Police bodycam footage has emerged of the moment a six-year-old girl was escorted from her elementary school in Florida by a group of cops before being committed to a mental health facility without her parents’ permission because she had a ‘tantrum’.
On February 4, six-year-old Nadia Falk was taken to a mental health facility without her mother’s permission after staff at Love Grove Elementary School called social workers claiming the girl, who has ADHD and a personality disorder, was throwing things and harming staff.
The article goes on to state the following:
Nadia was taken to a mental health facility where she was sedated and held for 48 hours without seeing her mother, Martina.
According to the report, police officers were sympathetic to the child, and later questioned why they had been called.
