14 y/o Pepper Sprayed Sparks Police Brutality Protests In Cleveland

In the video above you can see the very high tensions in Cleveland today (July 26th, 2015) as police brutality protestors have taken to the streets to call attention to the most recent case of abuse.

As ‘The Movement For Black Lives Convention’ was being held at Cleveland State University, police responded to a 14-year-old boy with an open container at a bus stop across the street. In making the arrest, the cops slammed the boy to the ground and used pepper spray on him. It didn’t take long for conventioneers to begin pouring out to the scene of the incident and begin protesting the brutality shown a 14-year-old boy for a mere open container of beer.

The police then began to purposelessly pepper spray several of the gathered, causing a quick escalation. Arrests have also been made of people connected to the #blacklivesmatter movement who were peacefully protesting this newest violation of citizens.

The 14-year-old boy was treated for the pepper spray and has been released into the custody of his parents.

A number of incidents have made Cleveland a hot spot for criticism of police corruption, misconduct, brutality and killing. As new situations continue to be piled on, the city is becoming a powder keg just waiting for a match. That match could come any time as the CPD does not seem to be learning its lesson. Compared to some of the higher profile police misconduct cases there, the most recent abuse is not as big a deal. Yet the straw that breaks the camels back might be the lightest one in the stack.
