Everyone has done it. Most often unintentionally. But once or twice, if not more, in our lifetime we have sat in class and doodled on a desk.
Sometimes we got detention and had to clean the desk if we were caught.
But not any more:
She was led out of school in cuffs and walked to the precinct across the street, where she was detained for several hours, she and her mother said.I'm never letting my kids go to school in that state:
"I started crying, like, a lot," said Alexa. "I made two little doodles. ... It could be easily erased. To put handcuffs on me is unnecessary."Alexa, who had a stellar attendance record, hasn't been back to school since, adding, "I just thought I'd get a detention. I thought maybe I would have to clean [the desk]."
"She's been throwing up," said her mom, Moraima Camacho, 49, an accountant, who lives with her daughter in Kew Gardens. "The whole situation has been a nightmare."
Alexa is still suspended from her school, her mother said. She and her mom went to family court on Tuesday, where Alexa was assigned eight hours of community service, a book report and an essay on what she learned from the experience.At least she avoided being sent to a mental hospital. And people want to put armed guards in every school knowing these stories?
