No DA in the country is going to prosecute a teacher for taking an unruly 4 year old child out of a classroom by the hand.
If I'm wrong, I'd love to see an instance of conviction.
You try to take the child out of the classroom...to where? The child kicks screams bites and lays down?
What do you do? Already he may have caused himself marks from where you hold his hand, the words to explain are nothing like what is happening, you will look like an abuser.

Clearly the school screwed up and the parenting seems to be absent here. If the school would have used the paddle I am sure this thread would have been discussing the horrors of spanking a child. When I was a kid I got the paddle once. Then I weighed my actions carefully to be sure I had a better that 80% chance of getting away with something.
I don't have a problem with what the cops did here. The cops are the end result of where the nanny state has taken us. The school asked for their help. The best thing that could have happened is the cops walk away but they didn't. Now this turns into another cop hating thread?
