Spring Valley school officer caught on video slamming South Carolina student to ground during arrest; officer pulled from school
A South Carolina sheriff's deputy has been pulled from the school where he worked as a resource officer after video showed him slamming a student to the ground while classmates watched in horror.
Deputy Ben Fields was caught on camera at Spring Valley High School in Columbia ordering a student out of her seat. The imposing officer, who is a powerlifter in his free time, stands over her desk and tells the student, "either you're coming with me or I'll make you." Without giving her time to get up, he grabs her and flips her over, slamming her, and her desk, onto the ground.
Welcome to the school of hard knocks, where if you don't follow the rules you'll get face-planted.
She wasn't staying it her seat to learn, she was staying in it to be spiteful. This holds up the class from learning and for that I have zero sympathy for her. Was it too much force? No. Better to be quick like this instead of slowly which would give her time to grab hold of objects that make it harder for the officer.
