*Feb 05 - 00:05* Remember Alexa Gonzalez? She’s the 12-year-old girl who was forcefully taken out of her junior high school in handcuffs for doodling on her desk. Well, she’s RIGHTFULLY suing the Department of Education and the NYPD for excessive force and violating her rights. She is seeking $1 million in damages and according to legal papers, was treated like a criminal by school officials before the cops even arrived. Gonzalez claims she was “physically dragged by a teacher and an assistant principal” during the incident. |NYDN|
