In Florida, a Broward County Sheriff's Deputy named Willard Miller was recently arrested after grabbing a 15-year-old girl by the neck and throwing her to the ground.

Miller, 38, was the resource officer at Cross Creek School in Pompano Beach, a school for children with emotional or behavioral disabilities.


Surveillance video of the incident was released by the Sheriff's department and has gone viral online.

Miller has been charged with child abuse. After being suspended without pay, he turned himself into the police on Tuesday, November 5 and is currently awaiting trial on a $5,000 bond.


If found guilty, Miller's sentence could be as long as 5 years in prison.

In the video, the unnamed 15-year-old taps Miller on the leg with her foot. In response, Miller puts her in a choke-hold, throws her to the ground, puts his knee in her back, and handcuffs her.

Then, perhaps in response to the extreme threat posed by a handcuffed 15-year-old, Miller pushed her through a door into a wall.

Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony described the incident as "deplorable."

He commented:

"It's embarrassing, OK, when we have one individual that acts outside the confines of the oath that they take, it goes on every news channel, it spreads across the country."
"I'm tired of it. I'm going to fix it and I'm going to hold people accountable."

The Broward County Sheriff's Office has gained some negative attention recently for alleged uses of excessive force. In January, a now-fired officer was caught punching a handcuffed man while in his hospital bed.

After pepper-spraying a teen and slamming his head into the pavement outside a McDonald's, another pair of officers are also facing charges.

Miller will soon find himself before a judge and many people are hoping justice will be served.

People can be like those Kinder Eggs they used to ban in the United States (for some unknown reason). On the outside, you're getting something you think you know. A person might be small, appear timid, or made out of chocolate. It's the inside, however, you need to be wary of. Sometimes a person might be more talented or dangerous than you realize, and the other times they'll probably just embarrass someone who deserves it with those hidden talents.

Anyone who's taken a biology class knows you can't fight genetics. What we're made of is decided long before we're even a twinkle in our biological father's eye. Sometimes that kind of inheritance can be a benefit, like good bones, healthy skin, or a resistance to all foodborne illnesses. On the other side of that genetic lottery...is all these stories.

Let's face it––some things will never stop getting under your skin. Your complaint might be entirely legitimate, too. That dude who you run into at the supermarket never places her shopping cart in the cart return. Your boss is an ass. There are fires burning in the Amazon and people in power are exhibiting a rather laissez faire attitude toward the matter. You know, the usual.

What line of business is generally more corrupt than people realize?

Tucker Carlson makes many wild claims on his Fox News opinion show.

And being labeled an opinion show is how Fox News justifies his sharing of conspiracy theories and White House rhetoric with no factual basis.

But his latest claim that poor, working and middle class Americans are as transphobic as Carlson ruffled feathers online.
