involved in this, and- at least in any non-fatal category- I'm falling short.
The boy, who has autism, is accused of battery of a school employee in
Okeechobee County because he kicked a teacher last November. The offense
is a third-degree felony.
Haygood said watching her son be cuffed and put in a law enforcement
vehicle “broke her heart.” She said the 10-year-old boy then spent the
night at a juvenile facility in Fort Pierce, Florida.
Really, asshats? This is the best way you could come up with to deal with this?
The sheriff’s office and prosecutors told WWLP that they weren’t aware the 10-year-old had autism, and the state’s attorney said it will be taken into consideration as they look at the case.
Well, isn't that nice? Howzabout explaining how you made it through these months of investigation without finding out about this?
