St. Louis’ KMOV reports an elementary school student Jmyha Rickman, 8, was handcuffed by her wrists and feet and was taken tot he police station after throwing a tantrum in school.

School officials at Lovejoy Elementary School called the Alton, Ill. police to intervene during what was apparently a bad tantrum that Rickman regularly has.

Rickman’s guardian, Nehemiah Keeton told KMOV, “Her eyes were swollen from her crying and her wrists had welts on them.” She also said the 8-year old was treated like a criminal.

  • So are we starting to throw 8 year olds in jail now? Even worse for acting natural just like the kid she is (there is a place for them but it sure isn’t jail)? What a pathetic society!!
