For some this may be hard to watch. This teacher in Japan slaps this student about 14 times in 16 seconds. Man one of those sounded really hard. The kid just stands there and takes it. Action like these would not be tolerated here, I would hope. The assistant principle of the school said the same teacher beat another kid that day as well.

“Don’t joke around, kid! Do you understand? You’re stupid,” the teacher is heard yelling in the video as he repeatedly slaps the student’s face, according to Agence France-Presse.

According to the school, the teacher has admitted to the abuse, saying: “I wanted to shake him up, but I went about it the wrong way.”
