    DETROIT (WJBK) - A Detroit teacher has been fired after a cell phone video surfaced of her breaking up a fight between two students with a broom.

    In the video, the two male students are fighting for at least half a minute before the teacher intervenes. Several students can be seen standing by as the two fight, knocking over desks.

    When the teacher does intervene, she appears to strike one of the students on the back with a broom multiple times. The student backs off, but then the other student runs back towards him and the fight continues.

    The fight finally appears to end up when a student steps in and pulls the two apart. The video ends moments later.

    Now, the Pershing High School teacher is out of a job as the school district says it does not tolerate child abuse.

    Those students were probably debating the relative merits of the Taft-Hartley Act before things got a little out of hand.

    I don't get it:dontknow:

    I understand lawsuits and such, but do you mean the teacher should have just stood there watching the broom beat the crap out of the student? I'm sure if defending itself, the broom's parents wouldn't have sued, although they may have bristled.

    Why would anyone fight with a broom? It's not as if the broom could have said something bad about the teacher cause brooms don't speak.

    She should have used a shotgun. Why are A group of lovely people allowed in public schools? Why weren't A group of lovely people sent back to Africa after the Civil War?
