Two Innocent Teens Held In Cuffs


A young man was stopped by Lt. Johnson on Mayson Ave near Hardee St, suspected of committing a robbery.  When the young man exercised his constitutional right to remain silent, Lt. Johnson responded by cuffing him and driving him away in a squad car.  Johnson was heard saying "You don't want to talk, so we have to go talk to the people who said they saw you."

He was transported several blocks away and held along with another young man for about an hour.  Eventually both were released when witnesses said that neither of them had committed the crime.
