[quote]Police use stun gun on 6-year-old
Miami, FL, Nov. 12 (UPI) – Police say a 6-year-old Florida boy wasn’t hurt when they shocked him with a 50,000-volt taser to keep him from cutting himself with a piece of glass…
“It just sounds excessive to me to taser gun a 6-year-old when everyone else around there were adults. They couldn’t subdue a 6-year-old? Must have been a pretty big kid,” said retired Broward County Juvenile Judge Frank Orlando.[/quote]

St. Petersburg 5-year-old cuffed after school outburst
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A 5-year-old girl was arrested, cuffed and put in back of a police cruiser after an outburst at school where she threw books and boxes, kicked a teacher in the shins, smashed a candy dish, hit an assistant principal in the stomach and drew on the walls.
The students were counting jelly beans as part of a math exercise at Fairmount Park Elementary School when the little girl began acting silly. That’s when her teacher took away her jelly beans, outraging the child.
Minutes later, the 40-pound girl was in the back of a police cruiser, under arrest for battery. Her hands were bound with plastic ties, her ankles in handcuffs.
“I don’t want to go to jail,” she said moments after her arrest Monday.[/quote]

Hey, they used to say ‘don’t mess with Texas’- Florida leads the way.
I, for one, having taught kindergarten for a dozen years now, would be totally in favour of introducing these progressive methods to Taiwan.
Dennis, in Elephant Class, Tuesdays and Thursdays: you have been given fair warning.
