What are police doing enforcing school rules anyway?

Here in Canada, a teacher would say "you, tuck your shirt in". Assuming he's not cooperating and being mouthy, the very worse worse thing that could happen is the student being expelled and the situation would have to get pretty severe for that to happen. No physical harm would be involved.

So then what.....You must have the "student" in an education class 'round here.

The kid says he was in that school due to learning disabilities from head trauma when he was younger. it's obvious he has the ability to tuck his shirt in. We don't know what words were exchanged between the officer and the kid. Whatever really happened, I feel the officer over reacted.

lulz.

2010 repost? must be a slow news day.
Actually happened on May 18 of 2009. Look at the GAO report.

According to the cops father:
"My son said, 'Sir, you need to tuck your shirt in,' and this boy (cussed at him and said) 'I'm not going to tuck my shirt in, you can't make me,' " Charles Lloyd said.

"That boy struck my son in the eye and broke his glasses -- he had a history of behavior issues," he alleged.
I don't see the kid hitting the cop :confused:


Wow, this guy has some serious issues:
Christopher Lloyd was arrested last month and charged with sexually assaulting a woman he knew at her home in Hammond.
According to Lake County, Ind., court documents, he held a pillow over the woman's face while sexually assaulting her Sept. 14 and had previously threatened her with a knife.

A lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, Nicole McKinney, last summer alleges he gunned down her new husband Cornel McKinney in front of their children outside their home on Feb. 17, 2008.

A Robbins police officer at the time, Lloyd was suspended after the shooting but eventually found work with Dolton police in January, his father said.

Though an autopsy shows he shot McKinney 24 times, the lawsuit alleges, he was not charged because Chicago police accepted his explanation that he had acted in self-defense.

Wait a minute, this "special needs student" can't take direction (tuck in his shirt) but he can conduct a full interview? I think the lesson is, you need to follow the rules.

IMO, this should be how rules are enforced at every high school.

Yep..."Special needs" has gotten too overused...and "special needs" does not and should not equal "special rules."

What the fuck's wrong with you people? Since when does not tucking your shirt in justify a beatdown?! That pig should have had his knees broken, but as is usually the case, absolutely nothing happened. Murder, assault, and rape, and that fat fucker only gets charged with the last crime :^S

Do you always get all worked up over old news? Didja hear? They've been lynching negros in Mississippi? :rolleyes:

No one who you quoted said that they thought what happened was OK...merely that the kid shouldn't be subject to different rules just because he's "special needs."

The student would have to go to another school. If he gets expelled from all schools then it's tough luck, good luck finding a job. Those are usually the type of kids that end up in jail later in life.

In this case it sounded like the student was willing to comply but he did not even get a chance to do it before he was jumped. Here he would have done it, the teacher would of said thanks or something to that effect, and everyone would move on.

I get pretty worked up over police abuses. I don't usually post in SandEagle threads because they piss me off, but I value the service he provides for the community.

The "special needs" subplot of the story is irrelevant, and was only placed there to futilely game the system for justice, which of course never came. The only relevant part of the story is the abuse of power and trust, and the lack of repercussions for the "special class" of people we have in this country.

SpatiallyAware is one of the few racists who is defending the murder of Trayvon Martin in the P&N thread, so it's not surprising he'd agree with such a stupid, most likely racially motivated, post like that.

I hope you have the same outlook when your kid gets his face smashed into a locker for having his shirt untucked.

I'm sure the little fucker deserved it. Kids these days can't even take a beating... pussies.

I know, right? If he's tough enough to walk around with his shirt untucked, he'd better be tough enough to take a locker to the face. :colbert:
