“SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Independent School District has launched an investigation into a possible case of excessive force after the release of a video showing one of its police officers throwing a student to the ground at Rhodes Middle School last week. Officer Joshua Kehm intervened after two female students became verbally aggressive toward each other about 4 p.m. March 29 at the West Side campus, SAISD spokeswoman Leslie Price said.
The video, which was posted to YouTube on Tuesday, shows the officer struggling to restrain a female student, identified by her mother as 12-year-old Janissa Valdez, as other students stand on either side of the pathway, some frowning, others smiling and laughing, using cellphones to record the incident. Some students can be heard urging the girl to “chill,” then the officer suddenly throws her down.”
