school

Churchill, PA — There’s probably no better example of why the government needs to get out of the business of education than the following ongoing story taking place at Pittsburgh’s Woodland Hills High School. The school’s resource officer, from the Churchill Police Department, was caught on film assaulting a student in a physical altercation which appears to be one-sided.

In 2015, Officer Steve Shaulis can be seen on video approaching Ahmad Williams, 15, who was seated quietly it seems, holding only his folder and a writing utensil. Shaulis takes Wade by the wrist, puts him in an armbar, reverses his arm behind his back and then applies a choke hold.

Possibly aware of the camera’s existence, Shaulis then takes Williams down a darkened hallway where he then picks up the young teenager and slams him to the ground. Williams alleges the officer slammed him on hands, injuring them. The principal, Kevin Murray then comes over and pushes Williams’ head to the ground. Shaulis then tazes Williams three times.

Advertisment

Now, the officer has been reassigned pending an internal investigation. Many who’ve seen the video have already concluded their own investigation and they believe the officer should be criminally charged. And now that the FBI is investigating the incident, it’s likely Officer Shaulis will find himself in court, instead of the teenager, he charged with resisting arrest, something he clearly wasn’t doing. His attorney, Todd Hollis, made the following statement.

Too much has happened at Woodland Hills High School in the past six months for this to be ignored.

The attack is the latest incident at Allegheny County Schools’ Woodland Hills High, but it’s not the first. Apparently, two other students have come forward with similar stories of heavy-handedness followed by bogus charges to support and defend the officer’s and the administration’s actions. Hollis claims:

Four kids have been injured as a result of some conduct by one or more administrators at the high school

In 2016, the school’s principal, who’s also the school’s football coach, Kevin Murray, was recorded threatening an unidentified student. On no less than four occasions, Murray promised to punch the student in the mouth and knock out his teeth if he misbehaved again in school.

While Murray made his comments “man to man,” he was, in fact, dealing with a teenager, not a man, and was accused in a criminal complaint of threatening, bullying, harassing, and intimidating the student. The school district investigated the incident but cleared Murray of all wrongdoing and reinstated his position as principal, following a paid leave of absence.

Now it’s the school district, the police department, the FBI, and the district attorney’s office that’s headed back out to the school to now investigate the school’s law enforcement official.

But enforcing the law wasn’t what Shaulis was doing that day, it appears. Subduing an already subdued and compliant student, slamming him to the ground, and causing physical harm to the student will not make that individual trust police.

On the contrary, as the incident can now be seen by every student in the school, the chances are that more members of the student body will now fear the police, as well as school officials who may be inclined to call them, when an incident arises. Hollis attempted to put the incident into perspective by saying:

How hard does a person have to hit a child to knock their teeth completely out of their mouth?…What does a child have to do to justify that response? Idon’t care about the phone…This is a 14-year-old child. This is not a grown man. This is a school where we send our kids to.

Attorney Phil DiLucente, Principal Murray’s attorney, attempted to exculpate his client from the incident, even though Hollis said the principal and another officer were present and did nothing to help the child. “My client was not involved in the incident and casting his name in this light with respect to the alleged incident is not only inflammatory, but completely unnecessary and only done to damage his reputation,” Mr. DiLucente said in a statement. But DiLucente’s statement is inaccurate at best. Murray actually can be seen in the video helping Shaulis to taser Williams. In other words, Shaulis and Murray ganged up on Williams in an apparent assault on the child.

Mr. Hollis said both Officer Shaulis and the principal need to fired. “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” he said. “This tells me there’a problem at Woodland Hills High School that needs to be corrected.”

But the most egregious actions attributable to Shaulis happened last month. Que’Chawn Wade, another student, in April was asked to come to the office at Shaulis’ request. Shaulis was investigating the case of a missing cell phone. The officer reportedly told Wade he was responsible for the phone. Wade walked out into the hallway. Shaulis then allegedly called Wade a “f’ing faggot” supposedly overheard by another student.

Shaulis then grabbed Wade, dragging him back through the waiting area into his office. He apparently threw Wade against the wall, against a chair and then to the ground, all the while being punched on his waist and back of the head. The officer, who claimed Wade was resisting arrest, then mounted Wade MMA style and punched out his front teeth. The attack wasn’t caught on film but the initial encounter was, apparently showing Wade with his hands up, being compliant with the officer’s authority and commands. Hollis told reporters his client will have to have four more dental surgeries to ensure the tooth stays in place.

