They tried to isolate him in some kind of time out area, which probobly made the situation even more scary and confusing for him. When he tried to get out of this time out area by climbing a dividing wall police were already there to attempt to subdue him. At that point police officer Calkins ripped the child from the wall by his limbs like a ragdoll, causing his face to smash against the wall, which resulted in a massive black eye . He was then wrestled to the ground by police and taken into custody.


This breaks my heart. Any one who know or haves Autistic children know sometimes they can be out of hand, but they need to be handled in a different manner. The police here are way out of line man handling a small child like this. Also on top of this they arrest a 9 year old for aggravated assault on a officer WTF
Then deny him his constitutional rights. Surprise this has not hit main stream news yet.

Mods I think we need a Thread for Police Brutality/Abuse of Power as these posts are becoming more common

What the hell were the teachers doing?
Blind leadership? no need to question throwing a nine year old into the wall...the police know best

Whoa! a 9 yr old?

I mean even if he wasn't Autistic... but the fact he is?!

I mean this cop should be in prison, even if the kid wasn't Autistic but the fact he is I honestly feel he needs to be punished and greatly.

If a 9 yr old autistic child is not safe from the insane brutality of police, then who is?

How many more times must this happen before people stand up and demand action taken?!

edit: I had no idea they could charge a 9yr old with such an offense! Remind me to stay the hell out of Illinois.

There is NO EXCUSE!!!

If that were my child....I dare not say what I would do on a public forum.

Stories like this honestly make me sick, I mean this is a child and autistic child to boot! Who in their right mind handles and any child like that? They bang his head off a wall and then charge him with aggravated assault? Talk about insult to injury. I hope these cops get held accountable for their use of what is obviously excessive force.

I'm surprised they didn't use tasers.

Every time I Post on ATS it goes to BTS so I thought I would be safe and post it here. If a Mod feels it needs to be higher up he or she can move it. That's why I called for a forum dedicated to the 5-0. It seems stories of shootings, beatings and rapes are starting to come up everyday.

If a "citizen" did this they'd have their heads on a pike.

There is a private police officer forum, that a won't mention here...but you can easily google police forums and find it; where they frequently refer to citizens as animals and sub human scum etc...you'd be surprised what they say when they think, the public can't see it in a private forum among brothers of the shield.

Reading there, I can safely say; The child in your post was just another little animal, making their job as zoo keepers difficult...

how is this anybodys fault but the parents... if the kids autistic they should have known ahead of time and they would have went about the right way to handle the situation. But just because he is autistic doesn't mean he cant be a lil sh*t. Sometimes you cant even tell a kid is autistic, no excuses...

I couldn't agree more.
I get pissed if my daughters boyfriend talks to her in the wrong tone.
I personally know quite a few children who have autism and they are all so talented and creative. If this was to happen to one of my friends children I know exactly what they would do...

My apologies, for some reason I thought this was on ATS, as I had a million windows open hehe.


It is awful though, these stories are more and more common it's so much that I know we have had to become somewhat desensitized as bad as that sounds but we all just allow it to continue to happen. I mean nobody is suppose to do these kinds of things to another person let alone a child. A mere baby.

He was in a special school to handle his needs, parents yes maybe but what if his parents did this, the boy would be taken away and they would go to jail etc. I don't think a cop throwing a child against a wall is any sort difference they should be put in jail for child abuse.

Yep, he's autistic and they should know how to handle him, if not they should find another job.

I hope your not working in the education system.

Doubt it, the kid was probably fighting the cop. You make it sound like they walked in the classroom, picked a random kid, and slammed his face in the wall for no reason. If that is the case, the police where wrong and **** them..
