where is this high school?
i was so disgusted watching that video.
he was squaring up on that older wolf like he was his age.
well mr. riley got arrested for child abuse charges,
but not without a ton of support via “the daily mail”:
A GoFundMe page has raised more than $33,000 in two days in support of a high school music teacher who was arrested after being caught on video punching a 14-year-old student in band class.
Marston Riley, 64, was arrested on Friday on child abuse charges following the violent altercation with his student at Maywood Academy High School in California.
The confrontation escalated after Riley told the teenager to leave the classroom because he was not wearing his proper band uniform.
The student refused to leave and was filmed challenging his black teacher to fight, calling him the N-word and throwing a basketball at him.
Riley then asked the teen to leave again before repeatedly punching him in the face.
Several students have come out in support of their music teacher following his arrest, saying the student had provoked Riley and that he had been viciously attacked by a group of students before.
Scores of people have been defending Riley on social media and the GoFundMe page set up by his former colleague had raised more than $33,000 on Monday morning.
‘Mr Riley doesn’t deserve this. It’s sad seeing our generation fall apart due to the immaturity and stupidity young students are exemplifying. Our teacher deserved RESPECT, not insults. He deserves to be DEFENDED, not plastered in such a negative way,’ one student tweeted.
Another student told KTLA that the high was set up just to provoke Riley.
‘Everything was planned out. There were students there who were already taking out their phones to record the incident. I don’t think it’s completely fair that they’re just putting the blame all on (Riley), when I personally know that he’s a good guy,’ the student said.
Another teen described Riley as being kind and said he had a good relationship with his students.
‘I had this teacher before and I had no problem with him. He was a really nice teacher, I always respected him. He always had a really good relationship with every student,’ one student said.
Students said Riley was involved in an incident last year during which he was attacked by three teenagers when he caught them ditching class.
Some have said the teacher was thrown to the ground before being kicked and punched repeatedly by the three students. A parent initially told news outlets that Riley was the one who started that incident by punching one of the students.
Students were organizing to wear all black to school on Monday as they used to the hashtag #justiceforriley.
it’s now at 57 thousand.
i’m sure celebs might get involved too.
this is why it pays to have a solid reputation.
when shit like this goes down,
folks will vouch for your innocence.
this poor teacher seems like he has dealt with a lot.
i’m glad he is getting support.
he doesn’t wake up every day to deal with shit like that.
i pray for nothing but blessings going forward for mr. riley.
i hope theyconvict that student and gets sued.
i call to the board for immediate banishment.
if i was mr. riley,
i’d take that money and retire.
lowkey: did they find the students social media?
he needs to be publicly shamed.
