In the video (which has profanity), the student can be seen pushing the uniformed school resource officer in the chest inside Glasgow High School as staff try to break up a scuffle between students.
The officer, a Delaware state detective assigned to the 1,063-student school in Newark, Delaware, then grabs the teen by the neck, swings her around and throws her to the ground. The girl’s head and neck narrowly miss hitting a flight of stairs.
Moments later, the girl appears to resist being arrested and continues to fight off the officer as he tries to subdue her. She eventually gets back up and then is thrown down again — this time on the steps.
This incident took place May 13, 2014 and as far as I can see The News Journal had nothing on it! The NBC10.com headline is a little tilted and should of read, Recording of student resisting arrest and breakdown of school security puts police officer in danger. Sorry nothing personal but the guy in the white shirt is unless!
I don’t what good it will do but having the parents watch this video might help or at least see the other side of their children . I am not sure what school security camera’s will product but looks like those charged might have a problem defending themselves.
I wonder where Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy stands on school security and the need for better school security training? Odds are he’s behind the frosted glass-door to his office laying on his back! Folks the concern with “intruders” is valid but as you can see the battle is internal with students.
