This is such a sad story.
So many tortured elements in one article, it's hard to know what is the most disturbing.
First of all-who in the hell calls the police and handcuffs an 8 year old child? What kind of cretin police officer handcuffs a child? I don't care what kind of "tantrum" it was-an 8 year old girl cannot be handcuffed and jailed in a civilized society.
Then, read the article.
The girl's name is Jmyha Rickman.
Now we already know that odd sounding names put certain people at a disadvantage. Some kids start out life disadvantaged because their parents are total morons who-in this case-didn't realize that the letter "y" was not a sufficient application of vowel sounds for an easily pronounceable name.
The child has no parents in the picture-just a "guardian".
And the stupid school is named "Love Joy Elementary School".
This could just as easily be called-everything dysfunctional in the African American community today. And the police-black or white, are just as reprehensible as the alleged adults, the absent parents who have failed this child from her birth.
