The video surfaced just a few days ago, but it's gotten national attention.
In a one-on-one interview with NH1 News and Paul Steinhauser, Hillary Clinton was asked about the actions of a South Carolina sheriff’s deputy who was caught on video slamming a 16-year old student to the ground.
“There’s no excuse for that kind of behavior from an adult towards any young person in a school setting or anywhere," Clinton said.
The incident was captured on a student's cellphone and happened at Spring Valley High School in Columbia.
The video shows Fields asking a girl to rise from a classroom desk. Another adult is standing nearby. The girl stays seated, so the officer wraps a forearm around the child's neck. The officer then tips the attached chair and desk backward until she spills to the floor. The officer then tosses the girl several feet across the floor to the front of the classroom where Fields ordered her hands behind her back and applied handcuffs.
"If there are discipline issues they should be approached in a careful non-violent way," Clinton said. "And I thought what he did was way, way out of line and should not be tolerated."
The deputy was fired Wednesday morning.
