Many observers have noticed that government-run schools closely resemble their kindred institutions, government-run prisons.

Schools and prisons are drab, utilitarian buildings usually surrounded by fences. The inmates within them are forced to follow a regimented schedule punctuated by the use of buzzers and bells, and punished when they don’t react quickly enough. Entering and exiting both kinds of institutions requires official permission for both inmates and visitors. With the addition of police “resource officers” in many schools, their transformation into prisons is nearly complete.

Yes, I admit that the comparison is imperfect and in one sense unfair, since it’s possible to learn a useful trade in prison. But I digress.

Just days after we learned that a group of Chicago’s, ahem, finest stood by and allowed an innocent 16-year-old student to be beaten to death (a group of unarmed social workers attempted to rescue the victim while armed police awaited “backup”),we learn from a CBS affiliate in Dolton,Illinois that 15-year-old Marshawn Pitts, a “special needs” student, was attacked by a school “resource” officer at least twice his bodyweight.

The officer — as seen in the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGoF3h9iQ5Y – began by berating the youngster; he then grabbed him, slugged him, and then threw him face-first into the floor in what is called a “face-down takedown,” a technique banned in eight states because it frequently results in lethal positional asphyxia. Marshawn survived, albeit with a broken nose.

Ah, but the miscreant had it coming to him. You see, Marshawn — a young man who suffered a brain injury as a child and now is part of a special education program — had his shirt un-tucked.

Let us now praise the Uniforms that Guard us from the menace of sloppily dressed special needs students. Where would civilization be without their heroic vigilance?

It looks like the student was giving him attitude and the cop lost his temper.

People with serious anger management problems shouldn't be allowed to be cops. It reminded me of this incident: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GgWrV8TcUc

Though I will admit that there was an excess use of force,
No sane human being would pound on a kid because he had his shirt tucked out of his pants.
That jackass probably regularly taunted the fat bastard and finally made him give in to his frustrations.

From the look of the school I would say its one of those red listed by the government.
Probably full of wannabe gangsters and future convicts.

And this just proves that there should be a better background check in what schools hire their employees. There is no REASON a resource officer should have to use such force on anyone unless its some sort of deadly threat. I hope the officer receives help but also I'm thinking there really has to be more to it that just the shirt being untucked. I usually try to give people the benefit of the doubt but I do agree what the officer did was indeed to much.

Schools with prison like environment, while the prison offer mandatory skill training. Despise the different people that go into those two institutions, these places are nonetheless a type of social reform taking place beyond families and job fields.

Therefore it's not about the facilities but rather, just who are the people that's administrating the social reforming. That can be the different maker about our students and criminals.

All because of his shirt wasnt tucked in seriously? Not matter what the kid said if anything there is no excuse for beating him like that. When you give one power it goes to their head and they abuse their power and overstep the boundary's that were made.

lol, the student made one fatal mistake, he got up to fast. He should have stayed down, but he started acting far to aggressive after he was pushed into lockers. He is mentally ill, so it may have been a reflex, but he's also black, and he needs to know how to handle cops.
but he should have sensed the cop behind him, and prepared his body for impact...when falling face 1st, use forearms to catch yourself...

btw, I HATE so called "illegal techniques" rule. This is one reason why cops are so danmed stressed and end up beating up black people for no reason. Criminals can do NE thing to a cop, but a cop can't punch, kick, or even do certain takedowns to defend himself.

They have to use diluted juijitsu and diluted kung fu that does the leasts minimal damage possible. Courts will claim "well policemen have the gun",
but they arnt allowed to use it unless the suspect has a knive or gun. These useless techniques get policemen killed. Like the "facedown takedown", plz, you would have to be double the wieght in oder to use such a foolish technique. Now if this offcier was allowed to punch and kick, he wouldnt need to beat up a mentally ill child. He could find some random street thug, and beat them to death.

Edit= there was another incident even greater then this one, there was a handicaped guy in a wheel chair, his legs were paralysed. the handicaped guy was being talked to by an officier, and he was so scared he started peeing on himself. :lol:the policemen got so mad at the dude, he started threatening to kill this helpless handicaped guy, mace him, and beat him luckily there was a citizen near by and calmed the cop down.b4 the handicaped guy got killed
peace over war

Hmmm? Most my friends are cops, and I never had trouble beating there asses in a one on one spar, anything goes street fight.
But Cops do not have to use washed up take downs. They only have to ask them to get down on the ground. If the person does not do so.. One can use the tazer gun to take them down. There is a little video camera on the tazer gun, so as soon as you start charging the gun there recording. So as long as they can show the person would not get down or do as the cop said they can light him up like a Christmas tree. Hell One of my friends slammed some fat guy head off the hood of the cop car. Cops do not hold back even if your already handcuffed.

How the hell do you spell Tazer gun???
