White House: Trump tweets about UCLA players were 'rhetorical'

  White House: Trump tweets about UCLA players were 'rhetorical' Trump was being "rhetorical" when he said that he should have left the three UCLA basketball players arrested in China in jail, the White House said Monday. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was "happy to intervene" on behalf of the American student athletes detained on suspicion of shoplifting, and that his tweets were "less about the players" and instead focused on one of the players' father, LaVar Ball.Ball, a former basketball player, seemed to question Trump's role in his son's release in an interview with ESPN on Friday."Who?

A KINDERGARTEN teacher accused of feeding children pills has been arrested after horrific allegations of abuse . The allegations , coming just weeks after reports of abuse at a Shanghai day care centre, raised concerns about potential lapses in supervision in the booming private preschool

The announcement seemed to at least partly vindicate parents who in recent days have claimed that children at the kindergarten may have been abused. They said 3-year-olds in one class had described being fed pills that made them drowsy and given shots that left tiny marks on their skin, and some alleged that children were stripped.

Indiana teacher busted after being caught on camera doing drugs in classroom

  Indiana teacher busted after being caught on camera doing drugs in classroom An Indiana high school teacher got more than detention when she was arrested after a video posted to social media allegedly showed her doing drugs in an empty classroom. Samantha Cox, a 24-year-old teacher at Lake Central High School in the town of St. John near the Illinois border, was arrested on Wednesday for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.The English teacher was allegedly caught doing drugs after students filmed her with a phone from outside the classroom, according to Fox 32 Chicago."It's absolutely, I can't' really describe it.

Police in Beijing have detained a teacher as they investigate allegations that children were drugged and molested at a kindergarten .

The allegations fit a recent pattern of suspected abuse at Chinese kindergartens and child care centers, much of it documented on school surveillance Last year, police detained two teachers , also in southeast China, over accusations that they punished at least one child by jabbing him with needles.

After the police announced the detention, the commission said it “strongly condemns the actions of the person implicated in the case that gravely violated teaching morals.”

But Ms. Liu’s detention does not mean she has been formally arrested. Criminal detention allows the Chinese police to hold a suspect while they investigate allegations and consider charges, and the police said their investigation would continue.

The step may not be enough to quell the anger of the parents and their supporters, and some suggested in comments on social media that the young teacher would become a scapegoat for broader failings. The parents have said that their children described abuses by more than one teacher. The Chaoyang District government in Beijing, which covers the area where the facility operates, said the principal of the kindergarten had been dismissed, and other staff members may also be held accountable, depending on their findings.

At the kindergarten in Xintiandi run by RYB Education, a New York-listed education chain that is well known in China, children were allegedly given pills, pierced with needles, forced to strip naked, and possibly sexually molested, according to the New York Times. One teacher has been detained in relation to the allegations, though the public anger does not look likely to soon dissipate.

Reports detailing allegations of China’s third recent child abuse scandal triggered an outpouring of online rage. Strikingly, after two days of high-profile coverage in China’s party-controlled press there was virtually no mention of the scandal in Beijing ’s main newspapers on Friday morning.

But city authorities have distanced themselves from the most chilling allegations made by parents: that children in the class may have been sexually assaulted by a predatory ring.

The Beijing police said on Saturday that they had also detained a woman who confessed to spreading rumors that a group of military officers had molested children at the kindergarten. A Chinese military officer vehemently denied the rumors on Friday.

The kindergarten under investigation is operated by RYB Education — the letters stand for red, yellow and blue — which listed on the New York Stock Exchange in September. The company runs 80 kindergartens across China and has franchise operators for 175 other facilities. On Friday, the company’s stock price plummeted nearly 40 percent.
