Louisiana teacher handcuffed, taken from school board meeting

Posted January 10, 2018

Hargrave was called upon a second time for comment.

Footage from the Vermillion Parish School Board meeting, which has since gone viral, shows Deyshia Hargrave violently being pushed to the floor after following a city officer's orders to leave the meeting. When we have class sizes that are that big.

"She got away from what I believe was the germane issue", he said.

It is unclear if the security officer was ordered to arrest Hargrave and remove her from the meeting.

She started to walk sideways through the assembly to leave, as some protested, noting that Mr. Puyau had started to directly address Ms. Hargrave just as the marshal tried to eject her.

"As an organization that advocates for the dedicated school employees of Louisiana, we firmly denounce the mistreatment of Ms. Hargrave, a loving parent and dedicated teacher serving the students of Vermilion Parish", the union's statement said.

Abbeville city attorney Ike Funderburk told the Lafayette ABC affiliate that he would not approve any charges against Deyshia Hargrave.

"I don't think it needed to come to the extreme that it came to", she said.

A TV news camera crew captured the moment a teacher from Vermilion Parish, Louisiana, was arrested during a school board meeting Monday night, and multiple recordings of the incident have spread quickly on social media.

'It was comments for the superintendent, ' Hargrave continues.

School superintendent Jerome Puyau, the man whose potential pay raise was being discussed in the meeting, said that no charges were filed by him or the board against Hargrave.

The National Education Association reported that Louisiana saw the largest decrease in average public school teacher salary between 2014 and 2015, with the average salary for the 2015-2016 school year coming out to approximately $47,000. Later in the same meeting, she spoke again in response to a question from the board, and was confronted by the marshal despite objections from the audience. It is every citizen's right to speak up for their beliefs'.

'When authority refuses to be questioned it is a tyranny'. They and the super they hire have total control over their pay and benefits. They use children as pawns, but never producing the results needed to benefit the children'.

'She was not insulting, threatening or assaulting anyone...this is intimidation with the intent to send a message to the rest of the group'. Police are the armed government enforcers, here only to keep the peasants in line'. She was later removed in handcuffs. And even if she had, ranting and raving is not by itself sufficient reason to be handcuffed and taken in for booking'.
