Homeschooling my child is looking pretty attractive these days because for the life of me I do not understand how a police officer could ever feel comfortable arresting (WITH HANDCUFFS) a six year old little girl.
Apparently in Florida at the Emma Nixon Elementary Charter School six year old Kaia got herself arrested for throwing a tantrum. The offense was so ‘bad’ that they had the child handcuffed, taken to Juvi, booked, mug shots taken and finger prints done.
read the story below:
Meralyn Kirkland says Kaia’s journey to the juvenile detention center by Orlando Police Officers began at Lucious and Emma Nixon Elementary charter school.
“What do you mean she was arrested, she said ‘there was an incident and she kicked somebody and she is being charged and she is on her way,’” Kirkland explained.
The disorienting chaos was too much for Kirkland to process.
“She has a medical condition that we are working on getting resolved and he says, ‘what medical condition, she has a sleep disorder, sleep apnea,’ and he says, ‘well I have sleep apnea and I don’t behave like that.”
First grader Kaia was handcuffed and carted off where Kirkland says she was fingerprinted and even had a mug shot taken.
“They told us we had to wait a few minutes because Kaia was being fingerprinted, and when she said finger printed it hit me like a ton of bricks,” Kirkland said. “No six year old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile center to be fingerprinted, mug shot”
What happened to calling the child’s parents? Or even a suspension if necessary? – This was just over the top!
