The young lady who was tossed around the classroom in South Carolina, is actually an orphan who lives in foster care.

Even though her identity hasn't been released it’s the goal of her foster mother to protect and care for her as well as she can considering the circumstances. She communicated that the young victim is devastated and emotionally traumatized by all that has happened to her.

I think the Daily News said it best:

School, as you can imagine, could be particularly tough for a young girl who has experienced so much pain and loss in her young life. To think that she has now suffered police brutality and is facing trumped up criminal charges for age-appropriate classroom behavior is just despicable.

In an interview with the Daily News, Todd Rutherford, the Columbia, S.C., attorney representing the assault victim of the recently terminated Deputy Ben Fields, revealed that his client, in addition to suffering injuries on her face, neck, and arm, is a recent orphan living in foster care.

I guess that answered the question I asked yesterday "Where are her parents?" This is a sad situation, you never know what some one else is going through. I'm sure the people defending the man's actions will find another excuse on why this type of behavior was justified.
