50. When being oppressed, assaulted or attacked, fear often
looks "evil". It is a way to scare off the oppressor/attacker.

This is about the school's unprofessional reaction and failure to have adequate plans to handle this situation and the illegal action of the police.

Let's say the mother had been killed and could not come to the child, does that make any of the actions of the school less appalling or the cuffing less illegal?

The mother apparently cannot be absolved from blame, but this video is about the school and the police, not the mother.

Again, I have seen these "looks" and they are fear. Some people don't understand as you and I do, some people's brains have circuitry that work differently than ours. Does that entitle us to treat them badly?

As I have posted in the past, does anyone know what caused this child to act out? No, but they continue to label the child "evil" and her behavior "bad" when it could have been defensive or reactionary to what she perceived a threat.
