A Rolesville, North Carolina school resource officer has been placed on leave after a video was posted of him body slamming a petite teenage girl.
A full investigation is under way after the officer, Ruben De Los Santos, was caught on tape picking the girl up to his shoulder height and then throwing her to the floor in a move more suitable for a World Wrestling Federation ring than a high school. He then pulls her to her feet, pins her arms behind her back and walks her away.
I can’t think of any scenario in which an unarmed girl should be treated with such brutality by a man in charge of student safety.
Check out the disturbing video.
