Deputy Ben Fields was caught on camera at Spring Valley High School in Columbia ordering a student out of her seat. The imposing officer, who is a powerlifter in his free time, stands over her desk and tells the student, "either you're coming with me or I'll make you." Without giving her time to get up, he grabs her and flips her over, slamming her, and her desk, onto the ground.

The veteran officer then drags her out of her chair and tossed her across the room, as students watched speechlessly. The deputy pinned the senior student down as he puts her hands behind her back. He tells another student, "I'll put you in jail next."


South Carolina school officer caught on video beating down student in arrest

I feel like a broken record sometimes when I post these videos, but they need to be seen. We can't just ignore this epidemic that's going on with police brutality. Ironically another thread was just posted that covers the "Youtube Effect" which officers are complaining about. I watched the CNN analysis and the guy actually defends the officer, and doesn't seem to think the officers behavior is inappropriate. The officer is apparently a power lifter, yet still has to use excessive force. Some people have to beat up the weak in order to feel powerful, and this career attracts sociopaths. I don't think people realize that throwing someone around is not a joke, especially someone this young who could have vertebrae in their neck fractured.

Teenagers are hard to deal with, but if i did this to my daughter every time she threw a temper tantrum i would be arrested for domestic battery.

He must have felt so big throwing that kid around the classroom like that. What a power trip! Let's not try to settle this non-violently, let's just grab the kid around the neck then slam him backwards into the ground, desk and all.

What a douche. I hope he gets punished for this.

Police said the student was under arrest for refusing to the leave the classroom after being disruptive.

.... Huh, seems a bit drastic.
Think an administrator, like the vice principle or student counselor would have been a better figure to come.

Really is a disturbing video.

You can pick someone up without throwing them. Especially if you're a powerlifter.

The worst offense to a Cop may not actually involve breaking any laws, but to show any signs real or imagined of being disrespectful .

Unless this kid is 18, which is possible I suppose since she is a senior, this guy should be charged with assault of a minor. Plain and simple. An adult cannot put their hands on a kid in an aggressive manner anymore. The only exception being self defense, and this kid was obviously making no move or physical threat to that officer.

Sure, I'm sure the kid might be a punk or bad/disruptive student, but the cops handling of the situation is absolutely uncalled for.

Shame.

all she had to do was leave the class and she decided not to. she is looking to sue the school, the security team and anyone else that is remotely involved with the incident. the time to argue the fairness or lack of fairness isn't at the time of the incident. it's before the school administrator or whoever has authority in this matter. she knew what would happen if she refused to leave when politely asked. i don't feel sorry for her. she chose the path and now she has to walk it to its end. it was planned long before the incident that she would attempt to poke the bear and enter into a lawsuit.

unfortunately the security officer, the teacher and the school staff will now be involved in a law suit because of the decision of this kid to "fight the power!"

So you think choke slamming her and dragging her across the floor was justified? The guy was twice her size, he could have handled it a lot better than he did.

No, but I think that when you are asked to get out of your seat you should. I mean, what I saw was a bunch of kids listening because someone had the balls to get the kid out of their seat.

When I was in school if you got in trouble in school you were in more trouble when you got home.

Clearly there are some people on ATS who should not be in positions of authority.

He could have killed her. You don't excuse this type of behavior in civilized society and you sure as hell don't do it.

yes.

all she had to do was leave when asked. simple. all of the drama could have been avoided. she made the decision to test the system and the system responded. she knew, as well as the entire school know the consequences of this type of action.

But she didn't, so does that excuse the officers actions?

That is the topic, not the actions of the KID but of the grown ass man that manhandled her.

Care to address that part?
To me it seems you have no issues with it, is that accurate?
That is not the accepted response to refusing to leave like you are trying to say, that is a very ignorant statement imo.
