5 Year Old ‘Taught a Lesson’ by Cops

Sometimes I can’t even wrap my brain around how insane this country has become..!

“In Mississippi, if kindergarteners violates the dress code or act out in class, they may end up in the back of a police car.

A story about one 5-year-old particularly stands out. The little boy was required to wear black shoes to school. Because he didn’t have black shoes, his mom used a marker to cover up his white and red sneakers. A bit of red and white was still noticeable, so the child was taken home by the cops.

The child was escorted out of school so he and his mother would be taught a lesson…”

    amerikkkan schoolz have alwayz were and will be trainibg groundz 4 normality. If u don’t fit in then u become labeled a problem child. The PIC is about making noney and they need bodiez and do not care the age or the inmate. Thus begun the school to prison pipeline

    • And the pipeline is getting wider every damned day. Between your posts and other stories I’ve seen lately, I’ve decided I have no excuse for sitting on the sidelines anymore…I’m jumping back into the mix to fight this…insanity. New blog just for prison issues is gonna be up in a couple of days. This all must STOP before so many get sucked in and spit out that there isn’t a free non-criminal citizen left here.

  2. These stories are the very ones that make me write what I write. Oh humanity what will it take??????

    • A piece of my heart just broke when I imagined the shame this poor child must’ve felt; to realize that no one at the school offered to help…and chose instead to punish an innocent.

    So disgusting, What are children to do anymore, can’t play outside for fear of kidnapping, can’t express themselves without being called names, and now being sent to jail for the wrong color shoes. How are these children to grow mentally? Or, is that what the end goal really is – keep them uninformed and ignorant.

    • I’ve read so many stories concerning kids over the past 3 or 4 years that absolutely leave me stuttering and sputtering…the mom who got charged for allowing her children to ride their bikes in a cul-de-sac; a teen whose shot at West Point was destroyed when the school charged him with assault…for shooting spit wads. It just seems to go on and on and it is now to the point that penalizing kids for being kids is the rule and no longer just odd stories from here and there. Whatever the point, purpose or goal is…I don’t think I much like it.
