The taxpayers of Fairfax, Virginia, were informed this week that they would be required to pay tens of thousands of dollars to compensate a school resource officer who lost control of his emotions and assaulted a 5-year-old little child – for singing in Spanish class. Pamela Ononiwu, a 37-year-old mother of three, recently resolved a lawsuit against Fairfax County Public Schools for her son's horrific abuse while in their care. Ononiwu's horror began on Oct. 3, 2018, when she went to pick up her son, DO, to take him to a dental appointment. Ononiwu could hear her kid crying in pain as she approached the principal's office to take him up. He was being assaulted by a policeman — or, more precisely, he was being held in a chokehold. "To my surprise and dismay, I discovered my kid in a chokehold," Ononiwu stated. "He was being held at a 90-degree angle by this school resource officer. My kid continued trying to free himself, and the tighter the hold became."
