Dillon The Kid Captured Alive!

Dillon is seven years old and has been classified as autistic. Those who work with such children understand they have difficulty when encountering strangers and do not like to be physically restrained. Dillon is simply a typical seven year old boy who ordinarily plays like a seven year old, eats like a seven year old and wants to be liked like a seven year old. He was in the lunchroom having his mid day meal when Dillon got into an argument with another boy. No one knows exactly how their argument began, but if one has been around small children, this is typical. An aide attempted to end the dispute, but Dillon became upset and began to scream. The aide summoned other teachers, and through their combined force, Dillon was subdued and placed in a room. Police were summoned since the teachers feared the seven year old boy might break loose. Police arrived, placed handcuffs on Dillon and hauled the young criminal off to jail.

Such is life in the world of education that has been impacted by such events as passage of the No Child Left Behind idiocy. How can anyone who has worked with small children understand how or why police were summoned to handcuff a seven year old child?

Where have all the children gone
Long time passing
Where have all the children gone,
Long time ago.

Where have all the children gone
Long time passing
Gone to jails, everyone
Saving America from
terrorism,
Long time ago.

    This is absolutely disgusting behaviour on the part of teachers. Being forced to sit still, learn Latin, say the Pledge of Allegiance and being made to feel bad when you behave badly is not abuse; being labelled a dangerous, incarceration-needing thug and arrested as an autistic 7-year old IS!
