This story will never make the mainstream media news because it doesn’t fit their narrative. The idea that a teacher was forcefully removed from a public school board meeting, thrown to the ground and handcuffed, simply because she dared to ask the supervisor why he was giving himself a raise, while teachers were made to go without, is about as un-American as it gets.
A Louisiana teacher was violently arrested at a public school board meeting Monday night after she questioned her superintendent for giving himself a raise when teachers and administrators were made to go without.
Rene Rost Middle School English teacher Deyshia Hargrave was asked to leave the meeting because she was asking questions instead of making declarative statements during a public-comment portion of the Vermilion Parish school board meeting, according to KATC TV-3.
But once a city marshal got her out into a hallway, he started roughing her up as he slapped on the silver bracelets.
“Stop resisting,” the marshal warns in cellphone footage aired by KATC.
“I’m not — you just pushed me to the floor,” a visibly frightened Hargrave responds, her voice cracking.
“Hold on, I am way smaller than you,” the woman then pleads as the marshal, who appears more than a foot taller than Hargrave, shoves her toward a school exit.
Moments before, Hargrave told district Superintendent Jerome Puyau that it was “a slap in the face” that he would get a raise even though teachers and support staff had not seen a pay hike in years.
She also posed several questions, and was warned to restrict her statements to comments only — even though the board was answering her questions, KATV reported. When she was called on to speak a second time, board president Anthony Fontana ruled her out of order and called in the marshal, the outlet reported. – NYP
