  • Landmark Supreme Court Case
  • You know, I was reading about this case were a kid got corporal punishment. It wasn't a very nice story maybe you shouldn't slap you stuffed animals for being mean to Dino.
  • Alright! Be nice to Dino everybody. Or you'll get slapped!
  • I shouldn't really be telling you this but it starts like this;A fourteen year old kid named James Ingraham was accused of being rowdy in the school auditorium and was taken to the principal office. In the office the punishment for his action was five swats but when Ingraham knew his punishment he said he didn’t do anything wrong and refused to be punished. After that the principal held him down and gave him twenty swats instead of the five. Although, corporal punishment was permitted in the school. Ingraham had bruises that kept him out of school for ten days and he had to loom for medical help.Soon his mother sued the school and other school appointee because she declared the punishment was violating the Eighth Amendment.
  • Oh! Can I know more? What even is corporal punishment?
  • The ruling was; When this was taken to court the “Supreme Court ruled against James.” The said that the Constitution was used to protect criminals and not misbehaving school children. But they did tell teachers and principals to be cautious when deciding if the child was going to acquire corporal punishment or not. The Justices also proposed that they examine the child’s attitude, behavior now and their past behavior and age and medical condition of the child.
  • You know I didn't understand a word you said. You still didn't even answer my question.
  • Alright! Bye! No thanks to your lesson! I'm still slapping any of my toys who are mean to him
  • And overall the impact was: The Court still was upon the query whether or not to authorize corporal punishment in states and regional districts. Now twenty-two states have corporal punishment and twenty-eight of the states disallowed the punishment to occur.
  • Alright I'm done. I'm not wasting my education on you.
