10 Disgusting Examples Of Very Young School Children Being Arrested, Handcuffed And Brutalized By Police

When did we decide that it was okay to treat very young school children as if they were terror suspects?  When I was growing up, I don’t remember a single time that the police ever came to my school and arrested anyone.  But now police are being called out to public schools at the drop of a hat.  All over America, very young school children are being arrested and marched out of their schools in handcuffs in front of all their friends.  For example, down in Georgia the other day police were called out because a 6-year-old girl was throwing a tantrum.  The police subdued her, slapped handcuffs on her and hauled her off to the police station.  Instead of apologizing for this outrageous incident, the police are defending the actions of the officer involved.  But this is not an isolated incident.  All over the country young kids are being handcuffed and mistreated by police.


The following are 10 more disgusting examples of very young school children being arrested, handcuffed and brutalized by police all over America….

#1 At an elementary school in Baltimore recently, three nine-year-old girls and an eight-year-old boy were arrested for fighting and marched out of their elementary school in handcuffs.  The police department is defending handcuffing these kids….

“It’s our policy, regardless of the age, when a suspect is arrested by police, they’re handcuffed. And the reason is just not for the suspect’s safety but also for officers’ safety,” Det. Jeremy Silbert of the Baltimore City Police Department said.

#2 In New Haven, Connecticut a 10-year-old boy was actually arrested by police for giving another student “a wedgie” on a school bus.

#3 Just last year, a 5-year-old boy at a public school in Stockton, California was arrested by police and handcuffed with zip ties because he was committing “battery on a police officer“.


How much damage can a 5-year-old kid really do to a police officer?

The boy was ultimately sent to a hospital and forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

#4 A 6-year-old girl down in Florida was “throwing objects, hitting administration personnel and screaming uncontrollably” so police handcuffed the 40 pound little girl and shipped her off to a mental institution for evaluation.

#5 In San Mateo, California a few months ago a 7-year-old special education student was blasted in the face with pepper spray because he would not quit climbing on the furniture.  Police were then able to subdue the boy and he was “committed for a psychiatric evaluation”.

#6 Down in Florida, an 11-year-old student was arrested by police, thrown in jail and charged with a third-degree felony for bringing a plastic butter knife to school.

#7 In Texas, a 12-year-old girl was recently arrested by police for spraying two bursts of perfume on her neck.  She was formally charged with a misdemeanor.

#8 A 13-year-old boy at a public school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently arrested by police for burping in class.  The police marched him out of school and hauled him over to a juvenile detention center.

#9 Back in 2010, a 12-year-old girl at a school in Forest Hills, New York wrote “I love my friends Abby and Faith” on her desk.  The police were called out and she was marched out of her school in handcuffs in front of all her friends.

#10 A teenage couple down in Houston, Texas poured milk on each other during a squabble while they were breaking up a while back.  Instead of being sent to see the principal, they were arrested by police and sent to court.

In the old days, if a kid got out of line a school administrator would give that child a little paddling and that would be the end of it.

These days, police are called out for even the most minor incidents.  I would say that being arrested by police, put in handcuffs and marched down to the police station is far more traumatic that a couple of whacks with a ruler or a paddle.

But the world has changed and our entire society is becoming one big security state.

In our public schools today, even the most minor incident could end up being put on the “permanent record” of your child.

This is especially true for anything having to do with sex.  School officials have become hypersensitive when it comes to this area.  The following are just a couple of examples….

-When a very young girl recently kissed a very young boy at one Florida elementary school,  it was considered to be a “possible sex crime” and the police were called out.

-A 6-year-old boy was recently charged with sexual battery for some “inappropriate touching” during a game of tag at one elementary school in the San Francisco area.

Do you want your child to be charged with a “sex crime” if he inadvertently touches another kid the wrong way?

Do you want your child to be thrown to the floor, handcuffed and hauled off to a mental institution for burping in class or doodling on a desk?

If not, you might want to pull you child out of the government schools while you still can.

The truth is that U.S. public schools more closely resemble prison camps at this point than they do institutions of learning.

Millions of our children are “graduating” from high school dumb as a rock, but all of them are definitely being prepared to live in a Big Brother police state.

If there are weapons or drugs involved in an incident, then it is appropriate for police to be called out to a school.

But for virtually everything else, the administrators and the teachers should be able to handle it.

Yes, our children are more out of control today than ever before.  But what did we expect?  The family unit in America has been crumbling for decades and our society has become a cesspool of filth and corruption.  Of course our kids are going to behave horribly.

But there is no excuse for what police are doing in many of our public schools.

Police should not be arresting, handcuffing and brutalizing our young children for minor offenses.

What in the world is happening to this country?

  • Spook89

    It’s happening because kids do not respect authority. Parents are responsible for instilling that in their children, not the schools. They either don’t care enough about their kids to “Bring them up in the way that they should go”, or the family unit is broken, or our government will not allow parents to discipline their kids. I believe it all started when the government took prayer out of the schools.

    • Rhynn

      Kids don’t respect authority because the state and school district have co-opted the job of parenting.

