Allowing students to run free and do as they please, disrupt classes as they choose, and just be general douches just because they can be is just one more sign of the decline of this grand American Experiment.

it's par for the course.
the girl and her family will hold a press conference, the news outlets will sensationalize the situation to sell ad time and get web site hits. lawyers will speak to how traumatized their client is. it happens time and time again.
“He picked a student up, and he threw the student across the room; that is not a proper technique,” Sheriff Leon Lott of Richland County said at a news conference
"Deputy Ben Fields did wrong this past Monday, so we’re taking responsibility for that.”
he described the decision to fire the deputy as one that “was very evident.”
department officials conducted an internal review that, according to the sheriff, found that Deputy Fields had used a maneuver that violated the agency’s training and procedural standards
So I just have a few questions for every single person that has been defending fields' behaviour.
1. Do you still think his actions were justified?
2. If yes, then why? He was dismissed for violating procedure so what makes you think your decision should overrule a sheriff and other department officials?

That's right and unfortunately the reflected numbers are probably correct. In the whole class you have about 2 fighters. 2 people using their own mind rather than letting some authority use it for them. Which means if fit hits the shan you better watch your butt, because most likely nobody else is going to watch it for ya.
Texting isn't disruptive ... Like hell, lady, it's disrespectful and I guarantee your little darlin' isn't learning anything while she's absorbed in cyber space. So it's definitely disrupting her education.
So I have to ask all the people who defend her:
Why are so quick to defend her as though she is blameless? Do what you were asked to do, put away your freakin' phone, and you wouldn't have seen the cop in your face in the first place.
It's not like anyone asked her to do anything racist or horrible.
And yet no one can answer the question; what do you do to stop behavior like this when there is this new staunch no-contact policy in effect? They did all they could do before calling the SFO, and he did his job, albeit in an aggressive manner.

I don't understand why the girl isn't being charged with disrupting the classroom, being expelled, and being put into a classroom environment more to her standard.
