NYC teacher arrested for allegedly choking 12-yr-old student; Twitter’s reaction is surprising

A New York City teacher identified as 45-year-old Chester Hingle was reportedly arrested on Thursday after he allegedly put his hands on a young student’s neck and attempted to choke him, and social media had quite a puzzling response to the story.

While the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident remain unclear, the student in question was identified as a 12-year-old. The teacher is said to have approached the student in the school cafeteria before placing his hands around the student’s neck.

The middle-aged man is being charged with criminal obstruction of breathing and endangering the welfare of a child, as reported by the New York Post, which also said that the student did not require a visit to the hospital after the alleged attack.

Despite the obvious tack of being sympathetic to the student, which is how most people would reach in such a situation, Twitter’s response was a bit more shocking.

Many people responded with empathy for the teacher and implied that somehow the child did something to deserve allegedly being strangled: (** Graphic Language)
