Colorado police pepper-spray misbehaving boy, 8
Source: Yahoo

By SHEILA V KUMAR, Associated Press Sheila V Kumar, Associated Press Thu Apr 7, 4:52 am ET
DENVER The staff at the Colorado elementary school said no one could calm 8-year-old Aidan Elliott.

He had just thrown a TV and chairs and was now trying to use a cart to bust through a door to an office where teachers had taken some young students for safety.

They called the police.

The officers found him with a foot-long piece of wood trim with a knife-like point in one hand and a cardboard box in the other.

I'm surprised they didn't just gun him down. And what kind of mother tells her child that he deserves to be pepper-sprayed?

1. I don't agree. I'm glad the mother took the officer's side
though I don't know I'd come right out and say one way or another about the pepper spray she was right to tell him he had to pay the consequences for his actions. Neither of my 8 year old's would have had the guts to to tell an officer "Come get mr fuc***" much less throw tv's and chairs and try to break down doors.
