Police officers are taught to assess the situation and apply the required amount of force when needed.

Did this police officer go too far?

Here’s a video that shows a resource officer at Cedar Ridge HighSchool in Round Rock throwing a student to the ground.

Many feel like the police officer went too far. Others argue that the video doesn’t tell the whole story, and that another video shows an escalation of a situation that may explain the excessive force.

KVUE in Austin reports that both the school district and police have investigations underway.

Watch the video below, the vote in the poll below that and tell us what you think.
