Miami-Dade Police says officers were forced to throw a beach-going 14-year-old to the ground and forcibly restrain him because of clenched fists and "dehumanizing stares," as first reported by CBS Miami.
But Tremaine McMillian says he was merely walking along the beach on Memorial Day, feeding his puppy from a bottle, when police overreacted. Cell phone video shot by his mother shows the unarmed teen pressed to ground at Haulover Beach as one police officer holds his forearm across McMillian's throat and another places him in handcuffs.

Absolutely ridiculous if this is the full story on what happened. The police stated that the 'clenched fist' is considered an 'immediate threat.'
I swear, some of these stories I hear coming from Florida are so ludicrous they could be written by The Onion. Maybe its all that sun?
