(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.
