Handcuffs on a 5-year old

You have to see this to believe it. Here is the story with the video tapes.
A 5-year old girl in a kindergarten in St.-Petersburg (Florida) gets hand-cuffed by 3 police officers, after teachers and the principal can not calm her down.
To me, this is a typical situation of an emotional build-up in a child, which just passes if you give it a chance to calm down, by isolating her (a so-called time-out).
But to call in the police and have the child hand-cuffed, is beyond my (European) comprehension.
