Kids Arrested For Throwing Skittles

5 posts in this topic

In Jefferson Parish School District, 1,629 students were arrested in one year alone, many for swearing, having a cell phone or a Skittles fight on the bus

[snip] 

Earlier this year, an eighth-grader in Louisiana was riding the bus home after school when he and several other students started throwing Skittles at each other. The bus driver asked the kids to knock it off and continued making stops—he didn’t say another word about the Skittles.

The following day, as the boy was taking a social studies test, a police officer assigned to the school handcuffed him, dragged him out of class and arrested him. He was charged with “interference with an educational facility” and battery.

As the officer led the handcuffed teenager out of the school, both students and faculty heard him threaten to “beat the f*** out of [the boy],” or to have his son, who is about the same age, do it for him. The student, who is African-American, spent six days in a juvenile detention facility before seeing a judge, whose first comment was: “Am I to get this right? Are we really here about Skittles?” [snip]

Criminalise them at an early age.  When they run out of young black men actually committing crimes, start exposing the young ones into the criminal fraternity to get them trained up.

Wow, just wow. What a way to put the boot in.

The policeman allegedly handcuffed him and twisted his arm in front of his classmates, and he was then charged with simple battery. He spent nearly six days inside Rivarde juvenile detention center. The school recorded some of those days as unexcused absences.
