KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSHB) – A Kansas City second grader said his school treated him like a criminal Wednesday by placing him in handcuffs simply because he was misbehaving.
“Some of the kids were messing with me,” second grader Kalyb Primm Wiley said of what started the incident.
He said after his classmates teased and taunted him, he started screaming but never got physical with other students or teachers. And when the teacher couldn’t calm him down, he said a school security officer took him to the principal’s office like a criminal.
“We were halfway down the hall, he put handcuffs on and twisted my wrists a little,” Kalyb said.
When his father showed up at the school’s front office, Kalyb was still in handcuffs.
