Re: cant quite see a problem with this....
From what the article says, it looks like the kid may have turned out to be innocent. It certainly doesn't state conclusively either way, and the most decisive thing it does say is that he was seen running from a car initially believed to have been stolen.
I think it's important to remember that this 16 year old boy was probably terrified for those unaccounted for 2 1/2 hours. Regardless of what he had or more likely hadn't done, what if it was your son? The punishment needs to fit the crime. Which of you honestly believes that what they did to a child who hadn't been proven guilty was justified?
I was caught in a police incident in France once. I was at a holiday resort where someone was subdued with some kind of pepper/chemical spray and some of it hit me. It was agony. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't open my eyes, I could do very little but sit on the ground with my face streaming. This kid had it sprayed in his eyes and had not been found guilty of any offence. Not good.
There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those that can read binary, and those who can't.
