San Antonio Cop Under Investigation After Slamming 12 y/o Girl on Her Face

A San Antonio school police officer is under investigation after video surfaced showing him body slamming a 12-year-old girl on her face.

The clip was uploaded on Tuesday and shows a San Antonio Independent School district police officer, Joshua Kehm dragging Janissa Valdez, a sixth grade student at Rhodes Middle School.

In the video, Kehm lifts her up and slams her down with a thud,  slamming her face into the floor.

The officer, identified as Joshua Kehm, has been placed on paid administrative leave.

She hit her head so hard on the pavement, she initially didn’t even remember the slam.

KSAT12 reported  she suffered a swollen bruise near her right eye after her face hit the brick floor.

“You could actually hear her head hit the concrete. That’s what hurt me the most,” Gloria Valdez, Janissa’s mother, told the local outlet. “And he didn’t even seem like it bothered him. And he still handcuffed her after she was unconscious.”

The officer told the concerned mother he “did what he had to do at the moment,” Valdez said.

Officer Kehm has been placed on paid administrative leave while the school administration and the district police investigate the video.

Kehm had been a police officer with the SAISD for a little more than a year, according to his LinkedIn profile. Before that, he was a non-lethal weapons instructor for the U.S. Air Force, his now-deleted profile listed.
