DPD officers Handcuff an 8 Year old Autistic Boy

Fox 31 News is reporting that an 8 year old autistic boy was hand cuffed and transported to Denver Children’s Hospital after he suffered an “outburst” on the school bus.  He was then placed on a mental heath hold.  The boy’s father Donald said, “It’s humiliating and it’s inhumane…  If you’re going to tell me that ten adults can’t handle a 40 or 50 pound child, then there’s something wrong.  He didn’t need to be in handcuffs.”

Of course DPD is claiming that they followed appropriate procedures.  Our condolences to the family for having to deal with such a traumatizing and unnecessary ordeal.  For the DPD its just another random act of brutality.
