What is it with school resource officers these days? What an Orwellian title.
SRO Ben Fields was recently fired for slamming a teen girl down in her desk and throwing her across a room because she wouldn’t leave the room after getting in trouble for being on her cell phone.
Now, Master Sgt. Thomas Jaha has been arrested on a charge of assault for punching a 16-year-old student without a hall pass in the face not once, but twice at U.S. Grant High School in Oklahoma City.
The 16-year-old boy did commit the high crime of being in the hallway without a hall pass. When Officer Jaha caught him coming out of the bathroom, the officer yelled at the student, warning him to return to the assembly going on at the time. The student stopped to get a drink of water at the water fountain anyway, and that’s when Jaha appeared to go ballistic, punching the student twice in the face.
All of it was caught on camera.
Jaha claims the student “took an aggressive stance” so the officer had to protect himself against the teen. Watch the video below, however. The student never once strikes the officer or even touches him in any way. In fact, the teen’s supposed “aggressive stance” isn’t shown in the video either.
Besides, Officer Jaha isn’t a small guy otherwise unable to defend himself against one angsty teen, and this isn’t the streets… it’s supposed to be a high school hallway.
Kinda sad when even the Oklahoma City PD is saying this was an inappropriate use of force.
“They have the right to defend themselves. They have the right to use physical force to protect themselves, protect the public. And in this particular case, the force was not appropriate to the incident,” OKPD’s Capt. Paco Balderrama said.
Initially the student was arrested for disorderly conducted, but then the surveillance video was released, and Officer Jaha was charged with assault. He has been suspended with pay.
On another note, consider the fact that, in real life outside the walls of the government indoctrination centers that pass as schools these days, leaving an assembly to go to the bathroom and get a drink of water is not a crime punishable by arrest and a disorderly conduct charge.
These are teenage students and our schools are supposed to be places to learn first and foremost.
Seems a lot more like prison training than anything…
