If you thought it was strange when West Van Chief Peter Lepine, the ‘independent’ review officer, commended RCMP after they Tasered an 11-year-old Prince George boy while arresting him last April, how about this story from Stockton CA:
Michael is diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD. He is said to be energetic, full of energy but a comedian and a loving child.
Discipline problems resulted in teachers trying to change his behavior by having the boy meet with a school police officer, a ‘scared-straight’ initiative.
The meeting went poorly and ended with the boy arrested, cuffed hand and foot, transported to the Stockton Kaiser Psychiatric Hospital in the back of a squad car and cited for battery on a police officer.
Michael is five years old.
