This 2-minute video kind of scared the crap out of me. You?

It's the fight of a lifetime. Buildings crashing down. Fires raging. Water slamming down the streets. It's like every disaster movie you've ever paid $12 to see in theaters happening all at once. Only this time, you don't get to eat popcorn and complain about the person behind you accidentally kicking you in the head during the big final battle scene. We need to fight this thing. Together. (Seriously, if aliens were doing this to our planet, we would be marching in the streets.)

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline — year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

The scene was captured below by YouTube user Chris Rosa, who attended a board meeting for Vermilion Parish Schools in Louisiana.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)



"We work very hard with very little to maintain the salaries that we have," Hargrave, who teaches middle school language arts, said during a public comment portion of the meeting, stating that she's seen classroom sizes balloon during her time at the school with no increased compensation. "We're meeting those goals, while someone in that position of leadership [the superintendent] is getting raise? It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher in Vermilion Parish."
