The girl had kicked and punched her teacher in the course of a temper tantrum and had calmed down in the meantime. Prosecutors dropped the charge the next day, and the officer involved has been fired. Investigative journalist Ben Swann shares his reaction. He says the officer is "a fool" and that he "uses his badge to bully and to intimidate" and to harm the people they're supposed to help.
