Land of the Free?. Uncle Sam's Misguided Children - Police state madness - more and more children being arrested for trivial things - things we all got up to as

Uncle Sam's Misguided Children - Police state madness - more and more children being arrested for trivial things - things we all got up to as kids:

#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.

the list goes on.....

I would like to point out that O.P. has, for some reason, forgot to mention that the child in the picture is being arrested because he stabbed his sister to death. Just saying.
User avatar #134 to #36 - poiklman (05/18/2013) [-]
Exactly, he's not even free to kill his sister. Thanks Obama.
User avatar #55 - TheOriginalNerd ONLINE (05/18/2013) [-]
im just going to call gigantic ********

there are no sources

also the kid in the picture STABBED HIS SISTER TO DEATH, I JUST READ THE ******* ARTICLE
#138 to #55 - jonlajoieismylife (05/18/2013) [-]
Do you happen to have a link to the article?
User avatar #56 to #55 - konradkurze (05/18/2013) [-]
yeah the kid in the pic did an actual crime,
but a pic of a kid in handcuffs does help support the argument of USA being a police state
User avatar #57 to #56 - TheOriginalNerd ONLINE (05/18/2013) [-]
idk, even though hes a kid, if hes mentally unstable enough to murder his own sister, i would want him in cuffs
User avatar #58 to #57 - konradkurze (05/18/2013) [-]
well i fully agree that anyone who commits an actual crime deserves to be punished, but all these arrests made over ******** is the problem

its like its too hard for police to catch all the real bad guys so they just arrest anyone over anything to up the count of arrests made
User avatar #59 to #58 - TheOriginalNerd ONLINE (05/18/2013) [-]
its not like they have quotas or something

why would the police want to find ******** reasons to arrest people

more arrests = more people in jails using state resources = more taxes

last time i checked, policemen still pay taxes, and who wants that
User avatar #60 to #59 - konradkurze (05/18/2013) [-]
not everything results in jail, some crimes just end up with either community service, essentially people working for free, thus saving money from having to pay people to do those tasks, or fines, which directly makes money
either way, not officially taxes but still saving or making money out of the people

police do have quotas they just cant admit it, hence why they hope things they attend to do escalate enough for them to make arrests, or they try to direct things towards escalating it, i have personally seen cops digging at people til someone gets angry enough to be arrested for violent behaviour
#103 to #60 - John Cena (05/18/2013) [-]
please tell us how all of the police of the entire country operate without actually known any of them. Police have one main duty, protect the general public at all costs. They die every day protecting us and all you can think to do is makeup or exaggerate events when they're just doing their job. i hear fox news is in need of little cock suckers like you.
#194 to #103 - John Cena (05/18/2013) [-]
Actually, the Mayor of New York city stated recently that it was not the responsibility of the police force to protect the citizenry, but rather to enforce laws, and take action if necessary.
User avatar #214 to #103 - konradkurze (05/18/2013) [-]
police do not exist to protect people, they exist to enforce laws

hell ive seen plenty of times where people are harming each other and police dont bother to turn up,....

one case for example.....i see 3 guys pretty much dropkicking a 4th down the street,...police tell me they dont have anyone free to come assist......but an hour later i see 2 homeless guys sitting at a bus stop sharing a bottle of wine....2 police cars come screeching up and they get arrested

GO POLICE....love your ******* priorities
#211 to #59 - John Cena (05/18/2013) [-]
Police DO have quotas but police don't want to say anything because they want people to believe that they have no good reason to make these arrests when really funding for police is determined by which precinct makes the most arrests because the higher-ups give more funding to the precinct they think needs it more than others

tlr Police do this because they want better stuff where they work

"#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"

Are we sure he didn't get the money after the stripping?

User avatar #159 - redrex (05/18/2013) [-]
yeah, unless you give me evidence of all these, i'm calling ******** on all of it
User avatar #113 - Milvath (05/18/2013) [-]

User avatar #131 to #113 - pedobearRAW (05/18/2013) [-]

Can I see the sources for any of these...