    The only menace i see is the cop ,wouldn’t let him babysit my dog. he is a danger to that school and the community .bad mistake putting cops in schools . 99% of the time they’ll abuse their power . and the school admin. is at fault too. just because they give up the responsibility to the police for sec. and safety, doesn’t mean they aren’t accountable for the students well being ect.

    “My client was not involved in the incident and casting his name in this light with respect to the alleged incident is not only inflammatory, but completely unnecessary and only done to damage his reputation,”

    It’s pretty easy to tell who’s lying about their “involvement” in this incident. *checks the video* At 0:29, a couple of dudes in white shirts and ties come wandering up. One dives in and “helps” the officer further subdue a child was almost certainly bleeding profusely at this point. The other just stands there and watches, so unless NEITHER of these men are the principal in question, he was very much “involved” in this incident. Standing idly by and letting it happen is exactly the same as egging it on.

    All three of these men should be fired, arrested for assault, and personally bankrupted in the inevitable civil suit. Let’s see how our usual parade of boot-licking copsuckers try to spin this one. I think the best they’ll be able to muster is to remind us all that “most cops are good, honest people” and “a few bad apples is nothing to worry about.” Actually, the phrase goes “a few bad apples will spoil the whole barrel,” but apparently that’s too much for some people to remember. That’s scientifically as well as metaphorically true. Something about the acids excreted by a rotting apple causes the nearby apples to start rotting prematurely, and so on until you’ve got a whole barrel of worthless apples all because you listened to some twatgoblin who told you that a few bad apples shouldn’t affect how you treat ALL of them!

      • Mike

        Well Jimmy I guess if it were up to you, we would still be under British rule! Our founding fathers gave us certain rights, and when police abuse those rights and violate the law, we have the right to resist. The cop is a coward pussy who should be arrested and charged with assault of a child.

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          He’s just trolling – look at his account, FFS.

      • Sammy2014

        Did you see the arm around the boy’s neck? What kind of tactic is that? One meant to get him slammed when he tries to get the cop’s arm off his neck? And then throw him in jail for trying to remove arms from his neck? The cop’s tactics are the problem.

          wish we could here it :/ I mean I can see he is “arguing” he obviously said shit that they couldn’t take… I mean being an adult means you can handle kids when they talk shit… That is just showing us the fail-to-be-a-cop is using his emotions to attack even more so… doesn’t it? I mean by the end of it the kids is listening sitting not even pacing (im assuming because he is anxious over what ever just happened prior to being sent to the office)

          • i’m pretty sure he was in the office for defending a friend … verbally defending

      • Aeir

        its ok that you like abusing children. but just because thats you in the video doesnt mean your comment means anything thanks

      • Bud

        So? This kind of response by the officer and principal would not seem to be warranted. Cuffing the formerly-fighting student and escorting him to a police vehicle would seem to have been sufficient.
        P.S. If you mean fighting against the police officer and/or the principal? Well, if you were being viciously beaten would you not at least make an attempt at defending yourself? I have not and will not watch the video, so it’s not clear when you claim that the student “was fighting.”

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          In a rare deviation from my usual policy – which mirrors your own – I watched it myself and can assure you that this kid was NOT fighting at all, not even in self-defense. This guy is just being a troll.

  • Philip Tomlins

    Can honestly say, that if that was my child, they would need to regularly be looking over their shoulder.

