More and more children being arrested for trivial things… 
#1 At one public school down in Texas, a 12-year-old girl named Sarah Bustamantes was recently arrested for spraying herself with perfume.
#2 A 13-year-old student at a school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently arrested by police for burping in class.
#3 Another student down in Albuquerque was forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong.
#4 A security guard at one school in California broke the arm of a 16-year-old girl because she left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning up some cake that she had spilled.
#5 One teenage couple down in Houston poured milk on each other during a squabble while they were breaking up. Instead of being sent to see the principal, they were arrested and sent to court.
#6 In early 2010, a 12-year-old girl at a school in Forest Hills, New York was arrested by police and marched out of her school in handcuffs just because she doodled on her desk. “I love my friends Abby and Faith” was what she reportedly scribbled on her desk.
#7 A 6-year-old girl down in Florida was handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.
#8 One student down in Texas was reportedly arrested by police for throwing paper airplanes in class.
#9 A 17-year-old honor student in North Carolina named Ashley Smithwick accidentally took her father’s lunch with her to school. It contained a small paring knife which he would use to slice up apples. So what happened to this standout student when the school discovered this? The school suspended her for the rest of the year and the police charged her with a misdemeanor.
#10 In Allentown, Pennsylvania a 14-year-old girl was tasered in the groin area by a school security officer even though she had put up her hands in the air to surrender.
#11 Down in Florida, an 11-year-old student was arrested, thrown in jail and charged with a third-degree felony for bringing a plastic butter knife to school.
#12 Back in 2009, an 8-year-old boy in Massachusetts was sent home from school and was forced to undergo a psychological evaluation because he drew a picture of Jesus on the cross.
#13 A police officer in San Mateo, California blasted a 7-year-old special education student in the face with pepper spray because he would not quit climbing on the furniture.
#14 In America today, even 5-year-old children are treated brutally by police. The following is from a recent article that described what happened to one very young student in Stockton, California a while back….
“Earlier this year, a Stockton student was handcuffed with zip ties on his hands and feet, forced to go to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was charged with battery on a police officer. That student was 5 years old”.
#15 At one school in Connecticut, a 17-year-old boy was thrown to the floor and tasered five times because he was yelling at a cafeteria worker.
#16 A teenager in suburban Dallas was forced to take on a part-time job after being ticketed for using foul language in one high school classroom. The original ticket was for $340, but additional fees have raised the total bill to $637.
#17 A few months ago, police were called out when a little girl kissed a little boy during a physical education class at an elementary school down in Florida.
#18 A 6-year-old boy was recently charged with sexual battery for some “inappropriate touching” during a game of tag at one elementary school in the San Francisco area.
#19 In Massachusetts, police were recently sent out to collect an overdue library book from a 5-year-old girl.

this is the prison industrial complex at work. You build more prisons, you need more people to fill those prisons, and starting on children is the way to get them “trained” and prepared for life in the criminal justice system. It’s been happening in the Black communities since forever. 

Don’t get distracted by the white boy in the photo, but this policing of youth is predominately focused on youth of color. This is just one example of how a white supremacist society doesn’t view people of color as human; youth of color are never viewed as children and are denied the presumption of innocence attached to childhood.

I’m all for women’s rights and stuff but like some people take it too far idk like obviously there are things that we need to work on as a society and there’s a whole lot wrong with societies views of women and the way we are expected to act but like a 12 year old girl was shot in the face for trying to go to school in Afghanistan?? idk in America we have it pretty good I guess I feel like a lot of the time ppl are just looking for something to complain about

I would like to show you how ass-ignorant you are right now.

Remember when a 7 year old girl IN AMERICA WAS LIT ON FIRE AND SHOT BY THE POLICE FOR EXISTING???

Or when Tanya McDowell, a Black single mother sent her child to a school outside her district  in hopes of getting the child a better education, received a 5 year prison sentence?????

Remember when Joe Arpaio is too busy forcing women to give birth in CHAINS to even both to investigate OVER 400 RAPES in his jurisdiction?

Or when the number of women in poverty are at an all-time historic high RIGHT NOW?

And that women of color are TWICE as likely to be poor as white women?

Or when the Scott sisters received life sentences for stealing $11 as teens?

Or when Marissa Alexander was sentenced to 20 years for firing a warning shot from a gun she legally owned at her abuser who was threatening to kill her, 9 days after giving birth?

Or when CeCe McDonald was put into prison for DEFENDING HERSELF AGAINST A NEO-NAZI TRYING TO KILL HER?

Or when South Carolina sterilized over 7,000 people, mostly Black women?


Or when Regina McKnight, Laura Pemberton, Rachel Lowe, Martina Greywind, Michelle Marie Greenup, and countless other women have been thrown in jail for being PREGNANT?

BUT YEAH WOMEN IN AMERICA HAVE IT PRETTY GOOD, RIGHT?

SHUT UP WITH YOU WHITE SAVIOR BULLSHIT AND CLEAN UP YOUR OWN FUCKING HOUSE BEFORE YOU START FUCKING AROUND IN OTHER PEOPLE’S HOUSES.

Judge stops school from expelling girl who refused to wear tracking deviceNovember 16, 2012
A Texas high school student will be allowed to continue going to class for now despite her refusal to cooperate with a program that forces pupils to be mandatorily tracked with computer chips.
Andrea Hernandez was told she’d be expelled from John Jay High School’s Science and Engineering Academy in San Antonio starting next week if she insists any further on disobeying a new policy that requires students to wear ID badges equipped with tiny Radio Frequency Identification (“RFID”) chips. Now attorneys with the Rutherford Institute say Hernandez has been granted a temporary restraining order that will prohibit the Northside Independent School District from relocating the student to another facility.
“The court’s willingness to grant a temporary restraining order is a good first step, but there is still a long way to go — not just in this case, but dealing with the mindset, in general, that everyone needs to be monitored and controlled,” Rutherford Institute President John Whitehead says in a statement.
“Regimes in the past have always started with the schools, where they develop a compliant citizenry. These ‘Student Locator’ programs are ultimately aimed at getting students used to living in a total surveillance state where there will be no privacy, and wherever you go and whatever you text or email will be watched by the government.”
Starting in September, students at John Jay and one other area school were asked to wear ID badges that broadcast their location so educators can keep more accurate attendance records and, ideally, be provided with more funding. Hernandez refused to cooperate right off the bat, however, a maneuver that she said landed her in hot water with educators almost immediately.
“I had a teacher tell me I would not be allowed to vote because I did not have the proper voter ID,” she told WND. “I had my old student ID card which they originally told us would be good for the entire four years we were in school. He said I needed the new ID with the chip in order to vote.”
Earlier this month, the parents of John Jay students were told that pupils are required to carry the badges, and that Hernandez would be expelled starting Nov. 26 if she continues to protest.
“There is something fundamentally disturbing about this school district’s insistence on steamrolling students into complying with programs that have nothing whatsoever to do with academic priorities and everything to do with fattening school coffers,” Whitehead said after the school issued their warning.
“By virtue of the First Amendment, students in our society are at liberty to conscientiously choose which governmental programs they will support and which they will oppose. It’s a sad day in America when school officials deny someone an education simply because she stands up for what she believes in.”
