Viral Video Shows Mother’s Video Of Her Son Getting Paddled By The School Principal

A video circulating the internet of a 5-year-old boy getting paddled by his school principal in front of his mom is causing much controversy. Shana Marie Perez, the mother who recorded the punishment, puts the blame on the principal. Her son had 18 unexcused absences and she was once arrested for his truancy. According to her, the school threatened her with an arrest unless she gave them permission to paddle Thomas.

“I felt like I had no other option. The principal led me to believe that the paddle was the only option.”
