Take the Trick and get the treatment!
HAZLEHURST, MS (WLBT) – A Copiah county couple is outraged that a night of Halloween fun ended with bailing their teenage daughter out of jail.
They accuse Hazlehurst police of harassment and singling out the children in their neighborhood.
The Halloween Haunted House and birthday party at a Hazlehurst home on Haley Street ended Saturday evening when Donald and Rachel Davis said their daughter was arrested.
Eighteen year old Rosecynthia Davis said she had taken her 11-year-old brother Donald and other children trick or treating around the corner when several police cars surrounded them.
The Hazlehurst High School senior said most of the children in the group ran.
She said she questioned the officer and started calling her mother on her cell phone.
"Why are you stopping us? And she was like cause ‘I got a complaint about y’all throwing eggs’. We didn’t even have no eggs. So why you picking on us? Everybody else was walking around. It was just a whole group of us," said Rosecynthia Davis.
Her 40 year old mother said her son was also hit by an officer
Animal Murder or?
The animal rescue group that owned the dog shot and killed by a police officer at the Adams Morgan Day festival in September has filed a report with the D.C. Office of Police Complaints.
The group, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, says in the complaint that it has 11 eyewitnesses who support the group’s version of events — that Officer Scott Fike unjustifiably threw and shot Parrot, a pit bull and terrier mix.
D.C. police have maintained that the dog was aggressive and the shooting was justified.
The shooting took place amid a crowd at the festival.
Veterinary records included in the complaint describe Parrot as "friendly."

Jack Booted Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, at it again!
Phoenix civil rights activist Salvador Reza filed suit two days ago in federal court against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and several high-ranking Arpaio henchmen over Reza’s false arrest on July 30 by a pack of MCSO thugs.
Reza and his lawyer Stephen Montoya held a press conference in Montoya’s offices today to announce the claim for damages regarding, "the violation of Salvador Reza’s rights to freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of association, freedom of movement, and due process under the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States."
Reza’s seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages for his wrongful arrest and imprisonment by the organization he’s criticized so fiercely over the years.
The leader of the pro-immigrant group Puente had been arrested July 29 for an act of civil disobedience at the Fourth Avenue Jail protesting SB 1070, along with numerous other demonstrators.
The MCSO asserted that by showing up across the street from its headquarters for an anti-immigrant sweep on July 30, Reza had violated the terms of his release and was subject to re-arrest. ? who does this Nazi think he is?
