I find it interesting some people even think her using a phone for so long in class is acceptable or at least not disruptive.

That video has me completely confused.
Why is a cop in a school classroom anyways ?
Did the student commit a crime earlier and the cop followed her to school or something to make an arrest ?
Or did the teacher phone the police ?
I don't get it.
Most US high-schools have an officer that patrols the school now a days. Larger schools might have more than one. My old high school is pretty small and they have one. He showed up after an idiot brought a gun to school to show off to his friends.
Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Niya Kenny, 18, is speaking out after she was taken into custody in her Spring Valley High School math class. She says she was standing up for her classmate who was being arrested by Student Resource Officer Ben Fie
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Tuesday that the video shows the student hitting the officer who had been called to the class, but that his internal investigation did not concern the student’s behavior. He told reporters that, although the student “was wrong for disturbing the class, I’m looking at what our deputy did.”
Witnesses report that the student had taken out her cell phone in class and then refused to turn it over to a teacher. The teacher then brought in a school administrator, who asked the girl several times to leave the classroom. After the student refused those requests, the administrator requested the assistance of the deputy.

Are you defending her for being obstinate? If she had simply put away her phone the first time, this wouldn't have happened.
Lott has said the girl was uninjured aside from a rug burn. However, the girl's attorney, Todd Rutherford, told ABC's "Good Morning America" that she "has a cast on her arm, she has neck and back injuries." He says she also has a bandage on her forehead because of the rug burn.
