Why 9-Year-Old Boy With Autism Got Arrested at School

More from Inside Edition: https://www.youtube.com/user/cbstvdinsideedition?sub_confirmation=1
The parents of the 9-year-old who was arrested in August after fighting another student and striking a teacher are speaking out. Cops were called after fourth grader Devin Shepherd got into a fight with a classmate during recess at Needham Elementary School in Franklin, Ind. When a teacher intervened, Devin hit the teacher. The boy’s father recorded the heartbreaking scene. “Just chill out buddy. You’re leaving with me. I promise you,” the father told his son as he was being arrested. #InsideEdition

    what did the bully het lets overlook the normal people not the autistic boy this world is so screwed up

  4. Smog town on September 9, 2022 at 3:41 am

    Disgusting, they should be arresting the bully to teach him or her a lesson about bullying and how wrong it can be, and what bullying can end up doing to those whom don’t deserve it like suicide.. The teacher should also be fired and blacklisted from working as a teacher or at a school or with children to begin with!

    This happens nowhere else in the western world. America isn’t the greatest country in the world. Pull your head out of your asses.

  6. C. on September 9, 2022 at 3:41 am

    They better sue that school and get him out of there. Fing teacher.

  7. Mitch Colburn on September 9, 2022 at 3:43 am

    As an autistic person myself I have no sympathy for the little bastard. He hit the damn teacher for God’s sakes, he should have to face the consequences for his actions.

    This is retarded, what were they thinking

  9. Jack Black on September 9, 2022 at 3:45 am

    Bastard Cops.

  10. Abhiram Badugu on September 9, 2022 at 3:46 am

    I do not get it why did other kid not get arrested this is what happens when your playing football and you argue with your coach

  11. Lunalgaleo on September 9, 2022 at 3:48 am

    Glad the dad understood his son wasn’t at fault. Poor kid…

  12. Raman Preciado on September 9, 2022 at 3:48 am

    I literally thought this was just a joke and the dad set it up. I think there could been a better punishment then this kind of trauma for a kid with autism. Even I, a person who supports corporate punishment, knows this is too far.

  13. Prince Inquisiki on September 9, 2022 at 3:52 am

    He’s only 9 years old and he’s autistic! Why the hell he needs to be arrested?! This has gone way too far! The teacher deserved to be fired not now what it had done! Arresting this younger student with autism is a violation against human rights! This isn’t the oldest century anymore and people should know that but then they started to continue on being such incredibly thoughtless monsters! This is injustice, irresponsible and ablest! I too am a person with special needs who was highly offended watching this was so traumatizing, heartless and sickening! Just because he is autistic doesn’t really mean it is his fault! Please release the boy now!!😡

  14. Biskitss on September 9, 2022 at 3:53 am

    real

  15. Nijonibi on September 9, 2022 at 3:54 am

    Both him and the bully should have spent a night in a holding cell, give them a taste of what’s to come if they don’t smarten up.

  16. PIXEL THE ALIEN on September 9, 2022 at 3:55 am

    Bet that kid was traumatized after this happened. So sad how people with Autism get treated now and days.

  17. Potato wifi on September 9, 2022 at 3:55 am

    Thats why cops r pigs…

  18. JepJep on September 9, 2022 at 3:56 am

    When you decide to stand up for yourself but get yourself more on trouble

  19. itzAnthony on September 9, 2022 at 3:58 am

    I would switch places with the boy if i could.

  20. Lilbugslife on September 9, 2022 at 3:58 am

    I hope there were repercussions to this. It’s been 4 years but I never seen anything about it

  21. Srinidhi Tamma on September 9, 2022 at 3:58 am

    yo how is the dad talking so calm

  22. Zayan Islam on September 9, 2022 at 4:00 am

    And yet we get annoyed when kids complain about school.

  23. Michael Horio on September 9, 2022 at 4:01 am

    that is so bad for the kid got arrested.

