Families say incidents show pattern of unfair punishment for girls of color


October 30, 2020

Shocking video showed 6-year-old Kaia Rolle being hauled away from her school by a police officer, after she kicked a teacher during a tantrum in an incident last year.

Body camera footage captured it all, including Rolle's pleas to "let me go" and insisting "I don't want to put handcuffs on."

Nevertheless, the first grader was placed in handcuffs and taken to a juvenile detention center to be booked and fingerprinted in September 2019, according to Rolle's grandmother Meralyn Kirkland.
