4 Black Teens Detained For Selling Water At National Mall Were Treated Like A Criminals

According to a report by huffpost, four young black men were handcuffed by undercover police Thursday for selling water on the grounds of the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The reports identified one Tim Krepp, a tour guide at the mall, told HuffPost he had just finished his shift when he saw the young men being detained by plainclothes park policemen. 

Krepp, who has been a tour guide for nearly 11 years, said that he has seen young boys and girls selling water “all the time” but has never witnessed anyone be detained by police as a result. He said seeing the young men sitting handcuffed on the ground and being searched by the cops immediately struck him.

“We want quality, community policing ― we want it to work well and that wasn’t what I saw,” he said.
