A Florida grandmother is outraged after a 6-year-old was arrested for throwing a ‘tantrum.’
“They told us we had to wait a few minutes because Kaia was being fingerprinted, and when she said fingerprinted it hit me like a ton of bricks. No six-year-old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile center to be fingerprinted, a mug shot.”

The girl’s grandmother, Meralyn Kirkland, said the girl suffers from sleep apnea and was sleep deprived when she threw the tantrum, and shouldn’t have been arrested. She told NBC affiliate WFLA-TV that she was told of the arrest after the fact.
“What do you mean she was arrested, he said ‘there was an incident and she kicked somebody and she is being charged and she is on her way,’” Kirkland told the outlet.
She said police officers were not persuaded by her granddaughter’s medical condition.
“She has a medical condition that we are working on getting resolved and he says, ‘what medical condition, she has a sleep disorder, sleep apnea,’ and he says, ‘well I have sleep apnea and I don’t behave like that,” Kirkland told WFLA.
The outlet reported that Kirkland’s granddaughter Kaia, a first grader at Lucious and Emma Nixon Elementary charter school, was handcuffed and taken to the police station in a squad car to be fingerprinted and have her mug shot taken. More
We can’t arrest illegals, but we cuff, and arrest a 6-year-old girl? Seems a little over the top to me. I believe a call the grandma and suspending the child would have sufficed.
This is exactly what Candace Owens was telling the Democrats in Washington. This was a black child that’s being raised by her grandmother. Where are her mother and father? The breakdown of the family unit has and will continue to cause many problems.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
