Parents Accuse Officer of Racially Profiling Boys

"He walked up with his gun and ordered us down on the ground in the mud," said 10-year-old Tony Simmons.

The boys said the cop asked them what was in 9-year-old Stephen's backpack. When the boy replied he had just school papers, the cop went through it and then tossed it on the ground, the boys said.

This happens more than it ever needs to, and there is no valid excuse for feeling threatened by very small boys in a residential neighborhood such as this.
They live there!
Have a read and watch the video and share your thoughts on this.
The gun really needed to be drawn?
What a wonderful way to let the kids know their safe in their own backyard!

It's truly sick, and was it an anonymous tip that said 3 black males broke into a house and/or people think it has to be these kids because they are black and they haven't had breakins before (I guess they haven't heard about this rotten economy yet have they). Something about this story and this neighborhood has me thinking that they have had issues with people in this neighborhood before.

Actually it was a "hunch" on the officers part.
He saw 3 young black males and deemed it a B&E.
A little bit of "work" on his part and none of this would have ever happened.
In this same town not long ago a younger female was tazered repeatedly even while cuffed. The Ossifer was suspended, fired, and hired back.
This once was a thriving community not more than 3 decades ago there were jobs and wealth.
Now young men like this have tumble weeds and false arrests to look forward to.

I bet we aren't getting the whole story.

I bet we won't either, somebody has already cried racism and thats the end of that officers career.

No, that's the whole story, it's pretty paranoid living in that part of Ohio currently. The kids are shoulder height.
Ossifer will desk sit for a little bit, but he'll be on patrol again by next week.
Keep your eye on Eastern Ohio, it's just about ready to crumble.

Just waiting for the usual crowd who defend the oinkers that do this kind of thing to show up...
