[video] White Officer Violently Body Slams Teenage Black Female Student in Classroom, School District Responds

This was a young black girl who was treated like an animal by this pig, and the mainstream media and some of you sheepish Americans wonder why there is a movement called Black Lives Matter. Was she about to shoot up the school or set off a bomb like Ahmed was suspected of doing by his teachers?

Authorities in Richland County, South Carolina, are investigating a video that surfaced Monday showing a uniformed officer aggressively confronting a high school student. Local station WIS-TV reports that county sheriff’s deputies are investigating the incident, which took place on Monday at Spring Valley High School, according to school officials. The video, which appears to have been recorded on a cell phone by a classmate, shows a white male officer standing over a black female student sitting at her desk; moments later he grabs the student, flips her on her back, and drags her across the floor. After dragging her across the floor the officer says, “Hands behind your back—give me your hands.” The video has no additional context as to what led to or followed the altercation.

“Parents are heartbroken as this is just another example of the intolerance that continues to be of issue in Richland County School District Two, particularly with families and children of color,” a local black parents group wrote in a statement responding to the video.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott told WIS-TV that the school resource officer was responding to a student who was refusing to leave class. “The student was told she was under arrest for disturbing school and given instructions which she again refused,” Lott said. “The video then shows the student resisting and being arrested by the SRO.”

The video is the latest in a series of disturbingly violent altercations involving school cops. As Mother Jones first reported in July, there have been at least 29 incidents in the United States since 2010 in which school-based police officers used questionable force against students in K-12 schools, many of which caused serious injuries, and in one case, death. Data on use of force by school cops is lacking even as the number of officers on campus has ballooned over the past two decades, with little training or oversight.
