And if you just scare a kid as you describe, the parents can sue the living sh*t out of you and the city. Not to mention that, in many inner-city areas, being arrested or going to jail is a status symbol.

Yes you can get a conviction it depends on how many times they have been arressted and if they are a problem child.an 8 or 9 year child wont be in Juvie but they will put them in a detention center. But an 11 or 12 year old can be charged with a crime.
But the point is not to lock them up.Have you ever been around children? Calling the police on small children is enough to scare them.Most of the time you dont have to take them to a detention center or to juvie.You can pretend like you are and put the cuffs on them and let them set in the back of the patrol car for awhile.Most 8 years would be terrified by this

Yeah it might be a staus symbol a 12 or 13 year old but not an 8or 9 year old.My nephews friend got in trouble for throwing rocks at a neighbors car.and the police was called and the mother allowed them to handuff him and put him in the back of the car.You should have seen the tears rolling down his face he was terrified.He really thought he was going to jail.They eventually let him go after they let him sweat in the backseat for awhile.heis now 14 and has not been in trouble since then.And yes he lives in the "inner city"
