Florida Elementary School Principal Caught on Video Paddling 6-Year-Old Student in Front of the Kid’s Mother

The Clewiston Police Department along with the Department of Children and Families are now investigating Central Elementary School Principal Melissa Carter and faculty clerk Cecilia Self for paddling the student a month as punishment for allegedly damaging a computer screen, local CBS affiliate WINK News documented.
The corporal punishment had been performed in front of the youngster’s mother, who employed her mobile phone to surreptitiously record the paddling into a clip which went viral across the weekend.
According to the report, a female worker from the college contacted the youngster’s mother–whose name has not yet been reported to guard the individuality of her small daughteron April 13 to inform her that her kid had ruined a computer and she’d be charged $50. Throughout the phone, the school worker brought up the topic of”paddling,” however, the kid’s mother, a Spanish speaker, did not fully comprehend what that supposed as a result of language barrier. She then went into the college to cover the $50 charge but was instead taken to Primary Carter’s office where her daughter and self were waiting.
The youngster’s mother told WINK that she began to get nervous when she realized there were no cameras or police officers in the principal’s office. That’s if she shot out her own phone, hiding it within her purse, and began recording what was happening.
The movie reveals Carter and self-evident on both sides of the kid who had been facing the opposite direction with her hands on a desk. Carter is holding what appears to be a wooden paddle while Self physically positions the kid for the impending flogging.
“Eventually you know what is happening,” Self says as she grabs the crying kid by the hips. “Put out your butt.”
Self then steps away and Carter awakens into and whacks the kid hard on the buttocks. The kid shouts in pain and pulls out of the bent-over position but one of those women screams,”put your hands down” The clearly terrified and crying kid admits and says,”Okay. Okay,” placing her hands back on the desk. Carter then strikes her two more times.
“The hatred with which she hit on my daughter, I suggest it was a love affair that, actually I have never hit my daughter like she hit her,” the mother said in a meeting with WINK, adding that she had,”never hit” her kid before.
Asked why she didn’t intercede and prevent the mates, the mom said she had been afraid what would happen as a result.
“If I had done it with my own hand, it would’ve been bad for me. I really don’t know, I’d be in jail,” she told the socket, imagining that without detectors in the office she would not be able to prove any of her promises.
“I sacrificed my kid, so all the parents could realize what is happening in the college,” she advised WINK.
The family’s lawyer, Brent Probinsky, told WINK that the movie clearly depicts”aggravated battery”
“They are using a weapon which could cause severe physical, injury,” he explained. “The youngster is scared, and she feels vulnerable. There’s nothing she could do in the hands of those adults, who treated her brutally, savagely, sadistically,”
