PARIS, IL. (ECWd) –
The Associated Press recently published an article entitled “Tiny wrists in cuffs: How police use force against children” – within that article is an account from Paris, Illinois involving the Paris Police Department and a child riding a bicycle.

There is a new federal lawsuit, filed in July of 2021, on the same incident after the attorneys learned, through depositions, of constitutional violations of the officers involved.
