Title: Disturbing video shows 10-year-old with autism arrested at school

A video clip posted online by a Florida mother shows the moment her 10-year-old son with autism was handcuffed, placed into a police car and taken from school.

In the shaky cellphone footage obtained by CBS News, Luanne Haygood can be heard asking two school resource officers, “Does a child not have the same rights as an adult?”

“I was extremely angry,” Haygood told CBS Miami last week. “I felt like this was a power play. I felt like this was a this is what you get. You can’t do anything about it. We’re going to arrest your son if he can’t abide by the rules,” she said.

The sheriff’s office said John Benjamin Haygood was arrested April 12 for felony battery on a school board authority. He spent time in juvenile detention.

His mother said this stems from when he kicked a paraprofessional at Okeechobee Alternative Academy in December 2016. The altercation allegedly left the teacher with scratches and other marks, CBS affiliate WPEC-TV reported.

“He didn’t feel good with a paraprofessional. He told me that and I told him you got to go back to school. He said, ‘I don’t want to go back to school. I don’t like him. I don’t like him. He hurts me,’” she said. 170418-john-benjamin-haygood-arrested-01-fixed.jpg

John’s mother does not deny her son’s troubled history in school, but says his autism is responsible for his behavior.

In October, John was expelled from school and forced to complete work from home.

But last Wednesday, when he reported back to school for the first time in five months for state testing, things didn’t go as planned. A school resource officer recognized him and confirmed he still had an outstanding warrant for the assault, WPEC reported.

“I asked, ‘Are you going to arrest him right now?’ She said, ‘Yes ma’am, we have to,’” Haygood said.

“It was horrible,” John told WPEC. “I didn’t know what was going on.” 170418-john-benjamin-haygood-arrested-02-fixed.jpg

WPEC reported that John said he was only fed one meal during his time behind bars.

“To go and have him arrested on school grounds in front of other students, in front of personnel, during school hours, they could’ve come to my house at any time to tell me what was going on,” she said.

His mother is fed up calling out the school district for not providing the right resources to handle a child like John.

“If I let my emotions go, I’m going to lose it. I’m going to cry, cuss, rant and rave. Nobody will listen to me. ‘Oh, that’s the crazy lady’ or whatever,” she said. “I want something done. I want other kids to not have to go through this.”

“Now, maybe something will be changed,” Haygood told WPEC. “Now, maybe somebody will believe me and other parents when we say our kids are being mistreated.”

John has an upcoming court date in May.

The Okeechobee County school district issued a statement to WPEC:

It has been district procedure to invite students in to take the Florida Standards Assessment. The district would not invite someone to one of our campuses for the sole purpose to arrest.

The district routinely assists students by providing services from our board certified behavioral analyst, licensed mental health counselors, school social workers, and psychologists. As a team, these individuals develop interventions, conduct assessments, and offer support both at school and in the home in order to assist students and families.

The district is unable to provide specific information as to both current and past incidents regarding this or any other student due to educational laws and rules. It is our hope that we can continue to work with all families to help their students improve both behaviorally and academically.

That's a reason,not an excuse.

There is a difference.

Autistic or not,he can NOT be allowed to grow up thinking it is ok to kick people just because you don't like them,and it HAS to be said that "Mom is contributing to this problem by accepting it as normal."

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

I’ll bet she’s fed up!

But probably not nearly as fed us as the school district is for having to try and handle a child look John, when they are able to handle all other children with autism.

The ADA federal guidance requires the school to educate John….nowhere in those requirements is it lawfully mandatory for school personnel to take abuse from John.

It is obvious that the mother has a child with severe problems and he cannot adapt to the minimum social requirements for an autistic child to attend a public school.

The mother needs to recognize that and take personal responsibility for corrective action to help her child, instead of pawning him off on the public school system. And then piss and moan about about something the school cannot possiblly do….handle an “extremely” problematic child with severe autism. That goes beyond the school personnel’s pay grade and job standard requirement.

His mother is quite the enabler of his bad behavior.

I see no "severe autism". In fact, I'm seeing no autism symptoms at all.

I see a fawning mother who enables every bit of his bad behaviors.

Now that’s an interesting observation you make.

I too saw the fawning mother, but I laid the source of the problem on the child.

You, however, have correctly laid the source of the problem in the proper place….with the mother.

I miss the good old days - when Amerika wasn't a police state and teachers could cope with autistic children without having to call the pigs.

You have obviously never seen severe autism.
