Given everything we know about Florida Man, I think it’s fair to say that law enforcement in the Sunshine State have their hands full. It’s a lawless swamp land out there, and sometimes things can get out of hand.
Here’s an example of, well, not that.
A six year old girl was arrested, like, actually cuffed and taken to the station for fingerprints and a mug shot, in an Orlando school. Her offense? A sleep deprivation-induced temper tantrum. Her grandmother, Meralyn Kirkland, explained that her granddaughter was sent to the principal’s office after acting out in class.
Kirkland told WKMG-TV that while there, a school staff employee grabbed Kaia’s wrists, sparking her to lash out and kick her legs. The school resource officer — Officer Dennis Turner, of the Orlando Police Department — handcuffed Kaia and transported her to the Juvenile Assessment Center in Orlando on a battery charge.
Uhh. . . What?
