Final arguments in trial against 12-year-old girl mistaken for hooker

Background: One morning a couple of years ago, Dymond was in her yard, resetting a circuit breaker at the request of her mother. Four plainclothes Galveston police officers were driving by in an unmarked van, responding to a call that three white prostitutes were working Milburn's neighborhood. The police spotted Dymond (who is black), jumped out of the van and announced that she was under arrest for prostitution. Dymond grabbed a tree and called for her father. The police officers allegedly beat Dymond so badly that she had to be hospitalized (for black eyes as well as throat and ear drum injuries).

Three weeks later, police showed up at Milburn's school and arrested her for assault. Hence, the trial against her.


WHYINHELL AM I ONLY FINDING OUT ABOUT THIS BULLSHIT NOW?!?!? FROM BOINGBOING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? WHERE THE FUCK IS THE OUTRAGE? WHERE THE FUCK IS THE PROTESTS? WHERE THE FUCK IS JESSE JACKSON?!?!

I need to step away from the computer. I'm seeing spots. Down, blood pressure! Down!
