Police handcuff Ga. kindergartner for tantrum

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia handcuffed a kindergartner after the girl threw a tantrum, and the police chief is making no apologies.

WMAZ-TV reports the 6-year-old is accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing furniture at school in the central Georgia city of Milledgeville. The police report says the girl knocked over a shelf and injured the principal.

The elementary school called police after the Friday tantrum. The report says when an officer tried to calm the child, she resisted and was handcuffed. The girl was charged with simple assault and damage to property.

Police Chief Dray Swicord says the department’s policy is to handcuff people in certain situations, and “there is no age discrimination on that rule.”

The child was suspended from school until August.

Not sure why this is news, but a kid like that needs to be handcuffed.

Probably the liberals expecting people to say how this poor child was being mistreated, or some garbage like that. Likely a result of no discipline at home.

The kid is probably just like it's loser parents. No surprise the way some of these animals act in public.