  • Daryl Kwas

    They will say he resisted when the resource officer went to grab his arm in the beginning of the video. They will say all bets are off at that point and he should have simply “obeyed” whatever the resource officer said. Since we can’t hear any audio they will also say he was being told in a calm voice to put away what he was doing and come with him and got an attitude and thus it’s all his fault. Then after being choked and slammed down it was again his fault for flailing his arms in agony and possibly from not being able to breath and again it’s his fault from the get-go. Let’s see how many other ways this student didn’t listen and blame him for everything else that happened to him as I’m sure we’ll hear it all. This is the way students are supposed to be treated, like criminals in prison as we all know school is prep for prison in communities of color. Get indoctrinated to the system and the revolving door of incarceration early then they can keep the for-profit jails in business. Heck of a business model. Why should any administrator have to deal with defiance? Why should anyone deal with questions for silly little students? Why should anyone have to deal with misbehaving young people at all? I mean aren’t they all grown up at age 14 anyway? Sarcasm aside, how about dealing with children in a non-violent way until there’s no other choice? Why is violence the 1st choice in a lot of cases when it comes to dealing with kids in schools? Are you going to tell me that it’s only now in the last 15 years that we MUST do this? What happened in the 100+ years kids have been going to school in the US where violence wasn’t an option? Did we just throw up our hands and let unruly kids or kids who question authority just get their way? I don’t think so. We handled those situations in a manner that was more respectful, more hands on, and more involved with the parents. Now-a-days it’s lock them up, don’t have time for that nurturing stuff anymore. And if you mess up more than once, throw away the keys and forget these young delinquents as they’re bound for a life of crime anyway. Again, sarcasm inserted.

  • Sammy2014

    I am compliant to law enforcement, but if they start escalating and putting me in a chokehold unnecessarily, self defence is going kick in. I am going to pull his arms away from my neck.
    Their tactics are an absolute failure and the cause so much escalation, unwarranted resisting arrest charges, injuries, and death,

    • Zackknowitall

      Look that’s a bad idea that will lead to death or a long prison stent.

      If you are so fed up with life or freedom that you are willing to fight back don’t. Just comply and ambush later when you have the upper hand is what some might say.

      • Sammy2014

        It is not an idea, it is what humans do when someone places their arms around your neck. I have a great idea. Tell cops to keep their hands off people’s necks, so we don’t have to take them off.

      • Sammy2014

        “If I am so fed up with life or freedom”
        Did I say that? No! I love life so much that I am going to take his hands off my neck. It is natural. I think you should be speaking out that if he wants his life and freedom, he should keep his hands off people’s necks!

        • Zackknowitall

          My point is fighting back on the spot will lead to death. Some would say try to take a few with you. So run away to fight another day.

          • Sammy2014

            Don’t you understand? You can’t. Your neck is on the line. I wouldn’t be worried about anything except for getting the cop’s hands off my neck. I’m not wanting to fight today or another day. I’m needing to get his hands off my neck. Cops need to change their tactics.

          • Sammy2014

            When cops act with thuggery, they lose your trust right away rightfully. You know you are not dealing with someone being humane or lawful, so you are scared and need to get his arm from around your neck for self -preservation.

          • Sammy2014

            it is just ridiculous to argue that a child shouldn’t remove a cop’s arms from his neck because that will get a child (or adult) death. If that’s the way it is, then there needs to be major reform, because that is downright despicable/evil. Good people WILL take cop’s hands off their necks, and children and adults do not deserve death for it.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            That doesn’t sound like the Zack we all know, but I’m not complaining – this is MUCH wiser advice than your usual exercise in unnervery.

          • Zackknowitall

            Same Zack I’m just saying make it count

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            You’re right. Pick your battles – big enough to matter, but small enough to win.

          • letting ’em choke you will also lead to death . duh

          • Zackknowitall

            I would 100% kill anyon trying to choke me to death. I don’t care if it a cop or a thug. Plus if i die more than a few ppl will get even.

          • in this story, the cop is a thug

          • Zackknowitall

            In every story the cop is the thug

          • Bud

            In the case of your post you are not only not a knowitall you are a knownothing.

          Also they will have back up coming quickly to help fuck you up.

          • Sammy2014

            Yep, and that’s part of their bad tactics. They drive you to have to pull their arms off your neck and then blame you for it. It’s despicable.

      • whaaaat? so, if you’re being choked to death, just comply and die? no

    • Jimmy Pearson

      The kid was resisting and fighting the officer.

      • Sammy2014

        Like I said. ‘If a police officer put me in a chokehold, I would remove his hands from my neck, too. The police’s tactics are the problem.

      • Mike

        Everyone has the right to resist being killed, it’s instinct to resist, but this kid was not doing anything that called for the force of the cop. I hope and pray this POS cop ends up dead in the gutter like the trash he is, and I hope he suffers. BAN COPS FROM SCHOOLS!!!!

        • Bud

          No, we do need police officers in school. Just not this one. Just like I would have voted for a woman for president. Just not that one.

