Students Walk Out Over Firing Of Spring Valley High School Resource Officer

AS REPORTED BY THE DAILY BEAST:

Hundreds of students walked out of Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday morning in support of the deputy sheriff who was fired after violently arresting a black student. Students reportedly chanted “Free Fields” in support of Ben Fields, a school resource officer and football coach who was caught on tape forcibly removing a black student from her desk, allegedly because she was disrupting class. The students walked into the school atrium and then returned to class after administrators addressed them.

That should tell you something about the problem of media manipulation of stories. The reason none of the students were reacting to the officer’s actions in the video taken was because they know the back story media didn’t care to explore. [Weasel Zippers]

    This is quite possibly the worst “article” that was ever written (and subsequently passed on). “That should tell you something about the problem of media manipulation of stories. The reason none of the students were reacting to the officer’s actions in the video taken was because they knew the back story the media didn’t care to explore.” Okay, WHAT IS the back story? Is there a journalist in this country that even knows the point of their job and the 5 points that should be covered in any story? I know this wasn’t part of the original article, but the original wasn’t much better. If you’re going to add to the article, could you at least INCLUDE information you’re writing about?

    As far as the protest, BRAVO! It’s nice to see students doing something GOOD! As far as Fields getting fired, nothing more than the typical “knee jerk reaction” we are getting all too familiar with. Nothing says “progress” better than firing a white guy when there is an altercation with a black guy!
