The family of a 6-year-old Georgia girl is upset at police and school officials after the girl was handcuffed and taken to a police station for allegedly throwing furniture, tearing items off the walls and knocking over a shelf, which injured the principal.
"Our policy states that any detainee transported to our station in a patrol vehicle is to be handcuffed in the back. There is no age discrimination on that rule," Milledgeville Police Chief Dray Swicord told WMAZ-TV.
and claimed the girl was shaken up by being put in a holding cell.

This is just sickening. There is no reason to hand cuff a 6yo. I just cannot believe that someone could not have taken her outside to let her cool off and then to the principle's office for a principle-parent "chat".
I attempted to calm Johnson down," he wrote in his incident report. "Johnson then pulled away and began actively resisting and fighting with me.

I quickly grabbed my handcuffs, and through the grace of god I was able to get them on the beast...saving face for both the department and myself...
