Bullied Autistic Boy Brings Hidden Microphone In The Backpack To School. His Mom's Bitter Discovery Makes 2 Teachers Fired
A 12-year-old boy named Camden Davis from Baton Rouge, Louisiana started attending the Hope Academy the last year. The institution prides itself on its unique ability to teach students with special needs, promoting encouragement, inclusion, recognition, and positive relationships toward the students with disabilities.
Camden is severely autistic, and his mom Milissa Davis enrolled him at academy amid hopes of giving him an understanding and supportive environment where the boy could learn by easy stages on his own.
However, Milissa began to notice drastic changes in Camden's behavior. He showed increased signs of distress each day after coming back home from school. Boy's mom knew something was wrong but wasn't quite sure of it.
Suddenly, sweet boy Camden started behaving in a very unnatural way - frequently wetting the bed and being pretty aggressive from time to time. Camden's mom tried to talk to academy officials, but she was eventually brushed off.
So one day, Milissa decided to hatch her own plan, putting a recording device in her son's backpack to get at least a minor idea of what was going on in the school. Saying that she was shocked after son's return is an underestimate.

Milissa revealed that her sweet boy was bullied. No, not by kids in the playground, not even by classmates, but by trained teachers, whose initial mission was to support Camden.
From audio recordings, Milissa could hear her boy being harassed and mocked by two of his teachers. One of them said 'You’re just writing the word. What is hard about it?', mimicking the boy when Camden struggled to reply.
From the recordings, Milissa could hear one of the teachers saying:
Camden, why don’t you have anything written down? That’s why you can’t sit with everyone. Tell your momma that.
What followed, was even more horrifying.
It's needless to say that Milissa Davis was feeling heartbroken. She wanted to scream, cry, and do anything she could because it all seemed to be too bad to be real.
To think that I had sent my son there every day, and what had happened before, that I didn’t know about.
Fortunately, when Milissa brought the recordings of teachers' brutality to the school, the officials reacted on the spot. Both teachers were fired the next day. More on this heartbreaking story is in the video right below.
Bullying is always awful when it's kids-on-kids. However, it's much worse when it comes to adults picking on your sweet child.
