The attorney for a family suing Chicago Public Schools over the alleged handcuffing of a first-grader in 2010 said Tuesday that the boy was among several 6- and 7-year-olds who were detained and handcuffed for hours for talking in class.

In an email to the Tribune, attorney Michael Carin said school officials at Carver Primary School on the Far South Side authorized the on-campus security guard in March 2010 to discipline some first-graders who were being disruptive.

I figure the security guard, and every one of the "school officials"that were at the school at the time of the incident should immediately loose their jobs...as for further punishment...I guess that'd be up to the families involved....I think the security guard really needs a "taste of his own".

Handcuffed?? Really? I didn't know they made them small enough for a six year old wrist. Seems like a waste of time to carry them around. Suppose the guard had an adult to 'cuff?