      Part of that effort has been to redefine what nearly everything a kid does means, especially where they can tack on some mind police style BS.

      These ridiculous examples have nothing to do with kids not respecting authority. They have to do with grown cowards who don’t respect kids, or the parents who have been castrated by authorities while trying to raise them.

    • A.C. Luthus

      ABSOLUTELY TRUE!! ^^THANK YOU^^ (original comment)
      `pull prayer out of schools
      tell them they’re descended from monkeys
      they’re ‘lucky’ to be alive (not having been aborted)
      everything’s ‘relative’ to how someone else feels..
      parents and authority figures crippled to do anything
      >and yet bullying is at an all-time high..
      -this is what we get-

    • How wrong you are, how right Ayn Rand and Leonard Peikoff remain! Mindless authoritarianism has never defined one single legitimate thing about America. Mindless authoritarianism is the antithesis of America. Religious authority is among the very worst, and the very most mindless. Grow up. Read a book. Build something. Stop defending mindless conformity for its own sake. That simply leads to the gas chamber, or worse.

      There should be a complete and total separation of school and state, and there should be no police. The police are unconstitutional, and constitute a “standing army.” Sooner or later, the posse comitatus will be reborn, and justice will be imposed on mindless authoritarians like yourself.

      Pray you’ve only defended the evil, and not committed the evil.

  • Benjik

    THANK YOU Michael for covering these atrocities. How will these kids ever be able to live a normal, fear-free life after these traumatic incidents? Also, as if it wasn’t bad enough for the child involved, what kind of message is this sending to the rest of the school population? How much trauma and fear is this instilling into each of these child’s classmates? What are the residual effects on parents and the community as a whole? And BO and company want to hire MORE of these “educators” and “law enforcement” officers?! How about we slow our roll and fix the severely fractured system we have. These are PREPUBESCENT CHILDREN!!!! What in the world are these animals doing to our KIDS? Admittedly some of the abusive actions committed by these kids are severe in some cases, but for the love of God, treating them like dangerous felons is NOT the answer. The psychological and emotional damage to these children is irreversible.

    PLEASE pray for these children and their families. If you’re not the praying type please bring attention to this real-life horror show, this BS absolutely HAS to stop.

    Again, THANK YOU Mr. M for staying on top of this issue and to our fellow readers, please, PLEASE print, email, tweet, FB or share this article in any way! This is child-abuse in one of it’s most grotesque forms.

    • Michael

        Thank you Mr. M, I appreciate the sentiment and am very thankful for the platform you provide. It appears traffic is increasing on this site as well as the EcoCollapseBlog. Good for you!

        I have noticed along with increased traffic comes increased scrutiny and a higher number of negative posts. Please don’t be discouraged brother, proudly wear ALL the negativity like a big, shiny badge! It means you ARE making a difference and your tentacles of truth are branching out! We applaud you for giving everyone a voice, regardless of personal opinion. That my man is THE definition of LIBERTY.

        May God continue to bless you, your family and the fire of truth and justice that continues to burn inside you.

        • Michael

          Thank you :) May you and your family be greatly blessed as well.

  • Cinderella Man

    I swear the police in this country are turing into the biggest bunch of cowards Ive ever seen!! Really? you feel threatened by a 6 year old? Really? you feel the need to tackle a 100 lb lil woman and smash her teeth out? Really? you feel you need to tase a disabled kid? Really? you feel you need to pepper spray unarmed protestors sitting peacefully? Man I could go on and on. These cops today are too afraid to go after real criminals such as thevies, rapists, and murderers but little old ladies, kids and pot smokers are fair game. Thats how bullies work only prey on the weak never someone who might hand them their ass! This has got to stop. Why wont these lazy teachers do their jobs and not have to outsource everything to the police? Why wont the parents of these kids give them a spanking when they act up. Spanking worked for me, I never got into any legal trouble until I turned 18. I can think back to when I was in 3rd grade I was acting up and the principal actually bribed me to be good! He said if he didnt see me in his office for a month he would buy me some GI Joes! LOL that would NEVER happen these days!

    • WM

      Problem is….the teacher yells at or raises a hand to a kid today, that kid can tell the parents, the parents can tell the authorities….teacher arrested and/or charges of abuse brought against him/her.
      If parents spank a kid today, it can be construed as abuse and parents reported, arrested, charged, etc.

      I agree with you. A good spanking by parents never hurt anyone. I also agree the police are becoming more and more cowardice each day. Its funny to see the program COPS, watching 4-5 cops tackle a 145 lb drunk man, macing, tazing, roughing up, etc. You wonder what they would do if it was one on one in a dark alley??

      Actually this did not happen in the USSR. Children were children. I recall visiting Moscow as an East-German exchange student back in the early 80s

  • Drone

    Maybe a question needs to be asked;
    What is happening to these children?
    Why so many incidents of tantrums and mis-behavioral problems the teachers have to put up with, as at the same time they are not allowed to discipline them?
    Has anyone got better options to deal with these children?

    Perhaps they need to be thought respect and discipline at home first?

