The behavior of a security officer in a middle school in the US state of Wisconsin sparked great controversy and upset responses. A camera monitored the moment a quarrel broke out between two school students a few days ago, but the officer’s intervention exacerbated the situation.

In the video, the policeman appears as he throws a 12-year-old girl to the ground, crouches on her and puts his knee on her neck, while the school says that it is an attempt by the officer to break up a fight between two students.

The Independent newspaper said the police officer is under investigation after the video clip reminiscent of the killing of George Floyd appeared.

The 17-second clip does not reveal what happened before or after the moment the camera caught it.

The incident sparked outrage, and some drew comparisons between it and the killing of Floyd at the hands of a police officer in Minneapolis.

After Floyd’s death, police forces across the country banned the use of such restrictions.

In June 2021, Wisconsin lawmakers banned police from using strangles except in life-threatening situations or in which police had to defend themselves.

The girl’s father earlier re-published the video on his Facebook account, and said that his daughter said that her neck “hurts very badly” because of what the officer did to her.

“Look how this coward put his knees on the neck of a 12-year-old girl. My daughter was complaining about her neck as it hurt so bad.”

He continued, addressing the police, “Didn’t you kill an adult man like this, now you want to do it with my 12-year-old daughter?”
