Earlier this month, teachers at a middle school in Nanyang City in Central China destroyed their students' cell phones in front of them.

A video was captured of the event, showing the teachers soaking the phones in a bucket of water, and even taking a hammer to the devices. As the phones were smashed or dunked in water, the teachers read the names of the students the phones belonged to. The video has since gone viral, shocking many.

School administration had warned the students that they would confiscate and destroy cell phones brought to school without permission. Many of the phones destroyed were confiscated after students were caught playing with them during class. 

Many netizens took to the comments section to express their disbelief and disgust at the display. Some even said that the teachers were crossing the line and breaking the law by destroying personal property. Others thought it would be best if the phones were given to the parents after they were confiscated. 

School administrators stand by their decision, reassuring netizens that the parents were cooperative as it was supposedly for the educational benefit of the students.