          • Mike

            We did not need cops in school when I went in the 70’s & 80’s, so why do we need them now? If there is a matter where the cops are needed just call them, they do not need to be stationed at the school, a social worker of mediator would be of more value and would not resort to violence to solve problems!

      • Linda Ekey Sunderman

          Point right 🙂 Fuck yeah if somebody came up an choked me out when I was just sitting there I would think I was about to die so yes I would fight for my life by human instinct…. If the fool who thought they could kill me died… (or killed me because I figured they already were trying to kill me) that would be on them… (or me)… An you can see how they take him down the hall to be off camera :/ fucking ass wholes!

        It ok we get it you failed out or dropped out of cop school but just because you think its cool to attack a child, over some pathetic dick not being big enough problem, doesnt mean it is. Ok?
        I mean once the officers go into your house an see the shit im sure you are ok with… sorry man, but what i hear happens to those kinds of dips aint pretty… keep it tight im sure it wont be to long before somebody rips you up.

    • Brett Ray

      Every arrest now has a “resisting” charge with it, even if you don’t. I really love the old “arrested for resisting arrest game”. That makes zero sense except to a cop. It gives them more leverage to get you to accept a plea deal. Even if you didn’t do anything and they know it. Here is what happened to me that got a bunch of charges put on me, including “resisting and obstruction” along with many more. Tell me if you see us go to the ground fighting like they said in their report. This happened right before they “subdued” me. LOL https://youtu.be/tNtMRfJz1T0

      • Sammy2014

        No, there was no ground fighting. It’s evil when they lie in their investigations or try to get witnesses to say what they want.

      • Brett Ray

        Of course, they didn’t know I had video of it. So they lied, lied, lied. They said “who are they going to believe you, or me”?

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          Don’t leave us hanging, man! What ended up happening?

      • i actually argued this in court once, and won . prosecutor was trying to get me to plead to ‘resisting’ with a promise to drop ‘trespassing’ (i was at my job, where i had the keys and a contract) …

  • Mary Kay Baker

    This boy did nothing to deserve this. It would be bad if this was an adult. The fact it is a child makes it even worse. This child was compliant.. Putting people in a chokehold is something you should never do unless necessary. This was completely unnecessary

    • Jimmy Pearson

      I am not a fan of the police but what I saw this kid was not compliant.

      • Mike

        So I guess if a cop told you to get on your knees and give him oral sex, you would comply with a smile, and from the sounds of it probably ask him if his buddies in blue want to join in also. You don’t deserve to call yourself an American! Cops don’t belong in schools…period!!!

      • Sammy2014

        I am compliant, but if some cop puts his arms on my neck, I am taking them off!

      • Sammy2014

        The cop was not compliant with the constitution by putting the kid in a chokehold before the kid was not compliant by trying to get away from the chokehold. You ARE licking so boots! Horrible!

  • Jimmy Pearson

    I do not know the whole story but the kid was fighting the officer in the little bit of video I just saw.

    • Sammy2014

      In the same video you saw, a cop walked up to a boy in a chair, took him by the hand, the boy stood up and was put in a headlock. Unnecessary and excessive. I would try to take his arm off my neck too. Tooth knocked out and body slammed. Horrible!

      • that wasn’t a headlock . that was a CHOKE HOLD

        • Sammy2014

          Yes, you are right. It was a chokehold.

    • Angie Ziegler

      I’m sorry.. But isn’t the normal human reaction when your put into a choke hold is to fight back. There isn’t one person on this earth that will just give up when their being choked.. This cop had no right doing what he did. It’s called power rush. Officers are put there to deescalate situations. Not put teens into a choke hold.
      Resistance means there wasn’t compliance beforehand.. Looks like he was sitting on that chair calmly waiting.. Compliance is putting your hands in the air when ur told to do so. and resistance is not when you decide to fight back when u have a gun to the back of your head.

  • ties

    I am sure this poor accent boy did nothing….And it was because he was black….. And when the policeman gets of work he raps puppies in plastic and beats them….. Very good and responsible reporting….. I will never listen to the Freethoughtproject.com propaganda again…..this is crap

    • Sammy2014

      Watch the video before calling it propaganda.

