Video Captures Police Handcuffing 5-Year-Old Girl

POSTED: 1:17 pm EDT April 22, 2005 UPDATED: 5:15 pm EDT April 22, 2005

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- An attorney says he plans legal action against St. Petersburg police officers who handcuffed an unruly 5-year-old girl after she acted up in her kindergarten class.

St. Petersburg police officers are videotaped putting handcuffs on an unruly 5-year-old girl after she acted up in her kindergarten class.

A video camera, which was rolling March 14 as part of a classroom self-improvement exercise, captured images of the girl tearing papers off a bulletin board, climbing on a table and punching an assistant principal before police were called to Fairmount Park Elementary.

Then it shows the child appearing to calm down before three officers approach, pin her arms behind her back and put on handcuffs as she screamed, "No!"

Largo lawyer John Trevena, who provided the tape to the media this week after obtaining it from police, says the officers went too far.

"The image itself will be seared into people's minds when you have three police officers bending a child over a table and forcibly handcuffing her," said Trevena, who represents the girl's mother, Inga Akins. "It's incomprehensible ... There was no need for that."

The video camera was rolling as part of a classroom self-improvement exercise.

Police declined to comment, citing an official complaint by Akins that has sparked an investigation by the supervisor of the four officers who were present. Two are new officers who were being trained that day.

Spokesman Bill Proffitt said the investigation would be complete in about two weeks and the findings would be made public.

The 30-minute tape shows assistant principal Nicole Dibenedetto trying repeatedly to calm down the girl, who ignores her commands and begins punching her. The child's mother was called but wasn't able to immediately come to the school.

After being placed in the back of a police cruiser, police released the girl to her mother after prosecutors

informed them they wouldn't bring charges against a 5-year-old.

:rofl:

Two friends of mine have now been brutalized by police, one of whom was guilty of a felony and the other of whom was completely innocent. I don't know what has gotten into police officers these days..I think too many of them have the job for the wrong reasons (to abuse their power) and others need significantly more training.

A pathetic situation indeed. :vikki:

Serves her right, the little hooligan! (joking...) I suppose the police thought that a "self-improvement exercise" was equivilent to traumatizing and scaring little kids from being even slightly unruly. Not to say the girl was an angel, but that is going too far.

Well the only way to sort kids like this out is to give them a cherry-red arse. Too bad teachers can't use punishments anymore.
