Police Handcuffed Kindergartener for Throwing a Tantrum

a 6-year-old girl in kindergarten got rowdy, the school principal called
the cops, who came and handcuffed the child:

According to the police report, kindergartner Salecia Johnson is
accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing furniture.

She was crying in the principal’s office at Creekside Elementary
before police arrived Friday. The report says the girl knocked over
a shelf that injured the principal. It also says she was seen biting
the door knob of the office and jumping on the paper shredder. And,
it says, she attempted to break a glass frame above the shredder.

The report says when the officer tried to calm the child, she resisted
and was cuffed.

"Our policy is that any detainee transported to our station
in a patrol vehicle is to be handcuffed in the back. There is no age
discrimination on that rule," said Milledgeville Chief of Police
Dray Swicord.

They took the child to the police station where she was charged
with simple assault and damage to property. Because of her age, she
will not be prosecuted.