  24. Brenda Bean on September 9, 2022 at 4:04 am

    This is horrible that teacher should be fired

  25. jimmy cricket on September 9, 2022 at 4:04 am

    Cops should be ashamed of cuffing a little kid. But they’re merely embarrassed that it was filmed.

  26. Tamara Albert on September 9, 2022 at 4:06 am

    That teacher should have been fired

  27. JOSEPH Fuentes on September 9, 2022 at 4:07 am

    That’s stupid

  28. Hi friends on September 9, 2022 at 4:07 am

    Just because he want on a faith with a kid and hit a tsher dosing mean he haves to go to jufy

  29. TheRamblingArtist on September 9, 2022 at 4:08 am

    Teachers when a kid gets bullied: nothing serious going on

    Teachers when the kid defends themselves: oh now im concerned

  30. Katherine Solomon on September 9, 2022 at 4:08 am

    Looks like my son Riley in the video and some sick looking neanderthal in the picture

  31. nBright on September 9, 2022 at 4:09 am

    i wonder how he took a shower at prison

  32. J on September 9, 2022 at 4:11 am

    Wow can’t believe this. The school could have handle the situation differently.

  33. Alison Gameson on September 9, 2022 at 4:12 am

    Wtaf!!!

  34. Jesse VC-S on September 9, 2022 at 4:12 am

    That school is soft af. Teachers soft as hell

  35. burnt toast on September 9, 2022 at 4:12 am

    This needs to stop

  36. Amith Vardhan on September 9, 2022 at 4:16 am

    Another disadvantage of school police in US. They keep criminalizing small fights that happen in schools. Instead of tightening gun laws, US recruits more and more police to schools to prevent violence, which is incredibly stupid…

  37. Pichu on September 9, 2022 at 4:19 am

    Why the HELL did my video glitch at 0:39

  38. Cheese on September 9, 2022 at 4:22 am

    This is just wrong af

  39. Toast_Gh0st on September 9, 2022 at 4:25 am

    And we all know the teachers wouldn’t have bat an eye to the bully no matter what, but the second the victim punches the teacher that’s really when it matter huh 🤨

  40. Gabriel So on September 9, 2022 at 4:27 am

    Bruh the bully did not get in trouble??!

  41. ZaneGrey- 021 on September 9, 2022 at 4:29 am

    This video shows that our country is really messed up when the victim of bullying goes to jail and the bully gets away with no punishment, minus well give the bully a medal and a handshake cause that’s basically what they’re doing here…

    I think the school systems should do better at watching for bullying instead of calling the cops and questioning your actions later

  42. John Palmisano on September 9, 2022 at 4:30 am

    Disgusting

  43. A J on September 9, 2022 at 4:31 am

    Cops who act like this should have the same exact thing (humiliation), done to them.

    Too many cops think that everything can be handled with a manhandling (or childhandling), arrest, beating or killing.
    If we use the same logic on them, do you think they would allow that? Pfffffffft.

  44. Owen Gasa on September 9, 2022 at 4:31 am

    That’s wrong why he go to prison he just a little boy

  45. Boltz01 on September 9, 2022 at 4:32 am

    Lol. Only in America.

  46. e X e on September 9, 2022 at 4:32 am

    I don’t know laws that well or shi but i don’t think hitting your teacher will get you arrested especially at a young age were kids will sometimes lash out or sum

  47. Dave Bailey on September 9, 2022 at 4:33 am

    Fake

  48. Seth Black on September 9, 2022 at 4:34 am

    Police love kicking you when you’re down. I got bullied for 3 years from 9-12. I fought back against my bully & the cops lied on the police report & had me put away for 3 years at a place 2 hour drive away from my family. The staff at the facilities were violent & Minor Attacted Persons.

  49. Three60radio on September 9, 2022 at 4:34 am

    Why didn’t these cops arrest ANTIFA during the riots ???
