    I was this child but much worse. I was handcuffed more than once and it did leave me feeling confused because I didn’t understand why everyone was mad at me. Yes he is a child but when he is trying to make decisions for himself it’s likely the parents fault for his disobedience. He’s used to doing what he wants so when it’s time for collaborative learning he has a hard time working with others. The officers did nothing wrong

    I feel bad for the mother and child how embarrassing it has to be to be degraded in front of school staff about how to raise and discipline your child. It's not there decision to make on how to raise someone else child let alone throw them in the back of a patrol car things could have been handled differently. I hope she gets every penny

    What if him leaving school walking alone lead to his death. Then what would you all be saying. I think they did right. They were just trying to scare him. Yeah I said what I said

    Did no one notice the cops were black and telling the mom she needs to beat her child. They didn’t say she did. They didn’t hurt the kid but putting the fear into him is not wrong. My dad was military he never had to hit me but he sure put the fear into me that I would get a beating of my life and it made me think twice

    This is outrageous, yes he needed discipline that wasn't the way. He's five if the parents did what these officers did they would be in jail.

    Ya know. I support police very much. But I’m sorry. If an officer did this bs to my 5 year old , I’d be in jail. And that officer would have to retire since he would no longer be able to move any part of his body. Don’t get me wrong it’s on the parents for the child’s behavior. But a 5 year old has no idea and will push boundaries. But the bs the officer did in first 30 seconds was way to much.
