The national reckoning over racism and police brutality following George Floyd’s death brought renewed criticism to Aurora police.
“You’re going to jail.” A video of police officers trying to handcuff an 8-year-old boy is drawing scrutiny.
“When it’s time, it’s time,” Chief Carmen Best wrote to the Seattle Police Department staff.
The 2018 arrest showed "how our educational and policing systems train children to be criminals by treating them like criminals," said lawyer Benjamin Crump.

A 17-year-old boy is dead and an off-duty police officer is fighting for her life at a hospital after multiple shooters opened fire, authorities said.
Max, a 2-year-old German shepherd, was "crucial" to finding a missing mother and her young son in Wales, the police inspector said.
Michael Brown, an 18-year-old Black man, was fatally shot in Ferguson, Missouri. The former police officer involved won't face charges.
When asked about viral videos showing cops escalating violence against protesters, police departments refused to name the officers or provide updates on their investigations.
Videos showed NYPD officers pulling a protester into an unmarked van during an anti-racism protest.
Critics say there's a quid pro quo at work when oil giants, utilities and their banks donate to secretive foundations that support police.
