Student Slits Teacher’s Throat For Confiscating Mobile Phone

Woman Suspects Husband Of Cheating And Stabs Him With A Knife

The use of mobile phones by students during lessons at school is a problem faced by many teachers around the world. One course of action that a teacher has is to confiscate the phone from the offending student.

At a school in China recently that strategy didn’t go so well. A student from a middle school in Fuzhou, situated in the eastern Chinese Jiangxi province, was found playing on his phone during a chemistry class.

His teacher, Sun Wakang, promptly confiscated the mobile phone for the duration of the day, returning it to him just before school ended. The next day, the disgruntled student entered Sun Wakang’s classroom, walked up quietly behind him, and slit his throat while he marked papers.

He then fled the scene of the incident while the 32-year-old father of one bled to death. The student did finally contact authorities and admit that he perpetrated the throat slitting. He then turned himself into the police authorities in Shanghai.

The teacher who was killed worked as a chemistry teacher in the school for five years until his recent murder. The killing was also carried out at an unfortunate time of the year, as just four days earlier, China’s official Teacher’s Day was celebrated by students honoring their teachers.

A teacher in another room heard the commotion and the screams of the victim and called an ambulance immediately. Even though it arrived quickly at the school, the victim had already bled out and was pronounced dead at the scene.

    School is for learning. Phones have no place in the classroom and should be secured in desks, lockers or other secure places, and kept OFF. This 'student' will be executed, I am sure.

  2. Hunter Shaffer

    The kid should also be killed. Eye for an eye, eh? As a middle schooler, he has to take responsibility for his actions: Perhaps death, in this case. Unpopular opinion, sure. But if someone is willing to kill someone over a mobile phone at that age, it will only manifest into more serious behavior *If it even exists* ~ Death penalty for this one. Bitch at me all you want, BTW.

    I'll probably be ridiculed by those on my friends list who believe that these types of people can be "rehabilitated". Sure, Bundy could have been rehabilitated too right? Pfft.

    i personally think that the student should a) have his phone pulverized before his very eyes and then b) he be punished rightfully so for his crime. let the family of the teacher choose what to do with him.

  6. Gerardo Ochoa-Vargas

    While China doesn't execute minors, be sure that this kid won't get the usual slap on the wrist we give in Western countries. China knows how to deal with these scumbags.

    The authorities need to do the same but make it a slow and painful death. WTF is wrong with this world we live in. Middle school student, that makes it even worse because the student is so young and actually thought of something like that. And why did the parents allow him to take his cell phone to school.

  8. Charlene Jessamine

    it's a good thing it happened in China. If it were the US he would have shot her. China is notorious for these crimes as psychology is frowned upon.

  9. PJ Granieri

    May Karma kiss your asses asking this child be put to death … Get on your biblical asses an knees an pray for both you bigots …

  10. Charlene Jessamine

    Darin Grosso The weapon of choice is very important. China has strict gun laws. It is also imperative that they begin to understand that psychiatric medicine is not a sin and shouldn't place a stigma on those affected. A teacher died, yes, and he will be punished accordingly and quickly

  11. Charlene Jessamine

    as well, I don't need to be admonished for not showing any empathy or sadness over the death of the teacher. Not all people are emotionally triggered by such things. I am a person with great emotional control and we are just as important and needed in society as those who are. We are police and judges and lawyers and social workers doing the jobs the weak at heart can't handle.

  12. Kaide Melloch

    Learn your lesson dick? Don't touch other peoples shit dumbass! its not nice.

  13. Faye Vance

    I would much rather be shot than have my throat slit. Goes to show you gun control does not work. If someone wants to kill you they will. If they were to ban guns in the U S , the only people that would have them are the people that would kill you anyway. CRIMINALS

  14. Lynda Prado

    Charlene Jessamine It's no more fair to be scornful of the ''weak of heart" than it is those that are not quite as emotional. The "Weak of heart" do jobs that the less emotional would have a lot harder of a time doing. Nurses, teachers, counselors, pastors etc. I don't think you meant it to sound that way but "Weak of heart" makes them sound inferior.

  15. Tina Duerr

    what is wrong wit this country that you would suggest a slow and painful death? wtf is wrong with you, huh?

  16. Steve Titus

    Randy Nold SIGH! My bad. Did you see where the lady tryin to crash the gate at the white house was driving a Dodge AR-15?

  17. Jim Liang

    sorry but it depends on who is using the phone. They make excellent translators when taking notes in language classes where the teacher talks super fast.

  18. Hunter Shaffer

    Would you rather him be rewarded for killing a 32 year old father? Sorry, I prefer punishing in cases like this: Are you going to buy him an Xbox and tell him not to do it again? Sorry, sweetie: Doesn't work like that.

  19. Yolanda Rodriguez

    The problem is not the phone – the problem is the students behavior. You have to be out your dang mind or straight up evil to kill somebody over a dang cell phone. At his age – they might as well put him to sleep cause he is only going to grow up and be…well nothing good.

  20. Whitney Mankey

    Okay a first thing I'll say, under NO circumstances is the kid in the right and I'm extremely sorry the teacher had to die because the kid obviously has some other MENTAL issues we don't know about.. Now with that..I wouldn't have my phone taken away, for a couple of reason's 1) being I would be too busy taking notes to use my phone. 2) It's my own personal property, bought with my own money, no one is taking my phone. Either way it's a phone and this teacher or any other teacher, should NEVER have to die because of it (I'm assuming the taking away of the phone was a trigger of some sort to the kid).

