VIDEO: Music Teacher Whoops Student Hurling Racial Slurs At Him

Student called teacher a 'ho a-s b---h' before getting pummeled by 64-year-old teacher

Maywood, CA – A 64-year-old high school teacher was arrested for pummeling a 14-year-old student who stood next to him in class and repeatedly used racial slurs and mocked the teacher (video below).

Video was captured by the other students showing what happened before the fight.

Students told KTLA that the fight started at about 1:30 p.m. Friday. KTLA reported that the students were sympathetic towards the teacher and that the 14-year-old student had taunted him and pushed him to the edge.

Music teacher Marston Riley asked the 14-year-old to leave the classroom because he wasn’t wearing a proper uniform. The student refused to leave and then challenged Riley and used profanity and used racial slurs when mocking Riley, who is black.

Then the student threw a basketball at the teacher. Riley then pulled out his cell phone to call for help.

However, the student continued to insult and provoke the teacher and the teacher didn’t react until he clocked the 14-year-old in the face.

In one video, the 14-year-old student calls the teacher a “b---h” and says, “You ain’t gonna do s—t” and added, “you a ho a-s b—ch’ before Riley threw the first punch that appeared to stun the student and had him back peddling.

The teacher’s third punch connected and the student fell down on his back. When the student got up, Riley continued with the attack and stalked the 14-year-old who was again back peddling.

The teacher corned the student against a wall with chairs and when the 14-year-old ducked and grabbed the teacher’s leg, Riley began pummeling the student in the head with what appeared to be his cell phone about a dozen times as classmates screamed and watched.

Eventually, some of the students tried to intervened and separated the two but Riley continued after the 14-year-old.

The teacher and student exchanged punches again and another student held back the 14-year-old by the door while the teacher backed off.

Eventually, some adults showed up and took control of the classroom as Riley asked the surrounding students, “Who hit me? Who hit me?” The video showed the teacher was hit by another student while on top of the 14-year-old.

The student was taken to a hospital and he was treated for moderate injuries and released, according to the Los Angeles Times. Riley was arrested and booked at a local sheriff’s station after he posted $50,000 bail, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Riley was booked on charges of suspected child abuse and causing great bodily harm on a child, according to KTLA. He is scheduled for arraignment on Nov. 30.

The investigation is being conducted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau.

The Los Angeles Unified School District said it was “extremely disturbed” by the incident, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We take this matter very seriously and do not condone violence or intolerance of any kind,” the statement read, the Los Angeles Times reported. “Los Angeles Unified is cooperating with law enforcement in investigating this incident.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that there was much public support on social media for the teacher and the student was out of line using racial slurs directed at the black teacher.

There was a GoFundMe page started for the teacher that had raised $18,000 by Sunday evening, the Los Angeles Times reported.

KNBC reported that some parents were angry over the teacher beating up a student in class. “Just the fact he’s hitting a child is not right,” one person told KNBC who was not identified and whose face was not shown.

HIS LITTLE BASTARD GOT WHAT HE HAD COMING ALWAYS RUNNING OFF AT THE FUCKING MOUTH LIKE MOST YOUNG BACK MEN. THE TEACHER DESERVED TO BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF THIS PUNK.

Tell us, what would the School District do about that young man's acts and actions? Nothing. The money is more important than anything else. Yet, we need to respect his feelings? He got all the respect he needed. And, he needs some more from where that came from.

Hey @Hi_estComnDenomn you gonna weigh in on this one? Oh right! No white people for you demonize, never mind.

Looks like self defense and discipline to me. That child shouldnt disrespect an adult like that, and he already assaulted him by throwing the ball at him. Then he followed up with combative language. From where i see it, this was self defense.

The teacher should be fired for this, but i completely understand that well deserved ass beating. People wouldn't be so comfortable popping off at the mouth if they expected they could get that ass whooped.

First of all the student that was hit wasn't black. He's some mix of either Hispanic or Asian... no matter what he is though HE NEEDED TO BE HURT WORSE THAN THAT AND WHOEVER IS "RAISING HIM" SHOULD HAVE THE SAME ASS WHOOPING! I'm very proud of the teacher! It's us as parents that it starts with! My mother's generation raised wimps and didn't instill God in my generation... and our generation is "raising" bad@$$es that don't have to mind authority! Sick!!!!!!!!!!!

Undoubtedly this kid has been coddled for years by the schools and he finally ran across someone that had had enough.

Wonder what his momma would do if he disrespected her as much as he did his teacher. Snot nosed brat deserved what he got and more. Something happened like this when I was a kid and the teacher pushed the kid out of the class and bounced his backside into lockers all the way down to the principals office. Because I was a witness (Jr. High) I was called to the principals office to state what I saw/heard and all I said was "he deserved it for what he said and punching at the teacher.) Kid was expeledl !! Kids have no boundaries and think because they're juvies they can get away with it. GREAT JOB MOM, you're a disgrace and horrible role model

Well, seeing how the kid hit him with a basketball, that is physical assault. So, teacher might not be in legal trouble but you can bet he is going to get fired, its California. Here in Texas the little punk would be taken out in the woods and given a hickory shampoo. If that didn't take, he be left for the hogs next time.

Well, after watching the video I can fully understand why the teacher hit (repeatedly) the disrespectful child. He (the child) deserved every punch and if I was his parent the beatings would continue once he got home.

That one little chicken shit that punched the teacher in the back of the head was the same one walking in front of the room with the cell phone. Probably the little asshole's buddy.

The little s#!t needs the stuffing knocked out of his foul mouth. Probably taught to talk like that by his friends as the likelihood of him having an at home father is remote. I think teach showed amazing restraint. And the buddy who sucker punched is clearly identifiable on the video. There is virtually no discipline in some public schools these days, particularly the inner cities.

