Doesn't this seem a bit extreme?

Doesn't this seem a bit extreme? Especially the way they treated these three people? My family members alerted me to this news article earlier today and I just had the opportunity to read it. I'm sitting here shaking my head. I can understand caution but not the roughness with which they were treated or listened to.

    But to be rough with a 13 year old girl? I don't know. I understand there's two sides of the story but I don't agree with how they were treated at all as a mother to three teens. And the teacher had a signed and notarized letter which appears to have been ignored.
