    Resisting arrest

    The family of Dymond Milburn, alleges that two years ago, several plain-clothes officers jumped out of a van, accosted her in her yard, and assaulted and beat her during a raid in which they mistook her for a prostitute. She was 12 at the time. Three weeks later, the police then arrested Milburn at her school in front of her classmates, and charged her with assaulting the police officers who were wrongfully arresting her. Her father has also been charged with assault.

    Also, "The city has investigated the matter and found that the conduct of the police officers was appropriate under the circumstances." The Police Chief says, "The evidence will show that both these folks violated the law and forcefully resisted arrest."

    Anybody from Texas know more about this intriguing case? The links provide more interesting details.

    My take on this story is that I can't understand why the police charged the girl and her father. It makes no sense to me.

    Re: Resisting arrest

    You better believe that if guys jumped out of a van and grabbed my 12 year old daughter, there'd be plenty of assault to go around.

    I read about this the other day and I don't get it. Doesn't someone, somewhere in a position of authority within their local government realize that they screwed up big time?

    Re: Resisting arrest

    To be fair there's a decent chance she'll be a prostitute in the future with a name like Dymond, so I'll give them a pass.
