PIANG v. slap

Sisuahlai read this article and really wept for the school-teacher: The STAR ONLINE Form Four boy slaps teacher

Let me dissect this article:

ALOR STAR: A Form Four boy walked up to a teacher and slapped her before more than 500 students at a secondary school in Pendang, about 35km from here. Wow, the shameful incident happened in front of a school-assembly size audience. We won't be short of witnesses come court day.

Two male teachers quickly rushed to pull the 16-year-old boy away and took him to the senior assistant’s office after the 8am incident at SMK Tokai yesterday. This would never happen in my former secondary school. If it did, 500 students would immediately rush to the rescue, pull the clown away, then tie him to the goalpost, and if not for the effective Malaysian law, we might have stoned him to death also.

The teacher, in her 30s, suffered bruises on her face.

She had earlier reprimanded the boy over a disciplinary problem.

Pendang district police chief Deputy Supt Nordin Manan said the incident occurred during the school assembly. School assembly? Yup, figured that one out already.

The boy had been handed over to the police for questioning. You mean "questioning".

DSP Nordin said the boy had some disciplinary problem and had been reprimanded by teachers on numerous occasions. I won't say some disciplinary problem. This is SERIOUS disciplinary problem. Might amount to a mental health disturbance. But for the purpose of the court sentence, he is sane enough to receive the maximum punishment.

He said the teacher has lodged a police report. Naturally. Why do Star journalists always repeat themselves?
