  • No charges for Vermilion Parish teacher who was handcuffed removed from board meeting

A teacher in Louisiana was removed from a school board meeting Monday night and put in handcuffs after bringing up teacher salaries.

Footage from the Vermillion Parish School Board meeting, which has since gone viral, shows Deyshia Hargrave violently being pushed to the floor after following a city officer's orders to leave the meeting. I don't care if the performance targets are met - you're making our jobs even more hard.

The incident started when Hargrave spoke up during public comments about the superintendent's new contract.

Told Hargrave (see first video below), 'For a superintendent or any person in a position of leadership getting any type of raise, I feel like it's a slap in the face for teachers, cafeteria workers and any other support staff we have'.

The Abbeville town marshal's office, which made the arrest, the superintendent's office and the school board president all declined further comment on the incident.

No charges were filed against Hargrave. She protested at the way she was being handled by the city marshal, asking "What are you doing?".

When the officer told her to "stop resisting", she responded: "I am not, you just pushed me to the floor.I am way smaller than you".

The instructor was called upon a moment time for input and, in the wake of offering another conversation starter, the unidentified Abbeville city agent marshal on obligation snatched Hargrave and expelled her from the gathering.

He orders Hargrave to leave the premises and she follows him out. Puyau told media in southwest Louisiana that the school system would not seek to have Hargrave prosecuted.

The National Education Association reported that Louisiana saw the largest decrease in average public school teacher salary between 2014 and 2015, with the average salary for the 2015-2016 school year coming out to approximately $47,000.

In latest developments, the superintendent of Vermilion Parish schools said they won't press charges against Hargrave, despite her since being booked with 'remaining after being forbidden and resisting an officer.' . She was later removed in handcuffs. It is every citizen's right to speak up for their beliefs'.

She was placed in an Abbeville police patrol auto.

Hargrave has yet to comment on her removal. The organization says the actions of the officer as 'unacceptable and raise serious constitutional concerns'.

It's misty if the marshal got orders from board individuals or in the event that he was following up on his own.
