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:
‘I hear from psychiatrists weekly’ who warn about the president’s ‘mental incapacity’: Trump biographer
Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio told CNN on Friday that he's been in regular contact with professional psychiatrists who believe President Donald Trump lacks the mental capabilities to handle his job.
During a panel discussion about the president's mental health, D'Antonio spilled the beans about what some experts are telling him they see in the president's behavior and speech patterns.
"I hear from psychiatrists on a weekly basis about a different measure of the president, and that's whether he suffers from mental incapacity," D'Antonio explained. "That's a very different category and goes to whether he can perform his job."
White House sidelining medical experts for ‘too much focus on public health’: AP reporter
President Donald Trump and other White House officials are reportedly tuning out public health experts -- who they believe are "deep state Democrats" who aren't working against the president's re-election.
The Washington Post reported that officials with the Centers for Disease Control are feeling pressure from the president to sign off on reopening schools and businesses despite dire coronavirus risks, and Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that's what he's hearing, as well.
‘Betrayal’: Trump fuming over Brett Kavanaugh voting with majority in tax return cases
According to Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, Donald Trump is reportedly focusing his ire on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, along with Neil Gorsuch, for siding with the majority of justices who ruled on Thursday that the state of New York must be given his tax returns as part of a criminal investigation.
Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" with co-host Willie Geist, Lemire was asked how the president -- and the White House -- are reacting to the setback for the president.
"You're at the White House, it's either a witch hunt or a big win depending on who you ask," host Geist began. "[Trump attorney] Jay Sekulow is also calling it a win. The president doesn't want his tax returns, financial records to see the light of day particularly before election day. What's the concern now with the two 7-2 decisions?"
