<quoted text>Yes, it is assault to curse someone! I agree 100% and there are some there that are expertly trained in it! Get em on youtube, they deserve it!
No it's not assault idiot. Assault is physically touching someone. The academy is a good thing, and will be around for a while. You guys that are making all this bullcrap up need a good swift kick. I would like for every damn one of you to come to their graduation on December 22, and then you can see the change in the kids, and then follow the ones that go back to school and get their high school diploma. IT WORKS!!!!!

It's called Verbal Assault. You should learn about it in case your students press charges in the near future.
Assuming that you were in law inforcement or military as most that have posted on here claim to be, we as civilians would think that you were taught this when in training, but so many of you in this area assault citizens by cursing at them horribly, of course they are going to say it's not assault to curse at those whom you are arresting or questioning, BUT IT IS for a fact an ASSAULT to do so.

Read and learn for yourself:
This is one that officers use quite a bit to add charges. In the US system there are two crimes that many time go hand in had; Assault & Battery. Many people use these terms interchangeably and nothing could be further from the truth.

Legally; cursing at someone and calling them profanity is actually assault.
Legally; striking someone with a fist, foot or foreign object is actually battery.

Though very few people including the police will not charge someone just with assault it actually could be done. Also, depending on the state there are different ways to deal with it.

__________

The crime of assault occurs when someone physically strikes another person or attempts to strike them. But it can also mean any intentional physical contact with another person without their consent.
A person can be charged with assault even if they never touch the victim. Most jurisdictions include any attempt to commit a violent injury on another person as assault. Likewise, someone can be charged with simple assault if they touch someone inappropriately even if they did not intend to touch them.

If the actions of one person puts someone else in reasonable fear of bodily harm, the crime of assault can be charged. Spitting on someone or otherwise exposing them to bodily fluids can be considered assault. However, verbal abusing or swearing at another person is not usually considered assault unless the verbal attack includes a threat of violence.

Shall I go on? I am absolutely amazed at the fact that the workers don't know the laws and facts that apply to them while they are working with these kids.
Family members will be watching and listening closely.

Show me a charge for that...lol. Unless I make a threat toward an individual there's no charge, but if I did then it would be terroristic threatening. Now know what in the hell you're talking about before you start spreading crap on here, and yes I was prior law enforcement and military. Have a nice day:)

Ms. Robinson - I don't think anyone is referring to you when they say Academic department doesn't have any experience. Maybe it is the academic supervisor?????

Go to the next fiscal court meeting and ask who got the bid to do all the work at the academy? See for yourself... Wish it could have worked out and helped some kids, but with political scammers wanting to fill their pockets with dirty money has caused a investigation and if the investigate enough the place probaly will not stay open..

I am the teacher you are referring to. I have never disclosed names or any thing that has been told to me by my students. I clearly understand ethical boundaries, I have a M.ED in Counseling and Human Development. I only asked for prayer from my friends for those who have come to us with broken lives and I want the general public to know that there are a lot of good people out at the ACA for the right reasons, to help these kids, however they come to us. Not every child that has come to us comes from dysfunctional families or are delinquents. A lot of good families have problems and get off track. Mine certainly has and I can relate to those who are suffering and that is all I want to do.
LOL! Where did the comment that Skydancer make, say YOUR name MRS ROBINSON? You know it was YOU on fb. LOL The whole world seen you say all that crap coming out of your mouth. I also seen it. You such an understanding teacher and in convidence this kids spoke to YOU? YOU broke their promise. You told all of FB about how sad you was for them and about their familys. It is in black and white. So don't go trying to cover what all you said. WE can read!

I am the art teacher you are referring and no I did not get fired. It was a career change that I gave much prayer and consideration to. It was a direction that I felt God was leading me in.I have always wanted to work at a residential school with at risk youth. This led me to obtaining a M.ED in Counseling and Human Development with and emphasis in mental health counseling. Which is what lead me to the ACA. I left a position of stability with the public school system. I loved my kids there and left with nothing but good to say about HCHS and the people I worked with and for. The other teachers at the ACA are certified and highly qualified as well.
You kow what Mrs.Robinson? The Truth hurts doesn't it? I didn't mention Your name like ex-student said. I said No names. Guilt eatting you up? God leading you in? LOL. Now that is funny.You left for the MONEY. Can i say the magic word again MONEY. Now take that to your prayer crows and pray on that. You taught ART! Not mental health classes at HCHS. I know quiet a few students that needed mental help after being in your class. You broke all trust with your students by getting on FB and chattering like a BIBLE saint. Which you sure as hell aren't.So go pray that YOUR workers there treat these kids with decency and love. Not command them around like prisoners and trash. Like i said These kids are kids. If they were as bad as you and your "people" at the academy say they are, they would be in JAIL. SMH of your stupidity. Yes i have had my say for the day. God bless our kids. Praying for you too Mrs. Robinson. AND this is MY Opinion, and i do have a right to that.

It's called child abuse, plain and simple. You don't have to make threats, body language (as shown in videos below)can be assumed to be a threat. There ARE charges for each individual situations, but what's being done to kids in these camps IS abuse in my opinion and others as you can see below. It's proven that these camps don't work for the majority of students, most return to the behavior within a few months. Violent behavior causes violent behavior, if these kids are yelled/cursed at then they will not learn to do any better than their instructors.

The parents was told the children would have the best of education, psychiactric treatments/therapy for anger issues, physical exercise,but NOTHING like this TORTURE!! If this is happening there at the academy it needs to be told NOW! If the parents are being misled--show them what is going on. Please help the kids. Let their crys be heard NOW!!!

I posted links to OTHER "boot camps" LIKE yours. THOSE LINKS are facts that have been posted by news media, etc so THEY are facts, like it or not. Any I'm sure that the loved ones care about what is being said/done. I've never known of anyone being named "haha" either. That's my opinion, that I'm sure the rest of the NORMAL community shares.

Verbal abuse is a learned behavior, it's like brainwashing - it makes the target or victim confused, feeling crazy and struggling to remain themself, while their awareness is constantly assaulted. It damages self-esteem, self-image. Doesn't that look like what's going on in those videos?

I have a child that goes to ACA,and I have to say,I have seen a great improvement in him,he went on his own,to get his GED.As far as being a good program,yes,I believe it is,and YES there is people there that I do not agree should be over children,and I have to say there is a few things they do I totally do not agree with because those kids have to do things that jail inmates do not have to do.I think there is alot of things that need to be changed.Mrs.Robbinson is a good moral woman,and I believe bringing things up like her dads money and her brother is just childish,her and her family has been thru alot,so just beware of what you say because what you sow,so shall you reap,as far as mentally punishing kids,I wonder about this from time to time,what times I have been there I have not seen that.All I want is for the good of them kids,I want to see them come out of there feeling like they have accomplished something.Some of the kids may be troubled,I do not know,but,I do know that my child went because he wanted to be challenged,and I have to say he has told me that they do not do everything they say they will,and it is not fun and games.Things are starting to be revealed,I just hope the kids that have been there going into the 12 week get to finish what they started,those kids have worked hard,like I said I do not agree with alot of stuff,but,my son is 18,and if it was really as bad as everyone says then i do believe he would sign himself out.I pray daily for the Lord to give those kids wisdom and knowledge,and to protect them,and when you have God on your side everything is going to be alright,,,,God Bless.
