OpposingViews – After being accused of taking $5 from another student in an after-school swipe, a 7-year-old Bronx boy was pulled out of his classroom and questioned for more than 10 hours. According to a $250 million claim that has been filed against the city and the NYPD, police handcuffed and held Wilson Reyes in a room at his school for four hours before taking him to the 44th Precinct station house for another six hours of interrogation and verbal abuse.
Umm did this kid lawyer-up? First rule when you go into the interrogation room, lawyer-up. Interview over. That’s street knowledge 101. You’d think at 7-years-old this kid would be all caught up on The Wire. Look, police are paid the big bucks to solve crimes. And 5 bucks is a crime. That’s 20 quarters! You know how much damage a 7-year-old could do with 20 quarters at an arcade. Time Crisis II for days. Pressing on the foot pedal. Getting the countdown after you lose, “Do You Want To Continue?” Of course I want to continue, I’m saving the world.
