Asian-American teen sues police department in Fort Lee, NJ for racist mistreatment.
Trigger warning: police brutality.
According to the complaint, Kim, then 17, was one of about a dozen minors transported to police headquarters after officers broke up a loud house party. The minors were not advised of their Miranda rights or told why they were being arrested, the complaint states.
The Korean American plaintiff alleges that the officers ‘displayed a pattern of racial bias and/or indifference’ by using a racial slur to reference Asian-Americans.
Upon arriving at police headquarters, some of the teens were led inside the building. The remaining handful - mostly of Asian descent, and all of whom had their cellphones confiscated - were kept locked in the van and weren’t acknowledged when two officers returned to the vehicle later to respond to a couple of calls before they took the van back to police headquarters, the suit said.
Kim and the others were left inside the vehicle for 15 hours in below-freezing temperatures without food, water or toilet facilities, the complaint stated.
This story is totally disgusting.
