    Arrested While Grieving

    "Children as young as 13 were among those swept up by the cops. Two of them, including 16-year-old Lamel Carter, were the children of police officers. Some of the youngsters were carrying notes from school saying that they were allowed to be absent to attend the wake....Some of the kids were told at the scene that they were being seized because they had assembled unlawfully....Many of the kids were wearing white T-shirts with a picture of the dead teenager and the letters 'R.I.P.' on them. The cops cited the T-shirts as evidence of gang membership. Thirty-two of the youngsters were arrested."

    Welcom to life in Amerika under an increasingly militarized police force.
