Brickbat: Eh, He's Close Enough


Kansas City police have agreed to pay $900,000. to settle a suit brought by Tyree, 15-year-old, in 2016. He was being held for three consecutive weeks on charges he didn’t commit. Officers responded to a report that three black men were sitting on a corner carrying guns. Officers arrived and one suspect fled. He ran away, and officers chased him. They saw Bell shortly after and pulled him over. They took Bell into custody for a 24 hour “investigative stay” despite the fact that he was longer than the suspect and was wearing a different style of hair. He was eventually released after being held for 24 hours.
