Police: Conn. teacher made boy eat from garbage


Police: Conn. teacher made boy eat from garbage

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. � A kindergarten teacher in a Bridgeport school has been arrested for allegedly forcing a 5-year-old boy to eat his lunch from a garbage can.

Sixty-seven-year-old Anne O'Donnell of Fairfield, a teacher at Park City Magnet School, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of risk of injury to a minor.

School officials say the charge stems from an incident last week when the boy apparently tossed out his lunch of chicken nuggets and a banana from the school cafeteria.

The teacher is accused of retrieving the items from the garbage can and forcing the boy to eat them in front of her.

O'Donnell has been released on a promise to appear in court

"Risk of injury" ???    I'm not saying the teacher's actions were justified, since he's just a little boy, but this charge is a little over-the-top. To me the headlines are a bit misleading. She didn't make the boy eat "garbage." She told him to eat the lunch he just threw away. If this is considered to be a serious offense and "risk of injury" then my teachers would have been on death row.
