In his defense, it is school milk:

A 12-year-old attendee of Ben Franklin Middle School in Valparaiso, Indiana dropped some milk this past Thursday. He refused to clean it up. The boy then refused to sit down and wait for other students to leave so that the lunch attendant could deal with him individually.

Instead, he got up and began to run around the school, and did not want to listen. So the school called the police. When the police caught him, he "attempted to get away," so they handcuffed him.

Meh. He was running and I'm sure he would have ran again the second a cop let go of him. The handcuffs are fine IMO. If he was pepper sprayed like that douche bag a few weeks ago pepper spraying the squirrel, then that's a problem.

To be honest, that kid sounds like a little attention whore.

Eh. Restraining the kid kept him from being crazier. Pepper spray would have been bad.


And I bet if the school did anything like that everyone would be down their throat suing them. It's sad that we have to call the police on a sixth grader.

The kid sounds like a dick, but the cops? Really? When a kid is running around the school they call the cops? Was he running around the school with a 6 inch blade? Send that kid to the principle and have him suspended. It did make a funny story though.

back when I was young teachers knew how to handle kids without having to call law enforcement authorities. I find it very disturbing to know that suing soccer moms have driven teachers to the point where they have to take police officers off of their circuits in order to keep children in line at elementary school.

Shit's whack, yo.

Exactly. I think you got right to the point about the suing thing too, it's not like the teachers were running around like headless chickens like 'HE SPILT HIS MILK, HE'S OUT OF CONTROL', it's more like if they restrained him they could lose their jobs and never be able to teach again so they had to call someone else in to do it. I wouldn't take that risk if someone was being a gobby little brat to me.

Thread title gave me a vision of officers tackling a little kid in terror after knocking milk off the table. Lols ensued.

Yea, I would have got sent to the principal and possibly paddled. I was a ****ing crazy kid and got it a few times. Now I'm pretty chilled out.

And a few years after I left elementary they had to send home permission slips to read Harry Potter in class. The teacher that inspired my love of reading could barely read the material that inspired tons of kids before because of asshole parents.

You guys have to stop posting your school experiences, it makes me really sad for you. You actually got abused by your headteacher? That's awful Is corporal punishment not illegal in America yet?

And the book thing is just pathetic. Permission slips, wtf. The US needs to get its act together.

No, you get smacked by your parents.

To be fair, Germany supports more intelligent kids as much as a bad sports bra supports tits hanging down to the ground. The American education system in the 90's was bad, yes, but the European system isn't without flaws either.

EDIt: to clarify, in the US, teachers actually debated about wether or not to allow me to skip a grade, and I was offered a bunch of special classes since my reading ability was far beyond my age level.

In germany, they skipped me a grade when I was 15, and when I was having problems, they basically said "though shit, either pull your balls together or repeat the year".

This only happened because teachers don't have the ability to properly handle the situation. Teachers these days can get fired for merely touching a kid. Imagine if they had to restrain them, too.

I don't know if it is or not. Honestly, it's not that bad. It's not like they were throwing us around the room or anything. Max of three swats and there had to be witnesses to make sure nothing nothing went amiss. I was a ticking time bomb as a child. I would snap and ****ing charge people swinging, scratching and swinging. Sometimes there was a reason, sometimes there wasn't much. When someone was bullying me, there was non corporal punishment for both parties. When I attacked a classmate unprovoked, there was corporal punishment and it worked. It may not be used now since I was in elementary like 8 years ago.

And the book thing is ****ing ridiculous. It's the religious wackjobs who thought it was evil and freaked out when their kids were having it read to them in class.

If you saw how the kids in elementary school act, you'd probably be tempted to smack them. I hear some ridiculous shit. For as long as I can remember it wasn't mandatory, the parent could specify if they didn't want corporal punishment applied. I'm very anti-violence and a very passive person but I don't see any negative effects from having corporal punishment applied to me. It's very cause and effect oriented and worked for me. I don't necessarily support it but it worked in my case and I stayed out of trouble from middle school on.

EDIT: And a lot of it stems from the education system sucking and how a lot of kids are raised. Parents get so ****ing arrogant that they let their kids do whatever they want and the school has to deal with it.

It's a problem with parenting, not with the schools themselves. Teachers do what they can.

And no, corporal punishment is pretty much NEVER used in the U.S. Though I'd be fine with it if it was.

The Europe>U.S. arrogance on UG is infuriating at times, I don't look forward to being treated like an ignorant dumbass when I go to Europe in the summer.
