Photo of principal restraining student goes viral

CALIFORNIA - A photo showing a California principal restraining a teen is now viral on the internet.

The principal said he was breaking up a fight between a male and female student and that he had to restrain the girl because she refused to stop fighting.

"It certainly is not a description of what actually happened; I think the disappointing aspect of it is the comments that associate the postings, ranging from racist comments to derogatory comments," said

Ten students were suspended for sharing the photo and adding demeaning comments.

Many students said the suspensions were too harsh and that they were just exercising their freedom of speech.
