A 14-yea-old student has been charged by the police of Gamagouri in Aichi. The claim is for physical attack and the consequential harm. The charges are raised by his school teacher after the attack happened on Monday, October 1, 2012 around 12:30 p.m.
According to the official statement, the issue behind this attack was that the teacher, after having told the student that reading manga in class was not allowed, has confiscated the said item. What followed could hardly be called reasonable – 12 hits with one of her own ballpoint pens in both her shoulders, resulting in not as much physical but emotional harm. The teacher is still declining to get back to working with this class.
Personally, I believe that there is something wrong with people who think they can attack with a ballpoint pen. Being 14 does not make you strong enough to hit as hard as to pass through the vastest human muscle (the back) and some of the hardest and flattest of bones – the scapulae. On the other hand, trying to kill your teacher because of what the reason was – you humans are odd.
