Sometimes Plan But Sometimes Wing It

Cuffed for doodling on school desk

Yet another reason among the 15,090 annually that I’m joining the CUNY Law Chapter of the Suspension Representation Project:

Rachel Monahan, Cuffed For Doodling on a Desk, N.Y. Daily News, Feb. 5, 2010, at 4.

Alexa Gonzalez, a student Junior High School 190 in Forest Hills, Queens, was handcuffed and detained at police precinct for doodling on her desk with erasable marker.

A 12-year-old Queens girl was hauled out of school in handcuffs for an artless offense – doodling her name on her desk in erasable marker, the Daily News has learned.

Alexa Gonzalez was scribbling a few words on her desk Monday while waiting for her Spanish teacher to pass out homework at Junior High School 190 in Forest Hills, she said.

“I love my friends Abby and Faith,” the girl wrote, adding the phrases “Lex was here. 2/1/10″ and a smiley face.
