Did they give him the paddle and teach him what he did wrong? Naw, let's put him in the system because that clearly works....

7-year-old boy arrested for punching teacher at Florida school | wivb.com

MIAMI — School district officials in South Florida say they followed standard protocol last week when a 7-year-old boy was placed in handcuffs and removed from his school after he punched his teacher repeatedly in the back, kicked her and grabbed her hair. The incident began Thursday when a teacher at the Coral Way K-8 Center in Miami told the first-grader to stop playing with his food in the cafeteria.

When the child refused to stop, he was taken from the cafeteria, according to an incident report from Miami-Dade County Public Schools police officer Munick Soriano.

The report says the boy hit the teacher repeatedly in the back when they were in a hallway outside the cafeteria. The child continued punching and kicking the teacher until they both fell on the ground.

Eventually the boy was hospitalized briefly at Miami Children’s Hospital under the Florida Mental Health Act, based on behavioral criteria that indicated he could pose a threat to himself or others, school district officials said.

The child’s mother, Mercy Alvarez, said her son doesn’t have a mental disorder. Instead, she called her son’s arrest “police abuse.”

“If my child wasn’t aggressive anymore when we got there, like they were saying he was before, why take such extreme measures,” she asked.

Alvarez said her child didn’t show aggressive behavior at home. She says she is looking into why the boy only began having problems there since the school year started. She says that in previous years he got good grades, participated in other activities and showed good conduct.

“This is too much for a boy that age to go through. It can’t be a normal procedure,” she said.

Alvarez shared a friend’s Facebook post, which includes video of her son’s arrest. She wrote in part: “I’ve uncovered Pandora’s box by screaming this injustice. Hundreds of children like mine have been victims of the same procedure, but I want that officer to keep it in mind that he will never hurt any child in this way.”

“The parents who have gone through the same thing can only recommend that they do not shut up,” she continued. “A 7-year-old doesn’t deserve to live a situation like this. I ask all my friends to share so that this injustice is known.”

The Associated Press does not typically identify minors who have been arrested but is naming the child’s mother because she has spoken openly on social media and to newspaper reporters about the case.

The officer wrote that another teacher and several students witnessed the incident, which was also captured on the school’s surveillance camera. The boy’s parents were notified and came to the school, the report said.

The child’s father agreed with school officials that the child should be taken to a mental health facility, the report said. But the mother disagreed, telling officials nothing is wrong with her son. Alvarez said the officer was threatening to take the child to jail if they didn’t agree for him to be taken to a mental health facility for an evaluation.

The teacher told the officer her back was hurting after the incident but she didn’t have any visible injuries. She told officials she intends to press charges, the report said.

Ian Moffett, the school district’s police chief, said in a statement that it was “rare for students this young to be Baker Acted,” referring to a Florida law called the Baker Act that allows police and certain other officials to initiate an involuntary institutionalization for a psychological evaluation.

“However this action was warranted to prevent his erratic and violent behavior from bringing further harm to others or himself,” the statement said.

Moffett said the officer followed standard operating procedures in taking the child to the hospital.

The district’s Professional Compliance Unit is investigating the incident.

HEPHZIBAH, Ga. (AP) — Paddling students is now a disciplinary policy at a Georgia charter school and parents who don't consent have to agree to up to five days of suspension for their children instead.

The Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics sent parents a letter last week, informing them that “paddling” students on the buttocks with a piece of wood will now be a form of punishment.

Superintendent Jody Boulineau says the kindergarten through ninth grade school has received a little more than 100 of the forms back and a third of them give consent to use the paddle.

Boulineau says the corporal punishment won't be used often, and just the threat of it will be a deterrent.

The form says students will be spanked in an office with closed doors and shouldn't be struck more than three times.

I mean...people are getting chopped up and kidnapped in poor countries...the Earth is drying out and dying....and some fuckin kids getting hit with a paddle is our number one concern. White people problems.
People have been getting chopped up and kidnapped for hundreds of thousands of years (maybe you didn't know that). The earth is 2/3 water (maybe you didn't know that). According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) in 2013 black males accounted for 37% of the total male prison population, white males 32%, and Hispanic males 22%. (Obviously you didn't know that). The incarceration of our future should be our number one concern. This is an US people problem. Thanks for creating a corny new profile to share your ignorance.

The incarceration of who? The incarceration of people who don't value the gift of being born in this country.

Mass incarceration is a stupid ass term. It's like someone is going around with a big ass net and just throwing people in jail like the old school dog catcher.

How many people you know go to jail who didn't commit crime? Please.

The mentality is the problem, not the place they send people after they fuck up. Its like blaming the toilet paper that you shit your pants.

Mass incarceration is a bigger problem than climate change? How hard are you puffin that glass dick and how many nights have you spent behind Denny's disassembling TVs to come up with this theory?

Don't want to go to jail, don't commit crime. Even a 4 year old child could give you that cause and effect. "It's not their fault they're commiting crimes, they are from X minority group".

Borderline racist assumption that poverty and being a minority genetically predisposes people to crime. You all know the nerdy ass kid in school who shut the fuck up and studied. Guess what? They didn't go to jail, even with poverty + dark skin. It's a magic trick.

Blaming the system and not the mentality ensures that "mass incarceration" will continue. Keep looking everywhere else besides the actual person who commits the crime for the reason they go to jail.

Meanwhile Ima go shopping and blame the lack of coupons for my running out of money after buying 47 cases of Aquafina be easy fambam.
