The police arrest innocent people every day.
In September of my 4th-grade year, a cop arrested me after school because I looked like a college student suspected of committing an assault in a nearby park. After an hour in the police car without a running air conditioner, one of the witnesses looked through the windscreen and said, “I said college kid, you idiot”. The cop took his sweet time to let me go because he refused to believe I didn’t have a government-issued identification card.
Wrongful arrests and wrongful convictions exist because of poor training, racially biased investigations, and the assumption of infallibility. The police and prosecutors are rarely held accountable for their mistakes and malicious acts. What happened to me that hot September afternoon could happen to anyone. The system will not protect us automatically. Demand justice to get justice.
