More Proof Don Lemon Is An Asshole, CNN Host Says ‘We Need To Know More’ Before Judging School Cop Who Manhandled Teen Girl

DonLemon

Today, most of America is outraged by the video of a South Carolina school police officer body slamming a teen girl and dragging her out of her seat at Spring Valley High School, but Don Lemon isn’t convinced the officer was wrong.

“I’d like to know more before passing judgement,” Lemon said on CNN.

“We don’t know what happened. You weren’t sitting in the room, Sunny. You don’t know if she wasn’t standing up. You do need to know more, and as a prosecutor, you should want to know more,” Lemon added.

Former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin wasn’t trying to hear Lemon’s plea to give the officer (who allegedly has a history of getting violent with students) the benefit of the doubt.

“The law provides that the standard here is whether or not the officer has to use this type of force. Whether it’s reasonable and necessary to somehow secure discipline in the school,” Hostin said. ‘The bottom line is, Don, this is a young girl. This is a girl in school. There is no justification for using that kind [of force]. Whether or not that force is justifiable is the issue, and the force is not justifiable. She is sitting there, she is not resisting, she is sitting there in a chair. That is unreasonable force, that is excessive force, and it’s assault.”

Although Lemon admitted the disturbing incident “does look horrible,” he reiterated “we don’t know” what happened before it was captured on video.

Right, Don, because slamming a girl to the ground and tossing her around like a rag doll is totally how you react when she won’t put her phone away in math class.

    Yet another ludicrous comment from one of societies New Blacks. Don, like Ben Carson, keeps foolishness flowing from their mouths. I guess no one should be surprised at anything that comes out of Don’s mouth.

    Don is ridiculous! Really? But, believe it or not I actually know some black people who think had she just stood up then this would not have happened and we don’t know all the facts. The fact that he used force and very excessive force at that is the issue. Don is an idiot!

      From what is being said about this officer she probably was scared to leave alone with him. She probably thought she’d be safer in the class. Also we (adults) are applying or logic to how this girl should have behaved. We know teens don’t process things and danger in the same manner and quickness as adults.

      He’s doing it for the fame. Nobody has the right to drag a child like this. If you reacted the same way this cop did you’d be in jail by now.

    How dare he minimize the absolute assault against a nonthreatening young girl. How dare he claim to be such a voice for independent thinking, when he’s a real Negropean voice of the status quo. I’m not surprised. He is known for putting his own people under the bus or sugarcoating the epidemic of police terrorism and other injustices in the world. A person like him should know a thing a two about injustice. There is no justification for this cop to use such a heinous action against a child. Don Lemon is a total disgrace to our people.

    Excessive force, the way he threw her around recklessly he could have
    broken her back or caused other injuries. It doesn’t matter what
    happened prior, if she resisted him, cussed him out or anything like
    that there was no reason for it. This officer has a history of violence and should have been there in the first place.

    At this point its safe to say that Lemon has become the poster boy for nee-grow coonery. His concern with what happened before the video is pointless.
    We have a lunatic cop, with a history of violence that brutally assaulted a child, caught on tape, a punkass teacher that stood by and did nothing and a class full of children that appeared to be frozen in their seats!
    FOH with that BS Lemon!!

    Face it, aggressive cops aren’t going away so here’s the conversation we should have with our kids. “Honey you may think people are treating you wrong, but if they ask you to do something at school, do it anyway. If you think it’s foul, come home and tell me and mom about it and we’ll talk to the principal. I want my child, if asked to do something to do it. If you don’t, the first thing they’ll think is, does she do this at home? Do the parents allow this kind of behavior? Cause if they call the cops and they meant to call the fuzzy wuzzy one, the aggressive one might show up instead.” Life’s like a box of chocolates … (thank God she’s not hurt)

      GTFOOH with that respectability politics bull.

      “If you don’t, the first thing they’ll think is, does she do this at home”

      No, the FIRST thing they are thinking when they see it’s your Black kid is ‘let’s take this nigger down’. Someone mentioned above that this cop has a history of violence in this school, and maybe she was scared to leave with him. Plus, she is a TEENAGER-they do not process things the same way we do as adults. Second-let’s talk about why she was being asked to leave class to begin with just because she would not answer a math question–was that enough reason to call a cop?!

