Police arrest 6-year-old girl
Further proof that the system to instill discipline in the US is wrong.

This morning I received an email from Change.org to sign a petition demanding to remove the arrest of a child from her record.

At first, I thought it may be a child who set up a fire or maybe killed someone, such crazy things sometimes happen here.... but then I said to myself, wait a minute, this petition is coming from Change.org .... And let me tell you, is crazier than I thought ...

This is the story:

Salecia Johnson is six years old. On April 13, her teachers say she had a temper tantrum in class -- but instead of putting her in time-out, the school called the police.

Salecia was handcuffed, charged with battery, and kept in police custody for an hour before her parents found out what was going on. Though all charges have been dropped, Salecia -- a 6-year-old -- now has an arrest record.

Use the police to control the behavior of a child!!!!.... Oooooh US I think you're going the wrong way ...

PS.: I fully understand that many times teachers and principals have their hands tied, but I disagree with the use of the police.
