Sorry this is a bit long, but I was a bit upset with the maturity level of some of these comments.
First off, how are none of you seeing this as wrong. A six year old girl was locked in a prison cell. How many of you would have liked to go to
prison at 6? She was probably terrified and confused, which is most likely the reason as to why she was lashing out, don't you think?
Getting put into a prison cell is completely different then being locked in your room. One is a metal cage where you have a hard cot to lie on and
absolutely no privacy. The other is the comfort and security of being in your own home, with the things you see everyday and knowing that you can
open the door and go see your mommy and daddy if you want to.
Second, every school has a police officer on campus grounds, though most schools call them school resource officers and they don't always dress in
their police outfit. The school shouldn't have to call the police at all, the school resource officer should have been able to handle it, thats
their job, so why wasn't theirs there at the time all this was happening?
Most of you basically keep saying that she knew what she was doing, seriously, what 6 year old do you know that throws a temper tantrum and
understands why they're doing what they are? Have you all gone insane? Children get upset, sometimes they throw things, ITS NORMAL!! I can almost
guarutee that if you asked her she would say she didn't mean to hurt anyone she was just mad and shes sorry, children do it everyday, do we need to
start arresting every child that throws a toy?
I believe both the school and the parents are at fault, the school should have done more to calm the child down. While continuing to call the mother,
it doesn't matter how many phone calls it takes, they should never have called the police without first informing the mother, it absolutely not ok
for them to have done that. And how come they only called the mother? What happened to dad, grandma, aunt, family friend? Schools have a list of
people to call, thats why they send out those papers for parents to fill out, they have emergency contacts so that if they can't get a hold of the
parents they have someone else to call. Those of you trying to blame the parents with this "they obviously haven't done anything to control the
child" stuff is really disappointing in the amount of intelligence I'm getting from you. How is the parent supposed to know that "on this day, at
this time, in this classroom my child is going to get upset and start throwing things?" It is not totally the fault of the parents! It is also the
fault of the school. And none of you have taken into thought that, yes the school did call the mom said number of times, but no you did stop and
think they maybe, just maybe, she was at work like the rest of the world and she couldn't to her phone at the moment? You are all adults, most of
you probably way older than me; why is my common sense better than yours and how are only seeing that this 6 year old girl is a bad guy? Please,
before you comment on another story THINK about the situation!!!
Again, sorry, I didn't mean to make it a long post
