High School Security Guard Pushes Female Student Down Stairs [Video]

Security guard pushes female student down stairs

A high school security guard was caught on video pushing a female student down a flight of stairs while a group of students look on and do nothing.

The male security guard then kicks the girl before someone finally comes to her aid. The student gets up off the ground and lunges at the guard, who then punches her back onto the floor. The short video, which first appeared on World Star HipHop, doesn’t show what happened prior to the guard pushing the student down the stairs. However, some students said the victim was about to fight another student, and the guard was trying to break it up.

The incident happened Tuesday at Dunbar Vocational Career Academy in Chicago, the alma mater of Jennifer Hudson. and the student was taken to the ER for treatment. The girl’s family quickly hired a group of lawyers.

“We are shocked by the unjustifiable assault committed by the CPS employee,” the family said in a statement provided by attorney Alex Abate. “The video and the egregious actions of the CPS employee speak for themselves.”

The unidentified victim’s lawyers said they are investigating whether the security guard has committed similar offenses in the past. Several parents said this wasn’t the first time the security guard has had altercations with students.

“I wanted to come up here and that wasn’t even my daughter,” Dunbar parent Phyllis Russell said. “I’ve had words with him and I think they take their job a little too serious.”

Chicago Public Schools officials haven’t identified the security guard or said whether he works for the school district or a private firm.

“The safety of our students is our top priority,” CPS spokeswoman Becky Carroll said in a statement. “CPS takes matters of employee misconduct very seriously, especially when it involves the safety of our students. Once CPS was made aware of this incident, immediate action was taken to suspend this individual and an investigation is ongoing.”

The security guard has since been suspended.

    How else are you going to domesticate those blacks. Most need some roughing up regardless of age.

    This was crazy! But yes every school should have secerity

    He should not have done that but what was the student doing right before the push happened? What is her part in this incident? I am not blaming her I am just trying to understand.

    They need security guards to protect against that security guard….His tail would fry if that were my child..At no time should an adult treat a child in such a manner….He is there to protect, not harm.

  5. Iva Oxendine

    There is no reason for the security guard to do that, he should be fired and prosecuted. I don't care what she did, there are better ways to handle the problem.

    Typical scumbag security guard. Listen to his comments. He thinks he is untouchable in a explosive situation. Same deal with bouncers in a bar. A bunch of meat heads with zero intelligence. F that loser!

    This man should lose his job and suffer criminl charges. He is there to protect the students, not assult them. He's lucky he didn't seriously injure her or even kill her. I know a couple of people who died after a bad fall down the stairs…and the way he pushed her would have caused her to fall with a much greater force.

    rumors was she wanted to fight another student but still he had no right to push her like that–if that would of been my child I would of been in jail

    Even if he was trying to stop her from fighting another student, didn't give him the right to push her down the stairs and then go down and kick her, he is just a big bully and needs to be fired on the spot.

    That is assault and battery plain and simple. If he was trying to break up a fight then it was done before this video was on him. School security should be trained properly and it seems this man was not. You are supposed to stay between the two fighting and send them on their way until a school official can escort them to the office to be dealt with. If in serious cases the guard would have been required to restrain her. That would be by holding her down on the ground to protect the other student. Regardless… Neither situation happened here. This is assault and battery on a minor no matter what way you look at it. Now this girl has to live her life in front of the world. The embarrassment that she has to endure because of this idiot is ridiculous. I would sue for punitive damages, hospital bills, in addition to the criminal charges. I would sue him personally, the school, and the school district for being negligent in their training of personnel and/or not doing background checks. We have shootings in schools, and now we have people there that are supposed to protect our children HARMING THEM? Fix the problem. The problem is the system. All teaching should be done via computers online. Supply that for children will be much cheaper than funding an entire school, paying light bills, water / sewage, etc. Get it together folks.

    I hate saying, but that girl is going to get paid plenty for the damages caused by her injuries. Not an excuse, I hate authoritative brutality, but have faith in the restitution provided by the system. Everything will be okay with her and hopefully we learn some lessons for the future. No comment about my rage for those who easily prey on others.

  12. Renee Allen

    Suspended? Seriously, that's it? Why was this "man" not fired? In addidion to losing his job, this ass is probably a wife beating, child abusing loser who should never be allowed to hold any position of authority. The young girl's parents should bring criminal charges against this loser.

  13. Tory Williams Jr

    that kind of a Security Guard we need in Prison not some School…Charg'him with Batery…fire his azz'….let her family deal with his azz'…

    I would like to have more details before passing judgement on either party involved. I've worked in a high school and things can get out of hand very quickly.

    Yes, he should be given whatever punishment is appropriate for assault against a minor in that state. Regardless of what HE thinks the girl did, there is no excuse for handling a child like that. Even if she provoked it or hit him first, etc. That is all bull in my opinion because she is a young girl and clearly was no match for him.

    yeah you saw after he punched her he changed his tune and tried to help her up. I think someone realized about 5 seconds too late just how bad they screwed up. I'm sorry breaking up a fight or not, he shoved her off the stairs and you could hear him cussing at her.

  22. Michele Perry

    I heard one of the students say,"you're going to get fired" and he said,"I don't give a fu*k". He will when his ass is in a sling! Did you see the size of that guy? I don't care what the "reason" was, that girl could have gotten killed!

  23. Michael Musicman Garceau

    Who knows what to believe in this day and age? Maybe the student opened her big fat mouth; maybe he's a jerk…WHO KNOWS…SHEESH.

  24. Andrea Bode

    Well you hear him say "don't you put your hands on me" well as much as I think this is wrong I always expect to be hit back when "layin" my hands on a person weather its a man or woman.. But do to this being a student there are many other ways to handle this. But she should learn her lesson and know better then to be swinging at whoever she wants just cause she can…This is all sorts of effed up!

    I don't blame him. Jesus himself couldn't spend an hour in that school without losing all faith in humanity. The poor guy has to deal with the worst ghetto trash day in day out for minimum wage. Sure what he did wasn't justified but don't act like you wouldn't snap and do the same. Get off your pedestal. Don't forget these aren't little angels. Watch some of the videos on WorldStarHipHop and tell me those kids aren't future welfare cases and crackheads.