  • mondobeyondo

    Our government has officially gone psycho. A young boy and girl accused of “a possible sex crime” for kissing each other?! Wow.

    This country has survived for over 235 years now, but things have never seemed as bad as they are today. Reminds me a lot of Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music”.

    “Sit down! Now, sit up! When I toot my whistle 2 times, that means lunch. Three times, you’re dismissed! No hugging, kissing or holding hands! That makes you a sex criminal. There shall be no playtime until homework is completed. After homework is completed, there shall be no playtime…”

    How are students supposed to succeed in such a (gasp!) happy learning environment? No wonder so many students are failing. It’s because the public school system is failing.

    • Michael

      Yes, our public school system is a complete and total mess.

      Unfortunately there is not much hope that it will be turned around any time soon.


      • MisterC

        The school system was designed to be a ‘failure’. It is the prussian model which is used basically to produce drones. Unfortunately it is working too well. :-(

  • mondobeyondo

    Are we indoctrinating our young children into a modern day version of “Hitler Youth”?

  • whoisbiggles

    This is all reflects how unskilled US teachers are to teach.
    A teacher doesn’t need to be able to cane a student to get compliance – that just shows a lack of imagination on the teachers part.
    In my experience a lolly is very effective as a circuit breaker for a child throwing a tantrum whether they are child with a disability or not.
    Are US teachers not allowed to confiscate comics, perfume bottles, etc anymore?
    The best teachers I had were the ones who laid down the law on what was and wasn’t acceptable behaviour at the start of year and enforced those standards consistently. The teachers that threatened to send us off to the headmaster were regarded as a bit of a joke and a soft touch.
    I can’t comment on US teachers, but in Queensland 1/3rd of our 4 year degrees are spent in classrooms with senior teachers supervising while we try to teach kids, this certainly weeds out those people not suitable for the profession.

  • Imaplaneiac

    Since the Supremes recently declared it’s ” legal “,I wonder how many of these children were strip-searched after arrested by the cops?!

    • mondobeyondo

      I’m sure Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson and Diana Ross had nothing to do with that legislation. :)

  • C Hinds

    Corporal punishment was used when I was a child to correct the children that were not taught respect at home. To those folks who say that corporal punishment is not a deterent I say, you’ve never had your rear end lit up by an oak paddle.

    • Michael

      Your comment made me smile. :)


    • Benjik

      Right on C! As a young child, I fondly remember “The Board of Education” hanging on my grandparents kitchen wall. (The phrase “Board of Education” was painted on the “paddle” in BIG red letters!)

      I only recall it ever being used on my backside ONCE, and looking back I am absolutely sure I deserved it! :) Grandma still has it to this day, and at 34 years old, 6’3″ and 220 lbs, it STILL scares the h*ll out of me!!!

  • BeenThere

    I suspect what is largely behind this is that no one (and here in New Zealand that includes parents) is allowed to touch a child for any reason except a policeman. So when kids play up what else can teacthers do other than call the police?

    Yes the dems also suck but suck way less. They are at least rational for the most part. There is a progressive caucus budget that is getting little attention yet it balances the budget which the GOP golden boy paul ryan does not do. There are no insane Paul Ryans in the dems. There is no one who worships an atheist ayn rand. The dems did not sign a tax pledge with grover.

    As indicated by my earlier post, the subject matter of this article is absolutely horrifying. That being said, sometimes it’s a little refreshing to give a tip of the hat to a more positive and uplifting news snippet:

    “Atheist Activist Who Threatened to Sue to Stop Texas Nativity Has Become a Christian”


    My apologies for “jacking” this thread, I usually try to stay on topic, but the sheer generosity and unselfishness shown to Patrick Greene by his so-called “enemies” showcases a renewed faith in human-spirit. We can all benefit from more acts of kindness like this, irregardless what side of “God’s Door” you may be on……and maybe, just maybe, there will be a few less kindergartners on our court dockets.

      is your religion so weak that you have to have religious displays on public property?

      • Benjik

        Wow, that’s a pretty presumptuous statement considering you know absolutely nothing about me.

        I personally don’t “have” to have anything, believe it or not there is still a portion of the human population that is thankful for everything right down to the air that we breathe.

        As to trying to totally deflect the message of my post I would say “nice try”, but it really wasn’t.

        Now that we’re done with the pleasantries, in reference to your handle, it implies you have served our country in uniform, and for that, I thank you.

          people believe in religion for two reasons:

          (1) fear of death
          (2) social control (obey what we say is in the Bible or go to hell!)

  • Winston Hackett

    A lot of people here are advocating parents whacking their kids for misbehaving. As a point of interest, it is illegal in many countries (in Europe Latin America and Africa – en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporal_punishment_in_the_home#Where_corporal_punishment_in_the_home_is_outlawed) to whack your kids. In NY where I live, it’s illegal to whack them with anything other than an open hand or you can be charged with assault.

    I personally don’t believe in hitting children who misbehave any more than hitting your next door neighbor who misbehaves. Parenting is a really difficult job (I am a middle-age widower with a 7-year old) and hitting your kid is by far the easiest method of discipline, much easier than working with them and trying to teach them what they do is wrong.

