Video of handcuffed black teens sparks police probe

Source: NBC News

Minneapolis park police on Thursday were investigating the validity of a 911 call that led to the handcuffing of four black teenage boys after witnesses in a viral video said the youth were actually the victims of racial slurs.

. . .

Park police first arrived to the scene at the Minnehaha Falls when an unidentified woman called 911 around 7:30 p.m. CT (8:30 p.m. ET) Tuesday to claim the teens were carrying knives, sticks and a gun, and assaulted her boyfriend, officials said in a statement.

When officers arrived, one of them aimed his firearm in the direction of the boys, police said. The teens two of them 13, and the others 14 and 16 were then placed in handcuffs and detained. Police said they found no weapons on them.

. . .

A Facebook post of the handcuffing includes photos and a video that has since garnered more than 1 million views. The woman who posted the video wrote that the teens were being harassed by "a young white guy, who appeared to be around 17 years old. He was spouting racial slurs at them and aggressing them with a metal trash can lid and saying he had a knife."

1. Clearly it needs to be investigated and if the evidence does not support the callers claim then

the caller needs to be found, arrested and charged.

2. rawstory story has boys as younger----

Reading their account, one could believe it was a concerted ploy by the white teen couple--boy starts yelling at black boys and girl calls cops claiming fear for boyfriend.
