Racial unrest and blatant racism are more predominant than ever, especially in cities like Cleveland, at the Movement for Black Lives Conference. The more we try to emphasize the injustice by demonstrating on behalf of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the more the police seem to make it more urgent that we need reform.
As the conference was winding down, people outside the event saw something pretty unsettling and took action. Here's what caused the recent unrest in Cleveland earlier today:

They arrested a fourteen year old child because he didn't have bus fare. Wow.
We are holding the street because Cleveland PD has a 14 year old child. They have released him in EMT custody. #M4BL

The police did finally release the fourteen year old suspect, and here is the tweet and video of the crowd cheering them on.

Just another day in the United States of Police Brutality.
