See Teacher Get Handcuffed After Criticizing School Superintendent's Raise

"Quit opposing", the officer is heard advising her after she was put in binds.

A Louisiana teacher who spoke out against a superintendent's new contract was handcuffed and arrested during a school board meeting in an incident caught on video.

It remains unclear why Hargrave was handcuffed. 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. "I am smaller than you", she said. A 4-4 deadlock became 5-3 in favor of the new contract as the appointed member voted in favor of the renewal, she said.

She started to walk sideways through the assembly to leave, as some protested, noting that Mr. Puyau had started to directly address Ms. Hargrave just as the marshal tried to eject her.

Hargrave had asked several questions at the meeting, with board president Anthony Fontana responding she was out of order, declaring the meeting was not a question and answer session.

Told a statement, 'As an organization that advocates for the dedicated school employees of Louisiana, we firmly denounce the mistreatment of Ms. Hargrave, a loving parent and dedicated teacher serving the students of Vermilion Parish.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", Hargrave was seen saying in a YouTube video.

Deyshia Hargrave, an English dialects expressions educator at Rene Rost Middle Schools in Kaplan, stood up to class load up individuals amid general society remarks segment of the gathering and was escorted out the second time she moved toward the platform - bringing about a fight in the passage. The Abbeville Police Department did not arrest the teacher.

The way that females are treated in Vermilion Parish, I have never seen a man removed from this room. Board members had always been split on renewal of the superintendent's contract, but the death of a board member in November changed the composition of the board.

The department said it has received numerous emails and phone calls about the arrest.

'It was comments for the superintendent, ' Hargrave continues.

It's misty if the marshal got orders from board individuals or in the event that he was following up on his own.
