TKC MUST READ!!! COURT UPHOLDS POLICE HANDCUFF CRACKDOWN ON UNRULY KANSAS CITY STUDENTS!!!
A teachable moment as youngsters are forced to learn about politics, culture war and submission at gunpoint at an even younger age . . . Checkit:
Last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit grappled with the question of how to balance the rights of students with the need for security and order in schools. In a case arising from a Kansas City public school, a police officer handcuffed a 7-year-old black boy and escorted him to the principal’s office for becoming upset after a classmate “incessantly teased” him. The boy remained handcuffed until his father arrived at school 20 minutes later.
Bringing in police officers to handcuff second-graders simply because they are upset or defiant is not good educational policy. But according to the 8th Circuit, it’s legal.
