WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Lawyers for former cadets who sued a Salina military school over alleged abuse now say the school recently ordered all students to surrender their phones for a review of photos and videos.  Documents filed yesterday (MON) in federal court claim officials at St. John's Military School deleted hundreds of videos and photos related to the school from cellphones.  The court filing says one of the videos showed a staff member abusing a student, while some others showed abuse of former cadets who have filed suit.  In an emailed statement, the school denied destroying evidence related to the litigation. It says a longstanding policy prohibits students from taking pictures or recording videos — and that it recently erased a video in accordance with that policy.
