  1. We are a nation of laws, The. Other acted just as she accused the teacher, The difference is there is substantial evidence against the mother and none against the teacher, I am ashamed of those who fund vigilante justice .

    • There was no evidence against the teacher because corporal punishment is legal in Georgia. All that the police statement means is that the teacher didn’t break the law, not that she didn’t physically assault the kid with the legal protection of archaic laws.
