This is fucking disgusting. They did this to a goddamn kindergartener. Trigger warnings for police racism in the link, btw.
there’s a petition: http://www.blackyouthproject.com/2012/04/sign-a-petition-for-salecia-johnson-six-year-old-arrested-for-throwing-a-tantrum-at-school/
Reblargling for the petition
And of course there’s a gross white chick in the comments who has to do everything she possibly can to try and make it seem like people are just ‘trying’ to make it ‘all about race’ because if this child was WHITE then the parents wouldn’t be making it about race!
Ignoring, of course, the fact that THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO A WHITE CHILD. (Unless that child was diagnosed as autistic, then maybe, because god knows autistic people get treated like utter shit.) Fact remains, though. A six year old child should never have been arrested or handcuffed. EVER.
Even us white autistics generally only get restrained by people from the school, though. Bringing the police in, especially as a first measure, is a special kind of racist fuckery.
