Punish Officers Accused of Hitting Teenager

balt-police-by-goblue85

Target: Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis

Goal: Fire two officers accused of assaulting a high school student for having “too much mouth.”

Two Baltimore police officers assigned to the city’s schools have been accused of slapping one of the school’s students. The two officers, Anthony Spence and Saverna Bias, have been charged with second-degree assault and misconduct in office. Spence has also been charged with second-degree child abuse as the officer who allegedly committed the assault.

A witness has said that Bias allegedly told Spence to smack the student because “he’s got too much mouth,” and Spence then smacked and kicked the student and yelled profanity at him. The physical incident was captured on cell phone video by another student. The student was not being arrested and witnesses have said that he was not putting up a fight.

Bias has been put on administrative leave, and Spence’s pay has been suspended since he has been accused of a child abuse felony. An internal investigation by the police’s school department is also being conducted. But even with the leave, suspension of pay and charges against the officers, they have yet to be let go from their positions.

The student was allegedly peaceful, only to get assaulted by an officer placed in the school to protect him. Write to the Baltimore police commissioner and tell him the officers should be let go from the force.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Davis,

We are writing to demand punishment for Anthony Spence and Saverna Bias, two officers accused of slapping and kicking a teenager at a school in Baltimore. Bias allegedly provoked Spence to slap a male student, saying that “he’s got too much mouth.” Spence then not only slapped the child, but kicked him and yelled obscenities at him, according to reports.

This is conduct completely unwarranted from officers. These men were placed in the school to protect students, not to assault them. The student was allegedly not resisting and was not even being arrested. The officers supposedly told him to leave the school and return home.

Charges have been brought up against the two officers, with child abuse felony charges brought against Spence. But even with these charges and Spence’s suspension in pay, the officers have yet to be let go. Although we may not know exactly what happened during the incident, a video shows Spence abusing the boy.

Regardless of what happened, this is an overreach in power and these officers should be let go at once. Please consider removing them from the force, as they have elected not to serve and protect.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THAT KID SAID TO RECEIVE THAT ASSAULT!!. All I know is that there are a lot of Big Mouth Kids, who want to show everyone, including the Police, that they can say and do almost anything, even Mouth Off to Police!!.
    So to everyone who says “My little Johnny wouldn’t do that!” chances are very high, that he Did!! There are too many parents that are afraid to give Discipline when, and where, it’s Deserved!!

    I stand by the Officers in this one!!.

    Also some of these kids, are the very ones, that are Harmful!

    • If you hold a position of authority and can’t handle a kid with a big mouth without using physical force, you should not be a police officer, period.
