    How DARE they treat a 5 year old this way!!! Yes, he disobeyed, but THAT kind of treatment is going to stick in his head for ever. He is going to choke every time he sees a cop or cop car. Let's hope he NEVER has to call for help, because I don't think he will be able to, thanks to this very mishandling of a child. It might have worked for a 10 and up year old child ...BUT NOT for someone who is still trying to figure out why he has a bed time, school, dressing for the weather and has to eat his vegetables. Lord, those cops need instructions on how to handle BABIES....that is what this child is. Just My Opinion

    Talk about making a child fear the police for the rest of his life! I would never do that to anyones child!

    That makes me SO mad when I hear a little one cry like that. Those cops( if you can call them cops.) should be fired and not just a slap on the hand they should pay for the way they treated that poor little guy.

    I would have gone up one side of those officers and down the other, mother of the child or not, no officer should talk to a child like that. If id seen this, trust and believe i would have gone off! I have two little boys and if any person, let alone and officer was talking like that to my or any child I would have done something...this is disgraceful!

    That’s why there’s so many bad kids out there to say because parents want to baby their kids what mom doesn’t understand is the way the child is acting right now he’s gonna be a lot worse when he becomes a teenager and she’s on beg for that cop to be there when she should be doing it now that he’s young so he can learn that that’s what the consequences are mom is not gonna be able to bail him out of all his troubles

    I don’t care what color anyone in this video is... he is a 5 year old who left school. That first off should of never happen, but it does. That’s is the first thing that needs addressed. How does a 5 year old get out of a school alone? Then the cops are 100%. In the wrong. Even if there is more video... they are wrong! He is 5!! Those poor crocodile tears broke my heart. The officers were 100 disrespectful, and should be fired and never ever allowed around christen ever!! Good luck momma! I hope you take them to the cleaners!!

    Wrong way to handle that. They traumatised that kid. And to say, that's why some parents need to beat their kids. Maybe if those officers had gotten corrected as children, they wouldn't be on a power trip with a 5 year old, because they're wearing a badge. I agree, discipline starts at home. And should start at an early age, so the system doesn't wind up trying to discipline them later, because they been able to get away with too much. But, for those officers to both belittle that child, and then she said parents should beat them. That's wrong.
