A leaked security video shows a disturbing incident in which a Louisiana police officer appears to slam a 14-year-old middle school student to the ground then punch and hold him down for close to a minute, reports WAFB.
The teen was using a phone at Brusly Middle School to call his grandmother to pick him up after he got in trouble with the vice principal. The officer walks in, and address the student. When the student tries to walk past him, the cop grabs him and wrestles him to the ground. They wrestle for almost a minute. At one point it looks like the officer is punching the teen.
The officer’s gun gets loose in the scuffle and a panicked onlooker jumps in to grab the firearm and move it out of the way. The officer then puts the teenager in a chokehold and flips him over his head.
After a few more seconds of struggle another officer joins in, and handcuffs the teen. He then slams him headfirst into a desk.
Louisiana State Police are investigating the case for allegations of excessive force, according to WAFB.

Pirro told the two they had "done wonderful things for the country" and said Trump had ended political correctness and people could say "Merry Christmas."
"You can say Merry Christmas again," Lara Trump said. "Isn't that so nice, Jeanine?"
"It's incredible," Eric Trump said. "It is nice to say Merry Christmas again."
‘Donald Trump was right from the beginning’: Jeanine Pirro tells Fox News audience the opposite of reality

Pirro went on an angry rant in her opening, claiming that the DOJ inspector general report showed bias, despite the fact that the report found the opposite.
Regardless the facts, Pirro claimed that President Donald Trump had been vindicated.