    I miss many of the ways we had when I was a kid but getting whacked is not one of them. That said, our educators need to be given more flexibility in dealing with out-of-control children. Currently, they are afraid for their jobs so they call police who follow laws instead of reason. Another symptom of a sick society.

  • WM

    Children today are in these environments we call learning institutions where they are not only brainwashed about homosexuality and alternative lifestyles, brainwashed into thinking that there is no creator God and that we all just evolved out of the slime via natural selection, they are brainwashed into thinking that science has proven the Bible wrong, creation is a myth, there are no moral absoulutes, they are brainwashed in learning a “revised history” of this nation, never to hear the quotes of our founders regarding the place of faith in the God of the Bible as a foundation for this nation, nor will they ever hear that the Pilgrims consecrated this nation in prayer to the Lord Jesus Christ, they have to worry about some kid that is over medicated, lost his self esteem and decides to go on a shooting spree, they learn about sex at a VERY early age, even learn how to use condoms before puberty!!!!!!

    yeah, I’ll say the system is EVIL. Parents: Do WHATEVER it takes to remove your children from public school and start seriously considering homeschooling. Whats that you say? You don’t want to give up the big house, the boat, the dual gas guzzling SUV’s in the driveway, etc? If you really care about your children and their spiritual and mental future, then you will do whatever it takes to sacrifice to protect your children in any way needed. I know MANY families that homeschool and they are all blessed more than you can imagine. The kids are more stable, much smarter, possess much more solid moral ethics, and have a far better realationship with parents.

    It will be a sacrifice indeed, but you are the ones who decided to bring children into the world. Please, for you childrens sake and I should say the future of our scoiety, please take you kids out of the evil education system and home school now, and raise them in the precepts and commandments of the Lord of the Bible, before it is too late.

    Doesn’t the US have an age of criminal responsibility? How can a child of 6 be charged with “sexual battery”? Appalling though these examples, as children are the victims, it seems to be part of a more general lack of commonsense. I have read of adults being arrested and jailed for not paying a library fine or a parking fine! In the UK, if you didn’t pay a library fine, the library would revoke your borrowing rights. And that’s it. Parking offences are civil offences; the worst that can happen is you are sued for the fines you owe. No wonder the US has enormous prison population if it jails people for such unbelievably trivial things.

      DDN, actually it’s corporatist-fascist police state protocol rather than socialist/communist, but you are correct that it is a form or conditioning that will not go well.

  • Chris

    Extraordinary article. I don’t understand this – who exactly is calling out the police for these ‘crimes’ rather than the child being sent to see the principal? Surely the principal would rather deal with some of these events than get the police called out? Is the teacher involved just automatically calling out the police (as per directions from the principal?) or is it even the principal? Do US schools still have principals?
    It’s saying that even as a 6 year old kid the system will treat you as an adult criminal if you fail to toe the line and you will get psychiatric evaluation (reeducation?) to show you the error of your ways and how the system wants you to behave. Failure to show authority adequate respect will be diagnosed as a mental illness it seems (along with interests in conspiracy theories and not believing the MSM) and will result in drug administration. Should be profitable for big Pharma.

  • puzzled

    Lock em all up! Disgusting offspring of ignorant “parents” They not only make me sick, but the police must be disgusted. Mass sterilization clinics are needed for men and women who do not ‘qualify’ to be parents. Bring on the application process! I currently sit at the college library watching the idiots in progress of an education. These worthless eaters talk on cell phones, yell, disrupt everyone and guess what? Nobody says crap. Library personell are “scared to say anything”. Do you have to wonder why companies move out of the BRA? Are you friggin kiddin me? Taxes? Yeah right! Do you have to wonder why most big U.S. corporations have foreign CEO’S? Or Wall Street laughs in the faces of Americans? You got what you deserve America. You let your own selfish ways ruin your children. Now there isn’t a prayer in hell to save them….

  • Corinna

    It is really sad because they omitted Lord’s prayers at the schools. and the parents are not allowed to discpline their children, remember in the bible. Mark 13:12-13, Brother will betray brother to death and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. All men will hate you because of Me but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

    also where is God’s love for them? They need Jesus’ love for them. many many people dont care about anyone but care about themselves. many many grow love cold and being so selfish. many many people needs Jesus. That s why Jesus came here to die for us and forgive our sins. that s how much God loves us so deeply. The children like 5 or 6 years old they are just being a child and they need love. We are supposed to help them to know Jesus and We are supposed to love them and deal with them. not call cops to arrest the kids for their behavior etc. I do believe that the children needs love and nuturing from the parents including from teachers or anyone else. it is really sadden my heart because of this small silly things. I do care about them so much. They needs the love from Jesus.

  • rpdiplock

    ’tis unfair to blame the children, for imitating the rotten apples at the apex of American society.

