Police tell a different story. Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said it was just after 11am when officers apparently saw Tremaine body slamming another teenager onto the sand. Police reports say they then realised that no fight was going on, but Detective Zabaleta told CBS Miami that Tremaine refused to take officers to his parents and they were forced to leave their ATV to detain him as he started to leave the beach area. According to the police report, Tremaine became combative and clenched his fist as police went to hold him. ‘He attempted to pull his arm away, stating, “Man, don’t touch me like I did something,”’ the report ways. Detective Zabaleta said Tremaine’s actions indicated he was ‘resisting officers’ and meant he had to be taken into custody. ‘Of course we have to neutralize the threat,’ said the detective. ‘When you have somebody resistant to them and pulling away and somebody clenching their fists and flailing their arms, that’s a threat.’
Moment police choke a 14-year-old with puppy after he gave them ‘dehumanizing stare’ | Mail Online
So…police openly admit they slammed on the ground, choked, arrested, and charged with resisting arrest a 14-year-old playing on a beach with his friend and a 6-week-old puppy doing absolutely nothing wrong, and we’re supposed to believe they were neutralizing a serious threat? A threat to what exactly? A reality where black children are allowed to play on a public beach and it not be a problem?
There is a petition you can sign here to have the charges dropped. I can’t believe they haven’t been dropped already.
The hell is wrong with people?
