So in the end, the last resort was to call in the resource officer who also tried several things ending with bodily removal because the girl was apparently incapable of understanding that she should just put her cell phone away or hand it over or leave the room.
It is called anarchy, and it is disruptive. So the teacher tried several things and tried to get the girl to leave the room.
odd Rutherford, the Columbia, S.C., attorney representing the assault victim, revealed his client is a recent orphan living in foster care.
The girl broke a school rule by using her cellphone in class, but the teacher could have spoken to her quietly, even when she refused to surrender it, rather than delay the lesson for everyone else, said Geoff Alpert, a University of South Carolina professor and expert on police violence.
Lott suggested another possibility: "Completely ignore her. She was the one who was suffering."
Delaying consequences can be effective, said Larry Thompson, a former Kansas teacher who consults with schools via his "Responsibility-Centered Discipline" program.
"Time often helps the brain get out of the fight mode," Thompson said. "The old model of classroom management does not fit the new model of what our kids need."
Even when the girl refused to leave her seat, Alpert wonders, "Why didn't they call a school counselor? She's not doing anything to hurt anyone. She's just being disruptive."
Attorney Todd Rutherford questions why the deputy was "brought into a classroom to deal with a student who was sitting quietly, simply not wanting to leave class." He represents both the girl in question as well as another student who challenged her treatment. Both are charged with "disturbing schools," a misdemeanor publishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Apparently 100s of students have walked out in protest fro the cop. So since they are breaking the rules should they get body slammed as well?
It means the cop isnt nearly as bad a guy he is made out to be, but it only takes once right?

It's funny how everyone thinks the misbehaving child is the result of them being "good" or "bad" or undisciplined. They're a product of our messed up society. Sending in a resource officer to choke slam someone doesn't fix the root problem, plus it's very easy to cause injury like paralysis when you slam someone by their neck.
About 100 students at a South Carolina high school walked out of class briefly Friday to show support for a school resource officer fired after video showed him throwing an uncooperative black female student across the floor, according to local media and Twitter feeds.The students walked out of classes at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, S.C., around 10 a.m. and gathered in the atrium to express their views on the firing of Deputy Ben Fields.
Some in the crowd — which included both black and white students — wore T-shirts reading "Free Fields" or "#BringBackFields."
This girl did not deserve what happened to her. I'm sorry you can't seem to understand that
I am quite shocked at how many people think children being dragged out of class like that is ok......
