    9-year-old Fla. girl faces felony charges after school bus tantrum

    By Casey Glynn

    Officials say the girl jumped off the school bus Monday afternoon after spitting at staff members.

    Authorities say the girl walked away when she saw the deputy. She picked up a metal chair in a nearby yard and threw it at the deputy. When he said she was under arrest, the girl resisted by kicking and attempting to push him.

    Reportedly, no one was injured.

    She is charged with battery on a school employee and a law enforcement officer among other charges.

    I'm not getting anywhere through your link. Is the child emotionally or mentally disturbed? That behavior sounds off balance for that age group. I've seen several articles over the last few months where Florida officials made some crazy judgment calls. Isn't that where the boy in kindergarten got hit with a tazor when he wouldn't calm down?

    Are juveniles usually charged with felonies?
    Shouldn't the girl be charged with delinquency or something? 
    I'm confused.
    But I do know a 9-year-old is still a child, not an adult...

      Could be, but this thread gave me a memory flashback. Remember this?

        I've heard of that movie, but never seen it;  but I've seen similar ones about "evil" children.  Trying to remember the names of the movies....ha...

        Well, I still agree with Stevennix and say a child is a child, and should be subjected to medical treatment and/or mental health care, etc., instead of being treated as a criminal.

    Well I would recommend child counseling for the girl, since it's obvious she suffers from anger issues, but I know some hubbers will criticize me saying that it'll be allegedly psychologically damaging to them to get professional help.  roll

    By the way, I don't think the charges against the 9 yr old kid is fair, and it's unwarranted; thus I'd appreciate if nobody misunderstands this post, as I have a feeling a couple of people will.  All I said was that in my opinion, her parents should look into her obvious anger issues.  that's all.  Or if this is somehow an act of repressed feelings, then perhaps having her vent out her anger through some after school sports activity might help. 

    Personally, I think it's crazy to hear about all these adult charges being assessed to children, as I could've sworn it used to be that you had to be 18 yrs old before facing adult charges.  Now, that doesn't really seem to be the case....

    She is being charged as a minor, probably a good way to get her mandated treatment even if the parents don't agree with it.

    I was going to say that this has all the earmarks of being a medical issue, at which point the felony would be tossed, but you both beat me to it.
