TEN-YEAR-old Malachi Pearson from Lenexa Kansas was left in tears after a teacher uttered words that no child should ever be told.

According to Pearson, the incident occurred last week in his schools cafeteria line while he was playing with friends and the teacher intervened.

“Me and my friends were playing, and then she like pushed us away. We weren’t fighting. We were just playing and laughing,” Malachi said.

He claims that this is when, “she told me when you turn 16 and the police shoot you, the only person you can be mad at is yourself.”

Outraged at the allegation, Pearson’s mother Mahogany Foster said: “It’s unbelievable that she would say that to my son.

“I’m so vexed by the whole thing. I never take sides, but I know for a fact that Malachi, he’s a respectful child, so for somebody to say that to a respectful child, I feel that was a low blow and that was something personal. You shouldn’t say that to any child.”

The ordeal was particularly hurtful for Pearson who lost his father to gun crime shortly after he was born.

A statement from Shawnee Mission School District read: “Our investigation is complete. It’s a personal matter and by federal law, we cannot discuss any disciplinary decisions taken against a teacher or employee.”

Ms Foster has reportedly removed her son from the school.
