POLICE ARREST 8-YEAR-OLD WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AFTER SUBSTITUTE TEACHER SCREWS THE POOCH
So much to say here. But outrage can’t fit onto the largest canvas, even here. So this is new news on an old arrest. In 2018, police arrested an 8-year-old boy with special needs. Did he kill someone? No. Did he have a special individual education plan? Oh, yes. So what happened? Well, there was a substitute teacher, for one. And no common sense or decency available anywhere. The responding officers even lectured the poor child during his arrest. They even put handcuffs on him that were too big. They fell off.
SCARED STRAIGHT HAS IT’S USES, BUT ON A SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD THE SCHOOL FAILED?
So clearly the idea that schools and prisons have similar designs goes way beyond the architecture. The idea of “scaring kids straight” is an interesting one. But for a kid 8 years old? It just makes no sense. It’s about punishment with no real crime. In education. By supposed educators with authoritatively blind police behind them. So what sparked all this? Well, the substitute teacher didn’t apply this special needs child’s plan in the classroom. And when her authority didn’t cow the child, he punched her in the chest. He’s 8. Have you heard about the principal’s office? No? Well, I guess that’s why you called the police for assault. By a minor 3 and a half feet tall, maybe 60 pounds. With special needs. Why did they handcuff him, again?
VIDEO RELEASE TELLS YOU ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW, POLICE LOVE AUTHORITY EVEN OVER SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD
Disgusting. Beyond disgusting. And we are only seeing the video now. It makes it plain how wrong all this is. But I must admit, I saw the video before I knew the details and it made me pretty upset. But then I learned he had special needs in the classroom with a formal plan of engagement. And then I learned that the substitute teacher first didn’t do her job. And when that resulted in oppositional behavior, she called the police. The boy’s family’s lawyer is none other than Benjamin Crump, who is no slouch. Keep an eye on this. Felony battery charges? Whew! So the district is gonna pay for this one. And the police.
