Queens teacher suing city claiming he was beaten up by a first-grader
A hulking Queens gym teacher and former college football player claims a pupil fractured his ankle, injured his knee and forced him to go to a shrink for stress — even though the kid was only 50 pounds and in first grade.I have a really hard time believing that a twenty-something, former athlete hurt his knee so severely that he's had to be out of work for six months now as a result of a six year old. I really do. My niece is the same age and size as Carpio, and she has attacked me full on without injury - and I've got 14 years and 40 fewer pounds than Webster. Given that he went out on sick leave because of "his physical and emotional state" - I suspect there's more to this story.
Burly, 220-pound PS 330 teacher John Webster, 27, said a 4-foot-2 Rodrigo Carpio, 6, also kicked and pinched the Elmhurst school’s principal, a security officer and another teacher during a rampage in April.
Or, maybe upstate NY football players aren't as tough as they seem...
That is all.