      Negroes like you make me sick. You are cut from the same cloth as that nigger who stood by and watched a young girl being beaten, and held back the crying kids who were trying to help her.

Yes, they need to hit him where it hurts (his wallet and his…) Sorry, Truth, I just had to add that because he needs a good sock in his manhood. Yeah, isn’t that something. Who would’ve ever though Fresh Prince would be old school. I sure miss shows like that.

                    The cop did get off. He certainly need to be punished economically. I have a feeling that he may be prosecuted, because of the pressure. If there was no pressure, he would have gotten off completely. Fresh Prince was ahead of its time.

              My brother retired from the force early as possible because he was sick of the inherent racism in police departments. We lived in upstate NY, and there was a white kid who was running around with a rifle threatening to shoot (back in the 1980’s). The white cops who showed up TALKED to him and got close enough to him to struggle with him and take the rifle. My brother said he and all the other Black cops were truly disgusted and angry because we all know how the reverse would and has go down. Even as a retired cop he was not delusional to spout that ‘just play nice’ bs with some of these white folks.

No grabbing her out of the car, throwing her to the ground, kneeing her in the back, nada.

                  I have noticed that this apologist Johnny said “Stay hidden and slang grits, thats all you’re good for.” So, not only did he disrespect black women, but he is a misogynist too. I always find that many of these reactionaries are misogynists as well. Sister, this Johnny character should be totally ashamed of himself. It’s a disgrace that black women have to dealt with this misogynoir. I have your back and I have the backs of other Sisters here, who are in solidarity with the victims of police brutality.

                      He or Johnny certainly has an agenda and we all know what it is. It is the same old tired misogynistic propaganda that many people embrace. He is a stubborn male who refuses to seek correction. The good news is that I do feel that more people are waking up. It’s so unfortunate though that many of our people have to be unified more in the midst of tragedies. The young teenage Sister is going through a lot and we have great empathy for the Sister as black people.

          Exactly. A 7 year old baby executed by a white cop (who is walking around scot free) sets the tone for the environment that fosters a beast like this gorilla thinking it’s acceptable to brutalize our kids like this. They are all the same, there is no more time for thinking if we speak nice, “comply” (which sounds like some Nazi propaganda mindset) etc. everything will be fine when encountering these savages.

            Right on Sister. History proves that complying with an oppressive system doesn’t work. A barbarian killed a 7 year old girl and recently, another barbarian assaulted a young black teenager. The police officer should have never been in the classroom in the first place (when similar situations would merit much of a more difference response) . The fragrant assault of black youth is disgusting. Our heroes from members from SNCC to the Black Panthers taught us a long time ago that playing “nice” with brutes will not cause liberation. That is why we believe in resistance against evil. I commend the Sister who recorded the footage since she showed more heart and strength than the cop and the teacher combined.

So he called an administrator, who called a cop. This girl was not even loud, didn’t threaten anyone and wasn’t even a disturbance.

          The point is that this situation has nothing to do with the parents of the child. This situation has to do with the action of a power hungry, barbaric cop who acted irrationally. Vintage legitimate called out respectability politics since acting passive towards injustice is not a solution. Some people have to reject the myth of the omnipotence of the police institution. There are many great children who were the victims of police brutality. Being a productive member of society is standing up for the victims of excessive force and to stand in solidarity with black people who are fighting for justice.

                          Pssst– Black people dont have to shine shoes any longer to make money-pass it on.

                          And who cares where you live or what you have? Typical special negro symptom-you desperately need to believe conscious Black people adhere to stereotypes, to make yourself feel better. Do you think you are better than the single parent who is struggling to make ends meet, or the student who has no parents and no adult guidance but they are determined to make something of themselves? You are an old man and there is nothing wrong with that. But you are too old to be bragging to anonymous people about possessions you claim to own, when that was never even called into question. Do you visit other websites where whites make jokes about dead Black teenagers, and brag to caucasians about your car? I am betting you do not because you know they dont care, and neither does anyone here.

                          The fact remains-police brutality in this country is rampant. If you continue to think attacking a teenage girl was appropriate, and claiming “her parents failed her” then you are a punk who deserves to be stopped and beaten one day while you are driving thru the wrong neighborhood. Or even just tackled and thrown to the ground while innocently standing outside a hotel, or stopped by a cop who reaches for his gun while you complied by reaching for your wallet. See how much they care about where you live, should be interesting.

