    Let's just wait for all the people to come here and tell us how the COPS over reacted.

    Omfg... the cops are stupid people that have overreacted. Things like this should be legal. The cops should all be fired and the kid should be awarded over $1mil in punitive damages.

    Unless this kid was some sort of body building champion, they should have been able to deal with this kid on their own. Calling the cops was a little excess in my opinion.

    Yes but the way society is going, if we don't take control and teach people what is wrong and right, and stick with scrict punishments, people will be able to blow each other up with explosives and simply get a slap round the wrist for it.

    Especially when people are so young, now is the time to start teaching people what they can and cannot do. IMO good move.

    Not bad. I like this, certainly teachs the kid a lesson.

    I think it was fair for them to call the police on the kid. Just shows the teachers will not take crap from the kids. I do not see anything wrong with it at all.
    I am back....

    If he's going nuts... I don't see any other recourse.

    Though it sounds like a parenting problem not a criminal matter

    I suspect a major consideration for the teachers and principal was, "How do we get this child restrained in a way that doesn't get us sued by the parents?" Calling the police may have seemed like the most sensible choice from that standpoint.

    They probably had to call the cops, schools are afraid to even raise their voices at children for fear of being sued for "abuse", parents are afraid to spank their children for fear of child services treating them like abusive parents, and where are the kids? They're throwing fits at school.

    You know what would have happened had I thrown a fit at school? Corporal punishment, if that didn't solve my problem a quick call to my mom would solve it, because they'd call her, she'd call my dad, and he'd come and pick me up and we'd "go for a ride" either he'd take me home and give me a sound spanking, and ground me, or we'd just head back to wherever he was working and I'd get to do something fun like, move wood from one pile to another or bricks from one pile to another, or shovel dirt, or well, you get the idea. I was disciplined, not abused, not beaten, disciplined, I knew if I took things too far, there were repurcussions and for the most part I tried to stay away fromthose lines I knew not to cross.

    I feel for teachers and principals, they have no power, and are scared to do anything "mean" to kids. Ya know what? Kids are little savages, and sometimes they have to be treated mean to get the idea thru "you gotta quit acting like that", god knows had I known there wouldn't be a severe punishment I'da been a savage with a capital B R A T.

    Ahhh.. It brings warmth to my heart to see what we as the leader of the free world are doing to prevent these young terrorists from growing up throwing tantrums.

    AHHHH!!!!!!! A CRAYON PICTURE OF A ZOMBIE!!!!! TERRORIST!

    AHHHH!!!!!!! A TANTRUM!!!!! TERRORIST!!!!!!!

    Doesn't it just make you beam to know this is happening in your country?

    Oh and on the subject of children where do they get off abolishing the death penalty for children. If this child was executed I'm sure it would bring all those other 8 year old terrorists into line.

    This post was completely sarcastic. What school officials and law enforcement have been doing in this country disgusts me.

    I agree.

    Unfortunately, while most people are reasonable there those that aren't. I've seen parents throw fits when they are told their kid is getting detention, etc.

    This is called "spoiled", and evidently the tantrums work with his parents. This is also the same kind of kid that grows up to disrespect the anthem, not pull over for emergency vehicles, and shoot school bus drivers.
