Girl Power??

I had to write about this horrific news story. I read this first on feministing blog.

This sad, overwhelming story is about a colored teenage girl in Los Angeles who was badly beaten by school security officer because she did not clean up the mess created by dropped cake!! When her mother went to school to complain, she was suspended from her job at school district.

You can watch the video at Fox that was recorded by a student on a phone camera. The students, as reports, have planned out a walk-out. You can read the entire story here.
