Baltimore Cop Anthony Spence slaps student around, but was he justified?

Anthony C. Spence faces second degree assault charges. He was caught on tape slapping and kicking a student around. Spence says the student spit on him. His attorney Warren Brown says these students are different. Browns said “You’re dealing with some kids who are antisocial, lead-poisoned, irrational, angry, mired in poverty and despair”.* He went on to say “It’s not Leave It to Beaver. You’re dealing with a tough group of people.” So what does this mean? The school is free to do whatever because these students are not worthy of protection? Would this be viewed as acceptable if a white cop was caught wailing on a kid in this same way or would this be a case for Black Lives Matter? Watch the clip and tell me if this kid deserved to be treated this way? Share your thoughts.
