La. Teacher Handcuffed At School Board Meeting After Talking About Pay

Teacher handcuffed by police for criticizing pay rise at school meeting

The Constitution prohibits the government from punishing or retaliating against people for expressing their views, and the fact that a schoolteacher was arrested at a public meeting of the school board is especially troubling. Handcuffs were later placed on Hargrave as she was removed from the building.

Deyshia Hargrave, a teacher in the Vermilion Parish School System, asked questions regarding the board's consideration of a $38,000 raise for the superintendent of the school system. A teacher's union lawyer is investigating, and while teachers were at work Tuesday, a School Board member says there is talk of a strike. Hargrave is an English language arts teacher at Rene A. Rost Middle School in Kaplan, Louisiana, according to the school's website.

Deyshia Hargrave, a middle school teacher in the Vermilion Parish school system, was videotaped being escorted out of a room and then wrestled into handcuffs by a city marshal on January 8.

When the city marshal told her to not resist, she replied, "I am not!"

The Abbeville town marshal's office, which made the arrest, the superintendent's office and the school board president all declined further comment on the incident. She was later released on bond.

The incident started when Hargrave spoke up during public comments about the superintendent's new contract.

"Hold on, I am way smaller than you", the woman then said to the marshal as he shoved her toward an exit.

"What happened here tonight, the way that females are treated in Vermilion Parish - I have never seen a man removed from this room", she said.

"Stop resisting", the officer warns Hargrave as he handcuffs her.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", Hargrave said during the meeting.

Hargrave bonded out of jail, The Associated Press reported.
