    A more enterprising officer might have grabbed some duct tape.

    Those zip-ties are one size fits all.

    The school seems at least as much to blame as the police. They called for the child to be arrested.

    I'd be interested in exploring the degree of the private, for-profit prison system in Florida. Smaller inmates take up less space and consume less food, but probably generate the same revenue from the state...

    They could also be used for new labour venues, like weaving carpets.

    The entire thing is to test the awareness of Americans repeating history younger than a century.

    When Americans watched and apologized for it happening to undesirable/minority Americans, it opened the door for this to happen to all Americans.

    It is going to increase, and happen to people who "matter" now - because we allowed it with our ignorance of history and failure to truly love and care. You will see a few every other quarter, then every month, then people will just know the police force as a force that executes judgment first.

    We can't help but to beg for our demise because of our greenness as a nation, and our lack of existing as a "nation of people, together". There are several older empires that are taking advantage of this; we do everything we can (by acting predictably) to help them exploit us.

    'His mother fought the case in court for nine months until a prosecutor dismissed the charges.'

    Seriously? You call the mum, you suspend the child.

    Get "resource officers" out of schools. Just their presence turns simple behavioral and discipline issues into crimes.

    I think you have to be accurate about who did this. There is no US police involved only the Key West police.

    The Key West police are not the US police. There is no US police force that was present in Key West trying to deal with a violent 8 year old. Would you blame EU police if the Paris police botched something?
