Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 11, 2018

A Louisiana school board president drew criticism Wednesday for his response to a video that shows a female teacher being forcibly removed from a school board meeting after questioning the school superintendent's pay raise. The video shows middle school teacher Deyshia Hargrave being handcuffed and led out of the building Monday night. Critics have called out the teacher's removal, saying it was unnecessary. "Everybody wants to side on the poor little woman who got thrown out," Anthony Fontana, the Vermilion Parish School Board president, told WAFB in a phone interview. "Well, she made a choice. She could have walked out and nothing would have happened." Fontana said the public's reaction to the video has been swift. But he drew criticism himself for his reaction to the video.

In the video, Hargrave makes the case that children learn in the classroom, and it is the teachers who are on the front line. She is soon led out of the meeting by a marshal, and the video cuts to show Hargrave on a hallway floor, screaming as the marshal handcuffs her hands behind her back.

"Poor little women" are expected to be silent and obedient. She couldn't do either so she got arrested. Now the "poor little woman" will cause major harm to that douche bag, my guess is he'll lose his job and his big pay raise and be unemployable in his current position. the "poor little woman" is going to kick his ass.

#1 I gave you a NW flag but I think I accidently hit funny. I agree with you 100%. I will add the cop was a douchebag after they exited the room.

Someone tell me how this works. You hire a cop to run security at your event and then when anyone says something you don't like you have them arrested? Sweet! I'm going to hire a cop to come to my work for my security and then when my coworkers 'get out of line' I'm going to have them arrested. Boss says something I don't like? "Get 'em outta here!!" I should have a cop follow me around all day. Next time someone cuts me off in traffic, jail time -----. Take 12 items through the 10 item lane at the grocery store? "Bag and tag 'em, Robo." Trippy.

For some reason I thought this was going to be another Doctor Who thread.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said he saw nothing on videos of Hargrave's arrest that warranted her rough treatment.

Hargrave returned to the classroom Wednesday. A local prosecutor said he won't pursue charges against her.

Apparently Mr.Fontana needs to spend some time in his schools and learn what "No Comment" means.
