the incident was a clear "abuse of power"
yeah because the pupil in this case showed clear signs of respecting her authority and letting her slap land

retarded lawyer, the only power she abused was the power of hand-eye-coordination

Case against Sans Souci teacher who slapped pupil should be struck off court roll - lawyer

A criminal court is not the right forum to judge Sans Souci Girls' High School teacher Clarissa Venter for slapping a pupil, her defence attorney said outside the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Lawyer William Booth maintained that the common assault case should be struck off the court roll, which had "enough cases of a serious nature", after the State requested a postponement to complete its investigation.

The request for a final postponement was granted and Venter will be back in the dock on June 14.

The teacher also faces an Equality Court matter for which Booth believed there were no grounds.
Ah, she's speshul!

Hmm, one slap? Hopefully they award the teacher two more. If you want to be equal, so be it.
Teacher:
1 slap

Learner:
1 Accuses teacher of swearing at her,
2 shoves desk against teacher's legs,
3 shoulders teacher

Sans Souci teacher in slap video cleared of charges

Cape Town - The National Prosecuting Authority has dropped the common assault charge against the Sans Souci Girls’ High Grade 9 teacher, Clarissa Venter, who slapped a pupil during a classroom altercation.

The incident was captured on video in February and went viral.

Prosecutors announced their decision in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Friday, following months of postponements and representations by Venter’s attorney, William Booth.

“The chief prosecutor withdrew the common assault charge on the merits,” said Booth. “That means they have dropped charges based on the evidence and what led to the incident. That had to be taken into account. She was provoked and attacked and acted lawfully.

"IF THIS HAPPENED WITH A WHITE ON BLACK ATTACK, THINGS WOULD BE VERY DIFFERENT" said the forum in a loud declaration
What's your point?

Sitting here 24 hours without power people like you disgust me at this point. People like you contributed to the current mess. Stop looking for excuses for criminals.

Stop acting like everything is only your problem, we all go thru this ****, black and white. This "mess" wouldn't have happened if people treated each other as equals from the get go

No - it was feels ...
“He went a little too far,” Ebony Carter said. “I feel like some of them teachers need to be, you know, trained.”
I feel it she feels it unfair. She's allowed to jump a smaller girl but not a bigger person her to restrain her.

Um...the teacher and pupil are obviously not equals. How can a little snot based brat who has not had much life experience be an equal to a person who has an undergraduate degree and a teaching diploma and is an adult with responsibilities?