      • Domina Elle

        Why didn’t the ‘journalist’ investigate and find that this school in particular has had an ongoing violence problem. Not with cops or staff- but with students and parents? I found pages of reports and fights. Like this one: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/parents-and-students-arrested-after-street-brawls-near-pittsburgh/

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          Because it doesn’t fucking MATTER! You’re acting like because the school had an “ongoing violence problem,” it’s somehow OK for cops to just burst into the room snatching kids up for No. Fucking. Reason. Basically, you’re saying that this kid deserves to be punished for going to a “bad school.” Sorry, kiddo, but there’s violence around here, so let’s just go ahead and kick the shit out of you now before anyone (who matters) gets hurt.

          Trust me, Sister – someone in our line of work does NOT want to support and/or condone a police state. Do you know what they do to whores? I do, and it has NOTHING to do with protecting them from violence, or even with protecting society from their perversions. I bet when you’re pulled over, you do NOT tell the officers what you do for a living, so what does that say about your trust in police – that it only exists when other people’s asses are on the line?

        • the journalist wasn’t writing a story about problems with students at this school . the story is about VIOLENT thug cop in the school putting a kid in a CHOKE HOLD, knocking out teeth of a kid, threatening t knock out teeth of another kid

          wow

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            I can’t help but wonder if she’d be OK with cops kicking down her door and beating the shit out of her because she lives in a “high-crime neighborhood.” I have nothing but disgust for the kind of hypocrites who only trust in the cops when it’s “those people” who have to bear all the risk and consequences of a police state. I’d bet everything I own that she doesn’t ever tell ANY cop she speaks to that she’s a dominatrix. (No need to ask why.)

        • Sammy2014

          This story is about a cop violating a boys’ civil rights.

  • Not pro Israel

    Day after day, they beat our children in their schools, and our streets, and in our homes, wherever they want, they beat our children. You could be arrested for slapping your child in the face in public but a police officer can put your child’s teeth out and be sent on a paid vacation. Now a normal human being would not accept that and would Revolt violently against those terms and conditions for their existence https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9644fbb75d665f612872c08bc457a38969ad2c084f72ea1d01ba491315a49d64.jpg , but you have been pacified, so you accept it, and you comply. Your children comply. Your pets comply. Yet you all die.

    Is it my imagination? It looks to me like the man (I’m choking on that) who came out from the end of the hallway (possibly the principal?) kicked this young man, twice?

    • Domina Elle

      That school has major problems google it. This report from a few years back talks about TWO major brawls involving dozens of students AND PARENTS one with over 60 people. Apparently that school has a violence problem that doesn’t begin or end with the cops. Cops who are likely NEEDED. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/parents-and-students-arrested-after-street-brawls-near-pittsburgh/

      • The Cat’s Vagina

        No, they’re most emphatically NOT if this is how they “handle” their issues.

        • Domina Elle

          How are the parents and students ‘handling’ things? Why do police need to be there in the first place?

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Obviously, the police don’t need to be there. They’re there because lazy-ass school officials want the mess they made to be someone else’s problem. Like I said, someone like you might not want to support the idea that cops need to be sent over en masse any time society has the slightest problem. Trust me, karma can be more domineering than you ever THOUGHT of being!

      • Brenda A. Linder

        By all means…. a news article about fights occurring off campus (specific schools were not mentioned, only the district) 4 years ago TOTALLY justifies what one can see in this video. This type of apologists attitude is why the abuse continues. It doesn’t matter if he was a good or bad student, or what this young man may have done last week, let alone what happened on a street nearby 4 years ago. SMDH Nothing about the incident 4 years ago is relevant, nor justifies this abuse.

        • Domina Elle

          You and others here are missing the point. That link is one of MANY incidents that have been ONGOING. It says a lot. You have parents as much of the problem as the students and the cops are. I’m willing to wager I’m more radical regarding my understanding of police abuses and my anger over it than you are. I’ve also myself been the victim of police abuses. Though regardless, I’m not willing to compromise the truth because I realize that sustainable solutions aren’t born out of emotionally driven narratives. I know that sustainable solutions require us to factor in many intersecting aspects. I never once defended the actions of this officer, either. That is you perceiving the what people state and the world through narratives.

          There is a huge problem throughout the USA on school campuses. Of course it’s being shrugged off in a variety of ways. Incidents of mass violence are becoming the new normal. People want to cry about racism being the issue, even when the school in question is predominantly black including its teachers. Pour more money into it everyone says. The learning environment is gone. The students and the parents take zero responsibility. Teachers are being assaulted. It is unreasonable and irrational and frankly immoral to expect that situations such as the above aren’t going to happen under current circumstances: denial.

