School officials at Carver Elementary the city’s far South Side are accused of authorizing campus cops to remove "disruptive" first-graders in handcuffs. In a suit filed by the child's parents, it's alleged that security cops removed the students from class and held them in another office on campus where there were no other adults present. One child's attorney, Michael Carin, claims that students accused of talking in class, were handcuffed for hours and told that “they were going to prison and would never see their parents again.”
“There appears to be no reason for an officer to isolate 6- and 7-year-old children, place them in handcuffs and threaten them for hours during a school day, or any other day,” said Carin. -- Chicago Tribune.
