'We ought to be embarrassed': Public outcry over 11-year-old handcuffed at gunpoint

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Grand Rapids residents - many of which have never met an 11-year-old girl handcuffed by police at gunpoint last week - implored the city commission Tuesday night to bring justice to the situation and to hold the police accountable.

"When a little girl has a grown man pointing a gun at her, and she's seen hundreds of black men and women get killed on the internet - do you not think she thought she could get killed?" said Deborah Jandle, a clinical social worker, to the city commission. "I hope you get sued."

Complaint Accuses DHS Of Increasingly Separating Families At The Border

Carlos Batres Aguilar refused to separate from his son after arriving at the US–Mexico border seeking asylum last November, despite days of pressure from immigration officials.

Days later, he said, on Nov. 16, an immigration official told him and a group of other fathers that he had orders to separate them. As Batres was taken out of a cell to identify his belongings, immigration officials took him and other fathers away from their kids. It was the last time he saw his 12-year-old son Dominic.

“They told us if we didn’t accept the rules they would take them by force,” Batres, who is from El Salvador, told BuzzFeed News. “I don’t understand why they’re treating us like this. It’s not like we committed a crime.”

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Most kids land in foster care due to child abuse or neglect, but some are there only because their parents can’t provide adequate housing. In other words, because they’re poor.