          It’s not clean cut or black and white. But go ahead keep on with your magical thinking if you want to. Thing is- if you really cared about these kids you’d want to better understand what is actually going on. The problem isn’t just about cops. The cops are brought in because of pre existing conditions. It is a recipe for disaster.

            I am not driven by anyone else’s “narrative.” YOU are missing the point. Plain and simple. We need to stop allowing cops to assault, kill and abuse. Period. They need to be held accountable. I do not need to understand anything more about the background of this school. What these people did is wrong, and others need to stop making excuses for them.

      • Guy

        There’s always something going on in any school in America. Put 500 + kids of any age all together in a closed campus, stand back and watch it happen, you won’t be disappointed.

        My brother went to Richmond HS. here in California in the early 1950’s. Then the boy’s carried switchblade knives, brass knuckles and made zip guns in their spare time. The girls would rip out each others Hooped Earrings if they had a beef over some sort of stupid shit and carried razor blades in their hair, cutting the hell of of each other when in a cat fight !

        My daughter-in-law works now as a school teacher in Alaska, and tells me stories of what the kids do to each other there. Like locking a kid outside when it’s 20 degrees below 0, untill he turns blue, they think it’s funny as shit ! Oh by the way. There are no cops on campus there, they don’t need em,
        because Administration dose the job of HS discipline, with the parents backing em up.

        My point ? Cops are not need on campus, ever. School Administrators with guts, and balls, and strong wills are, with the blessing of parents and not the friggin ACLU !

        • Domina Elle

          You are out of touch. Schools across America are more violent and chaotic than ever before and you are busy minimizing it. Thank goodness teachers in some regions are fighting back. Cops apparently do need to be on campuses, that is the part you don’t get. Do I like it? No. But the teachers getting beaten (even murdered) don’t feel safe. Do your due diligence please.

          teachers deserve to be safe.

          • Guy

            All teachers deserve to be safe, as well as all students too; so if that means no heavy handed, over the top, reacted first with violence and beatings, followed by arrest of student by cop. Then I guess I am out of touch, wondering how in the hell did we make it this far, and at the present rate we all seem to be going in the direction that you think the schools are, when will you vote to put gard stations around em, and start with the K9 patrols ? With names of Liberty and Freedom HS a thing of the past substituted for Auschwitz and Dachau, no doubt in your touch with reality.

          • Domina Elle

            Oh bullshit. My reality isn’t possible on this planet currently and you wouldn’t have the foggiest idea what my world would look like. It’s just too much to ask people to do their due diligence, they love being opinionated based on memes and narratives because it’s simply too hard to actually attempt to analyze the world beyond memes and narratives. I shudder to think of ever having to stand before a jury of my so called peers. Have you ever had your home raided by four different law enforcement agencies over your political views? I know what that’s like. You have no idea who I am or what I believe but asking you to do your due diligence you have me compared to Nazis.

            Philly has huge problems with school violence (one of many disctricts)

            Crap in a hand cart ! Don’t tell me about due diligence, all because you can pass around metaphors like memes and the word narratives like candy. As to your world looking like ? BS ! Mine is reality and having seen and been in it for a very long time, both as a dad and coach to hundreds of kids on and off a playing field, with some who would just as easily cut you gut’s out rather to look at you, if they thought you weren’t being straight up with em ! Reality is a scary as shit place and most of the kids in the inner cities have large doses of it daily, wondering when dad will be home if ever, how are they going to take care of their little brother and finish their homework, and whats for dinner, with a lot getting their meals for free or little cost at school. Then you hit me with kids are suppose to be learning their ethnics at home. What ethnicks would that be ? When the kid dosen’t even have a home, or a bed, or a roof, but just a tarp to sleep under. You may have had some difficulties with the Pd, I’ll give you that, but when it comes time to account for your time in front of your peers. Remember who it is your talking too, fancy words won’t do it for you, even if Philly has a problem or not !

