On Wednesday, Oct. 29, Deputy Ben Fields threw a thirteen year-old African-American girl on the floor and across the room and put her in handcuffs at Spring Valley High School, South Carolina. The girl was disrupting the class, preventing the students to learn and the teacher to teach. She was asked several of times to stop beforehand. In South Carolina, it is unlawful to willfully or unnecessarily disrupt students and teachers. It is a misdemeanor offense that can amount up to $1,000 or ninety days in county jail. The girl now has neck and back injuries, a cast on her arm, and forehead rug burn.
