PATERSON, NJ - The #1 trending video on social media is a video from January showing a Paterson John F. Kennedy High School student body slamming his 62-year-old teacher because the teacher took away his cell phone.

In light of recent news of the South Carolina student who was involved in an incident earlier this week over a cell phone, people have been reposting this Paterson school video which depicts what some say is the other side of the national debate. 

National media commentators have been speaking out both in disgust for the video showing a School Resource Officer grabbing the student and in support of teachers who may encounter students who may not comply with the rules in school.
