NAACP Urges Justice Department to Probe Miami Gardens Police Action

The NAACP in Florida is asking the Justice Department to investigate an unusual number of arrests at a convenience store in Miami Gardens, CBS Miami reports.

Civil rights leaders are concerned about numerous arrests following police activity at the 207 Quickstop.

One employee, for example, was cited for trespassing more than 60 times despite working at the store, CBS Miami wrote.

“The citizens are outraged. So many complaints have been rolling in about how they’re being treated.We know there is a lot of crime in Miami Gardens. We are not  supporting criminals. This is not that point at all. This is about ensuring that those who are law-abiding citizens are not abused. Even if they are criminals, there is a way to deal with criminals,” said Adora Obi Nweze, president of the NAACP Florida State Conference.

An officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said police are stopping people only to meet quotas.
