Matt Wood has told me stories of having to take away cell phones and other portable devices from his students. But let the following story be a warning to you all: Students will lay the smack down if you jack their iPods.

Be afraid, Keeley. Be very afraid.

According to Engadget, "A 60-year-old teacher from Germantown, Penn., is in intensive care right now after two students broke his neck in retaliation for confiscating an iPod in class. Fortunately, the teacher wasn’t paralyzed and the two students, 14 and 17, were caught on film during the assault and quickly apprehended."

Is the iPod the new Raiders jacket?
