Having heard the details of the incident from the teacherís perspective, as well as the video released, there was conspicuously no direct evidence of a physical assault. There was a verbal exchange between the teacher, who narrated his filming of the event, and a group of students that included Russell and Taylor. Certainly, from the exhibits, there was no proof of anything earth-shattering, certainly not in keeping with the stories told by the teacher. The most poignant fact of this particular matter to date is that Calabar did act by suspending both Russell and Taylor for one week for their part in the incident, as was its prerogative, right, and responsibility.
