Officers Issue Apology for Handcuffing 7-Year-Old Boy

On Oct. 12, police reportedly put 7-year-old Cameron McCadden in handcuffs at Brownwell STEM Academy's after-school program in Flint, Michigan.

In an Oct. 30 statement, police said, "An officer was dispatched to Brownell STEM Academy in response to an urgent call for immediate assistance with a child who appeared intent on injuring himself, as well as repeatedly assaulting others."

Cameron’s mother, Chrystal McCadden, said, "He don't deserve to be in no handcuffs, he ain't in here with no knife, he ain't in here with no gun."

When Chrystal was called to the school, she could not get her son out of the handcuffs because an officer said that he didn't have the key. Since then, the police issued an apology.

Flint Police Chief James Tolbert told NBC News “It is our model to engage children in a positive light that will foster trust and respect, this incident does not reflect positively on that model."

Chrystal went on to say "He's hyper. I've gotten these calls about (him) being hyper before. But he is not a violent kid. I'm still trying to get answers.” Flint Community Schools Superintendent Bilal Tawwab said the Flint Police Department is reviewing the incident.
