handcuffs for kindergarden

in a sort of follow-up to this, we have another interesting police-tactics video to consider.

Video: Police Handcuffed 5-Year-Old Girl [ap via abc news, april 23, 2005]

A 5-year-old girl was handcuffed by police after she tore papers off a bulletin board and punched an assistant principal in kindergarten class, according to a video released by a lawyer for the child’s mother.

The 30-minute tape shows the child appearing to calm down before three officers pinned her arms behind her back and put on handcuffs as she screamed, “No!”

i haven’t seen the video, but you have to wonder how much of a threat a kindergardener really poses these days – they probably don’t even have scissors in the classrooms anymore or they wouldn’t be able to get insurance.

the growing menace of cows

this is just a quick one, from wisconsin…

Hopping Holstein shuts down cow pie bingo [lacrosse tribune, april 21, 2005]

Dorothy Jasperson, editor of the Westby Times, said the cow “knocked down some stuff, scared some little kids and for insurance reasons, they decided to go away from cow pie bingo.” (There was a time when Westby children were not afraid of a wandering cow, though these may have been children visiting from La Crosse.)

no insurance, no play.

wow. it really has come to this?
