11-year-old beaten by school officer over picture

Is this story a sneak preview of what life would be like if we let the Republicans get their foot back in the door? Nope. We're still waiting for the last wave of their fascism and hate to fully recede.

In Dougherty County, Georgia, an 11-year-old girl was beaten mercilessly by a school cop because she delayed having her school picture taken until she could fix her hair. The 6th-grader was thrown to the ground and arrested on an assortment of flimsy charges.

First off, why do we have police in the schools these days? Back in my day, you didn't see cops in schools. America got along fine for centuries without turning schools into fortresses.

Further, since when does a minor breach of a school diktat result in an arrest?

If I was the parent of a child who was treated like this by adults at school, I'd take strong action before even suing the school. I'd march right down to the school and not leave until the adult who assaulted my child was in intensive care.

When you're dealing with evil people, sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. We can't let people assault our children and get away with it.

This is the American school system in 2009, folks. Save your kids from this slaughterhouse.
