Original Headline: Miami-Dade Police Choke Black Teenager Because He Was Giving Them "Dehumanizing Stares"

Fourteen-year-old Tremaine McMillian didn't threaten police. He didn't attack them. He wasn't armed. All the black teenager did was appear threatening by shooting Miami-Dade police officers a few "dehumanizing stares," and that was apparently enough for the officers to decide to slam him against the ground and put him in a chokehold.

During Memorial Day weekend, McMillian was rough-housing with another teenager on the sand. Police approached the teen on an ATV and told him that wasn't acceptable behavior. They asked him where his parents were, but MicMillian attempted to walk away. The officer jumped off the ATV, and tried to physically restrain the teen. According to CBS Miami, police say the 14-year-old kid gave them "'dehumanizing stares,' clenched his fists and appeared threatening."

McMillian says he was carrying a six-week old puppy at the time and couldn't have been clenching his fists because he was feeding the dog with a bottle. He claims that during the confrontation the dog's front left paw was injured while officer forcibly separated him from the dog.

The officer then forced McMillian to the ground and put him in a choke hold.

The incident was caught on a cell phone video and obtained by CBS Miami.

Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta told CBS Miami that McMillian tried to pull away, so that constituted a "threat." The teen was charged with a felony count of resisting arrest with violence and disorderly conduct. Zabaleta claims with a straight face that flailing one's arms and clenching one's fists constitutes a threat, and is not swayed by McMillian's insistence that all he was doing with his arms were carrying a puppy.

"At that point we are not concerned with a puppy," Zabaleta told the station. "We are concerned with the threat to the officer."

Wait....was this an ASSAULT puppy?
Was this assault puppy purchased legally, or stolen?
Did this child have a license to carry the assault puppy?

Do boys REALLY need assault puppies?
That old "boy and his dog" thing is SO last century.
Does anyone REALLY need assault puppies in their home?
On the street, for heaven's sake? With innocent people around?

BAN ASSAULT PUPPIES!
Register, confiscate, euthanize!

What would make a puppy an assault puppy, you ask?
Don't be silly. An assault puppy is obviously a puppy who looks scary to someone who dislikes dogs in general...as long as their owners aren't law enforcement officers.

This police department is taking the wrong tactic to defend their actions.
They need to focus on EVIL ASSAULT PUPPIES!
Right?
