Conyers, GA -- A student from Rockdale County High School uploaded a video over the weekend that shows a shocking police response to a schoolyard fight.
Adolescent quarrels are a frequent occurrence. As hormones rush in, children attempt to assert control over their environment as well as other children and the result can often manifest into a fight.
In the past, if a fight were to break out at school, the teachers, and in some cases the students, would rush in to pull the students apart. However, as the video below illustrates, this is no longer the case.
In the video below, a bully male teen appears to instigate a fight with a female teen. The two begin duking it out in the schoolyard and the female starts to gain the upper hand.
In a rational world, teachers would step in to break up the fight, or the school police officer would come in to stop the fight. However, this is not an ordinary world.
Instead of showing an a single shred of courage and stepping in to break up the pair, this officer walked up, and without hesitation deployed a 50,000-volt metal prong into a teenager.

The pair immediately falls to the ground, with the black male writhing in pain from the taser.
Of course, this teen was out of line for starting this fight, and he deserves to be disciplined for it. However, when this officer cowardly deployed his taser without first attempting to separate the students, he illustrated a powerful point. That point is, "the police state does not tolerate normal childhood behavior, and we will enforce this intolerance with violence."
Bullying in school can certainly be problematic for many students, and it should not be tolerated. But the message that is sent by dealing with these issues using violence is that only the state can be the bullies.
Fortunately, many of the students who were watching the fight voiced their concern about the police officer's behavior which shows that America's youth haven't fully succumb to accepting the police state.