The items in this list are either taken so hugely out of context, or are just not true at all.
Either way, OP is a ******* moron and scummy human being.
#99 - herptyderpderp (05/18/2013) [-]
Anyone else think of this kid?
User avatar #185 - ffx (05/18/2013) [-]
Unless you give me some links and citations, I'm going to say it's all ******** .
User avatar #201 to #185 - sealofapproval (05/18/2013) [-]
even if they are true most of these are probably incredibly far out of context
#53 - Carthusia (05/18/2013) [-]
Some of these stories are either highly exaggerated or complete fabrications.
#100 to #53 - beerholder (05/18/2013) [-]
or just selective information from the whole context just to make it more dramatic...

At least in Sweden.

They're a huge problem in England, they treat us whites like **** . At least in low income areas like mine.
User avatar #162 - iamcanadian (05/18/2013) [-]
In 2007, i believe, A 6 year old in Connecticut found $5 on the ground and took it. He showed this to his friend. A girl saw this and told the teacher. The teacher actually called the cops. When the cops got to the elementary school, they handcuffed the 6 year old, interrogation the child for 7 hours and then arrested him for theft.
I wish i was joking.

Oh yea, and the kid was black too.

The description is off an article titled, "19 Crazy Things That School Children Are Being Arrested For In America"

From a website called, "end of the american dream"

Sounds legit ass **** *****

I once drew a huge dick on the chalk board with my teachers name on it and no one found out

"freedom"

Un a related note, someone once told me "The true free man is no lord, and no slave. Whilst the falsely free man will shackle another to prove his freedom"
User avatar #84 to #14 - splendiddust ONLINE (05/18/2013) [-]
To me freedom is to do what we want. so if we were put on an island and told we could do whatever we wanted, we would probably revert to savagry.
#178 - oxYKellark (05/18/2013) [-]
The one thing i hate more than corrupt politicians, liars and scandals are the ******* retarded conspiracy theorists or hippie jerkoffs who label all police as bad guys or the arrest of one man or in this case kid as the justification for a so called "police state".
User avatar #180 to #178 - flemsdfer (05/18/2013) [-]
I label police as bad guys simply because they have more rights than the average person. It's not right that anyone has more rights than another.
#217 to #180 - John Cena (05/18/2013) [-]
Never blame someone because they "have more rights than you", blame someone because they abuse more rights than you
User avatar #219 to #217 - flemsdfer (05/18/2013) [-]
I don't think they should have the extra rights to abuse in the first place. I checked out the first one and a CHILD arrested for squirting herself with perfume? Could you just take a child for that reason and lock them up and throw them in your car? No. Why can they do it? Why can they kick in doors without a warrant and the most they get is a slap on the wrist while anyone else may just have well been shot? Just things like this piss me off how police abuse their power over the public and I don't think they need to exist and we just take care of our own problems. Police are just people with a piece of metal on their chest and a gun. All it is, is a person. Not some higher being that knows best, and it's easy for a normal person to see all the **** that they do and get a skewed vision of everything. Then it's more "us and them" rather than protecting the public and you get an asshole. An asshole with a gun, and whose word trumps yours. That's a scarier thought to me than having no police and we just live as towns.
User avatar #207 to #180 - Jewssassin (05/18/2013) [-]
They dont actually have more rights.
The only reason you think that is because all Police have to be part of the F.O.P., which is pretty much a union made up of only Police Officers. When one Officer commits a misdemeanor, or really anything except a felony, they use as much resources as they can to make sure they get off free.
User avatar #209 to #207 - flemsdfer (05/18/2013) [-]
Always heard the police are the best gang you can get into.
#198 to #180 - oxYKellark (05/18/2013) [-]
"more rights"
Please explain.
User avatar #206 to #198 - flemsdfer (05/18/2013) [-]
Any situation where a person would be wrong for doing something, but if it was a cop doing said thing, it's okay. I've seen all kinds of bad and illegal things police do, and they don't get prosecuted. They'll get suspended with pay a lot of times if anything even happens over it.
