second hand…

12Mar03

a week later than it actually happened, boingboing helped me stumble across pictures of high school kids getting arrested on market st. for protesting. i think i had heard something about this happening because i remember hearing about some kids from G.W. in trouble, but i didn’t realize this was what it was for. while i realize that the cops have duty to clear these kids out from blocking traffic, i hope they didn’t actually arrest the kids. unlike the original author, i don’t believe putting these kids in zip cuffs means the police force is corrupt (and the whole fajita thing is FAR worse). however the thing that shocks me is the sheer number of cops to kids. there’s easily 5 cops / kid there. a ratio like this at another SF high school “incident” actually caused a riot. glad these kids had other things on their mind.
