A shocking video has emerged of a cop attacking a peaceful female student in a classroom in South Carolina. 

The footage emerged on Monday, which shows a male school resource officer at Spring Valley High School grabbing the female student by the neck and throwing her to the ground whilst she was seated at her desk.

Vice News reports:

Columbia’s Richmond School District Two issued a statement that said officials are “deeply concerned” about the incident and working with the local sheriff “to conduct a thorough and complete investigation.”

“Student safety is and always will be the District’s top priority,” the statement said. “The District will not tolerate any actions that jeopardize the safety of our students.”

The statement added that the school resource officer has been directed “not return to any school in the District” until the investigation is completed.

The officer was responding to a student who would not leave the classroom, according to Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott.

“The student was told she was under arrest for disturbing school and given instructions which she again refused,” Lott told South Carolina TV station WIS.
