Paddles Don't Hurt Children: Dumb Bullies With Paddles Hurt Children

Among the cases cited in the report was that of a 6-year-old, first-grade boy with autism, who was paddled at his Mississippi elementary school. An assistant principal who the report described as weighing 300 pounds “picked up an inch-thick paddle and paddled him” on the buttocks, the report said.

*Editorial comment: I grew up in Mississippi. I do not suffer from autism, but I remember that 300 pound assistant principal (or his exact equivalent). He was a thick-headed power-mongering coward who enjoyed hitting children with a paddle. This is a profoundly obvious instance of a crying need for consistent regulation, which means a federal law. --TRH*
