US officer handcuffs child with learning disabilities

A US sheriff’s deputy faces a federal lawsuit after he was captured on video handcuffing an eight-year-old child who was acting out due to his learning disabilities at a school in Kentucky.

The incident, which occurred in autumn 2014, involved an eight-year-old boy with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and a nine-year-old girl, who were handcuffed for 15 minutes and 30 minutes respectively, for behavior difficulties relating to their disabilities.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing the Kenton County sheriff’s deputy Kevin Sumner, who works as a school resources officer at the Latonia Elementary School in Covington.
