If you can’t smack a naughty kid, he/she may end up smacking you. Why should they respect adults anyway – adults that don’t care that they grow up as brats that have no regard for authority. Listen to the audio above for some more perspective. The psychologists out there – how do you suggest handling this if the police can’t calm the kid down?

Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die.
Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death. – Proverbs 23:13-14

In Georgia, Salecia was accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing books and toys in an outburst Friday at Creekside Elementary in Milledgeville, a city of about 18,000, some 90 miles from Atlanta, police said. Authorities said she also threw a small shelf that struck the principal in the leg, and jumped on a paper shredder and tried to break a glass frame.

Police refused to say what set off the tantrum. The school called police, and when an officer tried to calm the child in the principal’s office, she resisted, authorities said. She then was handcuffed and taken away in a patrol car.

Baldwin County schools Superintendent Geneva Braziel called the student’s behavior “violent and disruptive.”

“The Milledgeville police department was ultimately called to assist due to safety concerns for the student, other classmates and the school staff,” Braziel said in a statement.

Interim Police Chief Dray Swicord said the department’s policy is to handcuff people when they are taken to the police station, regardless of their age, “for the safety of themselves as well as the officer.” He said the child was restrained with steel cuffs, the only kind the department uses.

He said the girl will not be charged with a crime because she is too young. – Source – The Briefing. Listen to full audio here.
