VIDEO: ROCKFORD FAMILY FILES LAWSUIT, CLAIMS STUDENT, Parris Moore, SUFFERS BRAIN INJURY AFTER THROWN TO GROUND BY OFFICER

Moore's grandmother, who got the call to pick him up, said the school lied to her about what happened. (Read More Here).

"I proceeded into the school and see my grandson suddenly right in the doors, handcuffed and in a wheelchair, shaking so bad he could barely move," said Parris' grandmother, Diane Moore. "They informed me that there was a little struggle with Parris and he slipped and fell."

The release of the video by Moore's attorneys has led to an outcry in Rockford's school community. A board meeting Tuesday night got heated as parents and school board members went back and forth about what happened.

"Did the staff who witness this make witness statements? Did those witness statements reflect what was on that video? What are you going to do to ensure this doesn't happen again," Mel Champion, a parent from Auburn High School, asked in a Youtube video meeting.

"I do wish people would keep in mind that when they are told things, or when they see a clip, a very short video clip, they have not been told, they may not have been told the whole story. They may not have all the information," said Tim Rollins, the board vice president for Rockford Public Schools 205.

"He's a very smart, fun kid to be around but now it's like he just drifted away," Stephene said.

Stephene, with the help of her attorneys Wednesday, has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Rockford Police Officer Bradley Lauer, the City of Rockford and the Rockford Public Schools Board of Education, among others.

"School officials and police treated a minor, nonviolent disciplinary issue as if it were a violent crime and used deadly and unreasonable force against a diminutive, 14-year-old student," she alleges in the lawsuit.

"He slams him headfirst. The brunt of the impact is to the left side of his head," said Al Hofeld Jr., the family's attorney. "Parris was knocked out cold when he hit the floor. He's unconscious and limp for several minutes is shown on the video."

The impact led to a four to six-inch vertical fracture of the teen's brain, according to the lawsuit, which was shown in scans released by his attorneys.
