A British teen who attacked his black teacher has been sentenced to 11 years in prison, the Mirror reports.
The Pakistani student reportedly called his Dixons Kings Academy teacher Vincent Uzomah the “N” word prior to the assault.
Prosecutor Jonathan Sharp described the boy as a “bully” who stabbed Uzomah because he didn’t like being disciplined by a black man.
“He approached Mr Uzomah and reached into his pocket but at that point he took out the knife and stabbed Mr Uzomah in the stomach,” said Sharp.
“Mr Uzomah thought he was going to die,” Sharp explained.
The teen then bragged in a Facebook posting, “the m*****f****r getin funny so I stick the blade straight in his tummy.”
Sixty nine of the boy’s friends liked the Facebook status, something Uzomah called “hard to understand” during a victim impact statement.
The boy also reportedly told a student the previous day of his plans to attack Uzomah.
Although Mr. Uzomah says the assault “has left psychological scars on my life and the life of my family”, he added that “my wife and I still find time to pray for the boy.”
The boy was sentenced to 11 years in prison but he will likely only serve three if he remains on good behavior.
