other reasons.”
      And how was the teacher going to call security if the boy had him in a body lock? Please READ THE POST and watch the video b4 posting comments that’s gonna piss us off!
