A Florida judge sided with a special needs teacher who allegedly used hot sauce to stop an autistic student from eating art supplies and recommended the school district reinstate the woman's job.Source
It's upsetting to see how the judge is awarding and condoning the abuse. The judge claims that it can't be proven that the hot sauce was used as punishment and that's why Lillian Gomez should get her job back. I think it actually makes things worse. If she didn't use the hot sauce as a (very dimwitted) punishment then she must have done it out of pure evil to torture the poor kid. Such people should not work with kids in any form or way.
