Science teacher shouts 'die, die, die' at 14 year-old pupil during dumbbell attack
A science teacher beat a 14-year-old pupil around the head with a 3kg dumbbell while shouting "die, die, die" after the boy swore at him during a lesson, a court heard.
When the boy picked up a Bunsen burner and told him to "f--- off", he is said to have snapped. Other pupils in Harvey's class at All Saints' Roman Catholic School in Mansfield told how he dragged the boy out of the classroom and down the corridor.........
"He threw him to the ground and armed himself with a 3kg dumbbell and began to hit the boy about the head with it," he said.
"He struck at least two blows to the head which caused serious injury, really serious injury.
"At the time the blows were being struck Mr Harvey was only heard to say one thing. What he was saying was 'die, die, die'.......He grabbed a weight and hit him on the head constantly," she (a pupil) said in a videotaped interview played to the court. "He didn't stop and blood was everywhere. Everyone was screaming and then two people went and got teachers."
Another pupil who tried to pull Harvey away from the boy said he was kneeling above him, raising the dumbbell to shoulder height for each of the blows.
Should have used a heavier weight, if you ask me, kill the horrible little fucking bastard outright. Him a science teacher, he should have known that.
One thing's for sure, this'll be a lesson in manners that sonny boy's parents neglected to give him, probably too busy loving him to bits, and he'll think twice about taking the piss in future.
It happened in my school, a whole class ganged-up on a music teacher - they're all a bit weird, anyway - did it so often that the poor bastard threw himself in the Stratford-on-Avon canal and drowned, and mine was a posh, King Edwards grammar school, with pushy, snooty professional parents, only not mine, obviously. Jesus knows what it's like in Ruin's modern comprehensives and the wonder is that the teachers don't tool themselves up and go in and massacre the little fucking monsters.
This guy should be nutted-off, cared-for, never mind put in the dock. Seems that he was just back, that day, having been off on sick mental leave, caused by these very same little darlings. Nutted off to hospital for a while and his self esteem massaged and restored and then a chunk of community service; the children and their parents got together and told that they can all do better, try harder. Fat chance.
