A police resource officer in Federal Way, Washington is under fire for detaining a high school student who was involved in a school fight. Really?
Federal Way police confirm that a female student resisted being restrained by a school resource officer — who is also a Federal Way police officer.
According to a statement from Federal Way police, the student “resisted the school resource officer by kicking and swinging.”
Students who witnessed the incident say the student, who is black, punched the officer, who is white, in the head during the arrest.
What was the school’s reaction? To talk about ‘Black Lives Matter’ for two periods after that incident.
