After Rolesville incident, reconsider school police

On Jan. 3, a school resource officer at Rolesville High School in Wake County slammed a student onto the concrete floor of the cafeteria. Jasmine Darwin – a 16-year-old, one-hundred-pound, African-American student at the school – reportedly was attempting to help break up a fight involving her sister. Video of the incident shows the officer grabbing Jasmine from behind, lifting her to his chest, slamming her to the ground, yanking her limp body up by her arm, and then dragging her away. She reportedly suffered a concussion and significant emotional trauma.
