1st Grader Handcuffed After Easter Egg Tantrum

Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott on Thursday promised an investigation into the handcuffing of a 7-year-old boy at his school, but said restraining young children may sometimes be necessary.

"There are occasions when it may need to be done, and I think it's the responsibility of the principal and school safety to work together to make that determination," Walcott told the Daily News Thursday.

Walcott spoke on the phone Thursday with the mother of Joseph Anderson, the special-education first-grader who was handcuffed after he became upset while decorating an Easter egg at his school on April 13.

Jessica Anderson tells the Daily News that Joseph was taken in cuffs to the hospital even though she told the school she was on her way to get him. She says the boy was upset and kept asking for "Mommy."

"Why handcuff him?" Anderson asked the paper. "Why get the cops involved? He's only 7."

"They know that my son is special ed. It's like they're trying to get rid of him, and it worked, because I'm not sending him back there," she added.

After speaking with Walcott, Anderson told the Daily News that the chancellor seemed to be more concerned about her son "not being in that school," and that he did not inquire about her son's well-being after the incident.

The boy told the News he wanted an apology. "I want those cops to say sorry to me and the principal for calling the ambulance on me and handcuffing me," said Joseph, described as a "soft-spoken first grader."

His mother has said she wants the principal removed from the school, P.S. 153 in Maspeth, Queens, but Walcott said no one would lose their job over the incident, the News reports.

Instead, he is promising to investigate what happened and make sure he was "satisfied with the answer."

Re: 1st Grader Handcuffed After Easter Egg Tantrum

these kinda things piss me off, the only reason people get pushed to these kind of situations is because society over protects kids and you cant do fucking anything anymore.

if they smack the kid, they'd get sued for beating the kid.

if they restrain and hold the kid with their hands, they'd get sued for molesting it

on the one hand putting cuffs on the kid is harsh. but it protects the adults involved from the bullshit over protective laws that are in place to help parents sue and become rich

Re: 1st Grader Handcuffed After Easter Egg Tantrum

My daughter is special needs and when she starts school I have to sign waivers stating that if she needs to be restrained, I allow it. Plus the rooms are two sided. If she throws a tantrum, they remove what ever started the tantrum and take all the other kids to the other room until she calms down. If that still doesn't help, they have a room that she will go too that is designed to help her calm down (low lights, soothing music, etc.) All of the teachers are also trained and degreed in special needs kids.

I wonder if he was in that special ed class getting some extra help with reading or writing or something like that and now she thinks he falls under a 504.

Anyway, moral of my story is that parents with kids of special needs know before the kid ever starts school that there is a possibility of them being restrained.

When I was a youngin, if I misbehaved i got the belt. If i did something fishing pole worthy, i got the good ol' fishin pole. I turned out alright, i know right from wrong... All the spankins taught me not to misbehave. Nowadays, parents want to play "counting games" with their kids, OH NOES!!! Mommy's gunna count to three if I'm bad! "Stop it right now! ONE,...... TWO,..... THREE!!" Yeah, that teaches em a whole hell of a lot... "My mommy counts to three faster than your mommy does!" And this "time-out" bullshit? WTF does that teach a kid? "Go sit on the couch, you cant get up until you say sorry and give me a big hug."... Bullshit, make em pick their switch, bend em over your knee and whip them little fuckers ass when they need it!
