A elementary school principal has been charged with battery against a minor after he handuffed a 9-year old for misbehaving at school. "We felt it warranted charges," Spain said. "I have no idea what his thinking was." Thinking? Somebody better clue in the Arkansas law enforcement community that they don't pay school administrators to think - they pay them to enforce rules blindly. And I'll bet that this school district doesn't have a specific rule against handcuffing students.
