Boy, 11, arrested for drawing stick figures

An 11-year-old boy was arrested and hauled away from his home in handcuffs because he drew a violent "stick-figure" picture at school -- which is what his therapist recommended, as a way for him to express his frustration without actually becoming violent.

His mother, “Jane,” however, was shocked when Arvada Police showed up at their home later that night. She says she told her son to cooperate and tell the truth, but was horrified when they told her they were arresting him and then handcuffed him and hauled him away in a patrol car.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, JUNGLE JIM!
