This story broke yesterday morning, and was all over the news nationwide by the afternoon. The FBI even announced its own investigation.
Thanks to national attention, we know a lot more details of the case now.
Student Resource Officer Ben Fields was called into the classroom after a student got in trouble for refusing to turn off her cell phone. She was asked to leave the classroom and refused. An administrator was called in. The girl still refused. Finally they called in Fields who asked her several times to get up and come with him.
She still refused.
This is what happened.
People had mixed reactions.
It was scary how many statists championed this officer’s behavior, claiming that not doing what a cop says automatically equals justification for being physically abused by police.
Claiming that a teenage girl non-violently defying officer orders — a situation which all began over a cell phone, not something that was putting anyone including the cop in immediate danger — automatically deserves to be slammed violently to the floor and thrown across the room.
Well, apparently not everyone agrees with those people, including Sheriff Leon Lott who says after he saw the video, it made him want to vomit.
Fields was first suspended without pay. Today he was fired.
And all because a teenage girl didn’t want to put away her cell phone.
How stupid does that sound?
Because, certainly, slamming a girl to the floor and chucking her across the room will somehow restore order to the classroom. Like any of those kids were going to focus on their math homework after witnessing that go down.
Give me a break.
So many brainwashed sheep who are spouting off that people who do not automatically follow police orders without question deserve bodily harm or death. The teen girl may have totally been in the wrong. Teenagers can be *expletive* punks. Not the point here.
What’s more disturbing is in one CNN report on this case, a minister in the area discussed how more kids these days are being arrested in schools than on the street.
Schools churning out prisoners in a school-to-prison pipeline. How’s that for the modern American police state?
“What are you in for?”
“Uhh… cell phone…”
