Teacher suspended for spraying special ed student in face with mace

EAG: FORREST CITY, Ark. – An Arkansas high school teacher is expected to face multiple criminal charges for allegedly spraying a special education student in the face with mace in a video recorded incident in the school cafeteria.

Keresia Jones, a 53-year-old special education teacher at Forrest City High School, was allegedly caught on camera following a male student around the cafeteria “yelling at him to settle down and get his tray” during lunch Monday, according to a police report cited by News Channel 3.

The school resource officer was in the cafeteria and witnessed the incident.

“The report said the student appeared agitated but followed her instructions and put the tray on the cafeteria table,” the news site reports. “Then the report stated the student started walking toward Jones and she yelled at him to stop. Before the officer could act, Jones reportedly sprayed the student’s face with mace.”

Forrest City Police are seeking charges of third-degree battery, possession of tear gas-pepper spray and terroristic threatening, all misdemeanors.  read more

  1. What on earth was this woman doing in that job? I know several special ed teachers who are very good at their jobs and good with special needs children, as they SHOULD be. I hope ones like her are few and far between.

  2. Since when is terroristic threatening just a misdemeanor?

    That shithole city has a larger percentage of black criminals than West Memphis, another shithole, 35 miles to the NE.

    Forrest city was named after the founder of the KKK. Now it’s majority black and very anti-white.

  3. OT. I just thought of something , … , why aren’t the leftists demanding that Forrest City change its name? Is it because no white people are stupid enough to live there and, therefore, there is nobody to offend with the demand?
    Nathan B. Forrest. Is that name not worth a crate of Confederate flags?

  4. I live about 15 miles north of the Arkansas frontier, and a lot of people have really stupid names that sound negro but aren’t.

    I guess hillbillies, like the negroes, think a stupid name sets em apart.
