Yeah well if the kid had made any threatening move maybe the cop would have to use force but give me a break, Who the hell has made disobedience to authority such a damn crime? Think about it? So the kid acts up and gets expelled for two weeks or something like that. Obviously the kid needed counseling for her home situation (according to her classmate's comment that she had no one).
Oh wait we can't afford interesting schools or desks with laptop computers. We teach to test not to learn. Counseling? We only talk about counseling after a Columbine. Btw would you want to send your kid to that school after this?
So she didn't obey. Is it just me or has a fascistic mentality overtaken America where if you aren't rich (and your parents' lawyer would sue) then you had better just obey without question...without rights. You are of the underclass not the overlords.
She committed no crime by disobeying. People should remember that. They was no cause for such brutal treatment of a kid. Do you think she'll forget about it or do only rich people suffer psychological trauma?
I agree he shouldn't be in the job... but I bet the wealthy are saying that the kid should have just obeyed (but would have said that there was no call for such behavior from a police officer if it were their kid).
