Alright, for those who haven’t seen the video clip, here it is .

It seems the opinions on arresting this child are split down the middle. Here’s my view, and id like to know the opinions of others.

If that child was me, and my school was considering arresting me to teach me a lesson after repeated unacceptable behavior, my parents would be right there assisting the police. After watching this video, it is 100 percent obvious to me this child has no idea what the word “noâ€

From just watching that short video I can tell that something si honestly wrong with htis child. While the school was ina bind because of the mother not leaving work, I dont think that arresting a five year old will solve many of the problems she obviously has. It was sad to see because the child just looked like hse was starved for someone to give her some attention for something, anb obviously she doesnt get it from her mother at home who wouldnt leave work to see about her child. I am not sure wha thte best solution might have been but I dont think actually handcuffing the child behind her back was the most clear-headed approach to this porblem.
