HONOLULU — Honolulu police officers and officials with Hawaii’s public school system discriminated against a disabled Black child by handcuffing, arresting and interrogating the 10-year-old girl for a “run-of-the-mill” dispute between children, the American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii said.

This arrest once again reveals the underlining racism in “Paradise” The ACLU sent a letter to the Honolulu Police Department, the state Department of Education, and the state attorney general’s office demanding the statewide school district make policy changes, including forbidding staff from calling the police on a student unless the student presents an imminent threat of significant harm to someone.

The girl’s mother went to the school and was falsely imprisoned when school staff and police prevented her from leaving two rooms she was confined to, the letter said.

Police reforms were one of Biden’s promises, but so far, his administration has done nothing to mitigate the ongoing harassment and wanton killings of African Americans at the hands of white policemen and women.
