John Webster, a 5’10, 220 pound teacher in Queens, recently filed a notice of his intent to sue the city because of mental and physical injuries he suffered at the hands of a 1st grade student. Rodrigo Carpio, described as the “tiny terror” by Webster’s attorney, is 6 years old and weighs in at 63 pounds and 4 foot 3 inches.

Webster claims Billy Bad Ass karate kicked him in the knee and ankle as he was trying to escort him to the principal’s office. Once they finally reached the office, the tiny terror also attacked the acting principal and safety officer. “It’s sort of like an angel-devil sort of thing,” said the 5-foot-10 Webster, who recently filed a notice of his intent to sue the city and says he must now wear braces on his right ankle and knee. “[Rodrigo] looks like an angel, but then, all of a sudden, that halo turns into horns. It’s been a nightmare. It’s embarrassing. It’s humiliating.” Webster now has to wear braces on his right knee and ankle.

But of course the bad seed’s parent’s sees things differently. His father, Jorge, stated, “The lawsuit is totally absurd. How could my little boy do so much damage? My poor son.” The boy’s mom added, “This is a terrible thing to say [about] a child.”

Webster’s doctor placed him on medical leave for several months, after the incident. But the Department of Education told him to go back to work as of last month. Webster’s attorney said school officials were warned about the first grader, but failed to do anything. “It’s sad that teachers like Mr. Webster are not offered protection from someone who can endanger other teachers and students.”

All jokes aside, apparently this kid has issues. Rodrigo’s mom said her son is now on medication so he can focus. “He is getting help, and he is much better now,” she said.

If I was the teacher, I wouldn’t want to interact with him either, especially since he’s had a history already at the age of 6. What the mother fails to realize is that her ‘poor’ son, terrorized adults and the people who are there to provide him an education. Her child is not the victim in this situation. But like she said, hopefully he’s getting the help he needs.

    Bless the teacher for exercising self control because Lord knows how I would react in the situation. And to think when I was younger, I wanted to become a teacher and dedicate my services to the youth – but I have figured out another way instead by becoming a mentor. A lot of children these days are not being raised by their parents, rather they are being raised by media, pop culture. Of course it is a shame. Some parents are not taking responsibility. Rather instead of being a parent, they choosee to become a child’s friend or something similar. Let me tell you something, I got my behind torn up during Pre K when I disrespected the teacher in front of the class, third grade in front of the class (I was a little deviant back then hehehehe) and in sixth grade when my dad gave me sage advice, “If I have to come back to this school one more time, you are GOING to WISH WE WOULD send you to my country. Because after I am done with you, you will be speaking 3 languages: JESUS, LORD HAVE MERCY and BON DIEU.” Me being the rebel I was, I decided my dad was not “about that life” as these kids say these days. Let’s just say, I met the Lord soon enough and MY WAYS were CHANGED.

    Gender and size have nothing to do with it. Some parents raise little monsters and they know it. Teachers are professionals who are expected to deal with physical violence without the training or the pay. I feel bad for the man and all the other teachers who have to deal with this.

    I sincerely hope that the man wins the lawsuit. He is handling the situation correctly in this current climate.
