At a conference recently, Senator Ted Cruz said that “Universities Are Trying Hard To Raise A Generation Of Pansies.” Well, they’re not the only ones. Some parents are doing a bang up job of it two. But this time it sounds like the pansy isn’t the kid, but the Mom. And what goes hand in glove with pansydom? That’s right – litigation.
from WXYZ in Michigan:
Canton 10-year-old charged with assault following schoolyard injury
The soon-to-be fifth grader is charged with Aggravated Assault, following a schoolyard game gone wrong.
“These kids are basically playing a game we all have played,” Lindley told 7 Action News.
According to a police report, another student was struck in the face with a ball. That student’s mother asked that we not use her or her son’s name, but told 7 Action News he has a medical condition that makes head injuries especially dangerous.
The police report filed after the incident stated Lindley intentionally threw the ball at the boy’s face.
“He sustained facial issue damage to his face. He had a black eye and a bruised nose,” the other parent said.
Medical records showed the then-fourth grader also suffered a concussion.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Cameishi Lindley regarding the charge.
Her son was also suspended from school for one day. She feels it should have ended there.
“This is a kid that was playing on the playground with his friends,” she says,
“I tried not to let it get to this point,” the other boy’s mother told 7 Action News.
