The officer was merely trying to do his job.
He was restraining a student at the end of a high school brawl in south Florida.
What happened next is an absolute abomination.
There are no words…
From NBC Miami:
A South Florida high school student was caught on cellphone video kicking a school resource officer in the face as he held down another student after breaking up a fight, police said.
The video, which was posted on Instagram and viewed thousands of times, shows the chaos and commotion Thursday at Homestead Senior High School. An arrest report says Officer Zapico was breaking up a fight among four students when he was kicked by another student, identified as 18-year-old Shardae Pittman.

If this kid is not expelled and charged with assaulting an officer then we all might as well just quit right now.
The level of disrespect certain Americans today show for law enforcement (of any kind) is beyond the pale.
The student needs to be held accountable to the fullest extent, no if’s, and’s, or but’s – PERIOD.
The fact that the student was attempting to rip the officer off of the other student before the kick to the face should be enough to warrant a major penalty.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
In other “education” related news…It’s not safe to be a young Trump supporter in school these days.
Then again, it’s not really safe to be a Trump supporter outside of school, either.
Unfortunately, the media is more concerned on attempting to cover for the likes of Jussie Smollett and Indian activist Nathan Phillips than reporting what truly matters.
Case in point: a high schooler was assaulted for wearing his MAGA hat.
From Daily Caller:
A Trump-supporting student at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas appeared to have his “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) apparel ripped off.
The student was wearing a MAGA hat on his head and a Trump-themed flag as a cape. The boy appears to get in an altercation with another student who appears to knock the hat off of his head and yell a racial slur at him.
A Trump supporting student at Edmond Santa Fe High School had his MAGA flag ripped off of him by another student.
These malicious attacks must be dealt with.

How awful is that?
People are still, to this day, triggered by a hat, despite the fact that minority unemployment under President Trump is at an all-time low.
Where’s the logic?
It’s time for journalists to be journalists again and report these types of instances.
