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.

For one it's Yahoo News,seems they are out to create a race war with their daily line called "news".If i acted that way my father would have made me wish i was in handcuffs & also smacked the cop who tried to put his child in them over an issue at school..Training our kids to be worthless disrespectful turds at the same time we put America in Cuffs,so sad...

 If I would have acted up in school and became a problem for my teachers or principal, I would have been filleted like a trout when I got home, like most kids. Police tazed a few kids across the country. That is retarded.

Great, just great, It is not only bad that police are even called, but that they handcuff her and CHARGE her? Are you f*&$@ng kidding me? What was the old Nazi saying "Arbeit macht frei", can't attest to the spelling, translation, work makes free, so does death, as in the death of the republic. I cringe when I read things like this, we are talking about a kindergartener, not a gang banger, if the school officials can't handle that, then they need to find other work.

Shes a cute kid and maybe someone with the right words could have calmed her down but I don't know.

I don't see what the problem is here. She was out of control and was put in restraints. I believe this action was just what this child needed for her actions. Possibly she has behavioral issues that need to be addressed. Much ado about nothing. In my day the Nuns would have whipped her little ass and she would not do that again.
