Despite a law stating that only parents and grandparents have the right to inflict corporal punishment on children, the Texas Attorney General (a Republican) stated that school districts in Texas retained the right to paddle students.
In Cleveland, Texas, a boy was paddled so brutally that he needed medical attention. He was punished in spite of instructions from his parents to the school district denying the district permission to do so. The superintendent of the school district said that the permission slip was a courtesy that in no way restricted the district.
You Texans deserve to get pissed on by your elected officials. They have no respect for you. They don't need to respect you because you're too goddamn stuipid to do anything but vote for Republicans who piss on you every time they can.
