Teacher Arrested After Slapping Student

Christian Kirk  April 10, 2016

This video, posted to Twitter by an Ozen High School student shows teacher, Mary Hastings losing it on a student. Hastings is captured on a cell phone video  slapping a student repeatedly. The video apparently captured only a portion of the incident, with Hastings screaming “Because you’re stopping them from graduating idiot-ass,” while unloading multiple open-handed  blows on the student’s head. The student, smiling (likely from embarrassment) turns to Hastings and asks “Why you did that?”

Hastings was arrested and posted a $2500 bond. The video is posted below, what do you think? Should she have been arrested? Is this the same as the other assaults of students we’ve seen  captured on video or should she be given a break?
