Surprised nobody has discussed this on here yet - or did I miss it?
Lady in diner this morning was telling everyone around her how shocked and outraged she was about this. I told her that I agreed, and that the cop should have just used a billy club upside the girl's head instead. Oops! lady was mad at the cop! Oh well, I made my point, and got her blood pressure up.
....waffle house drama....
A little over board for a 14 yo refusing to give up her cell phone don't ya think?
How often do you beat your kids?
She's a kid, the cop was supposed to be the adult, instead he was an amateur, ticking time bomb, poorly trained, potentially psychopath, a child.
He was fired today. Evil man, poor child.
A large majority of our younger people are going down a bad road and it's sad.
I'm with duck on the paddle but it'll never happen.
Cyclist - really? I hope your just yanking chains... She is not a kid...she's a young adult and should be arrested, expelled and sued.
I for one am getting tired of this nonsense. Cop was wrong but we've taught our children to be this way.
Curious - so the body slam was wrong I agree. How else should it have been handled?
DESTROYING FISHERMEN AND THEIR COMMUNITIES SINCE 1976
And I am also curious, what should have they done? Walk away? Call parents to come get her? Dismiss class and wait for them to show up?

I am not a police fan at all, but ****, if the man tells you to do something you better well start doing it! The guy is getting railroaded and I hope he has a strong union. Which is something else I don't really like.
Chubs and more of his liberal vomit
Me too. lol
That's all it took to get my undivided attention.
Do you know how many caucasian kids I've seen "jacked" by school security over the years?....Well...If I was standing there nekid...and counted everything sticking out.....it would be over "21".....:grin
Come on guys......none of you "criers :cry" has yet to say what you would do if it was up to you being the officer....nor have any of you gave your plan and time limit.....step by step....
Let's make it real simple....(1)...ask her to come with you to office.....she says "FU"...NO!...(2) clear the class room (3) call for backup (4) with backup in place ask her one more time to get up and comply....60 seconds later she gets cuffed...and it's up to her what level of restraint is applied....
Got a problem with it?
He is in a current court case for excessive force, court date in January, he has had a previous court case for excessive force.
Psycolist may be right on this one, time bomb. Just a matter of time before he went off and the explosion was much bigger.
Doesn't anyone have the ability to diffuse a situation anymore?
I would have squatted down next to her, asked her what was wrong and if there was anything I could do to help. Who knows what this girl was going through. Maybe she is a victim on being molested, maybe someone she loved killed themselves recently, maybe she was thinking of being the one killing themselves.
**** is wrong with you people.
Ever hear of compassion?
What do you think Jesus would have done?
So what she was texting during class, her loss if she wasn't listening. Maybe she can listen and text at the same time, maybe she was texting what was being said, you know, taking notes. Surely some of you remember taking notes. (maybe not)
My son takes his notes on his phone, every day. Takes pictures of what is being put on the board... He uses the technology he has available to do the best he can.
Some cop ever put his hands on my son for that and that cop would find out what a mistake that was, real fast.
How about the other girl that spoke up? She was exercising her 1st amendment rights and got arrested too.
I hope the school system and the city that owns it goes bankrupt for what happened, the teacher ends up being a greeter at Wal-Mart, the cop a fry-cook at McD's and the school superintendent a crossing guard.
Ohhhh, the sheriff said, lets see the video. Cop doesn't have video? Oh well.
Yeah, I had a couple of bad *** teachers in school too, one threw me around pretty good once. I placed an arrow with my name on it 6" over his head while he sat on a deer stand, when confronted about it I told him I didn't miss where I was aiming. I met up with another in a parking lot, he shouldn't have drank so much, hit his head when he fell on his car.
Then I went into the Marines and excelled.
Now I'm gentle as a lamb, with a camera.
You're probably right. That's the reality of the situation.
Should it be that way?
Oh stop it "TS"...
So you would have "squatted down" next to her huh?
...and what would you have done when she shoved a ball point pen into one of your eyes?............hahahahahahaha...:rotflmao
You should thank your lucky F-ing stars that you never wore a badge and had to make real "life decisions" that could have easily turned into "death situations" because of your inability to make "rational and reasonable decisions" with people who's only decision is to do what they want ....when they want to do it....without any care of people around them and the laws that govern this land.
Hey...how's about this.....make a federal law that there are to be NO CELL PHONES in any school?
I actually do not have a cell phone today.....I most assuredly didn't have one when I went to school ....some years back I got rid of my two cell phones and two pagers...and I've been ok without them...
The whole process needs to be videotaped for informational purposes. And future legal proceedings.
And give the little angel a hug.
Awesome story. Got any more?
Why didn't he shoot you right between your insane eyes?
...or at least call law enforcement to do it for him?
You think you know so much, that's why they probably called you pig, they probably still do.
I did wear a badge and with it I dealt with badder azzes than you encountered, I am sure. I knew for a fact that everyone I encountered was a fighter and had probably killed people, and most were drunk before I got involved. Everyone I had to deal with wanted to do what they wanted, when they wanted and with very little care about the people around them or what the consequences of their actions would be.
I doubt you could have done what I did.
She was a 14 year old girl.
It figures that you couldn't handle her, that you would be afraid she may hurt you with her ball point pen.
What a manly man.
Good for you and your no phone, probably why you know so little and communicate so poorly.
...booze and drugs talking....
