Murfreesboro, Tennessee, police are refusing to say exactly how many students they handcuffed and arrested at a local elementary school or exactly what the children are charged with. But parents say at least 10 children, ages 8 through 11, were arrested for "criminal responsibility for conduct of another." They say their children were arrested for not breaking up a fight that happened off school grounds several days before the arrests.
