Peaceful Miami Fans flocking into AA Arena for a family-friendly fun evening of playoff basketball.
As we who practice criminal law in Miami know, there is "felonious staring" and "misdemeanor staring" although the distinction is sometimes a bit murky, especially to laymen. The result however is predictable: the police will beat your ass.
Such was the case covered by the Miami New Times here:
Fourteen-year-old Tremaine McMillian didn't threaten police. He didn't attack them. He wasn't armed. All the black teenager did was appear threatening by shooting Miami-Dade police officers a few "dehumanizing stares," and that was apparently enough for the officers to decide to slam him against the ground and put him in a chokehold.
