Kansas state Rep. Mark Samsel (R) was arrested on charges of misdemeanor battery after getting into a physical altercation with a student while substitute teaching, the Kansas City Star reports.
In one video, Samsel tells the student: “You’re about ready to anger me and get the wrath of God. Do you believe me when I tell you that God has been speaking to me?” He then pushes him, and the student runs to the other side of the classroom.
In another video, he tells students: “Class, you have permission to kick him in the balls.”
Parents say Samsel “put hands on the student” and kneed him in the crotch. In a video immediately after the incident, the student is shown on the ground. Samsel is standing over him and says: “Did it hurt?”Save to Favorites
