A Louisiana school superintendent is speaking out about the controversial arrest of one of his teachers. Deyshia Hargrave was taken into custody Monday after questioning the superintendent's pay raise at a board meeting. The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana said the episode raised serious constitutional questions and that it was investigating.

Deyshia Hargrave, whose removal in handcuffs sparked internet outrage, made the remarks to The Associated Press before a Thursday rally of her supporters in the city of Abbeville.

"When the media leaves, I still want people at those meetings". She asked board members why they were raising the superintendent's pay - which was about $110,000 before the raise was approved at the meeting - when teachers had not received a raise for years. What's more, I'm dismayed at this and you ought to be as well.

"How are you going to take that money, because it's basically taken out of the pockets of teachers?" she said, prompting School Board President Anthony Fontana to bang his gavel.
