    Well, I attended the two Marathon nights last year, heard nine bands, and there was not a trace of politics in anything I attended.

  11. From the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in 1887: Willson, Judge. This conviction is for an aggravated assault and battery. The facts are, substantially, that defendant was a school teacher conducting a school; that the party assaulted, one W. Z. Nugent, a boy nine years of age, was a pupil in said school. This boy fought with other boys, but the fighting occurred away from the school house, and not during school hours. Among other rules of the school was one prohibiting the students from fighting. When it came to the knowledge of the defendant that this pupil and other pupils had been engaged in fighting, he punished all so engaged for a violation of said rule, by whipping them. He whipped the pupil, W. Z. Nugent, with a switch of reasonable size, and struck him about nine licks on the legs, inflicting no severe bruises, abrasions or other serious injury. These are the facts upon which this conviction is based, and in our judgment they do not sustain the conviction. Our law wisely provides that the exercise of moderate restraint or correction by a teacher over a scholar is legal, -- does not constitute an assault or battery. (Penal Code, art. 490, sub. div. 1.) It is not shown by the evidence that the correction administered by the teacher to his pupil in this instance was immoderate. It was merely an ordinary whipping with a small switch, such as many parents inflict upon their refractory boys, and such as should perhaps be more common among parents and teachers. That the punishment was inflicted for an infraction of a rule of the school, which infraction was committed away from the school house, and not during school hours, did not deprive the teacher of the legal right to punish the pupil for such infraction. (Bouldin v. The State, ante, p. 172.) Believing this conviction to be contrary to the evidence and the law, the judgment is reversed and the cause remanded. Reversed and remanded. Opinion delivered May 25, 1887

  13. I always wondered how schools (at least here in Texas) got away with administering beatings of students with a wooden club (licks they were called) back in the 1970s, ostensibly for disciplinary reasons. As I recall there would be a vice principal in charge of administering licks, and the coaches also liberally doled out mini-beatings. There actually is a special legal justification for educators which can protect them from assault charges against students. To quote the Texas Penal code: "The use of force, but not deadly force, against a person is justified: (1) if the actor is entrusted with the care, supervision, or administration of the person for a special purpose; and (2) when and to the degree the actor reasonably believes the force is necessary to further the special purpose or to maintain discipline in a group." Presumably the outcome would be that Hino's belief that the force he used was necessary to further his music education purpose was not a reasonable belief, though of course one would have to know the actual facts, as opposed to reaching judgment based on a vague newspaper article.
