JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — A video showing a man slamming a child to the ground near Jim Hill High school is circling social media.

Jackson Public School district held a meeting about the incident Friday afternoon.

Authorities with the school describe the video as disturbing. The video was taken during school hours outside of Jim Hill high school.

WARNING: The video below might be graphic to some

We’re told a student was being aggressive and campus enforcement was on scene to get the student under control. That’s when authorities say a teacher injected himself into the situation and slammed the student on the ground.

Authorities say it was uncalled for and those actions are not allowed.

Right now the investigation is still ongoing but authorities with JPS recommend that the teacher be fired.

There’s no word on the condition of the student.
