Public Schools Call Cops to Deal With 6-Year-Olds

Written by Gary North on April 27, 2012

When police officers haul off 6-year-olds in handcuffs, they have lost their judgment.

When school officials feel so threatened by 6-year-olds that they call the police to help keep order, we know the schools are being run by utter incompetents.

Yet this is happening all over America. Here are examples.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
#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“. . . .

#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. . . .

#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. . . .

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.

* * * * * * * * * * * * *
Parents who keep their children in a school that pulls any stunt like this are as devoid of judgment as the principals and the cops are.  Any parent who shrugs his shoulders and sends his child back to school in any of these schools is unwilling to face reality.

Home schooling is the answer.

  1. Government run one size fits all schools

  2. gunner48 says:

    as with everything we do in this country, nothing is done with any commonsense. We do everything to the extreme…..Corporal punishment is out. And rthen things became so lacks the kids were running the schools. Now we are a police state. The cops have enough to do. Teachers and parents should do there jobs, These kids should be questioned and determined if these cases are frivalous. And if it is found to be a kids fault Parents as well as the schools should hold the CHILD accoutable. And quit giving kids a PASS….They have to grow up sometime and realise the world is a cruel place…

  3. sean murry says:

    What those kids need is a good rear end spakeing.

  4. and just where were the parents before all of this started? It ll lies on the parents and not the government.

  5. I just saw on the news where a parent was accusing a teacher of bullying his autistic child. while I may not agree with what happened what the parent is doing is tying the hands of the teachers even more. I would like to see the parent try to teach a class of 30 autistic children. The teacher was automatically guilty. Did he attend class to actually observe what was going on? Was his child completely innocent as he claimed?

  6. Gee , a grown up who can't deal with or handle 6 year olds , what a bunch of incompetent and or lazy teachers our collages are turning out

  7. EHeassler, USN-Ret. says:

    Where to start? There are so many factors influencing the so called educators that it is hard to name any one as the primary problem. #1) Laws and bad laws. There are so many laws on the books that nearly everthing is illegal. Define illegal touching. It can be anything. That pretty much eliminates physical contact of any kind. #2) Lawyers & lawsuits. The administrators, rather than solve problems using common sense, pass the buck to legal authorities to avoid liablity from anticipated lawsuits. They'd rather traumatize a child for life than solve problems at the lowest level possible.#3) The administrators see inappropriate sexual behaviour in innocent childplay involving touching, kissing, hugging, hitting, etc. yet by the 4th & 5th grades are teaching the same kids about sex. In some cases the instruction is explicit and the kids are learning straight sex, gay sex, man-boy love. The Secretary of Education is an advocate of man-boy love. Go figure. Bottom line, consider all touching a crime, all outbursts a crime, all resistance to authority a crime, and defer all remedies to police and courts. If I still had young children, I would never enroll thim in public schools again. I'd home school them.

    And then you have the opposite. My Aunt and Uncle lived in Miami. One day, when they both ere in their eighties, a group of latinos drove across the sidewalk into their lawn and parked their truck right outside the windows of the house and climbed on top of the truck and began removing the coconutts from the trees next to the house, My Aunt and uncle were in their eighties and terrified. They called the police. The police told them

    " we don't come out for coconuts"

  9. Simple solution, if the teacher is not capable of handling a class of 30 autistic children then he needs to find another job, or request additional help to do it properly. A teachers bad decision for a career is not the disabled kids fault!

  10. goldendragon2012 says:

    "Homeschooling is the answer". But how many are taking it up? Any figures?

  11. DEFEATOBAMAIN2012 says:

    Gee when I was growing up, the worst thing I was told when I misbehaved was they were calling my parents to come to school.
    Spanked by the principle and spanked again when I got home. Sent to knee in the corner, and went to bed without any supper.
    Besides writing 100 times I will not misbehave. Wow that was the good old days.

  12. Yes I think that the handcuffs, etc… are extreme, but I can also see the school's point because if they do what 'should' be done, then they will be charged with abuse. Also, parents are NOT raising their children properly these days. They do not discipline consistently or at all; they do not teach their children to respect their peers or authority; they do not enforce consequences for their children. When there is proper training at home, then a teacher can handle 30 kids in a classroom (remember one room school houses?), but there is no training at home these days so the kids are completely out of control. I even experience this when I'm teaching Sunday School for 10 3/4 year olds! I'm basically anti-public school, but I do not expect anyone to be able to keep 30 wild children under control all by themselves much less teach them!

