Unless you were at the disturbance when it occurred at LaCanne Park, it really must be hard to form an opinion about what happened. It seems to me that some 12 year-olds, black or white, are a lot taller now adays, and they seem a lot older as well.
I guess they could wear something saying, “I’m only 12,” or better yet, their birth date. Then, with a little rapid calculation, the officer could say, “No handcuffs today!”
I think it’s time to show a little respect both ways.
