Just a few days ago the was a story and video of a school cop dealing with a 16 year old girl, who was acting up by refusing to quit playing on her phone during class, by tipping her over in her chair and physically throwing her across the room.

The cop was fired, but many support his "corrective" action.

Myself, I cannot imagine how such an escalation of a juvenile action of passive disobedience into physical violence against the child could be condoned as appropriate or "corrective".

Here is another course of action that is being developed around the country:

A justice program instead of a cop
