Policeman Arrests Ill Five-Year-Old Michael Davis At School And Takes Him Handcuffed To A Psychiatric Hospital
TO California, in The Land of the Free, where five-year-old Michael Davis has been handcuffed by police and charged with battery. His crime is to have allegedly kicked a police officer in the knee during a meeting at his primary school.
Young Michael has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Teachers thought it a good idea to defer his discipline to a school police officer, one Lieutenant Frank Gordo. The cop’s presence would instil fear in young Michael and shake out of his illness.
But things went awry. The police report says Lt Gordo put his hand on Michael’s and “the boy pushed my hand away in a batting motion, pushed papers off the table, and kicked me in the right knee“.
Anorak has one word: good.
Strange adults touching kidzzzz is wrong. It’s a wonder the copper has not been brought up on a change of alleged molestation.
And then having touched young Michael and been righteously booted in the knee, allegedly, the caring copper tied the five-year-old’s hands and feet with zip ties of the sort used to restrain violence criminals. Lt Gordo drove Michael in the back of his police car to Stockton Kaiser Psychiatric Hospital for an evaluation.
David’s mother, Thelma, claims she “was led to believe that Michael saw a police officer and attacked a police officer on sight“. She only learned of the touching, handcuffing and trip to the head doctor several weeks later after reading the report. One charge of battery on a police officer has now been dropped by a juvenile court.
The copper and school are free to continue their nurturing…
