Social media was in an uproar Monday night (October 26) when video footage surfaced online of a Spring Valley High School Resource officer violently removing a female student from class.
In the video, the officer, who has been identified as Ben Fields, places his arms around the female student’s neck. After a struggle, the desk, with the female student still sitting inside it, falls to the ground. Fields then drags the student out of the seat and to the front of the classroom.
After watching the violent video, many took to Twitter to express outrage and concern for the excessive force demonstrated by Officer Fields. Check out some of Twitter’s reactions
