A 14-year-old boy was punched in the face by his 64-year-old teacher after the young man hurled racial slurs and various other profanities at the teacher.

The incident occurred during Marston Riley’s  music class at Maywood Academy High School in Southeast Los Angeles and was recorded on cell phones by other students in the class.

According to KTLA, students said Riley had asked the boy to leave the class because he wasn’t wearing the correct uniform. The boy reputedly refused to leave the class, and that’s when it got ugly.

Videotape shows the boy throw a basketball at Riley, prompting him to pull out his cellphone to ask for help. The boy allegedly continued to hurl profanity and the “n-word’ at Riley, who then punched him.

According to The Daily Mail, the verbal back and forth went like this:

Student: You got me f***ed up n****, you got me f***ed up, bro. Why you say you’re gonna beat my a**? Wassup?”

Teacher: “I won’t, I won’t.”

Student: “Why your voice cracking, my n****? Yeah walk the f*** back … why you shaking bro?”

KTLA reported, “The ensuing brawl lasts about 30 seconds, with the pair clambering across the room as Riley repeatedly delivers blows and others in the classroom shriek. The boy is only able to deliver about one punch. The video shows Riley continued to aggressively pursue the student even after other school officials responded to break up the fight. The footage ends as the student is being pulled from the room by campus staff.”

CNN noted, “The boy wound up on the ground wrapping his arms around Riley’s leg. Riley, at this point, repeatedly punches him.”

The students who were interviewed by local media outlet KTLA took the teacher’s side, saying their classmate simply pushed the man too far. One student stated, “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.”

Another student said they had the same teacher the previous year and had no issues with him, noting he typically had great relationships with other students.

Another video from a parent showed Riley in an altercation with another student over a year ago. Riley has been charged with child abuse. His arraignment is scheduled for November 30.

The Los Angeles Unified School District released a statement: “We are extremely disturbed by the reports of the events that occurred at Maywood Academy High School. We take this matter very seriously and do not condone violence or intolerance of any kind. Los Angeles Unified is cooperating with law enforcement in investigating this incident. Crisis counselors and additional School Police patrols will be at the school on Monday to support our students and staff.”

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
