The San Antonio Independent School District has launched an investigation into a videotaped incident in which a school district police officer body slammed a girl to the ground. Footage shows the officer, identified as Joshua Kehm, picking up and tossing an unnamed 12-year-old female student to the pavement at Rhodes Middle School. A spokeswoman for the school said the incident began when the girl and another student were arguing. Kehm has been placed on paid administrative leave while officials probe the situation.
I am damn sick and tired of seeing videos like this where full grown men uses unnecessary levels of force to subdue children.
I work with troubled children with special needs almost every day of my life, and I would NEVER do something like this.
We have strict protocols for when and how to put our hands on a child, and police officers assigned to schools should have the same training and the same restrictions.
I hope they fire this son-of-a-bitch.
