Family seeking legal action after bodycam video shows alarming arrest of 8-year-old boy

The family of an 8-year-old boy who was put into handcuffs at an elementary school in Key West, Florida, back in 2018 is planning on filing a lawsuit after bodycam video of the alarming arrest was recently made public.

Attorney Ben Crump, who is now representing the family, shared the video Sunday on his Twitter account, writing:

“Unbelievable!! @KWPOLICE used “scared straight” tactics on 8yo boy with special needs. He’s 3.5 ft tall and 64 lbs, but they thought it was appropriate to handcuff and transport him to an adult prison for processing!! He was so small the cuffs fell off his wrists!”

Officers responded to the school on Dec. 14, 2018 after police say the boy punched his teacher in the chest.

It's safe to say that they probably endured this as children - and merely saw this incident as an opportunity to act it out on someone else.

Someone who (goes without saying) can't hit back in any way.

Nice.