                          And your poor kids-when their father is not holding up a lantern on the lawn he is posting their photos and telling all their business on the Internet. For someone who claims to have worked in law enforcement you are not very smart about personal security. But I imagine the fumes from having your head so far up white asses is clouding your judgement.

                          btw if simply having a retail job is your measure of success for your kids, you have set a low bar for them. With you as a parent that was one of the smartest things you have done, kudos. Suggestion: you might also want to tell them not to pick up any toy guns where white people might see them, or have a car accident and need medical attention, asking random white people for help. If they do get into trouble, maybe they could just tell thecenraged white person with a gun that they have never been in jail, they work at Home Depot, and their daddy has a pension cuz he had a good gubment job.

                          Since you justify the assault on a young girl, when you post a photo of your kids’ mother make sure you choose a pic of her without a busted lip or black eye.

If we can teach our kids how to behave, we can teach them how “not” to behave. You took what I said, twisted it and started dissin. You’re sick and need a doctor.

                We now see all these cops shouting “stop resisting” while they are beating unarmed people who are not presenting a threat at all. Everything that is happening reminds me a lot of the novel 1984 with the “doublethink” and “doublespeak” terminology. Fascist cops are trying to make us believe these terms mean maintaining social order, when they really mean accepting that the government has the legal right to abuse citizens. People like the clown in this thread and Don Lemon have been indoctrinated into this belief for various reasons.

                  This overt violation of our civil liberties have been going on for a very long time too Sister. It is just that today,we have more video footage of the abuses. The wild thing is that the police in many instances still get off when video footage clearly shows police brutality. Many of these cops do say “stop resisting” as a tactic when they are on tape, so they can try to escape accountability for mistreatment. The manipulation of language and the issuance of propaganda are very common today. The unconditional support of the police is truly a debased philosophy that we repudiate completely. That Johnny person (who omits that law abiding black men, black women, and black children have been victims of police terrorism for a long time in America. This situation has nothing to do with the parents, but the actions of a thug in blue) is deluded and misogynistic also. Don Lemon has been selling out and even Talib Kweli had to check him on one occasion. Fascist cops who violate human rights have no respect from me at all.

          There’s just too much to say to you, but let me begin by saying how dare you make assumptions about Vintage. She was dead on about respectability politics and to say she lives under a rock is clearly a deflection because it is YOU who is living under said rock. Next, this officer is NOT her parent, and if he was, in this day and age, he’d be arrested for child abuse. I guess only cops can beat the tar out of a child with no repercussions. In fact, parents of old used to physical abuse their children with extension cords and other kinds of weaponry, but that didn’t make it right. Regardless of what she did, she did not deserve to be thrown down (the last time I checked, talking back wasn’t a crime,) and tossed across the room like a rag doll. You are just like that Black male (not man) teacher who stood there and let this atrocity happen. I’m so sick of punk coonish Negroes who don’t have the fortitude to stand up for Black women. For you to justify this, Russell, means you are evil like this cockroach officer.

              Yeah, I see why you’ve been called every name in the book. One would think you’d learn by now, but like you said, you are immune. Anyway, my mom always said, “Never cast your pearls before swine,” so peace out.

            I meant to say earlier but thank you Noirluv, this is so sweet of you to defend me like this.

            The interesting thing about this crime is that it was only the students who showed any compassion or sensitivity towards this little girl, and of course only another Black girl who stood up. That teacher’s name and face needs to be made public as well and at the very least I hope the Black parents in this school get him fired. We have to call these negroes out.

              Awww, you’re welcome, Vintage. I’m like, “No, I’m not letting that jackass go in on you like that.” Vintage, it’s a dang shame that that teacher and other students, except for that Black girl, didn’t stand up to defend this young lady. It goes to show us that we have no defenses. I agree wholeheartedly that that punk teacher’s name needs to be put out there because he’s clearly a punk. He couldn’t hand this child, so he calls some White man to take care of her. He has the audacity to stand there and let that beast abuse her. SMH. Yes, we have to call these negroes out!

                There is a changedotorg petition to hold everyone accountable who was involved in this crime, including the school officials and roach teacher.

                btw aside from the great use of smart phone cameras to capture these crimes, it’s an interesting time now re: civil rights protests in this computer age. Did you see where the hacktivist group Anonymous released the names and credit card numbers of 1,000 klan members?!! That is some gangsta stuff right there. It would be fantastic if they could also reveal the identities of high ranking law enforcement officials as klan members.

