Florida Cops Arrest Six-year-old Girl for Throwing Temper Tantrum in Classroom

A sleep-deprived six-year-old girl was handcuffed and transported to jail Thursday where she was fingerprinted and photographed after throwing a temper tantrum in class.

Kaia Rolle suffers from sleep apnea and was acting out from lack of sleep when she kicked a teacher who was trying to calm her down, her aunt, Meralyn Kirkland, told WFLA.

But the teacher called the local school resource cop who handcuffed the girl, placed her in his car and drove her to the Orange Regional Juvenile Assessment Center where she was booked on a misdemeanor charge of battery complete with mugshot.

“Grandma, the handcuffs hurt,” the girl told her grandmother after she had been released, according to Click Orlando.

Orlando police officer Dennis Turner, the school resource cop, also arrested an eight-year-old student from the same school that very same day and is now being investigated by internal affairs because he failed to obtain approval from his watch commander before making either arrest. Departmental policy requires officers to obtain approval before arresting any juvenile under the age of 12.

The arrests took place in an Orlando public charter school named Lucious & Emma Nixon Academy.

An Orlando cop named Dennis Turner retired last year. It is not clear at this time if these are the same people.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
