Hey look. This bull crap again. If you can't handle having a kid swear at you, you aren't qualified to be a school security officer.

The school officials are morons. Here's betting they erase the tapes "accidentally."

FTFA: Written statements from Officer Joey McCarthy....

Jesus...even the cop's name is Joseph McCarthy.  This kid never had a  chance.

It's a good thing that officer was there or that kid might have gone quietly back to class and then go on to graduate.

I said let me get my stuff. School was about to be let out and I didn't want to leave my phone and stuff at school."

Joquan also stated: "I was going in to get my stuff and suddenly Mr. Preston and Officer McCarthy grabbed me and I was put in a headlock and they started slamming me against the wall and they slammed me on the table and hit my head and it started pounding. They threw me against other things in the room. I didn't understand what was going on. At some point they had me hanging over the stair rails in the hall. Somebody put handcuffs on me and they took me to a police car. I asked could I call my dad but they wouldn't let me. I told Officer McCarthy that the handcuffs were hurting. He grabbed at them and made them tighter. He took me to the police station and started writing stuff. He said Oh you hit me. I said "Huh, when did I hit you?" He told me it didn't matter. He kept picking at me and telling me he got me now and asked why did I want to call my daddy earlier and did I think my daddy was going to come and beat him up or something. Then he locked me up." A few hours later my mom and dad came and got me out of jail and took me to the hospital because my head, back, and hand was still hurting."

Written statements from Officer Joey McCarthy and Principal Gary Preston give no indication that the arrest stems from the act of going to the restroom after being given permission. In fact the statements are rather vague and make it appear as if the incident started at the classroom door. They also fail to mention any of their own behavior. There's a difference in restraining someone and slamming them into walls and tables which is what was described by numerous witnesses. The teen is rather small. McCarthy is large and stocky. Preston is a large man as well.


Give some people authority over people who can't fight back, and they'll eventually abuse them.  Unfortunately, I'm beginning to believe that the proportion of people who will do this is much higher than I ever suspected - and that as Authority:Accountability curve goes up, the Abusive Entitlement curve tracks at an exponential rate.

I had a school security guard spy on me in the bathroom once.  I was taking a piss and I get the feeling I'm being watched, I turn around and these two f*cking eyes are staring at me from behind the stall. He tried to frame me for smoking.  There had been about three guys smoking in the boys room when I had walked in, and this idiot just missed them, so he took me in.

The assistant principal is talking about expulsion (3 weeks before graduation, mind you) and this idiot is smirking at me.  All I did was let him spin this ridiculous detective yarn about me, ask if i could say something on my own behalf, and asked, "Did you see me smoking?  Was there a cigarette?"

All he had to say was, "Well, uh..probably."  Finally, after the guard stuttering for awhile, the Ass't principal demanded a straight answer.  "No, I assumed he was smoking because of the smell, and yes, I unfortunately did observe him while he was urinating."

The ass't principal apologized to me and told me to go back to class and please gently shut the door on the way out.

Guess I had a wiser high school administration than this kid did.

According to the report the kid didn't swear. Even the security officer didn't say the kid swore. It was the principal that made up that story.

And:

Wallace says she thinks Preston might destroy the video or claim it was erased or that the equipment malfunctioned. She stated, "I've heard they've done that in the past."

So when this kid can't get into college because of the felony rap, figures he's got no future left to live for, decides to go out in style, and comes through the front door with a Glock AR-47...we all blame it on Call of Duty, right?

Yeah, but if your made up excuse is "he swore" that's totally farmed up because you should be able to deal with that anyway.
 
2014-04-06 02:02:58 PM  
I think the principal and security officer forgot the first rule of committing a crime: Don't have witnesses.

They also forgot the second rule: Have your story straight before the cops split you up.

And also, this may depend on the state, but aren't all minors supposed to have a parent present during interrogation?  Why was this student's parents not around for hours after the arrest?  I'm going to guess shiatbag security officer who's about to have a bad day and school who is going to have less money for football.

School officials generally legally act in place of the parent has been my understanding.

My kids learn at a very young age "can i go back to class? No? Please call my dad."

Parents should press charges against the adults for peeping on their child. Perhaps being put on a sex offender list will teach them some common sense.

true story.  had a fellow military person claim I was smoking pot and told me he had his eye on me.  I went straight to the NCOIC (shop boss) with the accuser in tow and requested a urine test and drug dogs to sniff out my car.  Kid was an idiot.  They asked me what I suggested we do about it.  My only request was that he or I be moved to another shift as he seemed to have some issue with me.  I suggested whatever mercy could be given as he had a wife and kid he was responsible for.  The moved him to night shift- he took the time to both apologize and thank me for not making a big deal out of it.

Seriously- what else was I entitled to?

Yes, I know.

My point is, there is a certain segment of the population that doesn't need to feel in any way coerced or even encouraged by authority.  They'll abuse any power they may have as a matter of course, and it's only a matter of time before they do something - all on their own initiative - that constitutes abuse.  And I'm beginning to think that segment is larger than I had suspected.

Paris Independent School District followed a new public school trend by hiring its own police force in October of 2013. The District insisted that this move was about safety and would have nothing to do with discipline.

Meanwhile the teachers have to buy school supplies out of pocket and haven't seen a raise in years, and the wingnuts blame everything on Union Thugs in a right-to-mooch-off-the-union state.

Unless actual damages can be proven- why would you be entitled to more than an apology and firing of the individuals involved?  Society is not responsible for individual fark ups as much as you want to believe it is.
