*After hearing the news that a security guard at Chicago’s Fernwood Elementary School called himself “teaching a lesson” to a six year old girl that he handcuffed because she took candy off of her teacher’s desk; the song that goes, “Y’all gone make me lose my mind, up in here” could not have been far from her mother’s thinking.
The guard pulled little Madisyn Moore out of class and handcuffed the little girl under some stairs.
According to a video report by NBC Chicago (scroll down to see it), Madisyn said, ““They hurted. He snatched me out of my class. He made me get out in my handcuffs.”
Marlena Wordlaw, the little girl’s mother, showed up in less than an hour after getting the call that Madisyn had gotten into trouble. But she got to the school in time to see her child still in cuffs.
“I said ‘why you have my baby in cuffs?’ He said, ‘because I’m trying to teach them to stop taking stuff that don’t belong to them’.”
“When he pulled her from under [the] stairs she was crying,” Wordlaw said. “He told me ‘I’m doing my job, I’m trying to teach her a lesson’.”
Wordlaw did say that an apology was given by the school principal, but she admits it was not enough. “I will never accept an apology,” she tells reporter, Natalie Martinez; who adds Wood does plan to file a lawsuit.
