POLICE STATE - 11 Year Old Girl Arrested At School For Being "Extremely Rude" 

An 11-year-old Colorado student was handcuffed and taken to a juvenile
holding facility when she became 'argumentative and extremely rude' with
her school's assistant principal.

Yajira Quezada, a sixth grader
at Shaw Heights Middle School, was in a hallway trying to retrieve a
sweater from her locker when she was reportedly confronted by the school
official.

The assistant principal began to admonish Ms Quezada
before she abruptly turned away saying, 'I don't have time for this,'
according to a 9news.com report.

'She told me that I need to quit
giving her my attitude. Why would they handcuff me? I'm not the type of
girl to get arrested,' Ms Quezada said.

After a counsellor's
attempt to intervene was unsuccessful, Ms Quezada girl was handcuffed
and placed in a resource officer's patrol car before being whisked away
to a juvenile detention centre dubbed 'The Link.'

No charges were filed.

Ms
Quezada's mother, Mireya Gaytan, questioned the school's actions and
bruise marks on left on her daughter's wrist by the handcuffs.

'They're
treating them like criminals. And they're not, they're kids,' Ms
Gaytan, said. "I don't want this to happen to any more 11-year-old kids.
They're scaring them. They're traumatizing them," Gaytan said.

Ms Gaytan has moved both her daughters to a new school following the incident.

School
officials promised to take a close look at the incident, as they
normally do anytime the police become involved in a school concern,
according to Steve Saunders, communications director for Adams County
School District 50.

'You hate to see something escalate to where
it becomes a police matter. Once they step in and take over a case, it
is really in their hands. The conclusion was, as far as the district was
concerned, everything was handled appropriately,' Saunders told
9news.com.

In any case, Ms Quezada seems to have learned a valuable lesson when it comes to communicating with teachers.

'Not to give them attitude,' she said. 'I am blaming myself.'

  • Well, it worked. Perhaps her mother should have taught her daughter how to respect authority prior to this.

      That's why a responsible school would call the parents not the cops ffs.
      Plus we don't know if it worked do we?

      Perhaps. Then again maybe they have in the past and nothing changed. The media were only interested in sensationalizing this incident and didn't provide much insight into the big picture.

      The school AND the parents are now expecting the government (police) to do their work for them.
      This is not a 'media' issue no matter how the big picture looks. It's just wrong to call the cops on a rude kid inside the school...

      Just one more thing.

      We know that kids who think outside the square are smarter and can be more defiant to authority. We also know how to harness that energy and put it to good use for the benefit of all involved. None of this involves cops unless the school, the educators and the parents are a bunch of totally incompetent morons...

      I have instilled respect and courtesy into my children. They have never been in any sort of trouble in school. My eldest is well on her way to completing high school in three years. This kid probably couldn't even speak English until the third grade and statistically she'll be a knocked up drop out before her 16th birthday.

      Statistically?? Like what happened to Palin's daughter or was that the exception that makes the rule.

      Listen, I have no doubt that you're a good parent, but even if your kids are like the most respectful on the planet, arresting their 11 year old school mate is seriously wrong.

      Besides, is this what we want our police to be doing???

      sure he would , but this is happening to other . the principal failed to control an 11 years old child and called the police

      In that case the principal should lose his job. He's an educator not a state prosecutor.

      This mentality of lock them up and throw the keys is destroying the US from within.

      Being 5% of the World population the US has 25% of the World's prison population at a cost of $90K per person per year.
      Private prisons' shareholders are very happy tho, Cheney's one of them.

      The other issue for me is do we ever have to teach our kids to defy authority in certain cases??
      Yes, I did (my kids are ad More..

  • She was being a little bitch and since schools are no longer to dish out corporal punishment, little brats like her feel they can do whatever they please with little reprocussions. Bring back corporal punishment and keep the cops out of schools.

  • The mum and the kid should shut the fuck up and learn some manners, I'm fed up with young teens especially girls who think they can cuss away at any one in authority and get away with it. Sorry kids, we didn't do it in my day because we knew we would be in serious trouble, its about time you lot knew the same thing.

    Mind you, with the parents being similar scum its hardly surprising she has a gob like that.

  • Re-fucking-diculous! The police shouldn't even respond to call of rudeness. Much less terrorize the kids. To not follow "orders" is a weird thing to even be talked about in school. Who the hell do they think they are? -"Orders"!! This is abotu breaking the independent will of children. Anyone doesn't succumb to the indoctrination into being good little sheep, call the cops to traumatize them. Then they'll learn to obey authority. Thank god she didn't have a drawing of a gun i More..

      There is no law on the books in any state in the Union that allows arrest for 'being a little shit'

      True, but I hate seeing pussy parents dismissing their kids shitty behavior and blaming it on someone else. The bottom line is that the kid started this whole chain of events.

  • Boohoo.....

    Behave and be respectful and you won't have to worry about this shit.

    What happened to the good old days when you marched the bitch to the office and make her parents come pick her up with a few detention days given out? Repeat offenders should just be suspended, then expelled if it continues. My father gave the school permission to "spank" me if I got out of line like that. But it never had to be done.

    Handcuffing may be a bit much, but it's not a big deal.

    • @ArrestU

      Not so sure I agree with you on the aspect of its not being a big deal. When I was in school the administrators didn't need permission to spank, it was just done, but the police were never called for a little girl being a brat. We were taught to question authority (in an appropriate manner)while the youth of today are being taught that compliance is the only acceptable response. Where has common sense gone? Don't teachers know that they are in charge and not the children?

      I'm all for More..

      I respect your point opinion.

      We don't know the full story. The girl being rude may have started the whole thing, but perhaps the girl was so out of control, they had no choice.

      It is hard to believe what the media feeds us at face value.

  • There were marks on her wrists because she was struggling. If that would have been me at 11, the teacher would have given it to me and then my father would have given it to me.

  • well, parents rant and rave if the school tries to discipline their child. So now they have to call the cops to handle disrupting students. I like it :)

    Why does it have to get violent before something is done?

  • WTF??

    This is insane.

    What's wrong with calling the parents for a disciplinary meeting and work out why is the kid so defiant to school authority.
    I guess that's the old fashion way. These days you just lock them up in jail and hope they don't go back to school with a fully automatic machine gun for some payback...

    This action by the school can be described as Bullying imo.
