    Last night I saw about nine cops draw their guns on a woman, a car was blocking my view but I am pretty sure she got taken to the ground in a not so calm manner. It was the best thing I have seen all year. I am sorry, I do not feel bad for people who get their face put in the pavement. This girl five minutes before was hitting the bar window with a car battery.

    Interesting choice of weapons.

    I'd have thought a mere rock would do, but clearly that woman has here own unique window smashing style.

    The cops are out of control these days.

    #1 At one public school down in Texas, a 12-year-old girl named Sarah Bustamantes was recently arrested for spraying herself with perfume.

    #2 A 13-year-old student at a school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently arrested by police for burping in class.

    #3 Another student down in Albuquerque was forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong.

    #4 A security guard at one school in California broke the arm of a 16-year-old girl because she left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning up some cake that she had spilled.

    #5 One teenage couple down in Houston poured milk on each other during a squabble while they were breaking up. Instead of being sent to see the principal, they were arrested and sent to court.

    #6 In early 2010, a 12-year-old girl at a school in Forest Hills, New York was arrested by police and marched out of her school in handcuffs just because she doodled on her desk. "I love my friends Abby and Faith" was what she reportedly scribbled on her desk.

    #7 A 6-year-old girl down in Florida was handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.

    #8 One student down in Texas was reportedly arrested by police for throwing paper airplanes in class.

    #9 A 17-year-old honor student in North Carolina named Ashley Smithwick accidentally took her father's lunch with her to school. It contained a small paring knife which he would use to slice up apples. So what happened to this standout student when the school discovered this? The school suspended her for the rest of the year and the police charged her with a misdemeanor.

    #10 In Allentown, Pennsylvania a 14-year-old girl was tasered in the groin area by a school security officer even though she had put up her hands in the air to surrender.

    #11 Down in Florida, an 11-year-old student was arrested, thrown in jail and charged with a third-degree felony for bringing a plastic butter knife to school.

    #12 Back in 2009, an 8-year-old boy in Massachusetts was sent home from school and was forced to undergo a psychological evaluation because he drew a picture of Jesus on the cross.

    #13 A police officer in San Mateo, California blasted a 7-year-old special education student in the face with pepper spray because he would not quit climbing on the furniture.

    #14 In America today, even 5-year-old children are treated brutally by police. The following is from a recent article that described what happened to one very young student in Stockton, California a while back....

    Earlier this year, a Stockton student was handcuffed with zip ties on his hands and feet, forced to go to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was charged with battery on a police officer. That student was 5 years old.

    #15 At one school in Connecticut, a 17-year-old boy was thrown to the floor and tasered five times because he was yelling at a cafeteria worker.

    #16 A teenager in suburban Dallas was forced to take on a part-time job after being ticketed for using foul language in one high school classroom. The original ticket was for $340, but additional fees have raised the total bill to $637.

    #17 A few months ago, police were called out when a little girl kissed a little boy during a physical education class at an elementary school down in Florida.

    #18 A 6-year-old boy was recently charged with sexual battery for some "inappropriate touching" during a game of tag at one elementary school in the San Francisco area.

    #19 In Massachusetts, police were recently sent out to collect an overdue library book from a 5-year-old girl.

    Did I miss something, or are all these examples involve students and schools? Seems like a clear cut case of schools being totally out of control.

    And cops should not be arresting kids for using perfume even if some idiot teacher says they should.

    Someone has to use their brain around here.

    The background in each incident is missing. Making a judgment "the cops are out of control" is absurd based on the few facts presented.

    Citizens are placed in handcuffs for the protection of others and the person detained.

    The control of schools was lost when they outlawed corporal punishment. The mere threat of that piece of wood ....

    I don't know. I took corporal punishment as a contest between me and the person administering the beatings.

    I would always try to prove I could take more than they could dish out.

    It always amazes me that people say cops can do no wrong. Get real. There are bad cops too. Most are decent people but sometimes the stress can get to them and sometimes they become desensitized that they are dealing with people who may be innocent. And sometimes the system (good old buddy system) steps in.
