“I said, ‘Thank you,’ after she got done,” Blackmon told the station. “I went to hug her, then she just snatched me up by the arm and drug me to the other teacher and said that I needed to be written up, and that something serious had happened.Blackmon’s parents have filed a police report against the teacher and the school after a mark was left on the boy’s arm from where the teacher grabbed him.

All from a kid's natural desire to show gratitude. Good grief. Isn't NC the same state where the government food police stole a kid's lunch because it was not "approved"?

Oh, but we did have that subversive book in class - the Bible. And we prayed before lunch. At least we don't have that problem today, right?
