A police officer is fired after arresting two 6-year-old children

State Attorney Aramis Ayala said Monday that her office would not prosecute the misdemeanor battery charges against either child.

“I refuse to knowingly play any role in the school-to-prison pipeline at any age,” she said. “These very young children ought to be protected, nurtured and disciplined in a manner that does not rely on the criminal justice system to do it.”

The Orlando Police Department oversees the school resource officer who made the arrest, and they say the situation was not handled properly.

“On behalf of myself and the Orlando Police Department, I apologize to the children involved and their families,” Rolon said.

It sounds very much as if the reasons given for not pursuing charges are that procedure was not followed, and not that it was wrong to arrest a six year old child for having a temper tantrum in the first place. [Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!]

Well, at least the shitty officer was fired.
