When I saw this headline, I had to look twice. See, I always read articles from the press from a “What if this was true?” perspective. After reading the article, I’d love to hear your thoughts. It’s very short so I’ll just paste it here:
Valpo sixth-grader handcuffed over spilled milk

By Erin Guerra Post-Tribune correspondent Apr 15, 2011 02:00AM

VALPARAISO — A 12-year-old faces two counts of resisting law enforcement for his alleged actions when he refused to clean up spilled milk in the Ben Franklin Middle School cafeteria.
A police officer was helping supervise the lunch period on Tuesday, because both the principal and assistant principal were in a meeting, and the boy got into a confrontation with a school staff member.
After refusing to wipe up the mess, according to the police report, the sixth-grader refused to sit and wait for the other students to return to class so the staff member could deal with him individually.
He then allegedly ran away — through hallways and the kitchen — when the police officer attempted to escort him to the principal’s office.
Once caught, he fought and kicked the officer in attempts to get away and eventually was put in handcuffs.
The student was released to a parent.

It's one of those WOW days here in Cheddar Land.
Human error seems to have been the reason we were so close. I’m sure the Unions sent Kloppenburg out to claim victory so that liberals could once again say “They stole it.”

Upon further review, Scott Walker and the people of Wisconsin said “screw you” to mob rule. This is a wonderful development, but as the article says, these numbers will change again and again and again. But it’s nice to know this time it was found early and honestly.
