The 15 second video showing a white police officer aggressively slamming, dragging and detaining a young Black female student has created an outrage online and now the deputy involved may be facing charges.

The incident occurred in Columbia, South Carolina at Spring Valley High. The school’s resource officer, Deputy Ben Fields, was reportedly called in to help with a disruptive student that was refusing to leave class … that’s when he grabbed her, flipped her desk over, threw her to the ground and drug her across the floor … all in an effort to ultimately cuff her.

Now, we know that at least one person in the classroom cried out in protest and that young lady was unfortunately arrested as well. Niya Kenny told WLTX that the teen, who has not yet been identified, only took out her cell phone in class and that is why she was reprimanded. When Kenny spoke out in her defense she faced the wrath of the officer as well.

Following the incident Kenny was arrested and released on $1,000 bond. The young lady initially assaulted by the officer is said to have sustained injuries and is traumatized by the event. Officer Fields has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into the incident.

In a statement, the chairman of the school board called the video “extremely disturbing”, while the superintendent stated they are “deeply concerned”. The FBI has launched a civil rights investigation into the incident and we will continue to follow this story as it develops.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy

Published

Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
