Kentucky teacher threatened to cut student’s penis off during kickball

Anderson County is serious about its middle school kickball.

In 2017, Chrystal Graham, then a seventh-grade teacher, threatened a student after a kickball game on the last day of school. Graham told the student she would “cut off his penis and shove it down his throat.” She was also accused of flipping off another student (with a double-bird!) and telling some of her students, “On three, kick Durbin’s ass,” referring to another teacher at the school.

Graham pleaded not guilty to charges of threatening a male student. She is back in court today.

Hot take: I completely get it. We used to have some kickball wars at West Broadway Elementary in Madisonville. I wish my teachers had this kind of spirit when Mr. Harris’ class was mercy-ruling us every time a pizza party was on the line. Should a teacher be saying that to a student in the classroom? Absolutely not. But when you’re inside the chalk and the kickballs are flying, I think anything goes. I read this as intense coaching and standing up for your team. I’d play for Graham any day.

    Do you have any kids Drew? If so, you need to quit drinking the happy juice so early in the day! Totally inappropriate behavior on the teacher (in or out of the classroom).

      I know there are a lot of good teachers out there but we see many who do not give a crap about their students.

      News flash: Acting like you agree with something atrocious for humor’s sake is completely lost on Captain Serious here…

      I am also not impressed with with Drew’s take on this. Not funny at all. Consider this criticism Earned and Not Given, Mr. Franklin.

    Wow. I’m not sure this satire is even appropriate. I had drill instructors in basic training that weren’t as crude.

      Satire is better when it’s inappropriate.

      Satire is to inappropriate, as inappropriate is to satire. Somehow that sounds like something forest gump would say.

      When were you in boot camp? My drill instructors said and did things that make this teacher sound like mother Theresa!

    Crude for sure, but is this a legal matter? Tying up the courts for this? She should get a reprimand, but I assume she was joking or trash talking. Doesn’t mean it was the correct thing to do, but bringing up charges seems a little much.

      That was my thought. Reprimand or fire the teacher but why is this an issue for the courts? (And I have kids.)

      Law student here…I totally agree. And sure, charges COULD be brought for this conduct, but should the school/county have done so? They weren’t thinking about the court system, but this is a waste of resources/taxpayer dollars having this go through legal proceedings. Whether you have kids or not, there are MUCH bigger fish to fry…child predators for example.

    This screams of a teacher that got pink-slipped and gave zero f’s, clearly. Regardless of how vile and inappropriate the behavior was, it certainly shouldn’t be tying up courts, imo. She clearly wasn’t actually going to follow through with her “threat,” that was obviously just a horribly bad joke made in the worst circumstance imaginable.

    She’s under paid. Lol smh

      Maybe that’s why she snapped. I’m sure she was underpaid. Would take a hell of a lot more than $30,000 for me to put up with other peoples’ brats all school year.

      Lol she didn’t snap. If she did she would’ve actually followed through with her threat and done the act.

      Now that would be a Snapped for the Oxygen channel. I didn’t mean that big of a snap. You’ve never snapped and cussed someone out, then realized you were overreacting? You ever been hangry? lol

    People don’t understand how serious kickball can be. It is a vicious game with vicous rules and appropriate coaching. Deal with it.

      Oh yeah I am sure he would have a funny story to tell about how this has affects him or his accolades… Or maybe a source that may even have the inside scoop on the teacher… I really had many good laughs from weneedpitino… I wonder where he went he was great for a laugh

    Cameron Diaz in Bad Teacher was clearly her role model… and count me as another lawyer thinking this is an absolute waste of the Court’s time and the people’s money. Inappropriate? Yea. Criminal? Not for a minute.

    I attended West Broadway as well. Bobcats for life! I’m a bit older than you, tho, Drew. I was queen of kickball and dodgeball back in the day. I ran the West Broadway playground!

    It’s posts (and commentary) like this that make me wonder how screwed up I’ve become from living in Seattle for 14 years. I’m moving back east this summer and i literally can’t wait. However, I’m a little concerned about how my SoCal wife will adapt… Lol.

    Some if you don’t see the problem with a female teacher telling a 7th grader “she will cut off his penis and shove it down his throat”….kidding or not, this doesn’t scream “WRONG” in big, fat red letters?! Damn, I must be getting old and cranky I guess.

      All she has to do is say she is a democrat and liberal and she will be set free without any charges and allowed to go back to her job.
