Out of control is out of control as you say
Yet who has the control - Teachers not allowed to restrain
Cops allowed to restrain
Cops don't make laws they do their job
Who do cops work for - You as public servants or some other public servant that works for a master who is a puppet for hidden ones
And you wonder why some say we are nought but slaves to secret agendas
It is who makes such laws that limit the control of both parent and teacher that the finger should be pointed at
So who is in control

Yeah, let the police subdue a 6 year old throwing a tantrum since nobody else could possibly have the resources to do so.

This is inviting a normalcy of big bro coming to keep the peace because it's like people are too afraid to take any kind of action themselves from fear of legal repercussion.

This is too easy.
Principles and teachers should visit the student's homes to assess the
impact of the classroom experience. Where they go is for everyone's safety.
Police car outside for assistance if needed.
Should save time before the child brings drugs and weapons to school for
show and tell. My lunch was ripped off by some sociopath and never used
that room again. Children we will save your lunches we will help lower the
glut of sociopaths in the schools. Soon get them off the net and elsewhere.

Children more often than not have a reason to throw a tantrum.. and need to be explained to why what they are doing is wrong.

Knowing the American Criminal Justice system.

She was probably taken to the station to be sexually assaulted by police officers.
Then put into a holding cell with criminals.

By how the schools and Police are acting over this just give her the chair, Fry her ass that will be a lesson to the other kids better than expending all the resources on discipline and explanation.


Economics and Authoritarian regimes IE the Police Force and Military are throw backs from ages of Feudalism and Serfdom.

We are meant to evolve not stagnate, This is also the reason a-lot of scientists do not shy away from debates on Euthanasia.



These are all just symptoms of the larger problem of Humanity being disassociated with itself.

Take 3-4 revolutions a day
And a heavy dose of compassion at lunch time.

See you on the Bell curve.

Plus they didn't even read the article. I've forgotten the number now, but it was either 5 or 7 phone calls to the mother that went unanswered. I still don't agree with the police involvement, and definitely not with the actual charges, but calling the mother wasn't an option. I'm thinking duct tape and a chair, or perhaps a broom closet might have sufficed until the mother could be reached.

If they can't get hold of the parent, one of three things is done. One, the child is kept near the principals office or the nurses room. If they're in a state of high anxiety they may be sent to the hospital, and social services could in an extreme circumstances begin screening processes to determine risks and history.

However, police are NEVER called.

My father was a teacher. My uncle went from masters in physics and off to work in Australia at the one of the then 3 nuclear fusion facilities, but changed his mind last minute and became a teacher. My mothers sister, now retired, was a special needs teacher. One of my cousins is a teacher.

What no local shrink at the health dept that could have been called in to evaluate the child since the mother or in case of emergency contact couldn't be located? Sounds like the kid could use at least an evaluation. For those that have never been in a mental hospital. I have seen kids as young as 5 or 6 that needed to be there either for there protection as well as others. Makes you wonder what's in the food, water and air. Especially the town this took place. You should here how people talk about this area the girl is from. They claim it's a crap hole and the police are corrupt. Sad situation.

In extreme cases the court can "cause" a child to be treated. I'm not sure this mother is really in denial or if she was trying to be cool for television. It's doubtful this was the first time this little girl has acted out like this. Of course there is always a first time, but it seems unlikely the parent was unaware her daughter was capable of this.

And it might only be "behaviors", due to poor parental practices, or something else, however it sounds like an outburst of an emotionally disturbed child. To me anyway. Just saying.

ETA: "Loco Parentis" means the school functions as the parent while the child is there. They can and do call police at times, the Juvenile police DO have the authority to restrain, and some aids and teachers in Sp. Ed. classes might be trained to restrain also.

Was this a regular 6 year old or one of those little foul mouthed monster's from tha hood? It matters, trust me. If it was one from the hood, he was just showing the kid where his future home would be. Getting him/her used to it.


Nah, Just kidding, cops these days suck and America is gonna drop a hammer one day, who doesn't see that coming. America is a bit like an old car right now, hard to get started, but oh boy when it does, it won't be like a foreign-made Chinese piece of crap. As 'The Cult' said, "Can't tame the American Horse".

Reminded me of when my youngest brother would throw a temper tantrum. Maybe the thought of jail might of settled him down. He threw Eveready Energizer Bunny tantrums. The only thing that we could do to make him stop was to throw him in a bathtub of cold water. He would scream bloody murder for a few more minutes, then it was over. After a few of those cool downs all we would have to do the stop the tantrums would be to say "Cold Water". BS if that was child abuse.

As for the little girl getting handcuffed, OP, all I can say is you never dealt with a 6 year old throwing a temper tantrum. The police probably did it for safety reasons in addition to it being Standard Procedure.

Now we have a situation where little precious was abused. If it happened 50 years ago, the parents would be shaking the cops hand and thanking them.

The girl was out of control for one of two reasons. She either has an undiagnosed emotional or mental disorder or her parents have not raised her with any sense of respect for herself or authority. Although unfortunate, the incident will benefit the girl and her parents in the long run.

If her behavior is not related to a health problem, child services should investigate her home environment. My dad told me before I went to Kindergarten that I should be well behaved and respectful and if he ever got a word or a hint that I was misbehaving then I would get the spanking of a lifetime. I got a reminder once every school year, but I never needed it because I knew he meant business.

I read that the parents were planning on contacting Al Sharpton, but I know that church going families from all ethnicities rarely tolerate spoiled children. They may get a response they aren't expecting.

Right?

What's she gonna do while in the back if she didn't have the cuffs on huh? Slip her hands through the grate in the patrol car and snap the cop's neck like a twig so she can escape? Ha! Yeah right!

America is a disgusting country these days, run by disgusting people, and their laws are enforced by morons.


I had an extremely emotionally upset son in my car who took his seat beat off and tried to hang himself with it while I was driving. Hell, yes use hand cuffs. Not a joke.

Yup. If any teacher or administrator lay a hand on that kid and they can flush there career down the toilet. That is the way it works.

The job of the police is twofold.

Serve and Protect: The officers in question were serving the school district and protecting the public. The Constitution does NOT have an age limit on citizenship, and this 6 year old is NOT above the law.

Enforce the Law: This child may have broken multiple laws during that outburst including assault.

I'm just glad the kid didn't have a gun.

Too bad they did'nt taze the little animal while they were at it. If the let teachers spank these little punks like they used to they would'nt need the police.

I hope they will have her mentally assessed by professionals. There could be something such as mood disorders or bipolarism going on here.

With child abuse laws as they are, I can see why teachers and the principal might have been afraid to restrain her. Their whole careers could be put on the line. It's sad when we are reduced to this.

The only guilty ones in this instance are the parents.
