Short Description: 
Latoya Harris and daughter who was arrested at 9-yrs old by Portland police officers- update

On June 26 we first spoke with Latoya Harris who's daughter (9-years old at the time) was handcuffed at her home dressed only in a swimsuit - and days following a playground tiff that had long since been resolved. No case was ever brought, not by a DA, nor by our 'self-defeating police accountability system. I will speak with Latoya's and her daughter to update you on this ongoing story. Portland police Officer David McCarthy and Officer Matthew Huspek, who are assigned to a special police detail at New Columbia, have no business working with kids! Yet they and other Portland Police continue to target black boys and young men at the exact same time they launch their latest Project Cool Down--which specifically targets black teens for enhance police action--in violation of their civil rights and civil liberties. Unfortunatly, so far Latoya's story doesn't have a happy ending yet. Join us Thursday morning for an update on this example of police misconduct and retaliation by these officers.
