If a police officer says that I'm "not under arrest" and that I'm being "detained"


yet I'm handcuffed behind my back. That to me seems that I'm under arrest - not detained. I've seen a lot of instances of video where the cop said "detained" a witness yet handcuffed her behind her back. I think that is wrong. What do you think? According to FindLaw it's OK: executing a warrant, officer safety purposes, probable cause to place you under arrest. Three 9-year-old girls and an 8-year-old little boy were arrested during a major school fight. The school was ordered from the police not to call the parents. ACLU says that the kids should have been arrested at home.

    Thanks for your great answer. I didn't grow up with cops in our school. Makes me wonder, do kids do more crimes because the cops are there or the other way around. Wow, And I thought school sucked when I was young seems not bad compared to now a days

    Not sure myself. Perhaps progressive, differentiated use of force' instead of full-scale military response to a situation where it is not needed?
