Legal recourse for children physically and verbally abused by police. There is a stupid comment that I want to address. Let's take the premise[not necessarily true] that these children's parents were bad parents. Does that give the police the right to abuse children because they think their parents are bad parents? And how would the police know who is a good parent and who is a bad parent? If a child's parent is a secret sexual abuser[i.e. a bad parent] should we hit the kid in the face?

I don't think alternative school automatically means bad parent, BTW, but even if it did, why not help them with parenting rather than having the police hit their kids?
