Default Kindergartner Charged with Battery

As I watch all of the arrests, federal and state, there does seem to be a trend.. I think it is one in 10 have a conviction, but I could be wrong. Article discussing children and arrests.

It is outrageous. Little children being tazed, pepper sprayed and led off in handcuffs for being kids. Our zero tolerance society is causing serious harm to its citizens. Just imagine the opinion of these children who have been bullied by the police and school administrators. Is that any way to teach children to be good citizens who respect authority, sure. It probably does insure that there will be no shortage of new inductees into the prison systems in the future, though.

If I ever have a kid, they won't be going to school in America, that's for sure. The US is my home, but it's not a home I want to live in anymore. It's insane.

I moved your thread here as it is a better fit in the Juvenile forum.
