Why does the sheriff department send white officers to black schools to see about a black student who is being disruptive? Why can't they send the approperate office because of color? Writer one

Many people wish Officer Fields the best of luck and hope that he soon secures another position.

Schools should learn from this incident to always send at least two burly officers to deal with defiant "students."

No one (except those who are familiar with American secondary public [non-private] schools in the large cities) can possibly imagine the verbal and physical abuse experienced by many teachers (and that goes unreported in the media).

American teachers in large American cities are genuine heroes, who deserve the most generous salaries and pension benefits possible.

I do not know what sort of people wish this of a police officer who "was caught on camera slamming the pupil to the ground at her school in South Carolina after she refused to leave the classroom.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said that Mr Fields' actions were "unacceptable" as the girl posed no threat to anyone".

Far away is close at hand in images of elsewhere – The Master of Paddington.

If you watch the longer video (which shows what happened earlier) there was no 'physical or verbal abuse' from the girl.

She was in the wrong - that's true. She was using her mobile phone, which was apparently disturbing other students. You don't see that on the video.

However, when the security-guard spoke to her, she ignored him - no verbal abuse, nothing. Then he simply attacked her.

There are a couple of points which I (as a security guard myself) have on this:

1. How come a male guard went to handle a girl? That is asking for trouble. Anywhere there are girls to handle needs female guards.
2. Was he not trained? Part of guard training is how to remove someone from the premises. This does not include violence. It does not include touching the person at all (unless they actually physically attack you first - which is a failure on your part anyway).
3. If he were to physically force her to leave, it should simply involve getting hold of her belt and collar - she's not a little girl, but he must weigh twice as much as her. It would be easy to 'frog-march' her out of the room.

That was simply an example of uncontrolled violence and, if it were me who had been caught on camera, I would expect not only to lose my job - I would also lose my qualifications ever to be a guard again (part of the qualifications are 'no criminal record') - as I'd expect to end up charged with criminal assault. That is what it was.

He does not deserve to have a job as a security guard.
