A 14-year old, a dehumanizing stare and police response

Here is the report of what happened over Memorial Day weekend when a young man was accused of giving officers a dehumanizing stare

The Miami-Dade police department is facing criticism after reportedly restraining a 14-year-old boy and slamming him to the ground for giving them "dehumanizing stares." When officers confronted Tremaine McMillian on the beach on Memorial Day for allegedly slamming another teen into the sand, he says that he walked away. The cops considered that to be resisting arrest and in their words had to "neutralize the threat" by tackling him. Although the officers say McMillian clenched his fists and flailed his arms, he says that was impossible because he was holding his 6-week-old puppy with one hand and bottle-feeding him with the other. McMillian is facing felony charges of resisting arrest with violence.

Here is a link to the article and an associated video.

If you look at this report, it says that the 14-year old was holding a puppy and a bottle and had been playing with a friend. Not in a fight the police officers were concerned about:

That really sucks. I mean, if he was holding a gun it's one thing. But he was an innocent child with a puppy! Really...

After 20 years in the cop business...I only believe something that I can see "completely"....
We never know what happened before the vid started.....

Sadly, it seems that cops only arrest innocent people.....
Folks should just stop calling them for anything...<sarcasm>...)
