Louisiana teacher handcuffed, taken from school board meeting

A teacher in Louisiana was removed from a school board meeting Monday night and put in handcuffs after bringing up teacher salaries. After Hargrave posed several questions, board president Anthony Fontana ruled Hargrave out of order, warning her that the public comment section was not for a question-and-answer session.

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.

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. The disturbing incident took place after Hargrave asked school board members to justify the massive raise while teachers and school employees had reportedly gone without a pay hike in years.

'Sir, I am way smaller than you' she cries as he pushes her out the door of the building.

"You need to leave, or I'm going to remove you", the unidentified marshal says on the video. Other board members did not respond to emails seeking comment. She was later removed in handcuffs.

Hargrave later raises her hand and when called on again asks a question about the issue of teacher salaries and pay raises.

"I don't think it needed to come to the extreme that it came to", she said.

The instructor was called upon a moment time for input and, in the wake of offering another conversation starter, the unidentified Abbeville city agent marshal on obligation snatched Hargrave and expelled her from the gathering. The Abbeville Police Department did not arrest the teacher.

"I personally apologize for the Vermilion Parish School Board", she said, adding, "This is a sad day for Vermilion Parish".

The Louisiana Association of Educators has weighed in and said the association's attorney is working with Hargrave on what to do next.

Hargrave grabs her purse and leaves as some protest that Superintendent Jerome Puyau had been addressing the teacher even as she she was being forced to leave.

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave spoke up during public comment and said, "You're making our jobs more hard". Any action that infringes upon this right is unlawful and unacceptable.

It is unclear if the marshal was acting on his own accord or on the orders of board members.

Requests for comment from Hargrave and Puyau were not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.
