Though I'd like to see more of the child's history too, especially her school history and behavior, I'm more on the "this was probably the best option at the time, for the safety of ALL, including the girl" side of the fence, based just on what I see there.
That girl could have seriously hurt people and herself and I've done the bear hug, papoose method thousands of times on kids, it would not have likely been very effective on this child-given the people in the situation(ie, not likely trained, and this girl was seriously out of control). It might have caused more harm than good.
But you can't simply let a child act like that, you NEED to stop them, remove them from the situation, at least. In whatever way is safest for them, and anyone nearby. Not really worried about the material items nearby, they're not real important in the grand scheme.
Something tells me that family needs some serious intervention though.