    I did some looking into that district and the school. MAJOR ISSUES. This was one of many reports in the last several years. Wonder how often the teachers there are being attacked. As in physical violence not just verbal. I’m sure it’s chaos in that school. There’s a reason that cop is there in the first place. Where is the measure of responsibility from the community? The parents? The students? The staff probably wants to walk out constantly. Which has happened in a district before- can’t remember if it was philly or Pittsburg but one district lost bunches of teachers who walked off the job the first week because the abuse from the students was so bad. There are issues going on that aren’t being addresed here. Google that school and see for yourself. I’m guessing it’s being blamed on white supremacy and or racism. That’s the usual excuses being given these days. White racism forces them to brawl in groups of 60 students and parents. I wouldn’t doubt it if we could find a bunch of fight videos from that school. Yeah it’s a thing. Humans have breaking points especially when purposely pushed over the edge day after day after day. I don’t excuse this cop but let’s be genuine and find all the facts and circumstances involved. It’s called DUE DILIGENCE. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/parents-and-students-arrested-after-street-brawls-near-pittsburgh/

      When the bell goes on the cats neck and the mice are no longer afraid of the cat, then the results are defanged cat and mice who are dancing in the streets, who will multiply many copies of themselves all of the same thinking.

      Children are taught at a early age about respect. But they learn by example too from their peers, who they look up to.

      There is on occasion the misfit who is not of the norm and needs to be culled for a variety of reasons, some as the result of genetics, criminality, or whatever is the cause and they are sent to a place more suitable to there special needs, rather than left to effect the whole, while not having the attention needed and causing them to miss out on their chance at life.

      School is were they (Children) spend the most majority of their time for the first 12 years, learning their ethics and social skills that will last a lifetime. With not as much influence from home as most people think.Very little gang culture is learned at home, but away from home, while at school, after school and with their friends, unless that is the norm of their culture at home.

      The police are their to enforce the rules of a hand tied administration, that we as parents and our Courts, are the cause of. ALL BECAUSE WE STARTED TO BELL THE FUCKING CAT IN THE 1980’S AND STILL DOING IT TODAY.

      • Domina Elle

        Children are supposed to be learning ethics and how to behave primarily from their parents. Letting ‘school’ parent your kids is exactly what the state propaganda machine loves. School is a brainwashing mechanism more than anything these days. Combined with the media establishment this society is in serious trouble. Edward Bernays must be creaming in his casket.

        • Guy

          Easy to let everyone else do the work as parents for us, with some I think preferring it that way. Even more easy to blame everyone else especially the schools, when it all blows up in our faces and Johnny is thrown out for fighting and Susy get’s pregnant at 16 ! So the easy answer to the problem, put even more cops on campus for discipline to keep the teachers safe, and dumb down the class work so every kid get’s a A.

  • Guy

    Sorry folks, but i have a tendency to break it down to really simple terms for thouse who don’t get it, or are incapable of it after having brain surgery !

    When the school administration of any district, county, city or state ! Has been de-fanged, de-clawed and de-balled such as ours have been as the results of lawsuit, after lawsuit over the years, all being backed up by the Liberal Courts and the ACLU, at the request of the parents and their lawyers, for the past administrations methods of school discipline. Which has caused the call in of the police, to do their work of enforcement and admission of school discipline at the behalf of the Parents, Teachers and Administrators. Then this is the results and effect of that call for help ! So either learn to live with it or change it. But you can’t possibly have it both ways and want to put the genie back into the bottle, not as long as cops are on our school campuses in their present form, you won’t !

    It suck’s to be You and litlle Johnny, Susy, Latecia and Jerome, Jose and Maria, Kim and Wong ! But it’s your fault, so tough shit !

  • Aeir

    God be with the boy, I hope that man gets fired an arrested for assault of a child (a fucking KID!!!!)! If that were my child I would fight tooth an nail. Look clearly at the evidence that kid was sitting… that privilege prick so full of rage plucked him from his seat an while the man choked him out the boy still put his hands up like “please sir im not tring to do anything” That man an all who think that is ok, need to remember justice is RIGHT from WRONG the legal system is now all built on who has the most money (typically the most corrupt) not actual justice for the one who was wronged 🙁

    Anybody who says its ok to abuse a kid is sick in the head…

  • Noneya1

    It looks to me as if the kid wasn’t complying.

  • Bud

    This would appear to be a case in which both the principal and police officer should be fired and prosecuted. Even if the student had done something previously it would not have called for this over-response. The student could easily have been cuffed and taken to a police vehicle.
