My wife is in the legal profession in Lafayette. She's never worked with Fontana personally. She said when his name comes up in discussion with other lawyers the words they all use is slimeball or sleaze. He's a worm. This was basically an attempt at consolidating power. The teacher being thrown to the floor is getting all the buzz. But at the same meeting he nominated someone he's never met to replace another school board member who has cancer. The guy he nominated is a yes man to one of Fontanas yes men already on the board. Great school system, my son is a sophomore there and has gone to school in the parish since pre k. But that's on the teachers, not the administrators

I was out hunting when this "hit the news".

From what I have learned...... this woman asked a question [about the school superintendent $ 30,000 per year raise] and this subject was not on the meeting agenda.

After this, I have not seen or heard what actually took place.

I am guessing she was told this would not be discussed but kept pushing the issue. I don't know if the School board superintendent asked her to be seated ..... or leave the meeting. OR.... did the officer [without being asked??] try to "calm" the lady and/or did he ask her to leave????

The film clips on the news..... make it look like the lady kept "disrupting" the meeting before heading out of the room.

There is a gap in the film [women was standing up at the meeting with the officer confronting her...... and then they showed the lady on the hall floor in handcuffs.]

In the hall film clip, it looked like the lady was resisting the officer.

Who is at fault???? Did the lady continue to disrupt the meeting after she asked about the salary raise? Did the lady "resist" the officer when he was trying to get her out of the room? Did the officer use unnecessary force in this situation? The film showed the officer helping the lady to get up off the floor and then he was holding on to her arms to direct her down the hall. IMO.... no excessive force shown.

We / I don't know enough information to say who was at fault. But.... IMO, if the lady would not have done or acted like she did..... this situation could have ended without making the NEWS.

There was a full video out there originally...
She was called upon to speak both times, but cut off because she was asking question and only comments were to be made not questions....

Not at all correct. She did nothing to disrupt the meeting. They had just approved the Super's raise at the meeting, and she was questioning the rational for the raise. The Board voted to give him a raise because the District's ranking had improved from 17th to 6th since he took over 5 years ago. She raised concerns over it, because teachers had not been given a raise in a decade. I believe she was right in questioning the decision, because who has more of a direct wffect on those rankings? Not the Super.

She was recognized, and then when she started questioning their decision on the raise, the President, Fontana, wanted her removed from the meeting.

This has been an issue for months. A board member passed away a few months ago. Prior to that, the board was deadlocked 4-4 on the issue. Fontana then appointed a member who would side with him, against the last wishes of the deceased member and his family, and the deadlock was broken.

My wife is from Vermilion Parish, and Fontana has been an issue for years now. People have finally started speaking out about the questionable decisions he's making. ****, they reportedly worked a car into the new contract for the SI as well, and other potential raises to go with it.