  13. Liberals abolish the Paddle I think it's time to bring it back. Parent signs a release form if they don't then they can find another school

  14. The greatest problem is that the teachers and administrators most likely would be prosecuted for child abuse if they were to restrain the child. My wife has retired from teaching. While she was teaching the rules kept getting more stringent about not touching a child regardless of the actions. They are only allowed to try to reason with a child throwing a temper tantrum. The child that is referenced in the headline had turned over a library book shelf on the principal. This is assult by any definition. The only thing the school could do without someone losing their career was to call the police who are then allowed to restrain the our of control child. The parents seem to think that the child who is a terror at home has become an angel when they go to school. The teachers have 20+ children for which they are responsible. One unruly child completely disrupts the entire class and they all lose out on a good education. Parents need to support the teachers instead of blaming the teacher for their child's bad behavior.

  15. DoctorBob says:

    We need to add another line to The Litany of the Episcopal Church:

    "Protect us, oh Lord, from the idiocy of the Progressives. we beseech thee to hear us, Good Lord."

  16. Yes, but the parents would sue the school and so calling the police is perhaps the next best thing.

  17. Just a few thoughts of my own. It seems to me that this kind of action by the kids stems from a total lack of respect and discipline taught and applied in the home. Then to top that off, the schools refuse to apply discipline any more not only because of liberal laws such as those (no spanking) in California, but also out of fear of liabilities from the parents of those children refusing to discipline their own children. With laws like this we have just empowered the parents (who don't teach respect at home) against the schools.

  18. 2WarAbnVet says:

    The teachers' only option is to call the cops. If they tried to jerk a knot in the kids, as teachers did in times past, they'd be arrested fro child abuse. The kids are aware that the power rests with them, and are sufficiently immature to take full advantage of the fact.

  19. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

    No, the biggest problem is it's the PARENTS the teachers can handle. When you're threatened with lawsuits, or physically assaulted by a parent, if ANY punishment is given, then you tend to turn to some kind of alternative. The police may use poor judgment in handcuffing these young children, but, until parents stop allowing their children to get away with bullying, & other bad behavior, it's not going to stop. Some of the reasons are totally stupid, but when a child is pitching a tantrum like the one little girl was, rather than cause harm or injury to the child, they called the law. And, blame the unions for the lazy & incompetent teachers that are in the schools because of the unions threats to the school systems.

  20. S-P-A-N-K-I-N-G. Just a help in the grammar department.

  21. The parents should be called to pick up their child. They should be told that the child will be sent home every time he/she disrupts class. They must pick them up immediately not later, but now. This will put the responsibility for their behavior back to the parents. Missing enough work or whatever should give the parents a heads up on what happens when teachers have lost all powers of discipline in the school. The teachers are afraid of the kids not the other way around. Anybody who thinks kids shouldn't be disciplined probably hasn't raised any or has self-centered spoiled brats.

  22. The father of the child placed a hidden recorder on his child and the teacher was being abusive in addition to discussing her severe hangover with another teacher instead of teaching. The teacher thought she could get away with it because her students are autistic and she knew they probably couldn't report her. The father did what he did because he noticed a change in his son for the worse. One teacher was fired and the other is suspended. If you have no patience to teach autistic children then you should find another job.

  23. The school board is afraid of the principals, the principals are afraid of the teachers, the teachers are afraid of the parents and the parents are afraid of their children. My dad told me this 55 years ago and it is even truer now than it was then.

  24. @Goldendragon – "Home"schooling families have increased ~ 85% from 1999 (when first recorded) to 2010. 'Official' records showed approx 1.5 million in 2009, but this figure was thought to be conservative & may actually have been closer to 2 million.

    The term "Home" in schooling is so misconstrued – especially people concerned about socialization (Really?!!) or not getting a well rounded curriculum. I have a large number of friends/acquaintances who home school and every-single-one co-ops. One dad/mom may be great with math/physics, etc. Another dad/mom may have been a HS English teacher or journalism teacher, etc. What this also means is there is a LOT of socialization. My daughter and son-in-law plan to 'home' school. She has a journalism major, he is a software engineer for a household name company. Their theory: "I have seen the village, and I do NOT want it raising my child"!

  26. FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THE NWO and THE BANALITY OF EVIL. The Little Known Flip Side of the Milgram Experiment. Refuse To Comply. Learn more, http://thedailybell.com/3836/Joel-F-Wade-The-Bana… You are probably familiar with Stanley Milgram's Obedience to Authority experiments. Subjects were asked to administer ascending quantities of electrical shock to people each time they answered a question incorrectly. Two thirds of participants administered the full range of shock, simply because the person in authority, a man with a white coat, would say, "The experiment requires that you continue." This is very scary, of course, but there's more to the story. In a little known but vitally important detail in these experiments, those who witnessed another person refuse to comply with the authority were dramatically more likely to refuse to comply themselves. In this case only 10% obeyed the orders of the authority. The power of a positive example represents a huge potential for good. One representative with that kind of integrity can make a world of difference, the potential to defy the status quo of the Progressive Agenda. Now comes the hard work of dismantling the EVIL Administrative State that has been built in defiance of our founding principles.

