A five-year-old boy was reportedly handcuffed and held in custody for five hours because he may have been ‘a threat to America’.The reason I'm calling bullshit is not because I believe some idiot is capable of wanting to handcuff a 5-year-p;d/ I believe that some people are stupid enough to try, but I don't believe that standard handcuffs will fit on someone with wrists as small as a 5-year-old.
The child was one of more than 100 people held at airports across the United States after Donald Trump signed an order banning travel from seven majority Muslim countries.
I have seen small women slip out of standard handcuffs, and I don't know any current manufacturer who makes handcuffs small enough for children.
Again, I don't doubt that TSA or someone else detained a 5-year-old. But, did they handcuff him? I doubt it. Standard handcuffs are too large for a 5-year-old.