I heard about the threat to release the names of Klan members. I didn’t know it had already been accomplished. I want to see that list. Gangsta for real, Vintage! I LOVE IT. Yes, let it extend to law enforcement and other public officials. Let’s see behind those hoods.

          If your mother stood by and watched a grown man beat the hell out of a child one third his size and saw nothing wrong with it because she felt like the kid was in the wrong, yes I agree she taught you your lawn jockey lessons well.

          Plus we are not talking about parental discipline, we are discussing a grown man brutalizing a kid,, racial profiling and brutality. Deflection 101 does not fly here either.

          I don’t have kids but I know human nature. My mother never threatened to “have that ass” because no one in my family was a violent savage who took pride in beating their kids. And now you don’t have a problem when white folks do it for you. That kind of bestial upbringing is perhaps the reason why you became a cop, but rest assured this type of brutality is being brought to the surface more every day.

              So true about that barber shop intellect mentality. These nigras believe they are dropping science on the corner. And you are so right about the difference between respectable and respectability politics. One is being a conscious citizen, the other is thinking the white man won’t beat your ass just because you smiled big and wide at him.

              And white men were still beating the hell out of us and walking away scot free, and nothing has changed. Which is the topic of THIS convo, not what your neighborhood elders did before your mama came home.

                Once again, Vintage you keep missing MY point. Kids need to bey their elders. It’s how I was raised, and my bet is its how you were too. Here, I’ll make it simple. You know how “NO” means NO? Well “LEAVE” means LEAVE. It’s what they told the little girl. Then in comes kick butt and take names copper. (You never know what you’re gonna…)

But I get that since your mug is out there you have to keep up the shoe shining, it’s important for you to keep getting invited to the cop barbecues.

    I don’t know why people take Don Lemon serious or give him attention, the guy is knee deep in coonery and buffoonery. The way people are twisting themselves in knots or going against basic logic of what they see with their own eyes when it comes to this video is just sad and laughable. You really can’t help or understand people like that and frankly I don’t want to waste the time trying to do either. CNN rarely gets my views and Don Lemonhead never get it but I will be here for the laughter once he gets the boot.

    This just proves how fake/ bought and paid for Don Lemonhead is–I had the great misfortune to hear the TJMS this morning, where on radio, Lemon is saying there is no excuse for this, it looks bad, blah blah. Now on air in front of the good white folks…we have this…Anything for ratings and a dollar dollar bill ya’ll.

          Exactly Sister. Many things that the New Negroes won’t talk about deal with Pan-African Unity, exposing the system of white supremacy, and promoting the development of the black community explicitly.

    lemon is not the only one having doubts about this incident — danny cevallos, cnn, slowed the video down and explained what he saw — the young lady actually punched (or tried to punch) the sro when the sro had his arm around her neck. there was also some concern that she may have kicked (or tried to kick) the sro when the young lady’s leg got caught in her chair when the sro was pulled out of the chair and tossed on the floor like a rag doll. in other words — this young lady assaulted this poor white man and caused him to fear for his life.

      They always have to find an excuse to justify their evil. If she did hit him, it’s because he had his arm around her neck while throwing her down, the stupid idiots.

    When police present videos…they’re taken face value and accepted…there’s no, “well I need to know what else happened before the video started rolling…” nonsense from the media. But when someone records something from a cell phone…it gets heavily scrutinized and branded as amateur video that doesn’t tell the whole story. You can’t have it both ways.

    no matter what that girl did, she was a minor. What that officer did was horrible, slamming her on her head and dragging her like that? She was not a criminal, I mean come on, a man killed 9 people and got taken to burger king, and you wanna drag a child? if she was doing something wrong, you take her by the arm and walk her out of the classroom. you don’t treat her like she is less than human.

    Forget Don behavior, racism is alive those impartial what ever if White pupil you know results placid response. Obama, you say “Stop Crying” do the same no more denying discrimination superior attitudes of some not dumb. Law suit doesn’t matter he was fired seek settlement to prevent this bigotry matters. South Carolina along gangs whom killed Odella Williams (1941-2014) Hip Hop” bought shame to Blacks!
