Gyasi Hughes, a 14 year old student at Round Rock High School got into an altercation with another student over a pair of prescription sports goggles. The school resource officers came to "defuse" the situation. The officer started getting physical and Gyasi didnt like that, so he slightly reacted (his reaction was obviously in NO WAY aggressive). The cop then choked him and took him down. If this isnt excessive force, then I dont know what is. From the article: "I was mad because he kept pushing me and touching me and I wasnt physically doing anything to him either. That's when I said 'can you leave me alone' and thats when he took me down," said Gyasi Hughes. Hughes' friend, Sebastian Vazquez was eating lunch when he heard the commotion. "In the beginning, I heard people be like ooh and stuff, and it was Gyasi and this other kid, they were pushing each other around," he said. But Vazquez says it was never a full-blown fight, and things got more tense when two school resource officers showed up. "Both cops got him in the corner, so I pulled my phone out to start recording because that seemed odd," said Vazquez.
