http://www.theblaze.com/stories/vir...l/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter# An elementary school teacher in Chesapeake, Va. has been charged with simple assault after a parent claimed her daughterâ€™s hand was cut open as a result of the teacher yanking her arm aggressively while trying to teach students an â€œIslamic hand sign.â€ Officer Leo Kosinski, a spokesman for the Chesapeake Police Department, told TheBlaze that Tara Harris was criminally charged with a misdemeanor on Oct. 11 and released on a summons. The case is currently under investigation. â€œItâ€™s still a criminal charge. It happened at the school and it involved a student,â€ Kosinski said. The police department could not release any additional information. Stephanie Bennett, the mother of the 10-year-old girl who was allegedly assaulted at Butts Road Intermediate School, told TheBlaze in an emotional phone interview that Harris has a disturbing trend of â€œindoctrinatingâ€ students with Islamic teachings. She also said the teacher openly campaigns for President Barack Obama in the classroom.
