The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

Mr invisible, check back around post 15 or 20 I think. A more detailed story was posted. It included the fact that the wooden object was described by the police as a foot long piece of wooden trim with a knife like point. It notes the child was throwing things, including a tv. It also stated that housed a cart to try and bust down the door to the room the teacher had taken the kids into after attempts to calm the kid failed
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
And frankly...your credibility suffers when you state that the cops would have been better off grabing the kid by the arm and beating his ass. Do you know the physical damage that can be caused by merely grabbing an out of control child by the arm? Followed by an ass beating? Really? And thats the cops role? And that beating would have gotten more of an outcry?
You and reality arent friends in this situation. I think you spoke off the cuff from the get go and wont back down just cuz....
"It wasn't the first time officers had been called to pacify Aidan, Davis said. They'd been able to talk him down in two other incidents."
Personally, I would have tried talking to the kid. See if there was something he wanted, see if there was some type of deal that could be brokered.
Now if that failed and the cops then used the pepper spray, I wouldn't have had a problem.
