If you are unable to deal with a 6 year old as a teacher or head of a school they are worthless losers IMO. No police officer has ever been called in my country to deal with an unruly 6 year old. In the Netherlands no child of that age will ever be arrested, let alone handcuffed, finger printed and a mugshot made of them.

    The grandma made a statement about that but the police, who have been forthright and fired the officer, said that she is mistaken. And there was no 8 year old. Both kids arrested were 6 years old... another reporting error. The grandma is getting her info from a six year old, who probably has no idea what was actually happening.

    This is very sad. The police need better training in deescalating situations. It seems their second nature is kicking ass, making arrests, and too often firing their weapons. Somebody needed to just calm the child down. The police need to be trained differently.

    If the parents were trained better the police wouldn't have a problem.

    The police shouldnt have been called to begin with. The school should have had guidelines and a process in place to handle that.

    How dare they! The girl should have been tazed. Electroshoxk therapy is good for you.
    And the girl gets a nice picture to frame...

    More proof that the police, retired or not, have no business in schools as 'resource' officers. Hire vets instead because they don't get butthurt when 6 y.o. don't listen.


    A US police officer has been suspended after arresting two six-year-olds at a school in Orlando, Florida.
    One of the two was handcuffed after throwing a tantrum and kicking a teacher, the girl's grandmother told US media.
    The officer, Dennis Turner, was suspended as officials said he did not secure the necessary permissions to arrest the two.
    Prosecutors say they will try to erase the arrests from their records.
    Both children were charged with misdemeanour battery. Little about the other arrest - which was in a separate incident - has been made public.
    "The children will not be prosecuted, and just as importantly I am looking into options that may reverse the legal damage such as removing the arrest from the children's records," said State Attorney Aramis Ayala in a news conference.
    Police Chief Orlando Rolón said in a statement: "As a grandparent of three children less than 11-years-old this is very concerning to me. Our department strives to deliver professional and courteous service."
    Neither child has been identified by police, but the grandmother of one of the children said she suffered sleep apnoea which had contributed to her behaviour.

    Meralyn Kirkland told NBC that when she went to retrieve her granddaughter from jail, "they told us we had to wait a few minutes because [she] was being fingerprinted, and when she said fingerprinted it hit me like a tonne of bricks".

    "No six-year-old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile centre to be fingerprinted, mug shot."
    According to Orlando Police, Mr Turner was retired from the police force but was working as security in the school as part of the local department's reserve unit.

    Schools have increasingly turned to hiring part-time officers since a series of deadly school shooting attacks, such as on Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018.

    According to AFP, 46% of US schools have an officer present on campus for at least one day of each week.
    The Officer should have his suspension removed from his record as well.

    I know everyone is saying how bad the cop was but somebody must have called him in the first place.

    But people , people what is going on that we need to call the cops on a 6 year old? I realize restrictions have been placed on teachers as to what they can do with a rebellious student but now we have completely gone into Crazy Town Mode.
