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)
Knowing NYC schools, I want to know what that student did

I guess he just couldn’t take it anymore and broke.. So close to the end of the school year..
I never hear anyone talk about helping teachers relive their stress.. Look at what so many of them have to work with, not all of them but many..

My Mom taught public HS for over 30 yrs. There were more than a few students she would have liked to choke.
