White School Resource Officer Tosses Black Girl Like A Rag Doll For Refusing To Leave Class [VIDEO]
A Richland County school resource officer has been placed on administrative duty following an incident at Spring Valley High School that was captured on video and circulated on social media sites. The video purports to show the officer forcibly removing a young woman from her desk and the room.
Lt. Curtis Wilson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department said Monday night that Deputy Ben Fields will not be back at any school pending the results of an investigation.
In the video, a female student can be seen sitting in her chair in a classroom where several other students are present. An officer can be seen grabbing the student out of her desk, causing the chair to flip over. Once the student is on the ground, the officer can be seen grabbing the student and dragging her for several feet.
The officer then tells the girl to put her hands behind her back. A second, shorter video shows the officer restraining the girl.
Sheriff Leon Lott, whose agency is in charge of the school resource program at Spring Valley, told WLTX-TV that the student refused to leave after a teacher asked her to. An administrator was called to the room and also asked the student to leave, Lott said, and she refused again. Finally, the school resource officer came to the room. Lott said the officer forcibly removed the student, and she resisted.
