    The end of the story?

    'A US police officer has been fired after video showing him throwing a female student across a classroom was shared widely on the internet.

    Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said that Senior Deputy Ben Fields "did not follow proper procedure".

    He was a school resource officer at the school in South Carolina.

    He "should not have thrown a student - he could have done a lot of things he was trained to do, he was not trained to throw a student", Sheriff Lott said.'

    Great news.
    Now what about all the other cops in the US who have needlessly killed members of the public?
    Slowly getting there.
