Cops Interrogate 7-Year-Old Bronx Boy For Hours Over Missing $5 in School

New York's finest


This kid was no killer — but some callous Bronx cops sure treated him like one.

Instead of earning himself a simple trip to the principal's office, a terrified 7-year-old boy was hauled out of class, handcuffed like a hardened criminal and "interrogated" by police for a grueling 10 hours — all over a playground dispute involving $5, his family is charging.
