Fox News expert: South Carolina cop who flipped black teen out of her desk was ‘polite’
The South Carolina police officer who was filmed flipping a student out of her desk was “polite,” according to a Fox News crime scene expert.
Former Los Angeles Police Department detective Mark Fuhrman on Tuesday night told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the officer did not use excessive force, according to video published by Media Matters.
“I’ll tell you why it’s not excessive,” Fuhrman said. “He verbalized, he made contact, he verbalized, he was polite. He requested her. He verbally did that.”
“The next level is he put a hand on her,” he continued. “She escalated it from there. He used soft control. He threw her on the ground, he handcuffed her. He didn’t use mace. He didn’t use a Taser. He didn’t use a stick. He didn’t kick her. He didn’t hit her. He didn’t choke her. He used a minimal amount of force necessary to effect an arrest.”