  28. For 150 years there were no public schools in America and our education system was one of the best in the world. I think it is time to stop the government indoctrination of our innocent children by doing away with the whole public school disaster.

  29. Any cop that puts a 6yr old child in handcuffs should be fired. And fire the incompetent principal and teacher too!

  30. GreenBulldog says:

    I get it!!!

    A teacher disciplines a student, and he gets in trouble for abuse, but if a cops abuses a student, that's discipline. After all, cops don't get in trouble.

    I see why teachers call cops.

    More parents are turning to homeschooling every day. In our small town of 25,000, we have a strong homeschool association of close to 100 families. My grandchildren have grown up in it and two are now in college. Check the internet to see if there is an association in your community. You will find open arm acceptance. These kids are taught patriotism, integrity, character, entrepreneurship, manners, and much much more, and it is done in an atmosphere of faith.

  32. aurora35 says:

    The schools and all the new regulations have become so dis-functional, that it has minimized the crux of education…to educate!

  33. I think, upon some reflection, that the whole reason for the inane over-reaction in these cases is fear of being prosecuted and/or fired for taking the situation in hand. No teacher wants to lay hands on a misbehaving kid–this could be a career-ender. So what to do? Call the principal? The principal is equally fearful. What to do? Call the parents? The parents often are not available, or if they are, they're as intimidated as anyone else under the no-corporal-punishment rules. So they call in the law. Surely the law is able to do what the mundanes can't, right? But the law is increasingly becoming inhabited by twenty- and thirty-somethings, without a commonsense neuron in their heads, or with Gen X or Boomer bosses who taught them to be that way. So what we see is the inevitable outcome of all this societal craziness.

  34. Currently there are about three million children being home schooled and it is growing rapidly as online programs become less expensive and more comprehensive. Home schooled students out score even private school students and are far better educated than public school students. I believe it is the wave of the future. At least parents don't need the police to maintain discipline.

  35. George Washington had only one year of school and Thomas Jefferson had none. They were home schooled as were most children in the 1700's. We are beginning to return to that idea and, with computers, it should be much easier for parents.

  36. Paul Trombley says:

    #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.

    Let's suppose that it was a bus driver who gave the kid the wedgie. The driver gave the exact same wedgie.

    Should the bus driver have been arrested?

  37. Allow me to add my two cents' worth…the term "socialization" is a contradiction, as you can see by the general chaos and deterioration of the public schools. This has been their mantra since the early 1900s. "Socialize" them by placing each child in a group of 20 or more with their own age group, effectively segregating them from other groups. As we can all see, this does not work and this is what we get: children who are out of control, undisciplined, and authorities who are afraid of parents (young people themselves who were "socialized" as well). True socialization is when you place a child in a group represented by different ages. True socialization actually starts in the home where the adults get married, stay married, and produce offspring of various ages and where they're taught to help one another, support one another, and contribute to the family. I agree with KimS's percentages but those may even have changed.

  38. IF CORPORAL PUNISHMENT CAN'T BE REINSTATED TO TEACH DISIPLINE, THEN THE PARENTS SHOULD BE LOCKED UP BY THE POLICE. THEN MAYBE A LITTLE DISIPLINE WILL BE ADMINISTERED AT HOME TO CREATE LITTLE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OUT OF THESE SPOILED BRATS THAT ALWAYS EXPECT TO GET THEIR WAY.

  39. LOCK UP THE PARENTS OF THE BRATS, AND THE SPANKING WILL BEGIN.

    I couldn't agree more, as I certainly received my share of them. I am a good citizen and my Mother would still dust my behind with a switch if I acted like that child. However, the schools cannot be totally blamed. The courts took discipline from the schools, and tied the administration and the teachers hands.
    The parents are too busy trying to be their children's "friend."
    I am not my child's friend, I am her Mother. As long as I am responsible for her, she will behave. This child's mother was called 6 times according to police and she would not respond, citing lack of minutes on her phone.
    It is not the school's job to mold a child's character. That is the family's job.

  41. Dark_nite says:

    As of 2010 there was a report that said that the number is growing by about 7% each year and in the past 10 years that would mean that the number has doubled in the next 5 years by 2014 it will double yet again. Yet the public school population only grew by about .59% for the same period.

    About 2.2 million kids were homeschooled this past year. In a small community (2500 students in the public system) that I used to live in over 35% of the school age children were educated outside of the public system. over 300 of them in one private school.

    This is a problem for the public system because it represents over 11.2 million dollars that that one school system can not collect in taxes from the federal and state and local governments. The school system had a working budget of 18.0 million dollars. Loosing 11.2 Mil. is like cutting their budget by 40%. You gotta believe it hurts them financially.
