This punk ass cop Kevin Sumner is being sued for his actions but wasn’t fired.
Believe it or not, he used the “feared for my safety” defense.
The kid is 8, the cop is 54.
Just horrific actions and frankly he should be in jail.
A school resource officer in Kentucky who handcuffed young children acted unreasonably and violated the children’s constitutional rights, a federal judge ruled this week.
Two children, ages 8 and 9, were handcuffed by Kevin Sumner, a school resource officer with Covington Independent Public Schools. They were cuffed behind their backs, and the cuffs were placed above their elbows because the restraints would have slipped off their wrists. Video of the handcuffing of the 8-year-old went viral after it was made public by the American Civil Liberties Union in 2015.
“Oh, God. Ow, that hurts,” the young boy said as Sumner applied the cuffs, which pulled the child’s shoulders back tightly. The officer told the boy he would “suffer the consequences” if he didn’t do as he was asked.
