Police Response to New Jersey Mall Fight Sparks Outrage after Black Teen Cuffed as White Teen Watches

New Jersey police are under fire for their response to a fistfight after a Black eighth grader was pinned to the ground and handcuffed while a white teen involved in the weekend mall scuffle was left seated on a couch. The fight, which took place Saturday at Bridgewater Commons in Bridgewater Township, New Jersey, was captured on video and prompted a review of the officers’ conduct, as well as strong words from the governor.

I lean conservative, but I’m no extremist so when I see racism I’m going to call it out: this was racism.
