One child’s love for candy led to her being put under the school’s stairs wearing handcuffs. Six-year-old Madisyn Moore, a student at Fernwood Elementary, took candy off of her teachers desk last week and the security guard decided to teach her a lesson.
It was nearly an hour later before the girl’s mom was able to rescue her. “I said ‘why you have my baby in cuffs?’” mother Marlena Wordlaw told NBC Chicago. “He said, ‘because I’m trying to teach them to stop taking stuff that don’t belong to them’.”
“They hurted,” the girl said about being put in the cuffs. “He snatched me out of my class. He made me get out in my handcuffs.”
“When he pulled her from under stairs she was crying,” Wordlaw said about her daughter. “He told me ‘I ‘m doing my job, I’m trying to teach her a lesson.’ I understand these teenage boys and whatever the case may be, yeah you can try to teach them a lesson but this is a little girl.”
The principal attempted to apologize to Wordlaw but she wasn’t having it. “I don’t accept your apology ever,” Wordlaw said she told the school’s head. “I’m more angry than anything, because it’s my only daughter. I feel like anything could have happened to her. Somebody could have touched her. She’s in the dark under the stairs,” Wordlaw continued.
She also says that she plans a lawsuit for the incident. Watch the full interview below:
Michael Bloomberg ‘lost everything’ in Las Vegas: MSNBC analyst
Senior editor for "The Root," Jason Johnson, concluded that the biggest loser of the Democratic debate in Las Vegas Wednesday was Michael Bloomberg, but not merely because of his debate performance.
"The big new name was going to be Michael Bloomberg," he said. "This was probably the most expensive night in Vegas I've ever seen. He lost everything. This guy has spent $320 million. He had the opportunity to stand on stage, and appear to be an equal, and he looked bored. He looked disenchanted. He stumbled over obvious questions that anybody would have anticipated about sexual harassment and stop and frisk. I thought it was a bad night for him."

Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden eviscerate Bloomberg on his nondisclosure agreements with women over harassment
Women who have worked for Michael Bloomberg's companies have had nondisclosure agreements that bar then from discussing the complaints they had against either Bloomberg himself or male employees of his companies. During the debate, the former New York City mayor was hammered for refusing to allow those women out of the NDAs.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren blasted him first, demanding to know the number of women that signed NDAs and how many of them have been released. Bloomberg dodged the inquiry, but Warren refused to let him escape.
"How many is that?" she asked.
"Let me finish," he snapped.
