Just weeks after the nation has shown their outrage over the police brutalization of a 14 year old girl in the McKinney, TX pool party incident, it looks like the boys in blue are at it again. This time it involves black teens and white police officers at a Fairfield, OH pool on June 9th. The incident resulted with 4 people being arrested including a 15 year old boy and a 12 year old girl, with the 12 year old girl sustaining fractured ribs and jaw from one of the officers, and the 15 year old sustaining injuries from another unidentified adult male. There are multiple videos that have surfaced from the incident leaving both sides defending their own positions in the situation, but I see no way how a 12 year old or a 15 year old should have to be brutalized by police for any reason when proper restraint techniques exist.
Krystal and Maya Dixon, two adults involved in the incident at the Fairfield pool, are scheduled to appear in court Wednesday on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct according to USA Today.
These are very interesting times we are living in, and we have to not only pay attention to whats going on, but also question this behavior, and demand action. If we continue to allow our children to be brutalized whether in the streets or by law enforcement we are seriously loosing.
