  1. Actually I would imagine that this girl wasn’t scared at all which is why she refused to obey. I think people need to see the “whole video” and not just the snippet where the cop takes her out of the classroom. The whole video would share how kids are learning to disobey the law and in turn are now given the lesson they can get cops fired.

  2. What can I say!
    First I didn’t take in account that for instance this started out as typical teenager behaviour with a competent teacher could have defused there and then. Than I am just shocked about how this is handled. Wrong on so many levels. In fact it doesn’t say anything negative about the teenager, she behaves like teenager sometimes do; testing how far they can go.
    What it proves is the inability of the teacher, the school as a whole and the police to deal these small conflicts. How will a teenager learn to deal with conflicts if their environment’s reaction on her behaviour is so over, over, over……, don’t even have an English word for it.

    That a policeman is called, and treat the girl as a serious criminal.
    I really shake my head and wonder why this happens in a country which still prides itself to be nr. 1.

    I won’t tell you Dutch police is perfect because they aren’t!
    Neither will I tell you our education system is perfect because it isn’t.
    But that something happens like in your post is unheard of!

    I also can’t ignore the thought: What if this girl would ha been white. Would the incident been treated the same? I wonder!
