Father Outraged After Second-Grader is Handcuffed in School for Misbehaving

A Kansas City father is outraged after he was called in to school after his son was misbehaving, only to find the boy waiting for him in handcuffs.

“Some of the kids were messing with me,” says 7-year-old Kalyb Primm Wiley. Wiley says some of his classmates were teasing him and he stated screaming, though he never got violent. When a teacher could not calm him down, she called a school security officer who walked him to the principal’s office “like a criminal.”

Kalyb says “We were halfway down the hall, he put handcuffs on and twisted my wrists a little.”

Kalyb adds that handcuffs are only for bad guys. “Criminals, robbers, bank robbers, stealers,” says Kalyb. “Because kids are not that bad.”

His parents were called in to school and his father found his son handcuffed when he arrived.

Kalyb’s mother Tomesha Primm says “I don’t think any 7-year-old should be in handcuffs unless he was armed with a weapon, or violent.”

Primm’s father says “a school spokesman said the security guard followed protocol to ensure everyone’s safety.” The parents are now planning to “move him to another district” that doesn’t treat children like criminals.

This certainly isn’t the first time a non-violent child has been handcuffed by some school Paul Blart-type security guard. Recently in Georgia, a security officer handcuffed a kindergartener who was “on the floor of the principal’s office screaming and crying.”

When the officer tried to calm down the girl, he says she “pulled away and began actively resisting and fighting with me.” That’s when “the child was placed in handcuffs for her safety and the officer proceeded to bring her down to the police station.”

Good to see Georgia and Missouri cops really cracking down on the most hardened of criminals.

    While this appears to be an over-reaction, keep in mind life is no longer a nostalgic ‘Norman Rockwell’ lithograph. In 1982, I was a sworn police officer of Vermont’s largest city. I had been detailed to take into custody two juvenile female shoplifters aged 11-13 having attempted the theft of over $1,500 in merchandise.

    Our deptment’s policy forbade handcuffing children, it also forbade cross-general pat-downs. I was in a single officer police cruiser with only a wire grill between the front and rear seats. The 13 year old girl was frightened at being caught and passively compliant. Her 11 year old companion was highly aggitated and violently combative, to the point of challenging me with a length of construction rebar. I placed each “child” into the cruiser but elected to violate dept policy and handcuff the 11 yr old. Suspicious of her demeanor, I asked a female officer to standby for our arrival.

    I had the female officer strip search the 11 yr old. The Officer found the 11 yr old had a LOADED American Arms ,22 cal. mini revolver secreted in her bra under her left breast! I later learned she had deliberately ingested half a bottle of prescription Valium she obtained by providing a pedophile neighbor with sexual favors! .

    Are ALL today’s children ‘miniature felons’? Of course not…. BUT the recent spate of juvenile school mass shootings, stabbing and even BOMBINGS …BY JUVENILES demands we lay aside our nostalgia in a society which no longer condones even age-appropriate spankings!

    YOUR kids are MORE observant, ..MORE cunning and in rare cases, MORE insidious… than YOU or I would have EVER dared to be—

    Wake the Hell up! >:(

    Sorry this kid being bullied and getting a negative outcome by “authority figures” is one of the reasons for so much disrespect of cop figures by the young. I’m now even having a hard time respecting these idiots at my age.
