Police in Georgia handcuffed a kindergartner after the girl threw a tantrum at school, and the police chief defended the action.
The girl's family demanded Tuesday that the central Georgia city of Milledgeville change its policy so that other children aren't treated the same way. They say the child was shaken up by being put in a cell at the police station.
Salecia Johnson, 6, was accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing furniture in an outburst Friday at Creekside Elementary School, Macon television station WMAZ-TV reported. Police said the girl knocked over a shelf that injured the principal.
Well, yes, maybe over the top, but kids need to learn that they can't just act any way they want because they are unhappy. She injured a staff member, that is not ok.
