Kiki Fowler, the 33-year-old mom, is reported to have led the attack which lasted several minutes and included punches, slamming the teacher to the ground and ripping of her shirt and bra.
In 2008, Georgia Thornton and her daughter Sequita Thornton, an Atlanta high school student, carried out a similar act of terrorism. Reports say the mother-daughter duo went to Southside High School to confront teacher, Felecia Williams, for giving the girl a failing grade. Police said the mother then beat and kicked the teacher until students pulled her away. The mother said of her actions: “That teacher, she had it in for my daughter, I raised my daughter not to disrespect adults, so I took care of this situation. Yes, I hit her. I do what I have to do to protect my child at all costs.”
