San Antonio Cop Fired After Body Slamming 12-Year-Old
A San Antonio, Texas police officer who was caught on camera body slamming a 12-year-old girl has been fired from his job.
Joshua Kehm, an officer for the San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) police department, became the subject of viral outrage last week when a video surfaced of him picking up sixth-grader Janissa Valdez, tossing her to the ground, and then handcuffing her as she lies motionless. The incident itself occurred March 29.
Kehm was reportedly intervening to prevent a fight between Valdez and another girl, though Valdez claimed she wasn’t attacking the girl when the officer picked her up. Valdez also claimed the body slam briefly knocked her out.
