Police chief says 'standard operating procedures were followed' in case where 8-year-old boy with special needs was handcuffed and briefly jailed for battery

KEY WEST, FLA. -- Civil rights lawyers sued the police and school district in Key West on Tuesday over their treatment of an 8-year-old boy with special needs who was handcuffed, booked and briefly jailed on a felony battery charge after he was accused of punching a teacher who sought to discipline him for sitting improperly in the school cafeteria.

"Where is the decency? Where is the humanity? This is somebody's child," Crump said at an online news conference with the boy's mother, Bianca N. Digennaro. Crump has a growing list of clients alleging police abuse, including the family of George Floyd, the Black man who died at the hands of a Minneapolis officer in May.

Put the officer in handcuffs and repeat after me: 'this is very serious, OK? I hate that you had to put me into this position to do this. The thing about it is, you made a mistake. Now it's time for you to learn about it and to grow from it, not repeat the same mistake again,'

Police State Power!
