Yesterday, we reported on the latest police brutality video that has liberals up in arms. This 15 second video shows a South Carolina officer tackling a 16 year-old girl to the ground in a classroom.
Unsurprisingly, it has now been revealed that liberals are taking this clip grossly out of context, and that longer videos prove that Officer Ben Fields’ actions were justified. According to Conservative Tribune, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott claims that the student hit Fields first during the confrontation.
“When the officer puts his hands on her initially, she reaches up and she pops the officer with her fist,” Sheriff Lott said, according to CNN, adding that though the student, “was wrong for disturbing the class, I’m looking at what our deputy did.”
Lott went on to say that he does not believe race was a factor in this incident, as Fields has been dating a black woman for “quite some time.”
Lott also revealed that there is a THIRD video, which could shed light onto what really happened. He said the third video was taken from a different angle and shows the girl “striking and punching at the officer.”
Despite the fact that law enforcement has revealed that Fields was only defending himself, this hasn’t stopped liberals from using this footage to promote their agendas.
“There is no excuse for violence inside a school. The #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh is unacceptable — schools should be safe places,” Hillary Clinton wrote on Twitter.
“Welcome to the school-to-prison pipeline! This unjust criminalization of our youth has to end,” Bernie Sanders also tweeted.