  • George

    I have to wonder whether some of these out-of-control kids are demon-possessed, or doped up. Or maybe they missed a dose of something. I mean, obviously the kid arrested for giving a wedgie probably wasn’t either of those things, and most of these other incidents were likely just cases of adults passing-the-buck to avoid liability, but why would a big, tough cop feel the need to restrain a kid with handcuffs or zip ties? If it’s just an ordinary kid throwing an ordinary tantrum, giving the kid some space and calling the parent is probably the course to follow. But what if it’s not an ordinary tantrum? What if the kid is a danger to him/herself as well as others?

  • Maxx

    First, they throw out the 10 Commandments and then God out of the system. Now they call the police when the kids take it seriously. This is not going to get any better until someone stands up and this ends up in the Supreme Court.
    It is also interesting to note that law enforcement communities across the country are aggressively recruiting returning Marines and such to fill their ranks. Many of these returning vets suffer, or will suffer from PTSD. According to a recent article, as many as 18 returned vets are committing suicide on a almost daily basis.
    When a society embraces moral relativism, it can only result in the totality of a police state. The totality of a police state will bring the brutality of a police state. Many of these vets recruited into law enforcement come from a military background demanding absolute and immediate compliance and strict obedience. No doubt these folks will expect and demand the same from those they are confronting.
    The problem is that you’re average Joe Citizen does not think on this level. There are going to be problems.

    Good evening.

  • Melody

    Somewhere along the line, someone forgot these were children, its like the world has gone crazy, if my kids got out of line, they got a spanking, now they throw you in jail for that.. so what do they except us to do..talk them to death..sorry that does not work. Sure glad my are grown, I would say home school your children, its too dangerous in the schools anymore.

  • bjo

    The number of people on here who claim that they see nothing wrong with children being handcuffed, arrested, and taken to jail for not following rules is astounding. I guess a lot of Americans really won’t mind when the growing U.S. police state finally reaches its full potential. Very disheartening, but if that’s what the majority want, then have at it… I’m just glad that I’m not young and that I don’t have children. Life is only going to get more miserable and the real tragedy is that many, many of us are, just like the Germans in the 1930s, marching happily along to the piper’s tune. Long live totalitarianism, right? (I suppose those of you who think the police should be used to teach non-conforming children a lesson also think that drugging kids up to the eyeballs with psychopharmaceuticals so that they can be controlled more effectively is a grand idea. This country has gone off its rocker.)

  • Dingo Dan

    So they took God out of the schools and thats WHY there are these problems in USSA education? Explain then why Finland can spend 30% LESS than America per child on education and yet 93% of students graduate from High School (17.5% more than in the US)and in the PISA test (one of the very few tests a Finnish student will undertake) Finland rates in #3…the USSA wallows at#17 and in Mathematics and Science is below the OECD average! The REAL problem is that the USSA and its cohorts continue to insist on a comeptitive and commercial reward educational praxis…like the economy its going to fail. Countries like Finland have a different attitude….”We teach Children to learn, not to pass exams”.

    get in trouble for administering a corrective swat. The state enjoys many privileges, doesn’t it? As our rights dwindle, their rights continue to expand. May the Lord have mercy on
    us for what we allow to happen to our children. I made the personal choice to homeschool
    5 years ago, and I know it’s an incredible privilege not everyone can afford, but for all those who
    can somehow swing it- PULL YOUR KIDS OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!And may God bless all the little children out there!

  • So glad I don´t live in the madhouse called USA.

    How are those mercenaries called police working out for you?

    a species that hires bodyguards to protect them looses the ability to protect itself and is doomed to extinction

    for the uneducated and the uneducable

    high school dropout can’t find work so he joins the Marines to Semper Fi
    and collect some money.
    High school dropout is sent to Paris Island to be all he can be. He is trained to kill women and children and a occasional freedom fighter trying to protect his wife from being raped by Mr Semper Fi.
    High school dropout ships out to invade Iraq for USEmpire and US oil companies.
    American oil companies are struggling with the problem of Peak Oil.
    Peak oil means we no longer have a infinite supply of oil.Maybe you saw the documentary film END OF SUBURBIA see

    high school drop out didn’t because his high school teachers were too busy DUMBING him down

    High School dropout manages to kill a couple hundred women and children while throwing in a occasional rape. Mr Sempi Fi has now been transformed into Mr serial killer.
    Mr high school dropout/serial killer now begins to experience extreme depression from his actions. Mental Wealth workers call it Post Traumatic
    Stress Syndrome. But the only people who experience traumatic stress in Iraq are the Iraqi women being raped by Semper Fi’s before they shot and killed them.
    Good thing serial killer/high school dropout has never read the research
    of Ian Stevenson MD whose groundbreaking study of 3,000 children who remember previous lives provides the science for the existence of reincarnation. see

    What this means for high school dropout is that he will be coming back
    again for another life . Of course so will the people he murdered , so for practical purposes he has another couple hundred lives he has to live getting “wacked” by the life forms he semper fi’d.

    The difference this time is the raped and murdered have had some time to ponder while they wait for him to pass over, how they will “do” Mr Semper Fi- the high school drop out serial killer.

