MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia handcuffed a kindergartner after the girl threw a tantrum and the police chief defended the action.

The girl's family demanded Tuesday that this central Georgia city change policy so that other children aren't treated the same way. They say the child was shaken up by being put in a cell at the police station.

 

Salecia Johnson, 6, was accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing furniture in an outburst Friday at Creekside Elementary School, Macon television station WMAZ-TV (http://on.wmaz.com/HPb7nr ) reported. Police said the girl knocked over a shelf that injured the principal.

 

The school called police. The police report says when an officer tried to calm the child in the principal's office, she resisted and was handcuffed. The girl was charged with simple assault and damage to property.

Police Chief Dray Swicord says the department's policy is to handcuff people in certain situations.

 Efficient performance requires sufficient rest and nutrition. And a sense of freedom. And an aversion to negative reinforcement. Tazing of other young children and handcuffs are retarded for young children. Fire the teacher, the principal, and the cop. This day should become a national holiday for introspection. Call it 'Lame Day'.

Sharon its true. As for our little darling I'll bet their not telling us everything. As per suzanne stapler's comment that may be the real truth. I have read that when certain vitamins are lacking in childrens foods they will act retarded because their not getting vitamins through all the junk foods they are consuming.

Sharon you are so right, children are no longer allowed to be just kids, now they have to sexually aware in grade school, taught to fear ALL adults as possible molesters, and turned into little snitches by social workers telling them that getting hit by your parents is a crime, if that is true, we grew up in a crime infested country I can tell you!!LOL!

Normal childhood mistakes are now considered a crime.   Children are allowed no mistakes.  My heart cry's for all the children who have never and will never know any sense of freedom.

This is news? It is in my opinion a created problem ..  back in the day if a kid acted like that we didn't sit around and try to figure out if they had ADHD or coddle and coo them .. your mother was called and you were removed from school! When you got home...  You probably got a beating of some kind and sent to bed without supper ... It was a cold cruel world but ya know what? People behaved better and kids ate what they were given by there parents or went hungry.. A cop handcuffing a 6yr old kid? absurd indeed.. shouldn't have happened and wouldn't have happened when the world made so kind of sense..

She could very well have nutritional and digestion issues like ADHD (which is not a brain disorder even though the medical doctors and Big Pharma only want to give them drugs for it).  Simply getting rid of dairy and gluten from her diet as well as the fake fats, GMOs and refined and pkgd, processed foods could be enough to calm her down.
