DMA 53-year-old high school teacher has been charged with battery and jailed after he punched a 17-year-old student in the face when she refused to have sex with him. Manuel Cruz is alleged to have had sex with his underage victim on one previous occasion after she visited his apartment on December 9, in Miami, Florida. She returned to his home 11 days later, where the English teacher plied her with alcohol and marijuana and tried to have sex with her again, at which point she refused, according to an arrest affidavit. When the teen said no, Cruz punched her in the face, knocking her out cold.

There has to be more to this story than what meets the eye. Sure, it’s Florida so short of this punch to the face curing the girl’s asthma or him realizing that she is actually his daughter, it’s business as usual. Still we’re forced to tackle what could’ve been going through dude’s mind when he decided to cock back and unload his fist on a teenage girl’s face. One would assume a teacher would want to keep his statutory sex on the hush low. What gives?

My theory: this had been building up for months. Even years, maybe. Chick probably flirted with this old sexless scumbag every single day of his life. Texting him and shit. Just driving his brain and penis crazy with anticipation. Hinting mercilessly that if he wanted to he could drive his junk old balls deep into some teenage strange. And this poor sucker probably ate it all up, screwing up his marriage and relationship with his kids in the process. Banged her once thinking that he would be living in the lap of teenage vaginal luxury forever. ┬áThen when he tried to hook it up again for another casual Barcardi and bowl party — she backed out. And then came the fists.

Not excusing his actions because hitting a female let alone a small girl is a repulsive act. Just saying — there’s probably more to the story than we think.
