8-year-old Boy is Arrested -- For the Fifth Time Since November!

One of Bébé's kids -- an absolute danger to himself and society -- was arrested last Tuesday after he fought and assaulted a teacher. The perp, who was charged with battery, is an 8-year-old special education student at an Orlando, Fla. school and this week's arrest was his fifth in two months. That's his most recent mug shot above. (Apparently, because he's a minor, we can't see his face.)
The public defender's office said deputies came to Riverside Elementary on Tuesday for the child's latest attack on teachers. The child now has a mug shot and a rap sheet....Last month, the same teacher said the boy "struck him with the chair and fist," and said at one point the boy was "chasing other students around the classroom threatening to kill them." According to the police report, no one was ever seriously injured, but the teacher called deputies for an arrest each time. The boy's mother said her child "doesn't act this way at home." A representative for the Orange County School District said each incident is reviewed on a case by case basis, and it's up to the administrator to maintain order in the school and sometimes law enforcement can be called. The district said law enforcement takes over the case from there. The boy appeared in court Friday and saw his mother for the first time after being held at the Juvenile Detention Center for three days. The judge chastised his mother for not following through with previous recommendations to get the boy counseling. "He's your responsibility. We really don't want to be a part of his life," the judge said. The mother's attorney said the school district had failed them. "Students who have special needs should be given appropriate services, including counseling and behavioral services," attorney Barbara Glass aid. The judge ordered the child to mandatory counseling outside of the classroom. A district spokesman said he could not talk about the case specifically, but said principals are required to maintain order in their schools, which sometimes requires calling law enforcement.
We don't know nuthin' 'bout birthin' no babies!, so we hope this little boy gets the psychological help he desperately needs before he ends up in prison -- or dead. And his mother needs to get a grip and accept responsibility.
