8-Year-Old Girl Handcuffed And Jailed For 2 Hours After Tantrum At School

An 8-year-old girl was handcuffed and held by Alton Police for two hours after throwing a tantrum at school.

Jmyha Rickman was hauled in the back of a police squad car. Her guardian said she was treated like a criminal, all 70 lbs. of the young girl.
Rickman’s ordeal began at Love Joy Elementary School late Tuesday morning when she apparently had a bad tantrum.

At some point, school officials called the Alton Police to handle the situation.

Rickman said her hands were cuffed behind her back and the police would not allow her to get her coat.

“Her eyes were swollen from her crying and her wrists had welts on them,” said Rickman’s guardian, “They cuffed her feet too and she asked to use the restroom several times and was ignored.”
Alton Police have disputed some of the family’s claims and said the child was put in a juvenile detention room with supervision.

Police said they received a call from the school and said a child was out of control, tearing up two classrooms.

The police officer believes he took appropriate action.

This is out of control. What would you do if your school-aged child came home and told you he/she had spent two hours in jail wearing handcuffs for acting up at school?
