A video of a 6-year-old girl's arrest for misbehaving in school went viral on the internet. Netizens were disturbed.

A girl can be seen little profusely crying and pleading the officer to not arrest her in the viral video. She is begging for a second chance in the video. One can heard her while crying and saying "Help me", "I don't want to go in the police car."

In Orlando, Florida in September 2019, the girl was arrested for 'kicking and punching staff members at her Orlando charter school,' according to Associated Press. The family decided to release the footage as family's lawyers obtained the footage in February.

An Orlando school security officer Dennis Turner, who got the girl arrested has recorded the video on a bodycam. The school said that the girl had been misbehaving in class while Turner decided to have her arrested.


A user name "Kerry" has shared this video on micro-blogging site Twitter with this caption:

Orlando police arrested a 6-YEAR-OLD Black girl for "throwing a tantrum" in her first-grade class.

She was handcuffed, put in the back of a cop car, then fingerprinted and taken in for a mug shot.

Don't look away. This is what black kids go through in America.

The video is shared and circulated on social media platforms and has raised several concerns.

People are disturbed with the little girl's arrest.

A user commented:

"Atrocious!! Poor little girl, this will probably stay with her for the rest of her life. My Granddaughter is six, it breaks my heart! Children act as children do. I hope this man regrets this & his previous actions for the rest of his life."

Another user said:

"This trauma will be very difficult to overcome. This child may never trust law enforcement and judicial system ever again."

A comment read:

"Oh my word!!! Poor little girl!! This is so distressing to watch. I hate to think how much more distressing it was for the little girl. I swear they'd be arresting me if I'd have been there when it happened."

In the end, Orlando Police has dismissed the officer who got the girl arrested. Officials said that he violated policy as he did not receive his supervisor's approval to arrest the little girl.