  21. Joseph Alain

    Yeah, I might try to defend a kid who did it over a momentary lapse of judgement whose rage clouded reason… But he had slept on his actions and brought a knife to school to kill his teacher… That's messed up

  22. Jennifer Spring Blachly

    Not going to bitch at you, but I do disagree. Clearly the kid is not a pyschopath or he would not have felt guilty enough to turn himself in. I do not believe in an eye for an eye. We shouldn't try to teach people not to kill by killing ourselves. Someone has to have morals.

  23. Jennifer Spring Blachly

    I dont just allow, I INSIST my child take his cell phone to school. Why? Because of how many school shootings there are in this country. If my son is at school when violence erupts, at least he can call 911. Those cell phones can save lives.

  24. Jennifer Spring Blachly

    Charlene Jessamine It's not weak to have compassion and empathy. My job is social and I find that having empathy and compassion are very important to my work. It's fine if you are emotionally contained but don't insult others who find their emotions to be their greatest assets.

  25. Jennifer Spring Blachly

    Faye Vance Disagree. If the kid had a gun it's possible many more people could or would have died.

  26. Morna Hemmer

    Probably will be. But we'll never know. I can't even imagine why cells phones are allowed in classes. With so much distraction, how do teachers teach. For centuries, most folks survived wo cell phones. Just ban them across the board. Getting an education is that child's job. Most people are not allowed to make a lot of personal phone calls during working hours. They need to catch on quick that the world doesn't revolve around them and their issues.

  27. Morna Hemmer

    I guess you live in a dangerous place. Truly the ratio of shootings to school children is very low. Yes, even one is too many. However, if you have instructed your child to be responsible with a privilege, who is to judge.

  28. Blair Booth-Simoneau

    @Morna Hemmer; All schools, at least here in the west, do outright ban phones in school. That doesn't stop students from bringing them in and trying to sneak in using them during classes or lunch.

    Ban is just a word, you can say…let's ban something…but it doesn't just cease it from existing.

  29. Anonymous

    Jennifer Spring Blachly Stop it.

    There are not that many school shootings in this country.

    Go add up the number of schools in this country. In fact limit it to public schools only and limit it to just hugh schools.

    Take the number of total public high schools in America and then take the number of school shootings and you will see the number is very, very small. Meaning school shootings are RARE.

    The odds are higher your entire family will be hit head on by a drunk driver then your kid ever getting shot at school.

    The odds that your kid will hit someone while driving because they were texting while driving is higher than the odds he/she will be shot at school.

    In fact, more kids texting while driving will hit other drivers on the road than there ever will be kids shot in school.

    You want kids to have the phone in school? Ok.

    I would like teens to not have the phone while driving in their car.

    Trust me, my fear is far more real than yours.

    Someone killed someone without a gun? Astonishing! And someone was murdered somewhere besides the US? Amazing!

  31. Buce McLaughlin

    We must start a program here in the US, whereas a heinous committed by a youngster, should be tried as an adult and regardless of the age, should suffer the same outcome as if they were adults themselves.
    This sends a clear message to others that "Lose their Temper".

    I would have no objection to this murderer being executed as this was premeditated. His phone was taken for the day AND GIVEN BACK TO HIM. He killed this man the next day AFTER HE'D gotten the phone back already….. just because he was still mad. Really? Hell no. So now someone LOST their LIFE, children lost their father, and a wife lost her husband……. over what? Some may disagree with execution…. but I wonder what they would think after he grows up and murders their whole family…… would they be so sympathetic then?

    This is also why i support teachers being able to carry concealed weapons.

    I realize this is super old, but it popped up on my newsfeed.. Sad and messed up I agree, but from what I gather, you are against animals being eaten killed for food, so I am curious why are you so okay with people getting killed? Don't get me wrong, I am for the death penalty in cases that it should be, and I do believe that a lot of people have no chance of being rehabbed. But i do believe some can, and I also believe that a lot of people who commit heinous crimes are suffering from a mental disorder (and I don't mean sadistic, evil, or psychopath as a disorder lol, I mean Bipolar, Schizophrenic, Autism, etc). So to me, killing these people for their disability is like someone killing me for my OI.

    Erin Renae Reid All murders can't just be written off as someone having a mental disorder. Humans are capable of understanding and therefore acting in accordance with a system of morals: The animals that are farmed and slaughtered are innocent beings with no understanding of said system of morals.

    I'm not "so okay" with people getting killed, and in the overwhelming majority of cases I'm against the death penalty: At the same time, I feel that in some cases like this rehabilitation is not possible.

  38. Erin Renae Reid

    Oh i know all can't be written off as a mental disorder. But, there is not enough info on this kid in the article to know whether or not he has a mental disorder or not. I only bring this up because my nephew has Aspergers. While I dont believe he would ever ever do something like this, he has said some fairly disturbing things and he is only 7. I get your reasoning on the animals part… Makes sense. I prefer animals to most people lol, and my 2 shelter dogs are my babies. Although I am not vegan, I try to buy from places where the animals are treated humanely while alive.
