Mother Describes Arrest of Her Young Daughter

Written by Mike Turner on May 7, 2014

Latoya Harris told the Citizen Review Committee her nine year old daughter was handcuffed, arrested and drove downtown for fighting with another girl.

Harris is suing the Portland Police Department for the action taken by two officers a year ago. Harris said she complained but nothing was done.

An Internal Affairs Captain admitted at the meeting there was a gap in policy.

The bureau has posted its youth custody policy on line and is taking citizen input before deciding whether or not to make changes.

    The kid is an up and coming thug. She needed a wake up call. It is not acceptable to smash another persons face into a wall for any reason.
