The family of a 6-year-old Georgia girl is upset at police and school officials after the girl was handcuffed and taken to a police station for allegedly throwing furniture, tearing items off the walls and knocking over a shelf, which injured the principal.

"A 6-year-old in kindergarten?" Earnest Johnson, the father of Salecia Johson, asked with disbelief. "They have no business calling the police and handcuffing my child," he told WMAZ-TV.

Police defended their actions during the incident which occurred last Friday at Creekside Elementary School in Milledgeville, Ga.

"Our policy states that any detainee transported to our station in a patrol vehicle is to be handcuffed in the back. There is no age discrimination on that rule," Milledgeville Police Chief Dray Swicord told WMAZ-TV.

The family on Tuesday demanded that the city change its policy, the Associated Press reported, and claimed the girl was shaken up by being put in a holding cell.

The police officer called to the scene later wrote that he "noticed damage to school property and possible assault of other students and staff. I made six attempts to contact her mother via telephone."

"I attempted to calm Johnson down," he wrote in his incident report. "Johnson then pulled away and began actively resisting and fighting with me."

The principal, Dianne Popp, said "a small shelf struck her in the leg while Johnson was throwing items at her," according to the police report, and that the girl "tried several times to get out of the office. Johnson was observed biting the door knob of the office and jumping on the paper shredder and attempted to break a glass frame above the shredder."

Johnson was charged with assault and damage to property, WMAZ-TV reported, but she will not have to go to court because of her age.

Incarcerated childhood


Published: 05 April, 2012, 19:35


They’re not old enough to drive, drink or vote, but in America kids as young as 7 years old can be tried as adults.

“When you hold a youth accountable in the same manner and fashion in which you hold an adult, it's just not right and it's not fair,” says LaShon Beamon of the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.

Michael Kemp knows what it’s like to be a kid locked up in an adult prison.

“You never know what the adults might do to you, and you're just thinking man what's going to happen to me,” says Kemp.

He was locked up for the first time when he was 12-years-old at Oak Hill Juvenile Correctional Facility outside of Washington, D.C.

“Oak Hill it wasn't designed to rehabilitate you, it was designed for punishment. You know having barbed wires around the gate and it's just preparing you for more criminal-type lifestyle,” he says.

Like most kids that serve time as a juvenile in the U.S., he got into trouble again. At 17 he was charged with armed robbery as an adult. He says for a kid, being in an adult prison is a constant struggle to survive.

“They know how it is when you come off the bus and know that you're far away from home, so they pull you in but in reality they're trying to get a favor out of you, a sexual act, and then you get victimized or raped and then you become someone's…person,” he says.

He was spared from sexual abuse, but many kids aren’t so lucky.

In fact, statistics out of the Bureau of Justice show one-in-five victims of sexual violence in jails and prisons are under the age of 18. Youths in adult facilities are 36 times more likely to commit suicide than those in the juvenile system.On any given day in America 10,000 children are held in adult jails and prisons.Most of them have never been convicted of a crime.

Critics slam the practice of putting kids in adult jails as cruel and unusual punishment.

“They are less capable of understanding the consequences of their behavior, their development is incomplete,” says Bart Lubow of the Annie Casey Foundation.

The Supreme Court struck down the death penalty for juveniles in 2005.  But today, the United States is the only country that sentences kids to life without parole.  

“It was viewed as a substitute to the ultimate penalty,” says Lubow.

There are now 2,500 inmates that were sentenced to die in jail as children.

Lubow says, “This is a peculiarly American phenomenon where we tend to believe, the harsher the penalties, the greater the public safety pay-off.”

He says kids should instead be rehabilitated.  That’s the focus at Washington DC’s newly-opened New Beginnings.

Walking into a classroom at New Beginnings is much different than walking into a classroom at other juvenile detention facilities.  It's a system based on rewards, rather than punishment. And experts say the system is muc hmore effective at rehabilitating youth to be productive members of society.

It’s one of the rare places where kids are given a second chance.  But in most prisons throughout the country remain America’s forgotten children… hope for the future gone at an early age.

Are you surprised?

Thier whole history is one here kids have been murdered, raped and abused.

We see that from the moment they infested Native American killing kids, enslaving them and abusing hem.

This behaviour seems to be hard wired in their genes.
