    Well, that's just not true. There have been several cases of children being arrested and tazed lately and as I recall they were all white. This isn't about race....it's about the police abuse of force. I swear, I bet I could create a thread about yard sales and someone would turn it into a race war. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I just don't think arresting children should even be IN the police protocol.

    I don't know the situation surrounding this case but it might have been more for her protection if she was going crazy.

    What I don't get is that schools can arrest young children for their outbursts yet they turn a blind eye on bullying. Screwy.

    But to put handcuffs on a child? Sounds like the adults are not fit to handle overly excited children or a rowdy situation.

    Police are not baby sitters. If you don't want someone arrested for committing a crime then don't call the police, deal with it on your own. If you can't deal with it then you call the cops and deal with the consequences. Police are supposed to follow the letter of the law regardless of age, race or whatever difference you can come up with. The penalty and the law are then decided and interpreted in court.

    If you want to blame someone blame the school for not being able to supervise the child or even better blame parents that can't raise a more well behaved child. This is not abuse of force, they had a kid that couldn't be controlled that threw down a shelve and injured a teachers leg. They restrained her so she couldn't continue her tantrum and injure someone else. Blame the right people if you are upset about a kid getting cuffed, don't blame the police.

    They will arrest and handcuff children on the DC subway for eating. (HUGELY verboten!!!!) They did it to a 12 year old girl and it made the news. But kids can hit and fight back, so they cuff them for everyone's safety.

    Most bullying happens outside of the school nowadays. Texting, facebook. Bullying happens and you would never know it. Being told you can't sit at this table at lunch or not inviting someone to your birthday party. Bullying is very hard to stop. The verbal and physical kind is easier to stop but the emotional is not

    In these current times I see nothing wrong with what was done.
    You can't even grab a child ruffly, be you a teacher or cop, for fear of being charged with some sort of nonsense.
    The handcuffing of this one was done for the protection of her getting hurt, and the legal protection of the officers whom have to waste their time handling this stupid brat.
    A child who behaves like that is nothing but a reflection of what they see and hear at home.
    I'm "only" 29 and I NEVER saw children, even poor children, act this way growing up. At the school I went to, if someone did act up they were manhandled a bit by the Commandant of the school. (Grabbed by the back of the neck, or smacked in the mouth.) And rightly so.
    This certainly had nothing to do with race. (As some have tried to incite here to bring out all the "Sharpton"ians and start a flame war.)
    Simply about a brat who rec'd "seemingly" harsh reaction because of a very litigious society.

    I get your point bigeasydude, but if the cops or school officials had tried to restrain her and she was say accidentally bruised while thrashing about in a tantrum, we would be having a discussion of how abusive the school authorities were. It's a slippery slope.

    I saw a 8 year old the other day the police arrested and were going to charge with making terroristic threats because he threatened to beat up two kids at the bus stop.

    Time to build a junior juvie hall.

    She vandalized school property and threw a bench that injured the Principal.

    How should this have been handled?

    curious,

    From what I understand, she became so disruptive that she was breaking things and injured a teacher. They were scared not only for the other student's safety, but also the disruptive child's safety. I think the decision to arrest this child was a prudent one that kept the school from being liable because they did what was necessary to protect everyone involved. As someone else pointed out, kids need to learn early on that this sort of behavior simply isn't going to fly, and actions have consequences. Lock her up, and don't let her out until she finishes her homework icon_lol.gif

    Par for the course for a child with psychiatric issues. A kid of some 10 or 12 years old in ATL was shot by police after he threatened them with a machete. He had already begun to break through a bedroom door in an attempt to kill his mother and a therapist.

    I do think a better solution would have been a straight-jacket and a trip to the funny farm. Don't expect police to allow a "wild child" to rampage in a school. The child had already attached teachers.

    All of you liberals to to rant well on this one. It's a taste of what law enforcement should always do in the given circumstances.

    Has nothing to do with race and although you don't know this child but for her picture and a short article, you seem to see fit to refer to her as not only a brat but a stupid one. Compared to who, you? Or 6 year old's in general?

    And don't comment on how she acted when even the parents haven't been told the details yet. If it was a tantrum, like the article describes it as, then she just has the average probably spoiled behavior of any child her age. Because I seriously doubt you've never seen a child throw a tantrum for not getting a toy or candy at a store in all your 29 years.

    Threw a bench? Or a chair? It's a six year old girl...

    Also, where are these random, probably blown out of proportion details coming from? Because I've never seen a six year old boy/girl generate enough force to injure me. icon_confused.gif

    A child misbehaving like this BRAT was, has nothing to do with race. It had to do with its upbringing. AS I SAID.

    I shouldn't comment on how she acted? Really? Uhmm....hey there Einstein, she acted badly enough to be deemed out of control by people whom work with childrenicon_exclaim.gif
    And when I have seen a child throw a tantrum in my 29 yrs, (which IS unaccepatable and a complete reflection on how it was raised.), I have seen it get the smack that it deserved to end it.

    Whoops, my mistake; it was a shelf. And the details came from the Washington post, available on google. You do have google, right?
