BTW, if it seems like kids are becoming more unruly, it's only because parents are becoming crappier.

It's no surprise that the police/military state takes over the school system as the government wages its war against a parent's way of raising their child (I.E., no coporal punishment).

Now that's how you earn respect!!!

Seriously, any cop/s who would arrest a 6 year old, should automatically be disqualified from being a cop.
So thats 2 threads where you have yet to come up with a solution on how to handle a violent child yet you continue to harp on the cops who are only doing their job.

And this one makes me sick ...

I have absolutely no problem with the police taking them - and their parents - into custody. And leaving them there.

My first job out of nursing school was at a psych hospital where I was primarily assigned to the Children and Adolescent's Unit. The most violent, out of control children were the four through eight year olds. Seeing a child that age screaming, cursing, threatening, kicking, biting, etc., is scary. Figuring out how to bring them under control without hurting them is even worse.

I see no problem with this. The kid was acting up and threatening to kill people and instead of trying to grab and tackle this kid themselves they called the police. Guarantee if this article had the Principal or teachers grabbing the kid and him getting injured there would be a lawsuit.

The cop took him outside to calm him down and instead of letting him go back to class they took him to the station. They probably should have took him home but who knows why they didn't. Maybe they couldn't get in touch with the parents. Who knows.

Was this before or after the Supreme Court ruling on strip search of anybody arrested for any reason?

Can't you just picture a 6 year old going after adults? Hopefully he'll get no more than 12 years in juvee..... Gotta get these violent toddlers off the street before they go on a killing spree.....

I suggest you read the book "Kids Who Kill" by Charles Patrick Ewing he writes of two brothers from Missouri ages 4 and 6 who attacked and killed a baby girl because "she was ugly".

The law is the law. It should be enforced regardless of how old or young someone is. You do da crime, you do da time. If a 17 year old student had threatened to kill someone, they would have hauled him away. The law does not play favorites. They did the right thing.
