The Smoking Gun

Two Texas elementary school teachers are under criminal investigation for disciplining a six-year-old “bully” by making the boy’s fellow kindergarten students strike him in a gauntlet as an educator instructed the children to “hit him” and “hit him harder,” police allege.
When informed of the incident last month at Salinas Elementary School, the boy’s father told cops, “No child deserved this treatment.” Referring to the female teachers, he added, “They ordered a code red on my son!”
According to a police report, one teacher sought a colleague’s help in disciplining the boy, who “was a bully in her classroom.” The teacher brought the boy, Aiden Neely, into the second teacher’s classroom, where the students were directed to “teach him why bullying is bad.”
