So a girl is running late for class and decides to use an elevator.

A teacher makes her take the stairs to her 6th floor classroom.

The girl decides to hang around, and the teacher calls the school police.

That's when the fireworks started.

The video shows an alarming confrontation......


School police pepper spray student over ‘expired elevator pass’


Detroit Public Schools officials contend a school police officer who shoved, kicked, dragged and pepper sprayed a 15-year-old female student “followed proper procedures” for handling unruly students.

Cass Technical High School sophomore Destiny Heard was late to class in December and attempted to ride the school’s elevator without a valid elevator pass, and a teacher forced her to take the stairs to her sixth-floor classroom instead, Vice.com reports.

Heard did not immediately go to the stairwell and allegedly lingered by the elevator, so the teacher involved called a school security officer to ensure she didn’t attempt to ride without a proper pass. Heard allegedly refused to provide identification to the officer and took the stairs to the second floor, where she was met with another officer and Orlando Bogins, the dean of students, Heard told the news site.

You know black blacks don't like the fairer skinned blacks correct?

I think you need to look harder. You can tell a huge difference in the hue of the skin. She is very light skinned. Look at her hands.

its never about the infraction, its about respect for authority (insert cartman pic here) and how people treat each other

the escalation almost always comes from bad attitudes. I'm not excusing violence in any way shape or form, but just saying this wasn't over an expired pass

A problem I have with this and similar situations, generally categorizable as "cop doing an essentially non-cop job", is that they rarely seem to be able to distinguish between law enforcement and the job they're doing. i.e. is is school policy or city ordinance about the elevator? A cop cannot enforce school policy with his delegated authority. That only obtains when they are enforcing the law. But school policy is NOT law. Neither is Walmart policy, or Target, or any other business the cop's moonlighting at. If I fail to obey a football stadium policy that is not law, under what authority can the cop do ANYTHING?

At best, and only if he's actually been authorized to do so by the legitimate owner of the property beforehand, he can trespass me. But he has to give me reasonable time to leave.

You see this issue a lot with campus cops. I've seen several schools where the local gendarmerie think they are the legal muscle of a particular Dean or coach.

Back in the day, when I was in HS, it was a 3 floor building. There were elevators for use by handicapped students/faculty (as well as injured, i.e. on crutches, etc..). The "pass" was a key card allowing you to use the elevator. Since it was for handicapped or injured people, its availability at any given time was imperative. If any student was to use it then it would not be available for the rightful users. Follow me so far?

Well, if caught using it without a key card (or as a verified assistant to a valid user) you would merely get an hour of detention at the end of the day. This escalation of "authority" in this case is, IMO, unacceptable. This is not the streets, but supposed to be a place if learning. This would have been an opportunity to teach the student why a pass is needed, and the benefit of being punctual.
