Annapolis Police Under Fire for Photographing Black Teens as Part of Investigation

The Annapolis Police Department is under fire for photographing black teens as part of an investigation after recent robberies in which two men were jumped by a group of black teens in the Clay Street area.

Police Chief Michael Pristoop said, “It’s very misleading to say we’re stopping anyone indiscriminately.” But residents beg to differ and several attended last night’s Annapolis City Council meeting to voice their concerns.

Tonya Booth, a Clay Street resident, said her son, who is a captain of his football team, was stopped and photographed, the Baltimore Sun reports. She said he told her he did not know what to do when the officers asked to take his photograph, the newspaper said.

Another resident, Robert Eades, said children are “underage” and that it was “racial profiling.”
