Teacher Caught Fighting Student On Tape — What Should Happen? [VIDEO]

On Monday, a teacher in Santa Monica was suspended for getting in a brawl with a student. The fight was captured on a students cell phone and quickly became viral. As the situation comes to light, a couple of students are being charged with a variety of things after the truth begins to unfold.

The teacher that was suspended is Mark Black, a long time teacher and wrestling coach who pinned the 18 year old to the floor. But, why did he do it?

A Facebook group set up by students of the Santa Monica School describes what happened in the situation:

Mark Black, longtime science teacher and wrestling coach at Santa Monica High School, was attacked on the morning of April 4, 2014, by a student in his science classroom. The student was in possession of Marijuana that he was attempting to sell in the classroom. As Mr. Black attempted to confiscate the drug and stop the illegal distribution, he was attacked by the student. In an attempt to protect himself and not injure the student in question, Mr. Black, a wrestling coach with over 30 years experience, placed the student in a restraint hold to stop the student from further attacking him. This was in an effort to get the situation under control until the proper authorities could be contacted.

It’s a huge controversy when a teacher puts their hands on a student. What do you think should happen?
