People are in an uproar after watching video of Officer Ben Fields, a Deputy in Columbia, South Carolina, throw a female high school student like a rag doll when she refused to leave the classroom. Of course, the whole thing was being filmed. It’s being called the #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh and the internet is pissed.
Officer Fields is now under investigation and both the ACLU and the Richland Two Black Parents Association have gone on the record as calling it “egregious” and unacceptable.
According to students (who were obviously always going to side with the high school girl), she was being disruptive. When the student refused to leave the classroom, that’s when Officer Fields was called in.
Now before we go and hunt every police officer in the school system, please remember that there are a good number of officers who both like their job and do a fantastic job of restraining themselves. Officer Fields is just not one of those men.
Take a look at this one officer who intentionally keeps his hands to himself while waiting for backup. It’s just sad that we only talk about the bad people, not the good ones.
