A six year old student was taken out of her school in handcuffs. Allegedly the kindergartner tore things off the wall and tossed them around, books were tossed as well along with toys potentially endangering classmates. The girl also threw a shelf at the school’s principal then jumped on a paper shredder on top of attempting to break a glass frame. The teacher called the police which resulted in the child being exited out in handcuffs.
What is your opinion? Should the school have reacted in a different way?
I’m on the fence with this one but I’m leaning more toward supporting what they did. Don’t cuss me out just yet hear what I have to say first. Kids are not how me and you were growing up. I remember being terrified of my grandma when she would give me that look, you know that look it would freeze my whole body and I would straighten up real quick.
School shootings are common now so is bullying. Teachers are threatened and put in violent situations; they are not getting paid enough to go through this. That child obviously has something going on to act out and I wasn’t there so I’m going off of my assumptions of what ‘allegedly’ went down. No one just wakes up and is immediately crazy. The teacher felt it best to call the police. He/She couldn’t get her under control so she called the po-po. The school was doing two things: 1) protecting their own asses because one wrong move or bruise and the parents could sue for being too aggressive and 2) trying to scare this girl straight.
I remember the bus my kids rode a few years ago. It was filled with children so bad (starting fights, jumping up and down, taunting, bullying, making threats, etc) that they had to have a police car follow them the whole way home to make sure nothing happened. Kids don’t play, months ago a kindergartner brought a gun to school to show his friends. How in the hell did he get to that gun so easily? I hope this situation makes that young girl think twice before she want to throw furniture, toys and books in the classroom and the parents need to take her to some anger management classes – real ish!
Peace and luv!
