13 Year Old Arrested For Burping?
I just read this article in the Huffington Post about a 13 year old that got in BIG trouble for burping in class.
It's certainly not against any law to burp.
As far as I know, your legally allowed to burp as loud as you want.
So, what really happened in Albuquerque, New Mexico?
Well, according to the article, the boy "burped audibly" in Gym class and the teacher called the school officer to complain about the boy disrupting her class.
The student was then handcuffed and taken to a juvenile detention center without anyone contacting his parents.
This is a really big deal in education right now.
How should schools handle disruptive students?
Is it okay to handcuff students for burping?
Here at Cool Like Pie, we believe this is NOT cool.
Please stop handcuffing children.
The use of handcuffs is extreme...especially for burping.
