She acknowledged that she isn’t personally aware of what happened before the video started rolling, but she said even if her son was the one fighting the force would be excessive.
DeKalb County Schools released a statement to Channel 2:
"The DeKalb County School District is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of its students and staff. The images in the video are troubling. The video also depicts an attempt to conclude a disruption involving multiple students, including some that failed to comply with directives by staff members."
Brown’s son was suspended and charged with simple battery, she said.
Channel 2 said school district officials wouldn’t comment on whether the employees were disciplined because of policy against speaking on personnel matters.
