The lawsuit claims a Chicago police officer shot an unarmed 13-year-old Black boy in the back while he was trying to comply.
15-year-old Martell Williams said police in Waukegan, Illinois, arrested him at school and coerced him into a false confession for attempted murder. He also said a cop offered him McDonald's in exchange for his confession.
On Friday, Black teenage college student Alhaji M. Sow was shot and killed by police on the campus of his school, the Florida Institute of Technology. Melbourne police claim the 18-year-old was "wielding a knife in a threatening manner" and “assaulting students."
A Black teen was left "traumatized" after a half dozen police officers racially profiled him while he was walking home from school, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him "soley due to his race," according to a lawsuit filed in Kentucky.
