It’s no secret that America is in the midst of a crippling crime wave. 

Even more concerning is that young people and teenagers are committing many of these crimes because they know they will face no accountability for their actions. 

But this brazen assault has teachers and parents fuming with outrage.

This assault has community leaders, law enforcement officials, and teachers demanding answers

In many parts of America, children have started committing crimes from an increasingly young age. 

A video went viral this week depicting a high school student at Parkland High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, viciously slapping his teacher across the face on multiple occasions. 

The video showed the student standing in front of the classroom and badmouthing his teacher before slapping her across the face in front of everyone. 

Shockingly, the teacher remained in her seat after the slap and said “do you think that affected me in any way?”

The angry student asked, “Do you want me to hit you again?” before slapping her a second time, this time knocking the glasses off of her face. 

He then walked out of the classroom spewing cuss words and profanity while daring the teacher to do something about it. 

Rather than intervene in this heinous assault, most of the fellow students refused to get involved, with some even laughing. 

The unnamed suspect has only been identified as a young black man.

His name has remained a secret due to his status as a minor. 

However, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has since pressed charges on the young man.

They charged him with one misdemeanor count of communicating threats and two counts of misdemeanor assault. 

Forsyth County Sheriff Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr. addressed these charges by stating that “while we all agree that this incident was deplorable and outrageous to the community, and community organizations, all of us should be outraged when those who educate us can be assaulted.”

He added that “we should hold those who teach and educate our children to the highest regard. Our hope and our prayer at the FCSO is that we recognize that we as a community must bring order not only to our community but our children. We are praying for wholeness for those students who witnessed this and the educator involved.”

Parkland High School Principal Noel Keener also noted that he plans to levy his own set of disciplinary actions in addition to these criminal charges. 

“Please know this video is not reflective of our expectations of students at Parkland High School,” he said. “We are working with district staff to address this immediately and ensure behavior like this is not tolerated in our school and district.”

Young people know that they can commit crimes and get away with it

Primarily in urban communities, children have started committing crimes at younger ages. 

In many cases, parents do not care what their children do and kids act out knowing that they will not have to face any ramifications for their criminal acts. 

As a result of the Black Lives Matter movement, many of these young people have completely lost any sense of facing accountability, instead idolizing criminals and criminal lifestyles.
