Boy with autism arrested for assault after police called to classroom

23 posts in this topic

My wife says pretty much what I said, the school staff is undertrained and if that cop has CIT he missed the point, which is to avoid such injuries... If the kids climbing a wall, unless there's some imminent danger, you should just let them come down on their own, then deal with them.

Also, she said that seclusion rooms are fine in NC, as long as they follow prescribed guidelines.

You're right, but I'm learning more since SuperMan started posting in the Tinderbox.

You are quite funny.

I have a masters degree in business and I am a corporate communications manager for At&t.

But the great Rodeo says I'm challenged so it must be true.... ;)

The cop did his job. If you don't want this outcome, don't call a police officer. What was the cop supposed to do, give him a spanking and a good scolding? That kid kicked him in the face, he's lucky he didn't meet the taser. The cop used nonlethal force and he removed a problem.

You guys always want to bash cops. I see nothing wrong with what the cop did. The teacher felt threatened, the cop was assaulted. Stop with the sentimental feelings for the mentally ill. If your 9-year-old ended up assaulted by that loose cannon, then you'd be asking why the cop hadn't taken him away or why the teacher had not done more to remove the problem.

Agreed sylvian. Cop should have shot him dead. Especially if the kid was black.

all i learned from reading this thread is that rodeo thinks kids with autism aren't people and don't deserve access to public schools

Coming from law enforcement the cop did everything he was supposed to do. The decision to handcuff him probably saved the kid from other injuries. Do you think the story would have been worse if the officer tried to tackle him or wrestle him or submit him? Some of these mentally challenged kids out there are strong for real And when your on the job I don't feel like getting hurt while trying to be politically correct. I do think charging him with assault was overboard, but we don't know; he might be a high functioning autistic who knew what he was doing. The whole evil cops thing has no basis.

In the Education thread today you said that you were 24 years old and the Sales Manager for a car dealership.

Now you say that you are a corporate communications manager for AT&T.

Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm.

I do work at a car dealership, But seeing as I just finished my Masters and accepted the At&t job just a couple weeks ago (I havn't started yet I have to go to Atlanta for corprate training in Nov. and I am dreading it) I was using my job at the dealership as an example I earned the job through hard work, and I didn't need a degree to get it and make 100k+ while at the same time finishing my degree.

Hard work pays off those willing to do it will suceed.

I will be happy to send you links in P.M that can prove both.
