Rochester, NY

Three African-American teenagers arrested and charged with disorderly conduct last week believe they were unfairly targeted by police.

The basketball players said they were waiting for a bus in Rochester, NY, to take them to a scrimmage when police asked them to leave the area. When 17-year-old Deaquon Carelock and 16-year-olds Raliek Redd and Wan’Tauhjs Weathers pushed back against the officer’s request, saying they were following instructions from their coach, police arrested them.

“You’re just downtown minding your own business and the next thing you know, anything can happen,” Carelock said in video captured by NBC station WHEC.

“We tried to tell them that we were waiting for the bus,” Weathers added. “We weren’t catching a city bus, we were catching a yellow bus. He didn’t care. He arrested us anyways.”

Police say the teens were obstructing pedestrian traffic and repeatedly ignored orders to disperse, according to a police report obtained by FOX station WROC. Police had been keeping an eye on the area after receiving complaints of loitering from a nearby store. The students’ coach said he had no reason to think they were causing trouble.

“My guys were waiting for the bus like they normally do,” Jacob Scott, the student’s basketball coach, said. “I get to the scene after parking my car and three of my guys are handcuffed.”

At that point Scott says he tried to explain to the officer that the students were simply following his instructions to wait for the ride to their scrimmage, prompting the officer to tell him he too might be arrested if he didn’t leave the area.

Of course I believe the story Deaquon Carelock, Raliek Redd and Wan’Tauhjs Weathers told. I am sure they were in no way standing in such a way as to hamper pedestrian traffic or blocking the entrance to shops.

With names like that, you really think there is NICS paperwork being filled out

The fact the officers  statement was left out speaks volumes..   My question is, what were they doing to draw the attention of the police in the first place.   We're they making piggy sounds?  Taunting with donuts?   Or maybe being loud and obnoxious  to others.   But who cares.  Only racism matters.

There were 16 yutes at the bus stop.  I wonder what the three that were arrested did to distinguish themselves.

Maybe they were playing basketball in the street and screwing around stopping traffic.

At that point (Coach) Scott says he tried to explain to the officer that the students were simply following his instructions to wait for the ride to their scrimmage, prompting the officer to tell him he too might be arrested if he didn’t leave the area.

“One of the police officers actually told me, if he had a big enough caravan, he would take all of us downtown,” Scott said, referring to himself and the other students waiting to attend the scrimmage on a day off from school.


Maybe they were the only ones short enough to fit in the patrol car.

Okay. Should have been cited and released. holding them as custodial arrests was stupid unless the offense was likely to continue.

Been there. Standing at a bus stop, wanting to catch a bus down to the repair shop. Big bus shelter, with "King County Metro" painted on it, a bus stop sign with bus info on it, and painted on the road in front of me: "Transit Only".

Cop drives by, turns around, comes back, stops in the " transit only" lane, gets out of his car, says "Good afternoon", and I gave a generic "Afternoon" reply, nodding my head, and was surprised when he asks "Waiting for a bus?"

It all went downhill from there as, apparently, busting out in laughter was a no no.

I'm guessing dude had trouble with the detective exam.

It only looks worse when they later drop all charges "in the interest of justice."

Athletic teens with lots of energy "doing nothing" can seem pretty disruptive to old folks.



If they had a ball and were messing around while waiting I could see two valid points of view on this.

The fact they were waiting for a bus is irrevelant.

If they were blocking a sidewalk and wouldn't move then its a good arrest.

As a general rule, when the cops say one thing and then do something which makes me question what they said (in this case, arresting the teens and then dropping charges) I'm inclined to think "wow, the cops fucked that one up, somehow."

ETA: I'm also inclined to feel the same way when a group of folks say "mah bebe didn't do nuffin" and the actors are later tried and found guilty of the "nuffin" they "didn't do."

It's a two way street.
