6 year old handcuffedSubmitted by bierdegarde on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 11:38
A police department in Milledgeville, Georgia is standing behind a cop’s decision to arrest a kindergarten student in her school after she had a tantrum in class.
Acting police chief Dray Swicord told WMAZ-TV Tuesday that he continues supporting one of his officers’ judgement to arrest 6-year-old Salecia Johnson after she threw a tantrum at Creekside Elementary School Friday.
“Our police states that any detainee transported to our station in a patrol vehicle is to be handcuffed in the back,” Swicord. “There is no age discrimination on that rule.”