Idiotic kid! I am so sick of the blatant disrespect that kids have for adults! He is such a little punk! I wish for the teacher's sake that the teacher had restraint and called for help. I hate that he will pay for this.

This teacher should be fired, sued and imprisoned. If you think this teacher is in the right, you are part of the problem in this country.

It’s time to stop letting these kids get away with such blatant disrespect of teachers. At least one punk found out that he wasn’t as tough as he thought he was, and what happens when you piss off an old person with your big mouth. Too bad the teacher is going to have to go through all the crap he will because of some disrespectful young snot, whose parents had neither the time, nor the inclination to teach the little turd respect. I blame the parents more than the kid. Some day, in the future, when he’s a crack addict, bleeding out on the street after being shot by a gang member or policeman, the mother will shed big crocodile tears, wailing that her son “was a good kid, who was funny, and everybody liked”!

There's a time and place for everything and ... everyone gets caught alone at some time or another. If I was that teacher, I would've caught that punk alone and put the fear of the devil in his punk @$$. No wits, no injuries, just some man talk in his little soft ears.

Doing it like that, the punk would know that he wouldn't have to defend his "honor" and could leave it at that without anyone knowing.

So......the teacher gets totally disrespected by this punk, retaliates, and is being charged ?? How about PARENTS start teaching their children to RESPECT OTHERS instead ? That lack of respect is the problem in this country, and people like a certain person who answered earlier is also part of the problem.

If you can not control yourself as a teacher, you shouldn’t be in a classroom. We have too much violence in our schools - teachers should be part of the solution, not the instigator.

There comes a point when a “child” has crossed the line. Getting pummeled is a good life lesson for an out of control kid. He threw a basketball at him... He insulted him, challenged him, he got up in his face. If it were my Son, I’d applaud the teachers actions and pummel the kid myself. Teachers deserve our respect and support !..

See that’s the problem with our society today no discipline! If that kid had proper training at home he never would have received a life lesson at school.

About time someone whooped his ass! Obviously his parents do not make him respect adults. If he talks to teachers like that, you know he does at home.

ok, now he will sue and win big time as im sure he was SUCH A GOOD BOY..i understand the teacher losing control..but the punk was 14 so he could have handled it differently, although this is POS THUG deserved the ass whooping..i feel bad for the teacher. glad there is a gofund me acct for him and support from his community, he is gonna need it

LeroyStanks

Sorry people, just because the kid deserved a a** whooping, teachers are not allowed to provide it. Its called assault and battery and child abuse. Teacher needs to learn restraint himself like white teachers have to. In fact, if the teacher was white and the punk was black, that teacher would not only have been fired and charged, but in CA would have been lynched for being a racist bigot and who knows what else. But since the teacher is black, he's a hero. You guys need to get your justice color-blind glasses on and use them.

Used to be that you could kick kids out of school for stuff like this. Apparently today the teacher has to take all kinds of abuse. Maybe today we need to shift over to some kind of computer teaching with students at home or wherever on their cell phones or tablets. Of course some shop classes and labs might be at the school but otherwise over the Internet. Save money and stop bullying and school shootings. Maybe have a cut off where the smart students go to classes at the school but the morons and troublemakers can sit at home learning by computer. Some of the students won't learn anything either way, at school or via computer, so just give them a "Present" grade signifying that they watched some computer classes. Good enough.

I think there needs to be some punishment outside this kids beating. He needs to not speaking to people like that.

The teacher was out of line. This stuff is not supposed to ever happen under the phalacy of political-correctness that we live in today, and the teacher is supposed to just accept the abuse and go on according to the edicts. It might have been slightly different if the kid had thrown the first punch. But then again who knows in this screwed-up world. The kid definitaly had a royal azzkicking coming. It is unfortunate that the teacher took the bait and administered it. You can only push people so far before they snap and that's likely what happened here. The thug knew how to push all the right buttons of the teacher. It's too bad for the teacher. Although the teacher was standing his ground and exerting his authority properly, he probably should have just left the room, and either completed the phone call to ask for assistance, or gone to get help to deal with the situation.

In 1979 as a young rookie cop at a big disturbance at a high school, I saw a loudmouth out-of-control student take a punch at a large male wrestling coach. What followed was not pretty, and we stopped it after the kid received a couple of punches. We figured the kid got his attitude adjusted. Nothing happened over it except the student was expelled from school. My how times have changed.....

I think the Teacher just set some needed ground rules. Born to teen Moms with out Dad's om many cases, all races, kids don't have much hope of Education. McDonald's is always hiring . Good thing. A&W to Airforce, Good Career move, for me.

The the teacher was constrained not to retaliate. It is a sad situation that the student will probably not be punished and the teacher will lose his position because a Thug provoked his to his limit.

If more teachers beat the shit out of these kids we might save this generation from itself. But unfortunately the Progressives have screwed these kids for the foreseeable future.

Little bottom feeding wannabe got his punk ass handed to him. Maybe if his parent(s) had disciplined him at home this POS wouldnt have gotten himself tuned up at school. Punk got what he deserved. Teacher had NO Resource Officer to back him up and no assistance with this feral POS. If I was the teacher (and the Union) Id file suit on LAUSD. If youre going to raise animals expect them to get treated as such.

This student should at the very least be suspended. Is this a school where the students rights are so protected that other students & teachers are endangered? I'm thinking the teacher had taken all he could. Referring to this 14 year old as a child is a joke. Sounds like a punk.

The teacher should not have been fired, hopefully he files a Lawsuit and wins. He should also file for Worker's Compensation. This Student/Future Inmates parents should be sued for Criminal Damages by their son and also PROHIBITED FROM GETTING ANY PUBLIC ASSISTANCE!
