What This Conference Was For: Cleveland Cops Body-Slam and Pepper-Spray Peaceful Black People

You Can't Make This Stuff Up Dept: Moments after hundreds of activists streamed out of the Movement for Black Lives Conference, Cleveland police body-slammed, arrested and handcuffed a 14-year-old boy - for allegedly being drunk, lacking a bus ticket or having an open Snapple - after which one out-of-control white cop randomly, viciously pepper-sprayed those protesting the arrest. One tweet: "Today what I saw is what this conference was meant for."
