(NaturalNews) A young "special needs" boy from Queens, NY, recently bore the wrath of public school officials when he began acting up over a mismatched color on an Easter egg he was painting during class. Young Joseph Anderson asked for his mother, Jessica, after becoming visibly upset, and school officials proceeded to call her. But reports say that before Jessica was able to arrive at the school to pick up her son, officials had already called the police, who came and handcuffed Joseph, loaded him in an ambulance, and shipped him off to a psychiatric facility, claiming he was a "danger" to the other students.

A UK Daily Mail report states that the seven-year-old boy had previously been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and that he also speech problems and emotional issues that affected his moods. He had also had previous psychiatric evaluations over his behavior. But Joseph's mother insists he is not a threat, and that what the school did was over the top and highly inappropriate.

"Why handcuff him?" she is cited as asking. "Why get the cops involved? He's only seven."

She went on to add that Joseph is now petrified of ambulance noises, and that he runs and hides every time he hears them or sees a police officer. She also says Joseph is constantly wetting his pants, throwing up, and running to hide under his bed whenever these trigger events occur.

"He's really traumatized," said Jessica. "I don't let him watch the news any more, because if he sees cops, he cries. They (school officials) know that my son is special ed. It's like they're trying to get rid of him, and it worked because I'm not sending him back there."

Officials deny allegations that they acted inappropriately, and a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer defended the actions as well, claiming that the child was "acting in a threatening manner," and was a "danger to himself and others in the classroom."
