New York Police Handcuff And Interrogate 7-Year-Old Boy Over $5 In Lunch Money
The family of a 7-year-old New York boy, Wilson Reyes,, is suing police and the city for $250 million, saying cops handcuffed and interrogated the boy for ten hours after a scuffle over lunch money at school.
Wilson Reyes is a student going to school in the Bronx. He reportedly got into a fight with another student over $5 of lunch money that had fallen on the ground in front of him. The Police were called on a complaint of assault and robbery involving the 9 year old. Reportedly at that point, the officers allegedly handcuffed and interrogated him for ten hours, according to the lawsuit.
Understandably, the boy’s parents are very upset, and are suing police and the city for $250 million. What do you think? Did the police go too far? Or, did they teach the kid a valuable lesson?
