High School Secuity Guards Attack Teen With Camera Then
School security guards in Palmdale, CA have
been caught on camera assaulting a 16-year-old girl and
breaking her arm after she spilled some cake during lunch
and left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning it up.
The incident occurred last week at Knight
High School in Palmdale and was caught on a cell phone camera
by another pupil who was then also assaulted by the security

The girl, Pleajhai Mervin, told Fox News LA
that she was bumped while queuing for lunch and dropped
the cake. After being ordered to clean it up and then re-clean
the spot three times, she attempted to leave the area out
of embarrassment but was jumped on by security who forced
her onto a table, breaking her wrist in the process.
Pleajhai also says that the security guard
in the picture yelled "hold still nappy-head"
at her, which at the time she did not know was a racist

In an even more shocking development the security guards
later had the mother of the girl arrested after she sought
out an attorney and demanded that the guard be arrested,
telling her that if she wanted the guard detained then she
herself would also be charged with battery after she allegedly
pushed the guard and an assistant principal of the school.
She has also been suspended from her job at another school
in the county.
The school expelled Pleajhai for five days
before then having her arrested for battery and for littering
(the dropping of the cake). Then they had the pupil who
captured the video arrested along with his sister who was
merely present at the scene.
A walkout is planned for this morning by some
students, after which the protesters will call for the firing
of the main security guard involved.
The incident serves as another unbelievable
case in the wave of police brutality sweeping the country.
In recent days we have covered multiple incidents of this
nature and have compiled
them into a page which will no doubt be added
to in the months to come.
