School Sued After Boy’s Burp Led to Trouble

Just this month, a seventh grade boy in Albuquerque, NM was handcuffed by a city police office, arrested and taken from school to the Detention Center after he “burped audibly” while he was in his P.E. class, according to a civil rights lawsuit filed last week.  He was transported without his parents being notified.  A month earlier, the same student was apparently forced to strip to his underwear while five adults watched after he was accused of selling marijuana to another student, although he was never charged with a crime in that incident.

C’Mon Man…since when do we bust kids for burping (I could belch the alphabet when I was a kid…granted, I tried to refrain from doing it during class) and how is the insurance carrier who is presented with that claim going to respond?!  Good luck with that.
