A community in Pennsylvania is outraged after a video went viral of a 15-year-old student getting punched by a school officer. The video shows a white male dressed in a uniform grab the young lady’s hair and slam her head to the ground and he also repeatedly punched her in the leg.
The school officers were breaking up an altercation moments before one of the officers can be seen in the video assaulting the student. Students attempted to help their classmate but they were pushed off by the officer.
Reported on a site, the school district Superintendent Brian Uplinger says that the officers followed proper protocol. He also confirmed that the four students involved in the fight have been suspended. “It’s important to know there are always two sides to every story and it’s really important for parents and students and community members to get both sides of those stories before going to social media,” Uplinger said.
Uplinger says people don’t understand what happened moments before the altercation but the community says that’s no excuse! Take a look at the video, what are your thoughts?
