Pinellas pinheads strike again

I remember when even the most severe case of the huffy puffies only got you a trip to the principal’s office.
::: HI Mr. Fischer!!! :::

But these days?
Well, let’s just say they do it a little differently now …
… at least in Pinellas County, Florida!
::: You can always count on Flaaaahriduh! :::

tantrumLast week, a kid in Largo had what I have to assume was just THE most stupendously colossal conniption in the history of all conniption fits ever because — instead of making him kick it old school in the corner for the day or write ‘I will not invoke the name of Satan and wish death to rain from the skies’ 1,000 times on the blackboard — his drama queen teachers pulled the ‘bitchass kid is crazy‘ card and had his adolescent ass locked the fuck UP!

Ayep — they Baker Acted a second grader.

Authorities say the 7-year-old boy threw a tantrum so Titanic that his classroom had to be evacuated.
::: Really?!? Do tell!! :::

The child allegedly:
Stepped on a teacher’s foot
::: awwww, someone gots a owchie! :::
Tore up the room
::: NOT gold-star behavior, Johnny! :::
And “battered” a school administrator
::: Oooo, now that one does sound serious! :::

That can’t be right — can it?!?

I mean how, exactly, does a 7-year-old ‘batter’ an adult?
They weigh, what? About 55 pounds at that age?
That’s a bag of sweet feed, the big Bil Jac or a few gallons of water, right?
What adult can’t hoist that shit over one shoulder and carry the tempestuous little tadpole straight to the timeout room?

Ooooo — I KNOW! I KNOW!!

Ones who enjoy scaring the crappy cafeteria lunch out of the rest of the class?!?!?
DING DING DING – I think we have a winner!!!
::: Do not FUCK with Mr. Stempley, brats! That dick will put your little snotnosed ass aWAY!! :::

In case you didn’t know …
The Baker Act allows people [7-year-olds] to be taken for mental health examination against their [7-year-old] will. But it requires a [7-year-old] person show a substantial likelihood of causing serious injury to himself or others. Absent that, police cannot use the Baker Act to take [7-year-olds] someone into custody against their [7-year-old] will, even if they think the [7-year-old] person needs help.

Largo deputy police Chief John Carroll said putting Junior in lockdown was the right thing because “This was not the first time the boy had acted up.”
::: Wait. I’m confused … did he act up or did he throw the mother of all way super deadly dangerous tantrums?!? ‘Cuz there’s, like, a really, Really, REALLY huge difference between the two … IJS …:::

“That’s not the purpose of the Baker Act at all,” Raine Johns, who handles Baker Act cases for two Florida counties but  is not involved in this case. “Stepping on somebody’s foot doesn’t rise to the level of substantial bodily harm.”
::: Well someone had his daily allowance of common sense for breakfast! :::

The boy spent a night at Morton Plant Hospital before being seen by a child psychologist and then released … with no charges being filed.
::: … mmmm hmmmmm… :::

This is a total abuse of police power,” said the boy’s father. “My son has no mental health problems. He’s never hurt himself. He’s never hurt anyone else.”

Oh, don’t worry, dad! It’s not like you’re kid is special or anything!!
Well, not where YOU live, anyway.

Pinellas schools police report they have been involved throwing students in the psych ward 83 times from the beginning of the school year to the start of last week.
::: Now that’s a commitment to commitment!! :::

The boy’s parents are keeping him and a 9-year-old sister out of school because they’re “scared to death” to return.

Sounds solid and all and I’d probably do the same thing but … umm … a word of caution, folks?
Your school system incarcerated your kid for havin’ a hissy … do you really want to find out how they handle truancy?!?

    Eeek. Florida’s a little ape shit. Maybe it’s time to Bakerize us some Sunshine State. (Duck, Cookie!)

    I have personally known this famaily for over 10 years. The love and dedication to their chilldren and of ours in the community have been endless. I have never met a more polite or sweeter child . You can crucifiy all you want. I have to ask. Do any of you that have commented have any children of your own? I would answer my own question and say probably not. You people were not there. I supose the negative response the poor Anthonys got in orlando for doing nothing but protecting their daughter was justifiable.Lets keep to the facts that obviously are not on the table. If you eave my house and i call the cops and hurt myself and say you did this call me after jail and tell me thats fair!!!!! Life is out of controll.

    Umm … ladytalksalot? Did you, like, READ this post (or the other commenters) before you got your rant on?

  • 5. writechicpress  |  February 15, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    Paula is prolly in shock. Only profoundly incompetent freaks would call in the dogs on a 7-year-olds.

    I’ve read the article and Paula’s comment over and over… I’m totally confused. Who the hell is she defending?? It seemed like she flipped sides in the middle of it.

  • 8. noni  |  February 15, 2009 at 11:35 pm

    I think she had some of Cookie’s liquor …

  • 9. lifeisacookie  |  February 16, 2009 at 3:09 am

    What has gotten into you, girl?!?
    For someone who rarely speaks you are all yayaya lately – what gives, biatch???

  • 10. Type Writer  |  February 17, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    On top of everything else, the penultimate sentence of Paula’s post made no sense to me. Are we no longer required to be coherent when we comment here, Cookie? ‘Cause I can be incoherent with the best of them…


  • 11. lifeisacookie  |  February 17, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    My requirements are that there are no requirements … but anyone who brings the dumbass has to understand they’ll be called out and publicly shamed … cuz that’s just FUN!

    Sorry, but this is the problem with kids today. Know why 2nd graders act this way at school? Because they can. And there’s not a damn thing the teachers can do about it,but kick their little asses out. Had it been my kid, I’d have said GOOD! He needed to have some pretty steep consequences for acting like a little ass. But then again, there’s dicipline at my house & one of my kids would not ever act like this at school. They know they’ll get their ass kicked by mom when they do get out of the nut house! I don’t know what set this kid off, but had he known that mom & dad were going to kick his ass rather than back up this bullshit behavior, I’d be willing to bet, he’d have reacted differently. Remember the good old days when your teacher could paddle your little ass for bullshit behavior? That’s all most kids today need is some good old fashioned ass whoopings. And before everyone starts on and on about “abuse,” yadda, yadda… I’m not talking about abuse. I’m talking about a whack on the behind with a paddle. That is NOT abuse. And yes – I DO have kids – 3 of them, and I’m raising them on my own without their father, but you’ll never meet a better behaved bunch of kids. They screw up, but they know that mom won’t back up bullshit behavior, and that mom would kill them for a display such as this.
