The video was posted on Twitter and You Tube causing a firestorm online. Fields' boss, Richland County Sheriff, Leon Lott, stated the officer did not follow protocol. Fields also has a history of physically assaulting students in the Richland County school district, as attested by many tweets on Twitter by victims and witnesses.
You're his lawyer. You're getting paid to say that, but if somebody put your kid in a chokehold, slammed her to the ground, tossed her across a room, then jumped on her back and cuffed her, you would sue him into bankruptcy. Fields has roid rage issues and thinks he's a wrestler. There was no necessity for him to treat her that way. She made no motion towards him. It was excessive force and police brutality. Make it worse, your client has a history of this misconduct in the school district clearing indicating he is a danger to the kids. Fields should have been arrested.
