Is there like something in the water?  Or are they smoking something, and if so, think they'll share?  I can see fining a kid or something for serious vandalism, but erasable marker?  For that detention and cleaning the desk would've fit the crime.

My boyfriend told me that when he was in high school a kindergartner came in dressed as a fireman for Halloween.  He was arrested for carrying a weapon because he had a plastic axe....

While all of it seems downright disturbing...

I think even scarier is the mention in the article of the five year old who was cuffed and taken out of his kindergarten class.

The innocuous last paragraph is what REALLY pisses me off. 

Quote
Alexa is still suspended from her school, her mother said. She and her mom went to family court on Tuesday, where Alexa was assigned eight hours of community service, a book report and an essay on what she learned from the experience.

They took her to court for this, and she was charged and given a punishment. 

YOU WILL OBEY.
YOU WILL CONFORM.
YOU WILL FEAR AUTHORITY.

I have absolutely no doubt the charges are 'defacing school property' and will be on her record.

It was mentioned in another article that her suspension was dropped, and there where admissions that "it was a bad call".

Last time I looked at the laws defacing public property (school desk) and the like is illegal so they should get arrested.

While defacing public property is indeed illegal, I seriously doubt the situation called for a little girl to be handcuffed.  The offense is not violent and unless the child was somehow a danger to herself or others, there is no need for restraints.  In truth I donít understand why law enforcement should be involved at all.  Simply fine the parents if the defacement is that bad.  No need to arrest her, charge her and then sentence her in the manner.

That was a poor judgment call on the part of the school and the police making the arrest.  People are setting adult values and actions onto childhood activities.  Are assault charges going to be placed on boys that run by and pull the pig tails of girls?  This is no way for our society to act and behave in regard to children.

I used to live around that area... -cringes-

It's really pathetic that they resorted to handcuffing a girl for doodling lord knows what would happen if she had drawn all of the desk.
