Protest at Your Own Peril: New Report Details Baton Rouge Police Mistreatment of Locked Up Alton Sterling Protesters

Andrea Armstrong

Participating in a civil rights march in 2016 shouldn’t result in being jailed in inhumane conditions, denied medical care, and deliberately humiliated. But that is exactly what happened in Baton Rouge, Louisiana last July and it bears an uncanny resemblance to the treatment of those fighting for civil rights over half a century ago.

17 year old detached from her mother and was terrified to spend the night at an adult prison. Ridiculous. She is nearly an adult and could be bigger and stronger than other adults in the cell. Should not be mentioned.

It detracts from the article. Hyperbole..

Looks like Louisiana figured out how to "make America great again" even before Trump got elected.

After a century and a half of being dragged down by them, can we at last let these southern states secede and be rid of them ?

I only see one non-violent response.....SUE the sh!t out of them.

And we wave our flags proudly? Allowing government employees to behave like monsters and giving them free rein to inflict pain and humiliation on human beings means that our government is corrupted from top to bottom. Somebody in a position of authority should be outraged and doing something about it!

Crap like this also happened in Morton County, ND, to the water protectors at Standing Rock.
The latest trick (in Morton Co.) is dismissing current charges and trumping up new ones, creating a new warrant, with new charges, in many cases often without the person 'charged' even knowing about them.

The behavior of jail wardens and police are rightly called out for chilling civil protest.
