During a press conference today. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott addressed the public about the disturbing video out of Spring Valley High School where a white officer is seen pulling a student out of her desk, slamming her on the ground, dragging and arresting her. The young black woman is not seen resisting arrest or inciting violence in any way.

In an attempt to explain what the actual fuck this officer was doing, Sheriff Lott offered this helpful biographical tidbit about deputy Ben Fields:

OH OK, WELL IN THAT CASE. Nevermind then. Nothing to see here.

It seems Ben Fields got that special cure against racism where a white person receives a lifetime vaccination when they date, marry or have sex with a person of color.
