In Como Park High School assault, I side with the teacher

Until it's proven that the teacher was out of line, he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Reader Ryan Unterberger responds to Como Park High School teacher slammed during fight with students [VIDEO]:

"Just because the teacher 'put his hands on the students' to get them out of a classroom that they shouldn't have been in doesn't mean that they should try and fight the teacher.

"For all we know, the teacher grabbed them by the arm or shirt, which, unless I'm crazy, doesn't mean that he's assaulting them or doing anything that causes them to have to fight him in "self defense."

"Until it comes out that the teacher actually did something to warrant being fought by two students, I side with the teacher."
