Six-year-old Madisyn Moore, a student at Fernwood Elementary, took candy off of her teachers desk last week. That is when a security guard decided to teach her a lesson.
It was over an hour later when her mom was able to pick her up. Her mother, Marlena Wordlaw told NBC Chicago, “I said ‘why you have my baby in cuffs?’ He said, ‘because I’m trying to teach them to stop taking stuff that don’t belong to them’.”
Madisyn said, “They hurted. He snatched me out of my class. He made me get out in my handcuffs.” Wordlaw went on to say, “When he pulled her from under stairs she was crying. He told me ‘I‘m doing my job, I’m trying to teach her a lesson.’ I understand these teenage boys and whatever the case may be, yeah you can try to teach them a lesson but this is a little girl.”
The principal tried to apologize to Wordlaw, but Wordlaw said, “I don’t accept your apology ever.” Wordlaw added, “I’m more angry than anything, because it’s my only daughter. I feel like anything could have happened to her. Somebody could have touched her. She’s in the dark under the stairs.”
