Claiming he was a "rogue" agent is nonsense. Whether or not anybody else in his unit got some of the proceeds he stole they definitely knew what was going on and they did nothing.

But a bad guy is in jail.  Ends justify the means, etc, etc.

I've had some professional involvement on the very outer periphery of this. Even based on my limited knowledge, the story's even zanier than it appears.

Richland County, SC (WLTX) – A video has surfaced online of an incident between a Spring Valley High School student and a school resource officer that occurred inside a classroom.

The video began spreading on social media sites Monday afternoon. In it, a female student can be seen sitting in her chair in a classroom where several other students are present. An officer can be seen grabbing the student out of her desk, causing the chair to flip over. Once the student is on the ground, the officer can be seen grabbing the student and dragging her for several feet.

The officer then tells the girl to put her hands behind her back. The video stops at that point.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is the agency that has school resource officers at Spring Valley High. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott tells News19 that a disruptive student refused to leave after a teacher asked her to. An administrator was called to the room, and also asked the student to leave, Lott said, and she refused again. Finally, the school resource officer came to the room. Lott said the officer forcibly removed the student and she resisted arrest.

Lott said the child was put under arrest.

News19 reached out to Richland School District Two, who gave the following response:

“We are aware of an incident that occurred today at Spring Valley High School,” the district said in a statement. “Video of it has been posted on social media. The incident is under investigation. We are working closely with the sheriff’s department.”

Nice to see good cops out there keeping our school safe.

She did not follow a lawful order and is lucky to be alive. This will teach her to properly respect authority as incarnated by uniformed white men.

She was probably being a disruptive bitch tho eh?
Obstinate, at the very least.

Seriously.

How annoying must you be for the Cops to be called into the actual classroom? The only Cops I ever saw at school were from D.A.R.E. program, or sometimes they would go pick up kids at the Principal's office.

A third video came out. Nothing to see here folks, looks like the proper way to subdue a teenage girl to me.

But we didn't see what preceded the video. For all we know she made a threatening gesture while disobeying a lawful order. I think the officer was very restrained in his response.
post #3269 of 6095
Probably reached for her waistband. Cop was probably justified in shooting her; he's really a hero for demonstrating such restraint.



Snark aside, if you have a kid who is being disruptive and won't leave, and won't get up out of the desk, what do you do?
post #3270 of 6095
I would have tried pressure points before the desk flip that almost stuck a desk leg into the face of the girl seated behind her.
