Full Story Of Chicago Student

A new surveillance video shows Chicago police officers push and drag a student down a set of stairs at Marshall High School on the West Side before punching her and shocking her with a stun gun multiple times.

"Those officers filed a false statement", Stroth said.

The new footage-culled from the high school's security cameras-appears to vindicate the teenager's story as well.

(Laurentio Howard) Two Chicago police officers are being reassigned after a physical confrontation with a 16-year-old student was caught on camera by her father.

"The city of Chicago's lack of directives, oversight and standards pertaining to its police officers in its schools has resulted in the violation of students' civil rights and unnecessarily involved students in the criminal justice system", the lawsuit said.

Chicago Police claimed that Dnigma bit and kicked the officers and that one of them fell down the stairs while trying to escort her from the building.

"The Board of Education and CPD continue to fail our children", he said. Police said her actions led the three of them to fall down a flight of stairs, causing all three to be treated at local hospitals. Apparently unprompted, the officer then appears to grab her and throw her down the stairs. She was charged with felony aggravated battery.

Dnigma then manages to sit up but the officer with the taser keeps a foot on her leg and the other controls her arm. The Chicago Sun-Times notes the charges were dropped on February 6. Police say Dnigma tried to bite one of the officers. "I told them they didn't need to do that", her father told the Chicago Sun-Times.

In the cell phone footage Dnigma is seen on the floor as two officers stand over her.

Graham said she should be recharged.

"To ensure a thorough review of this situation is conducted, we are asking the district's Office of the Inspector General to review the matter and we will fully support the ongoing investigation by the City's Civilian Office of Police Accountability".

A report from the Inspector General's Office a year ago was critical of the way police officers are used in CPS schools, finding neither institution kept track of which schools the officers worked at and asserting that officers lacked specific training in how to approach conflicts with students. While they are starved of much needed funding for education, American schools have been turned into fortresses, complete with metal detectors, surveillance cameras and armed police officers.

"CPS strives to create safe and supportive learning environments for all students, and this disturbing incident has absolutely no place in our schools", Chicago Public Schools said in a statement, via ABC 7. Stroth says the case can also be a "catalyst to influence police reform".

Pierre and Trip have been transferred away from the school, although the department and city haven't told reporters about further actions against them, according to CBS affiliate WBBM.
