Caught on Video: Teacher Beating up Student
A video has surfaced showing 15-year-old freshman Kristoff John getting pummeled by teacher and security dean Stephan Hudson at a Brooklyn high school on March 6.
The boy’s mother Diane John was told by Hudson that a minor altercation occured and it was the teen who actually provoked and attacked him.
When the Daily News then released a video of the 300-pound teacher beating up Kristoff, the mom was shocked.
She is now seeking action against the teacher, and is even considering a lawsuit against the city.
“I’d love to hear his side of the story for real, and not some bogus lies,” she said.
The school spokeswoman Jessica Scaperotti added that the teacher and principal are both under investigation. “The chancellor was disturbed by the video footage and believed the disciplinary action given to the teacher was inadequate,” she said.
The chancellor has begun the process to fire the teacher who has been teaching in the schools since 1990.
