Police Pepper Spray Angry Second Grader [VIDEO]
Though most children can get a bit unruly, a second grade boy threw such a temper tantrum at school that police had to blast him not once -- but twice -- with pepper spray.
8-year-old Stevie Davis of Colorado caused trouble on the morning bus, but his anger escalated once he arrived at school when he threatened to kill his teacher and another staff member.
Teachers became frightful once Davis began spitting at them and tearing up the classroom. After throwing a chair and threatening to stab teachers with a piece of wall siding he'd torn off, the teachers barricaded themselves in the room and waited for police to arrive.
Once on scene, police asked Davis to drop the sharp object. When he refused they sprayed him with pepper spray. Police say the spray was necessary in order to prevent the 82-lb. angry boy from hurting classmates and teachers.
What do you think? Appropriate use of force? I remember them breaking out the paddle back in the day, but pepper spray might be a first, at least for an 8-year-old.
