The times, they are a changing. A teacher at New York’s John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy beat a 16 year old student at the school so bad that the student needed to get stitches at a local high school, according to DNAinfo.
Teacher Kevin Pope, 48, also allegedly threatened to have the student’s mother raped “every day after work” during the beating. What, pray tell spurred the savage asswhooping? Dope money.
According to reports and police sources the 16 year old was supposed to sell a pound of weed to Pope and they agreed on $4K for the pound of his sweetest chiba, but when the time came to settle up, the youngster demanded $7,000. This was after Pope had already given the student four grand and refused to return it.
Pope allegedly approached the teen on the street and the fisticuffs began, in view of a witness and surveillance camera. Police said the teacher also walked off with the student’s phone, wallet, and chain.
Pope now faces charges of assault, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and robbery. I seriously feel bad for the student, but $7,000 for a pound of weed? That’s criminal in and of itself.
