The Knockout Game

Michael Fisher, a teacher at Willie Ray Smith Middle School in Texas, has been fired after knocking out a 12-year-old boy. Reginald Wells made a joke about Fisher's favorite football team, and Fisher hit him in the shoulder. Wells pushed him back, and the teacher punched him twice in the face. Police say they plan to file a charge of injury to a child against Fisher.
