Video has come out of a school resource officer, or SRO, tasked with performing law enforcement duties in an educational environment—attacking a student today at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, S.C.

According to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, the female student and a male student were arrested for disturbing the peace.

The police officers' actions are already starting to be defended. The young lady was resisting arrest and deserved to be thrown down. She should've listened to what the officer had to say are the typical excuses. A man should never put his hands on a woman like this. Especially a young lady at school. This is child abuse. I wonder what she did to deserve this? The officer has been put on administrative leave. He should also be mandatory drug tested, this looks like steroid rage.
