Black student, 14, choked and tooth knocked out by police officer at school


via Woodland Hills

A surveillance video captured the moments when a police officer choked Que’Chawn Wade, 14, and punched him in the face, knocking out his front tooth. The incident occurred in early April at Woodland Hills High School in Pittsburgh.

The video begins with the 14-year-old student sitting quietly in a classroom by himself while holding a notebook. Without warning, Officer Steve Shaulis grabbed the teen by the neck and began choking him. Shaulis wrestled Wade to the ground and began punching him in the face. The blows were so hard that the teenage boy lost his front tooth. The student was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and had to have surgery.

Although Officer Shaulis was the aggressor in the situation, Wade was charged with resisting arrest, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Wade could possibly be punished in juvenile court.

However, Shaulis has a history of violence against students. In 2015, another video captured Shaulis throwing a student to the ground and shocking him with a Taser. The boy received probation for disorderly conduct.

Four other students have come forward and said they were injured after being assaulted by Shaulis. One female student and her family are considering a lawsuit against Shaulis and the school district.

The incident reveals why resource officers should be vetted before they are allowed to work with students. Shaulis should have never had the opportunity to abuse students. He created an environment where Black kids were treated like criminals instead of students.

Shaulis has not been charged with a crime.

    I really hope the parents of these victims request this monster be fired immediately and also arrested for abuse of children.

    They should definitely make an example out of this race soldier posing as a cop.

    If this boy is charged with resisting arrest after the judge watches the video then the cop and the judge need a new line of work.

      Isn’t the entire historical episode disgusting, moreso, when minor children are the brunt of their despicable acts of physical abuse .
      The Shame Of This AMERICAN​ transgression against Black and Latin children is so reprehensible.

    First of all, the two administrators that were seen in the video taking part in holding the boy down with the officer should be charged too. From looking at this video it’s apparent that this school faces bigger issues as the administrators and teachers took part and ignore the brutal treatment of this young boy, they all acted as if this was business as usual at this school and this terminator officer is just the person that implents their orders. I wish I saw a video where grown men choke and sit and beat my child… they’d have to deal with me! These parents need to stop operating in fear and step up and file charges against this monster officer and the administrators involved that can be seen sitting on this 14 year old boy! Something must be done about the treatment of our children, we have got to get our mindset out of fear and stop injustices… this video makes me I’ll, I hope this officer doesn’t have kids or a wife…

    The parents / community need to catch the administrators and the security and beat the crap out of them. This is the only way to stop this type of behavior. Too many suspected White Supremacists and their supporters believe they can just put their hands on Black women and children with no consequences. Maybe getting their teeth kicked in would make them think 4-5x before doing this type of crap.

    Pardon my expression but all these men need to be strung up and dangling by the Nut Sack!!?

    Et la prochaine note sur son CV, se sera quoi? Assassiner un gamin Noir non armé?
    Ce Shaulis devrait être viré, jugé et emprisonné, mais comme d’habitude, aucune sanction.
    Chez moi, en France, on a exactement les mêmes. Ce n’est pas juste qu’en Amérique.

    If this was a parent discepling their child, that parent would be in jail for child abuse. Who is policing the police????
