(News) More Police Overkill.....

An 11-year-old girl is being prosecuted on serious assault charges in California after she threw a rock at a group of boys who were pelting her with water balloons. She was arrested in an operation which involved three police cars and a helicopter. The girl, who is from a Spanish-speaking family and speaks little English, was kept in detention for five days and was allowed a single 30-minute visit from her parents.

Man that reeks of police brutality as well!
Honestly, how big a rock could it have been?
It was thrown by an 11 year old after all.

Can't be too careful with them 11 year olds, they scratch and bite and kick!
And besides, she might have been a terrorist! :O
