Earlier this week, a South Carolina high school student was violently arrested by a school resource officer after refusing to leave her classroom.

Niya Kenny, who witnessed her classmate being assaulted, was arrested as well — simply for standing up for the young girl and filming the incident.

The 18-year-old told reporters that she was shocked when officer Ben Fields flipped her female classmate out of her desk and dragged her across the floor.

She recalled her horror at seeing the large officer throwing around her 5′ 6″ classmate:

“A man used that much force on a little girl, a big man, like 300 pounds of full muscle. I was like no way, no way, you can’t do that to no little girl.”

The Spring Valley High School student reportedly failed to participate in math class and was asked to leave by the teacher.

After the girl refused to oblige the administrator’s request to leave, Fields was called to take action.

That’s when things got violent, and Kenny started recording. She recounted:

“I was screaming ├óΓé¼╦£What the f, what the f is this really happening?’ I was praying out loud for the girl. I just couldn’t believe this was happening. I was just crying, and he said, ‘Since you have so much to say you are coming too.’ I was like, ‘What??’ He went, ‘You want some of this?’ I just put my hands behind my back.”

Niya was charged with “disturbing school,” which her mother Doris Kenny questions — saying her daughter was just standing up for the girl!

Doris asked:

“Who was really disturbing the school? Was it my daughter or the officer who came into the classroom and did that to the young girl?”

We applaud this student who was reprimanded for standing up to the physical abuse she witnessed, and hope the officer is properly reprimanded for his actions.
