According to LIB, an Orlando school resource officer took two 6-year-old children into police custody for throwing tantrums in school in 2019.

One of the kids arrested and placed in handcuffs is Kaia Rolle.

Speaking on the incident, Kaia’s grandmother, Meralyn Kirkland said she was shocked when she got a call saying a school resource officer at Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy has arrested her grandchild.

Kirkland said Rolle was acting out in class which was a side effect following lack of sleep from a medical condition so she was sent to the principal’s office.

While Rolle was at the office, a staff member grabbed her wrists to try and calm her down but when she lashed out and kicked.

Dennis Turner, the officer involved in the arrest, was reportedly sacked last year amid growing outcry.

Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolón said Dennis Turner did not follow the department’s policy requiring approval from a supervisor for any arrest of a minor younger than 12.

The harrowing video of Kaia Rolle’s arrest has now been released and it shows the little girl sobbing while pleading with the police officer not to take her away but he ignored her and zip-tied her arms behind her back before taking her away.

One of those who condemned the arrest is rapper, T.I who shared the video and called it ‘deplorable’.
