Spring Valley: New Video Surfaces, Changes The Context of The Incident…


Opinion: Steven Crowder

Damn twitter, still never waiting for context or evidence before convicting by public opinion, huh?

Does the video look bad? Of course. It’s an adult cop vs a teenage girl. It’s also an adult cop who has been routinely rewarded for the work he has done in the past.

Firstly, this is based on false premise. Not the least of which is that there was an incredible amount of “force” used against a girl. Secondly, that no use of whatever force used could be justified. Thirdly, this completely disregards any possible escalation that could have happened before a short, 15 second clip. I’m not saying this cop was right, but I certainly don’t think he can be unilaterally condemned from a 15 second clip.

Also, as anyone who’s practiced combat sports for years knows quite well, the most effective force to be used against oneself is that generated by… oneself. That’s what “Jiujitsu” is. That’s what cops are often taught. The initial story was that the cop put this girl in a “chokehold” and threw her across the room. But that desk flipping happened so quickly, so effortlessly, that anyone with an understanding of leverage and physics has a right to be skeptical.

Enter the new video from another angle that many people are saying completely changes the story and justifies the officer’s actions.

In this new video, the female suspect can be seen kicking and actually punching the police officer as he attempts to stand her up. He then escalates his actions following the assault.

The girl in the video was asked to leave the school by a teacher and then by an administrator. After she refused to do so, the school resource officer, identified as Deputy Ben Fields, came to the classroom, and that’s apparently where the original video starts.

The situation leading up to the student being asked to leave is still in question. The student was ultimately arrested and charged with disturbing a school. She was released to her parent’s custody a short time later.

As you can see, the cop never applied a chokehold. A headlock- or any kind of head-control does not equal a chokehold. To subdue any person, you’ve got to control either the head, or the hips. Here we see him trying to control her head, but more importantly, contrary to the initial accusations, he did NOT flip her desk. See his hand? It’s on her pant-leg.

ExhibitONE

That’s pivotal. For two reasons. 1) A pant-leg grab is non-lethal, non-painful and purely a hold used for control. Namely when being kicked. 2) It means that he did not grab her desk and throw it with her in it. He was clearly trying to pull her out of her desk. As a matter of fact, once his hand grabs her pant-leg, it NEVER LEAVES. Again, once his hand grabs her pant-leg, it NEVER LEAVES. At no point does he let go to flip the desk.

Let’s look at the second image.

ExhibitTWO

Okay, so right away we see that she’s punching a police officer. Which, is kind of a no-no. What else, she’s kicking her leg up and back? Why? Again, to try and free herself from the super-mean, evil pant-leg grab.

Ever leaned back to far on a chair and fall over in embarrassment? Now add the extra momentum of punching rabidly, while simultaneously kicking your leg up and back. That’s the kind of momentum that can very easily tip a desk over.

Does this mean the cop is right? Of course not. But we now have more facts. These facts have already changed the context. We should wait for the rest of them as well.

Allow me to present a brief timeline of what we have so far.

1.) Girl is disruptive in class. Teacher asks her to stop. Girl refuses.

2.) Teacher asks girl to leaves class. Girl refuses.

3.) Teacher calls down to the office, again asking girl to leave. Girl refuses.

4.) Office sends up “officer” who again asks girl to come with him. Girl refuses.

5.) Officer then tells girl that she needs to leave, or she will be forcefully removed. Girl refuses.

6.) Officer grabs girl to remove her from desk. She punches the officer and attempts to kick free, flipping her own desk.

7.) Officer drags her from the desk repeatedly asking her to put her hands behind her back. She continually refuses.

Twitter condemns him guilty of racist hate-crime. This is America.

Send your hate-tweets to @Scrowder and I’ll be sure to tell you why I don’t care.

    Also forgot the part where the assistant principle was called to the room to remove the child and she also refused her as well. The kid wanted to spend her class and the other students time to learn … TALKING on her cell phone. The teacher told her to put it away. She refused…she was asked to leave the class…she refused. Teacher calls the office, tells her to report to the office..she refuses. Teacher has assistant principle come get her… she refuses…the AP calls the officer..again..she refuses…he goes to her and tells her again…. SHE REFUSES. He goes to get her up..she punches and kicks as the cop headlocks the side of her head..and grabs her pant leg. But I guess the lesson is clear, the students who clearly give no shit about authority…about learning…about keeping others from learning…are the ones who are in control of the school. Because if they refuse punishment, you must walk away or be hit with a lawsuit.

    When you behave like a mad dog you will be treated as such. The parent(s) should have taught them there are consequences to their actions. My toddlers had better manners than this brat.
