So I had the displeasure of being notified of an event by CNN.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says the officer was removing a student who was disruptive and refused to leave class.

-AP

So the officer drops the desk backwards like he's a WWE wrestler, and then he throws the girl around the classroom, and then arrests her after making sure she really felt it...right. No excessive force here. So Don Lemon has the gall to say that we don't know everything that happened - so we shouldn't be quick to judge the actions. There was no physical resistance that would require that. If she didn't get up, you make her stand up, and you walk her out. You don't drop her and throw her around. That pissed me off - that this guy really thinks there's a remote possibility of there being justification.

And if I was the teacher, I would've assaulted that officer for doing that.

And "charged with disrupting schools" is the biggest piece of bullsh!t you can come up with.

It's only in this forum because he works on a news network. This incident specifically pisses me off to no end.

I was trying to lighten the atmosphere.

What was the officer supposed to do? Box with her until she fell out of the desk?

She started a violent confrontation, he ended it quickly and in a way that minimized the threat to his person and to hers.

As somebody who has buried himself I. All things police, I can tell you he did make a mistake. Don't get me wrong, his use of force was justified. Getting her out of that desk was going to look ugly, no matter how he did it. The mistake he made was not clearing out the classroom first. It's the policy of most department's to clear out that classroom, before using that force. Had the class been cleared out like it should have been, no footage of this incident would exist.

She started a violent confrontation, he ended it quickly and in a way that minimized the threat to his person and to hers.

I challenge anybody on DDO to get me out of a desk like that, without it looking ugly, especially while I'm flailing and throwing punches. It can't be done. I'm not being a tough guy either, any 12 year old can say the same thing.

As somebody that's anti police it hurts me to defend cops, but their opposition is so blinded by emotion and literally have no stomach for violence, so it forces me to defend people I hate

It's true that we don't know what happened.
First of all, the cop was there because the school called him, right? That means that the disturbance made by the student (I couldn't tell the student's race by the video, just so you know) must've been pretty bad and they must've been unable to remove her by means of police assistance.
Was the cop's approach rough? Sure, nobody's denying that. Was its roughness sign that it was poor behavior on the part of the cop? Not necessarily. Sometimes rougher measures are needed and deserved, especially if you resist. It's pretty obvious that the student wasn't going to voluntarily go with the cop.
People today are probably a bit oversensitive about anything that causes pain for any reason. Just saying.

If people baby misbehaving students like what the protesters of this would want, it sends a completely wrong message to them. If you're interfering with a classroom's normal learning process and you refuse to leave and you refuse to submit when the cop enters the room, but instead you violently resist the cop, he's well within his rights to do what was done in the video if it means getting the job done.
