“Alton school officials and Alton Police stand by the decision to place an 8-year-old girl in handcuffs after allegedly throwing a tantrum Tuesday. Lovejoy Elementary School said as a last resort they sometimes have to involve law enforcement. However, the school said it is rare for them to involve police in these types of situations.
Rickman, who reportedly has a history of throwing tantrums at the school, was apparently out of control and had torn up two classrooms.
Neheniah Keeton, Rickman’s guardian, says the cops manhandled her and feels the officer’s actions were excessive.
