Spring Valley High Classmates Dismiss Claims That Black Teen Was Disruptive
Spring Valley High School officials and local deputies in South Carolina are investigating after a video taken at the high school shows a violent attack between a Black female student and the school’s resource officer.
The Sheriff’s office claimed the Black student was being “disruptive” in class but many of her peers have come out the dismiss the claims.
Student Aaron Johnson says otherwise:
The suit, which is scheduled to go to trial in January, stated that Fields “recklessly targets African-American students with allegations of gang membership and criminal gang activity” and wrongfully accused a former Spring Valley High School student, Ashton James Reese, of being involved in a “huge gang fight” at a Walmart parking lot near the school in January 2013.
Fields did not respond to the original incident, the suit stated, but took over the investigation from a fellow deputy. He is accused of falsely describing Reese as a gang member without even speaking to him about the incident, which reportedly involved three men not identified as Spring Valley students attacking another man. Fields described the incident as an attempt to unify three gangs.
However, neither Fields nor the school’s assistant principal, April Shell, were able to provide written statements implicating Reese in connection with the incident during a pair of subsequent hearings. Fields allegedly insisted that he would only review his files if Reese were to face criminal charges.
