How long will it take for Officer Fields to say that he "feared for his life," which caused him to assault her? #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh

Black children aren't children, Black girls aren't girls. #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh

During slavery Black folks were lynched for reading. Today a Black girl was brutalized for sitting at her desk. #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh

Not here for the "maybe if she cooperated" brigade. We know what happens even when we cooperate. #assaultatspringvalleyhigh

Don't kid yourself that #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh is only in South Carolina. We've seen police brutalize black girls across the country.

The #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh is all too common: white cops assaulting black girls. If you're surprised, that's also part of the problem.
