All good points Liberty. Training, or the lack thereof, is central to understanding why this incident occurred:



Rough Arrest Highlights How In-School Police Officers Are — and Aren'tTrained for Kids


... Fields underwent the same 40-hour training that other SROs receive in order to be a liaison between schools, communities, and law enforcement officials.

That training includes how to deal with students who are disabled, navigating gang issues and how to identify gang members, and learning about drugs in schools. Officers are also given insight into how a child’s mind works and how to apply their training based on the type of school that they’re in.

“A lot of it is that you learn and apply it as need be,” McCants says.

But SRO training doesn’t teach officers how to use defensive tactics with students, she says. Rather, they learn them from a 12-week training in the police academy.

NASRO takes a similar approach. Canady says it addresses conflict from a philosophical standpoint, but doesn’t specify actions that officers should take because “every department has their own standard training.”

The question is why did they protest Kemetstry.

It appears the kids were more concerned about a football game, since Fields was also a coach. And except for this slamming incident, obviously, Fields had established good rapport with the kids.

So, in my opinion, they were being selfish and insensitive to the wrong Fields committed that day ... Nevertheless, here's what I found:



Spring Valley students stage walkout in support of Ben Fields


... Several students said those 15 seconds don’t reflect the Ben Fields they know.

"He was a great guy," student London Harrell said. "He protected us and everything. He was our school resource officer. We always could depend on him and everything. Every time I saw him, he was always joking around with people. It was never like ‘Oh, I’m about to body slam you.'"

Parents have said the protests could continue once school lets out. There is also a football game at Spring Valley in just a few hours ...

Absolutely, it's not justified, but my understanding is that there will be a change in the way school resource officers handle kids as a result of this incident.