    Mr high school dropout comes back from Iraq out of work unless he re-enlists. There are not to many job openings for serial killers until he lands a job working with his be all you can be buddies at the local police department or the FBI.

  • It is my opinion that the teacher can call on other teachers to help the situation. I went to an all boys school, and that’s what some of the teachers did in the rare instances when there was a disturbance.

    My question is to the parents, and the community at large. What will it take before you take your government back?

    Communities need to band together and take positive action. What would city hall do if a few hundred fathers, mom please stay home, went down and told the mayor and town council that they crossed the line? We want the teacher, the principle, and the police officers arrested and tried. Probably won’t work because the system is so corrupt that justice is almost impossible today.

    Decades ago, you could have gone right to the grand jury composed of fellow citizens, but the Supreme Court took away that right. That body would investigate the matter and take proper action. They also gave police, politicians, judges and others immunity that is nowhere defined in any constitution of this land.

    Where does this leave us? If we don’t show up enmass those who sit in seats of power will always ignore our grievances, which brings me to the fact that the courts also ruled that no matter what facts the government does not have to answer your redress of grievance.

    Our entire system was based on the fact that the people were the ultimate enforcers of the law. That is why the mandate for a Militia is in the Constitution, and why the 2nd Amendment confirms the authority to maintain a free state to the duly organized law enforcement of the people.

  • The problem is this insane notion that all kids are entitled to a free public education. Instead of calling the police, why not call the parent and hand them over and tell them not to come back with their kid until he/she has mastered some self-control. And then allow the parent to discipline the child properly without the police coming out again and handing the kid over to Social Services. They’ve handcuffed parents, and then wonder why the kids are out of control.

  • VyseLegendaire

    You can be absolutely sure that the kids mentioned have all been at least recommended prescriptions of anti-whatever psycho-pharmaceutical drugs. They’re in for a life long battle with the justice system where their well being is the furthest thing from the system’s tools’ minds. Keep your kids out of the government schools, do NOT give them any pills or drugs that have been known to cause homicidal outbursts…

  • JOHN

    The schools do not want children to learn or obey the 10 Commandments. Yet, they want to cry because of the way children act. The schools and their Unions are the ones to blame. If you want only “evil” in your idea of a utopian society; do not complain when it reveals itself to you. If you do not train a child to behave, a monster it will become. No cop is ever, ever needed to ” subdue ” a child. Sounds like the gay school staff is afraid to snag a fingernail!!! Bunch of cowards. The parents need to resort to pepper-spraying the administrators in retaliation. An assault on their child by the police, is no different than walking in on your spouse cheating; or your child being molested. Put the fear into these punks and they will back off. Maybe they should consider new jobs. Like politics. They would still get paid to do absolutely no good for our children. Oh, you would get more than those paltry 90 days off with pay as well.

    The facts are that a teacher can not use any kind of physical contact to control a child without fear of being sued by a parent. The teacher may ask the child to cease the disruption however if said child refuses then the teacher reports the problem to the principal who gives the child the option of ceasing the disruption on his own. If said child does not cease then the School Resource Officer (deputy sheriff which I think every school has) is called in. The SRO offers the child the opportunity to cease the disruption on his/her own. If the child still refuses to cease the disruption then and only then (after 3 opportunities to cease) will the child be placed in handcuffs and escorted from the classroom/school setting where he/she is causing the disruption. I am usually on board with practically everything that Michael posts on his blogs, however in this instance not so much. Yes I am sure that these ten instances may have happened the way that has been stated, then again they may have not. I have seen far too many times how the media distorts things for sensationalism’s sake. Being a school teacher myself I see situations each and every day that could easily escalate into a police intervention situation and yet are kept from it by caring qualified teachers. If one multiplies my data times the thousands and thousands of school systems nation wide, It would appear that having only ten to point out should be a reason for joy.

    • n. daniels

      No I am not pro- public school. The system we have now can not and will not work. But it is not because of the teachers, (at least the ones that I know). It is because of the removal of God from our Schools, our nation and most of all from our families. Godless people coming together for Godless purposes will always result in disaster and misery.

      It’s nice to know that there is a proper “procedure”, so as long as “procedure” is followed it makes treating children like this ok in your eyes You are a doomed fool.

  • Fred

    That six year old could be a black belt and hurt that policeman. Then he turns around and claims he can’t work anymore. He applies for a disability pension and lives happily ever after on a big fat pension with COLA medical benifits at taxpayer’s expense. I can see what the future will be like for a six months old who crys during the night. The neighbor calls the police and the six month old is handcuffed and sent to jail.

  • mondobeyondo

    It is the parents’ job to raise their children.
    Not teachers. Teachers are employed to teach children, not raise them.
    Not law enforcement. Law enforcement is the ultimate in discipline.
    And why? Because YOU – Mom and Dad – didn’t do your [bleeping] job!!

