Early this year, Lt. Frank Gordon, a police officer in Stockton, California, met with Michael, a 5 year old with ADHD, whose behavior was disruptive at the Rio Calaveras Elementary School. In the attempt to address Michael’s behavioral problems, Lt. Gordon spoke with the child regarding his actions and after placing a hand on Michael, the situation quickly escalated. Michael responded by acting out, pushing the officer away, knocking papers to the floor, and kicking the officer. Gordon then used zip ties on Michael’s wrists and ankles and transported him to the Stockton Kaiser Psychiatric Hospital citing battery charges. The child was later picked up by a parent and is mostly OK but certainly reminds us all to seriously question what is going on in the U.S. Here’s the rest of the story with Police Hand-and-Ankle-Cuff 5 Year Old, Charge Him With Battery On A Police Officer.
