(SFGate)   Okay, I can understand handcuffing and punching a student if he's being a tool, but dumping him out of his wheelchair was a dick move   (sfgate.com) divider line 13

Anyone who wants a job as an authority figure should not be allowed to have one.

thegarthok: namegoeshere: Mitchell ordered the student to move toward his next class, but the student "either refused to comply or was slow to do so," Principal Matin Abdel-Qawi wrote in a letter to parents.

So the child with CP who is in a wheel chair was moving slowly?

I for one am SHOCKED! Should've tazed the little shiat. How dare he be all handicapped like that!

Skipped the part where the kid spit in the guard's face. In my opinion they should both face assault charges.


That came after the guard shoved him in his chair for moving too slowly. Which is beyond dickish and should not ever be done (unless the chair is stuck on the tracks and a train is coming, that sort of thing.) People with CP have much trouble speaking clearly which can be extremely frustrating when you are trying to explain why you are not the fastest thing on wheels or tell Bubba Rentacop to get his nasty hands off you. So being unable to successfully protest verbally, he tried to remove the jerk's hands, and he was then handcuffed and pushed around. No, he should not have spit. That's nasty. But I understand. The escalation leading to the spitting and the assault was due to very poor decisions on the part of the power tripping cop wannabe.

This is why I don't work at a high school.  I would be hitting the students all the time. They deserve to be hit, just make sure you're not on camera.

namegoeshere: Empty H: Someone made a comment that pushing and spitting were the same thing. They are not.

Pushing is battery, too:

Battery
A battery is an intentional physical contact with a person without his or her consent that results in bodily harm or is offensive to a reasonable sense of dignity.

 In a classic example, spitting on an individual doesn't physically injure them, but it nonetheless can constitute offensive contact sufficient for a battery. - See more at: http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/assault-and-battery-over v iew.html#sthash.mMlk1zvO.dpuf

Actually, it sounds like pushing and spitting are quite a bit alike.


I corrected myself in the next post (totally justified if you didn't see it.) that I meant aggravated battery. This is specifically the case when spitting in a peace officer.

"Man handling someone is not the same as spitting in someone's face. Spitting on someone is the exchange of bodily fluids and is considered battery"

And handcuffing someone and taking them against their will could be called kidnapping...............just saying.

Empty H: Russ1642: Grabbing the wheelchair and pushimg him is the equivalent of manhandling an able bodied person. This kid had every right to spit in the guard's face.

It's called fighting back. The guard assaulted him first.

And got the beating he deserved for doing so. Two wrongs don't make a right and both these asshats need a kick in the sack.

I don't think society is producing anyone with the necessary temperament to be a police officer in the way that we regard them traditionally.  The modern personality does not seem to have the qualities of restraint and self-control.  I think those days of growing up and being mature are just gone.  Now everybody's a four year old forever.

"Oakland High School security guard has been fired and charged with child abuse..."

Every wheelchair-using person I've known over the years considers their chair to be basically an extension of their body. So if you wouldn't touch the person, you shouldn't be touching their chair.

Pushing the kid's chair without permission is a whole 'nother level of stupid.
