Florida girl, 6, arrested by school resource officer, under investigation

An Orlando school resource officer arrested two elementary school students ages 6 and 8 on misdemeanor charges without approval from a watch commander. Officer Dennis Turner is facing an internal investigation because he failed to follow department policy and his duties have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

Sounds like a poorly raised and very poorly behaved child mixing up with an authoritarian official; predictable result. I'm interested in what sort of legal record such children have as they get older, whether they continue to be poorly socialized or if they improve.

I wonder what the kid did? No one is so dumb and also a police officer to arrest a 6 year old unless they like stabbed someone or something. Kids nowdays...

He is not suspended for arresting the kid. He is suspended for not following procedures and arresting the kid without approval from his commander. As for whether the 6 y/o should be arrested for battery, I mean, if kids can be charged for murder, I don't see why getting arrested for battery is so out of line.
