Quick hit: what the hell?
It seems to have gone like this: girl drops piece of cake in lunchroom. Girl is told by security guard to clean it up. She does so. Guard isn’t satisfied. Girl tries again, then a third time, then tries to leave for class. Security guard pounces, twists her arm behind her back and shoves her down against a table, breaking her wrist in the process. Girl is later arrested for assaulting the guard and for littering.
The end of the incident is caught on a cell phone camera by another student. That student is also arrested.
Girl’s mother goes to the school to complain. She, too, is arrested, and subsequently suspended from her job without pay.
What the hell is going on here?
