A Texas school police officer has been placed on administrative leave after a video shows him picking up a sixth-grade and slamming her to the ground.

According to CBS DFW, a recently released video shared on social media shows 12-year-old Mariana Benton and another young girl fighting on the grounds of Piedmont G.L.O.B.A.L  Academy School in Dallas. Not too soon after, an uniformed Dallas Independent School District officer tried to separate the two before he picked up Mariana and slammed her to the ground.

“The officer came and grabbed me and body slammed me,” Mariana told NBC. “He pepper sprayed me in the eyes and I couldn’t open my eyes because it was burning me.”

The young girl was also severely injured.

“Her clavicle is fractured,” Alma Valadez, Benton’s mother told the news station.

She added: “It makes me mad, angry. She’s 12 years old. She weighs 100 pounds. He should be fired.”

The school district placed the officer on administrative leave, but refused to release the officer’s name. However, school officials stressed that the officer’s actions did not appear to “represent the type of response we want our officers to display.”

But Alvarez isn’t having it.

“Everybody says oh yes, she deserves it … No, no,” Valadez said. “She doesn’t deserve it. She’s a 12-year-old girl.”

According to the New York Daily News, this isn’t the first time the school district has come under fire for its alleged brutality against students. They also recently made headlines after a 7-year-old boy was reportedly handcuffed by an officer at Gabe P. Allen Charter School for acting.

    And you wonder why black kids get suspended more that European American students. They are out of control.

    Doesn’t someone love black people enough to tell them to listen to the police? Here’s where it gets really bad: if this violent colored girl had broken her clavicle fighting another out of control violent black privileged girl, nothing would have been said. Stop the black privilege double standard.

      Would have been a fair fight, same weight class, one lost. However, this “man” weighs more than this 12 y.o. child, NOT A FAIR FIGHT. He lost control, he should lose his job.

      “Colored girl,” are you kidding me. I didn’t know they had computers in the backwoods of Mississippi.

    • RENO2AC on said:

      Stop being an idiot. You cannot body slam somebody’s child. You separate the parties and have the building administrators handle it from there, but you do not cause physical harm to someone’s child!

        Your comment is rude and uncalled for 12 year old is a child not a woman. Female child😇. Race will always be a factor especially with comments like this.

    From the looks of the video he had already separated the two, why did he need to pick her up and slam her to the ground? the first was over.
