Mom says police tasered, arrested special needs Cumberland County student

Crossville Police Department officers arrested a Cumberland County High School student Thursday after they said he became unruly and threatened violence. WVLT News obtained a video the student’s mother claims captured the incident. She said the situation is more complicated than the report reflects.

According to the report from CPD, officers were dispatched to the school following a report of an unruly student who reportedly threatened violence and who authorities said was capable of injuring staff.

“The student would not comply with the officer’s attempts gain control of the situation stating that, ‘It would take all 5 [of them] to make an arrest.’ The student, at 6′4″ and approx. 240 lbs., had threatened violence and was fully capable of inflicting injury to staff, officers, bystanders and ultimately to the student’s own person,” the report says.

The officers tried to take the student into custody and eventually tasered him, forcing him to the ground and into handcuffs, the report reads.

Is it EVER appropriate for a teacher to tell a student to "Shut up" or call him a "little punk motherfucker"?
