Would that these were the last words on this notorious subject – that of the videotaped 5-year-old girl who was handcuffed by St. Petersburg Police.
St. Pete Police Chief Chuck Harmon is right. His officers shouldn’t be called in to discipline a 5-year-old.
And the Fairmount Park Elementary School staff deserved better. It’s their job to teach – and discipline. But not to civilize.