    Why are our court systems filled with delinquent youth?
    Why are our students so disobedient?
    Why do I run into wild unsupervised kids every time I go to the grocery store? Why do I have to do hurdles over a 5 year old girl staring at the Barbie doll display?
    Where were Mom and Dad??
    So glad (sometimes but by no means always!) I don’t have kids!!
    Think about it…

  • 1. yes these are atrocities resulting from an ever-increasing police state. these cops are cowards, they are arrogant, ‘untouchables’ they show no respect to the people, but demand total respect and instance compliance with any unlawful request.

    2. state education of your children has degenerated into an abomination. it is about ‘training, socializing, dumbing down’ I can guarantee you that anything you really need to know to make it in life, you DID NOT learn in a public school classroom.

    3. this is not an accident, this is by design. parents turn their children over to the state because they are have no sense of priority. instead of parenting, they are pursuing the comforts that only a two income family can provide in our day and age.

  • Michael Payne

    Prayer in School will not solve the problem.

    Dr. AA Hodge understood the ramifications of government Schools: I am as sure as I am of the fact of Christ’s reign that a comprehensive and centralized system of national education separated from religion, as is now commonly proposed,will prove the most appalling enginery for the propagation of anti-Christian and atheistic unbelief, and of anti-social, nihilistic ethics, individual, social, and political, which this sin-rent world has ever seen.

    We have no right to Caesar those that bear the image of God. We need to exodus the Canaanite’s humanistic religious schools and walk along side our own children.

  • walt

    I’ve compiled a list the Government does well and correctly.

    6. Ignores the constitution.
    7. Feeds it’s own agenda’s.

    Well, that didn’t take long.

  • Dan

    The reason the police in many cases need to be called is that society and parents in particular have removed nearly all of the tools traditionally used to discipline young students. Schools can’t use corporal punishment. School administrators get their knuckles rapped for suspending too much, especially minorities (suspensions aren’t dictated by the misbehavior, they are are now a statistic that needs to be ‘managed’). Parents can’t/don’t control their own children and they don’t want teachers to do so either. Heck, we aren’t even supposed to raise our voices anymore for fear of damaging someone’s self-esteem, so what is left? If you took away a carpenter’s hammer, saw, and drill, would you expect him to be able to build a mansion singlehandedly? That is akin to what you are expecting from public schools. The kids and parents don’t care, as long as the government checks keep coming.

  • After reading most of these comments, I am so glad I never got married or had children.

    It wasn’t by choice though. I was just lucky that the girls I asked to marry me listened to their mothers instead or were unfaithful to me.

    Then, for the rest of my life, I just could never afford to be married or could never find anyone that wanted to do what it took to be in an honest relationship with me.

    I would hate it, now that I am almost 68 and very disabled, to be married to someone who didn’t love me and have children that didn’t respect me.

    I lived through the tail-end of ‘the good old days’ and it wasn’t all that great either, but we had a fairly good economy in the fifties when I started my early years of schooling, but things started to fall apart with the assassination of Kennedy and the Vietnam War when it was obvious that our government was filled with liars and self aggrandizing thieves. And it’s only gotten worse until we are where we are now…a vicious society of selfish, arrogant stupid, unworldly people with outlandishly over sized EGOs who think we are the chosen people who have the god given right to lord it over all other peoples and nations.

    Most of the people in my age bracket are the parents of the children who had this current crop of kids who are disrespectful and out of control.

    Our government has created such a horrible system through inflation of our medium of exchange (money) that parents are now working so long (if they are fortunate to even have some type of income source) that they don’t have the time to have a family life. That and TV and modern music like RAP has influenced the kids to disrespect anyone with any life experience (meaning their elders) who could teach them history and explain the past mistakes prior generations have made.

    But the fact that history does repeat itself seems to be true even though we now have almost all human knowledge at our fingertips with the internet and should now be able to quickly ‘educate’ ourselves and our young to be effective participants in the world.

    The ultimate truth of the matter is that the psychopaths that have gained control of the halls of power throughout the world have a plan that has been in the works for decades if not centuries to rule the world, and part of that plan is to ELIMINATE BILLIONS OF US due to overcrowding and resource allocation of limited resources.

    We are all now considered just sheep to be funneled down a chute either to be used as slave labor, or exterminated in the near future.

    Economic collapse has been engineered and is now impossible to avoid which will cause worldwide violence as starving hoards, including the rich eventually, battle one another for the remaining scraps of food and materials.

    This planet will survive, even a nuclear holocaust, as will many plants and animals, but human kind may not, and probably should not as it has become a plague on all other life forms since it came into being, and I don’t believe the Adam and Eve story is how it happened.

    Whatever the Big Plan is that whatever force or power created for all of us, and this thing called life that we are experiencing, we here now may never know unless there is a hereafter. And NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE if there is one.

    You’ll just have to find out.

    Until then, why is it we can’t treat one another with courtesy and respect for one another’s individual dignity as human beings and having value that can be shared by all?

    And why is it that we SHEOPLE can’t join together and take down these CRIMINAL SOCIOPATHS that have gained control of the system (temporarily I might add, as they will suffer the collapse with the rest of us eventually.)

    We’re all going to die eventually, so what are you all afraid of?

    You love to call people heroes for doing some of the simplest acts of courage for simply doing the right thing that you would think a human being would be inclined to do in an emergency.

