A black California school teacher fought for his life in defense against a hostile student that verbally harassed him. The argument was caught on video as the teacher (Mr. Marston Riley, 64) tried to maintain his cool, but hit his breaking point after being repeatedly called “Nigger”.
‘Mr Riley doesn’t deserve this. It’s sad seeing our generation fall apart due to the immaturity and stupidity young students are exemplifying. Our teacher deserved RESPECT, not insults. He deserves to be DEFENDED, not plastered in such a negative way,’ one student tweeted.
One student told KTLA:
‘Everything was planned out. There were students there who were already taking out their phones to record the incident. I don’t think it’s completely fair that they’re just putting the blame all on (Riley), when I personally know that he’s a good guy,’ the student said.
The fight was put online via social media. Mr. Riley Marston was arrested on Friday on child abuse charges following the violent altercation with his student at Maywood Academy High School in California.
