FORMER OFFICERS CHARGED AFTER LEAKED VIDEO SHOWS THEM SLAMMING MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT

After a video showing a police officer slamming a middle school student to the ground twice and another thrusting the student's face into a desk surfaced, the officers are facing minor charges.

The student's family believes the charges are a "slap on the wrist," their attorney Kwame Asante told Baton Rouge-based The Advocate. Asante said the teen was sent to the office for cursing on the playground. He then argued with a school administrator about how long he had to stay in detention. That was in October.

In the leaked video, Dupre is seen wrestling a 14-year-old middle school student to the ground in Brusly Middle School's office. The video shows the student going into the school office, speaking with administrators and attempting to walk out the door. Dupre is seen stopping the student and slamming him to the ground. The two wrestle for over two minutes. It's unclear exactly what is taking place according to the video, which was mailed WAFB-TV, because most of the altercation is not visible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The more schools treat their students like convicts, in a minimum security prison, the more students will believe that this violent acting-out is the only kind of behaviour acceptible from them, even if they get physically attacked by school police.

You know, it's really interesting; you don't hear about these kinds of incidences happening in Montessori Schools; Waldorf Schools, or Kumon Schools.

And why?!? Because these schools believe that if they ask for the best from their students, and provide a loving, structured learning environment, those students will deliver, and thrive.

Why the American educational system won't learn the lessons to be learned from these highly respected schools, must have a reason behind it.

In essence, in most public schools, they use a combination of outmoded teaching tactics, coupled with harsh punishments if students do not comply, which absolutely guarantee that some of its more rambunctious students will get into trouble, or be summarily medicated, probably without the parents' consent.

And that trouble, frequently, creates a direct pipeline from school to juvenile correction facilities. To understand how frequently this happens in 21st century American public education, is utterly appalling.
