(Reuters) A Florida high school principal has been removed from his job after commenting online in support of the Texas police officer who resigned after a video surfaced showing him manhandling a black bikini-clad teenager and pulling his gun on other black teens, according to officials and local media.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools said in a brief statement on Wednesday that North Miami Senior High School principal Alberto Iber had been removed. It added a replacement would be announced shortly.
The statement did not specify what prompted the move, but stated that district employees "are required to conduct themselves, both personally and professionally, in a manner that represents the school district's core values."
