    How do you know that's not the case. Since my parenting career began, I've met some seriously sub-standard teachers.

    Let's not put teachers on too high of a pedestal.

    Well...I dont expect you to take my word for it...but you ought to try experiencing it firsthand a time or two. The cops are in a no-win situation. The most effective and NON VIOLENT (I dont know why folks cant see that) means of suppresing the kid was pepper spray. No physical contact needed...little dude went down by choice and stayed down. Cops didnt have to grab a wrist and worry about breaking arms, legs, bruising, etc. You likely know the effects of pepper spray. Other than a crappy taste in his mouth for a few weeks a snot covered face, kids fine after 20 minutes or so.

    What did the teacher do to defuse the situation, then?

    I have six kids. I'm quite sure that I can subdue an 8 y/o without pepper spray, or harming the child.

    But, didn't attempt to defuse the situation, which would have been the most effective defense of the other kids. Right?

    But not the same threat level of an older child.

    No it's not. Come on. You really believe that an 8 year old is that dangerous? You know, here in Texas, if a parent was to pepper spray a kid, he or she would be doing hard time. Why does a cop get an exception to that? There are better ways to deal with unruly kids, and pepper spray is definitely not one of them. That cop should be fired.
