SOUTH CAROLINA – Deputy Sheriff Ben Fields is in hot water after ‘officer slamming’ a young female student.
Fields simply overreacted and escalated the situation by approaching it all amped up and saying, “Are you going to get up? Or am I going to make you get up?” From that moment on the situation was not going to end up with a diplomatic conclusion.
Schools Superintendent Debbie Hamm said the district is strengthening its training efforts with school resource officers to ensure such an incident doesn’t happen again.
This wasn’t a violent felon that you are approaching on the streets that maybe armed and dangerous. This wasn’t a failure to cooperate. She wasn’t opposing immediate danger to herself or others. She is being a stupid, stubborn, moronic teenager.
Lets not make her a martyr but lets understand she was being a moronic teen and this wasn’t a proper way to respond.
