Girl, Age 6, Handcuffed And Detained For Bringing Piece Of Dessert To School With Lunch

In Chicago, a 6-year-old girl was handcuffed and left underneath the stairs in her school. Why? Because the security guard wanted to teach her a lesson. According to the New York Daily News, Madisyn Wordlow was handcuffed and left under the stairs for more than an hour because she allegedly stole a piece of candy.

After some children at Fernwood Elementary School told the security guard that Madisyn had stolen a piece of candy, he took matters into his own hands and punished Madisyn. He told her that he was going to teach her a f—king lesson. Madisyn’s mother, Marlena Wordlow has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Board of Education and the security guard for the excessive punishment.

Marlena insists the candy had been a part of Madisyn’s own lunch. Jeffery Granich, the family’s lawyer, said the school guard, Divelle Yarbrough had used excessive force and caused Madisyn emotional distress. The Chicago Public Schools fired Yarborough and placed a ‘do not hire’ note in his file.

Despite this Wordlow claims the school and local police have not been helpful since the day the incident took place. The day Wordlow went to pick up her Rachel, who has special needs, she was sweating, crying, and scared. The authorities have not filed any charges against Yarbrough.

As of now, Wordlow is looking for a new school for Madisyn. Granich stated that the Chicago Public School system is responsible for ensuring that this sort of thing never happens again. Share away, people.