    Why not be a hero and stand up for right, freedom and liberty as was intended by the men and women who founded this country?

    Voting for Ron Paul may be our last chance to slow this disaster down. And even he may not be able to do it given our governments proclivity to kill those who try to stop the greedy criminals who are now milking us all for every last cent and asset we have and herding us all to our deaths.

  • If any of you are interested, I have been running a blog now for the last several years called



    I post a variety of articles that will keep you current on what is happening to our society and economy as we head into economic collapse.

    Please pass it around to those you care about.

  • Janine

    I thought police are to be called if crimes are committed. Wow America! How disgusting-what double standards. THe same country that took discipline and corporal punishment away from parents and teachers now wants to arrest kids for being undisciplined. HOw awful…getting arrested for burping and child like behaviour. Wow! Police state indeed! Sadly so many countries look up to America and Im afraid that this kind of horror will soon come to our doorstep.

  • German Guy

    I grew up in former East Germany and even we didn’t have this type of thing. Perhaps America is not falling fast enough for its inhabitants to see what their country has become.

  • Ben Jonsson

    When parents do not show their kids love and affection in every interaction it is very hard for kids to grow. When parents have so many problems themselves, cause many have a bad economy there is precious little time and energy over for their kids. Then it grows worse, cause society(other grownups)tell the kids they are bad and send the police. What is the message? Is it love that they need or punishment. To beat someone physically or emotionally will not make them more loving it scars them further. This is so sad it is hard to contain.

    Homeschool sounds like a good idea, but this is only a solution when there is enough money in the family. It is a rich mans solution as are privateschools. If you have to rely on a schoolsystem with no money is the reality most face. When education is as bad as it is in america the society as a whole will suffer.

    A society falling down is sad, very sad. An abusive system who abuses its citizens instead of helping the ones in need. Very few rich people and so many people below the poverty line http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poverty_in_the_United_States. A society that think it is a good idea to have poor people have big problems. Is it necessary to have a system like this? What will an very unequal society produce? Happy and loving people that has no security, no medical care, working poor. I am so so sad for americans living in such a harsh society with no social security. It is bad enough to live in Sweden today, and we have an history of social welfare. I just cannot fanthom to live in the US today. My heart goes out to people in need.

  • James Ryder

    Good, children should be disciplined harshly. No mercy.

  • r rawlings

    My mentally impaired son was handcuffed several times at school because he displayed agressive verbal behavior due to a severe anxiety disorder. this was in a classroom for special ed students. why was his anxiety so intense? hmm I do not know but he never had a problem again after I changed schools and he had a different teacher.

  • This guy

    Guessing no one here is in school. I am in the 10th grade. I only find problems with 7,8,9. Even plastic butter knifes can be used as weapons just go for the eyes. And kids are disrespectful in only know few that are. Better to teach them like this then behave horribly when they are older. And attacking cops even if they have a mental problem should be taken lighter. They can’t control themselves so no need for full force.

  • This guy

    I have some spelling errors…

  • Anon

    Tis article contradicts the other article “what in the world is wrong with American kids?” Here you portray them as innocent, but there you call them delinquents. You people are like Holden Claufeild!

    • JoAnne Chisholm

      The article does not say they are innocent, they’re saying the punishment doesn’t fit the “crime” the schools should handle all disciplinary issues, unless weapons or threats are involved!

  • Terri Lynn Sullivan

    As someone who volunteers weekly in my son’s elementary school, I can tell you firsthand it is NOT true our kids are “more out of control than ever”. Just the opposite, they are truly amazingly well behaved and highly academic. Our NATION is out of control. I am not saying this as biased parent, my son is nearly 11, one of top 3 students in a classroom of 33 amazingly BRIGHT kids, gets straight “Excellence” in behavior/respect for peers and teachers. At first I thought this article was not possibly true….but just this past Friday one of my son’s best friends asked his Dad (who was in the classroom volunteering with me) if he could have an after school playdate with my son. I said yes, and his Dad gave him permission right then and there to walk home with my son. One minor detail, his Dad was rushing off to work conference and forgot to tell his daycare he would not be there (seriously, he is 11, so miscommunication aside, that does NOT justify what happened next). I was in my home office while the boys were laughing and playing in my living room. Next thing you know, cops are pounding on my front door YELLING at the kid to “come out we know your in there” like freaking Starsky and Hutch, treating the innocent kid like a criminal. One cop literally came around the side of my house through a locked gate he had to reach around to open, to my home office window and pounded LOUDLY yelling the kid’s name to “come out”. There is no doubt in my mind had I not been there to reprimand these cops with big badges and tiny balls, they would have handcuffed this innocent kid and carried him off for “walking home from school with no permission”. He DID have permission, not to mention even had he not…there is NO justification to treating children with such emotional abuse. USA is a police state.

  • Stephanie

    Maybe there should be better parents that teach their children how to behave in public. If I or any of my sisters did half of what was reported above, we would have been grounded for life. From the stories that were reported, these kids are brats who need to learn that there are consequences to their actions.
