Oh, my. That is a ridiculous case. However, it being Texas, I'm not really surprised by the injustice.
I have not and I don't have a chicago tribune subscription. Darn. :( Want to give me a quick little run down?

That is just absurd! I can understand doing that to older kids, but a kindergarten age kid? WTF?
I've not been arrested yet. However, I might be tempted to just beat the snot out of someone one day. Who knows? ;)
Haha! I've never been arrested, either. I was hoping someone would have a good arrest story here. ;)
Any cop that arrests a five year old from school should be suspended and sent back through for retraining, if not being fired on the spot. What kind of lesson does that teach this kid? I seriously doubt she is going to think of her local police as her "friend" from now on.
Unless that kid was waving a gun, knife, or chainsaw, I can't think of any reason on this planet why that would be appropriate.
I could not agree with you more.
How is that even possible? Some people are just silly. Maybe put her in timeout or something but jail?? Gah, it isn't like she understood she was resisting arrest or any of the other stuff.
Exactly!!! Complete abuse of power.
LOL! Really!?! Story!!! Please, hubby? :)
I was a klepto when i was younger, and got arrested for shoplifting when i was 15. The law of some kind said that what you had to pay the store was the value of whatever you stole, times ten, but it couldn't be more than 200$. What i had on me was worth more. Haha.
The guy actually congradulated me on being hard to catch... They'd been trying for three months. Heh.. i'm sneaky.
lol! Nice! It wasn't actually an arrest though, right? Just store security?
Store-security-arrest. Heh. I had to go to court and everything, but no handcuffs/jail.
lol! Aww! I bet that was scary. Were your parents PISSED?
My mother was... my daddy was "disappointed".
I think it's stupid and ridiculous but I don't think it's retarded. I don't find anything related to downs syndrome or spina bifida in this article...
Sorry, I'm really sensitive about that kind of terminology used in this way.
i'm sorry... i really didn't mean to offend you in any way.
I know that. I'm sorry I was a little nasty. I just reeeally get upset about that. Cooled down now. ;)
