|The face of RAGE|
A six year-old Georgia girl was handcuffed, arrested, and hauled off by police last week after they were called to the scene by her Principal. It was said the child threw furniture, 'tore items off walls', and knocked over a shelf which 'injured the principal'. Holy cow! What are they putting in the milk and juice boxes these days?! Obviously the parents of the vicious child beast, Selicia Johnson, are outraged. Georgia police defend their handling of the situation saying they were following 'policy'. There's no mention of the students offense, but c'mon! You called the police on a six year-old child?! How does this school deal with a fight? Is the SWAT team dispatched? On the other hand, I remember being called to the Principal's office a time or two. At that age everything was 'stupid'. and you responded to any authority figure with a "whatever", but I would have never Hulk-raged and tried to destroy her office. If this is how she responds to discipline, I'd hate to have to deal with her mother.
Regardless, I find it hard to believe that the authorities had to be summoned to handle an elementary school student. At what point where the parents called? Why weren't they present? The school system is royally effed up in this nation. Just watch Waiting For Superman, it'll make you feel like you just finished eating Taco Bell
We're not going to go all Dateline expose on the school system or the parental affects of how we respect elders and authority figures. The bottom line is that you don't call the police on a 1st grader, there's no need to handcuff a child, and our school system (and the people running it) are in serious need of a reality check.
Here's the article, BTW.
