“You say the fight broke out after you tried to protect a seventh grader from someone you fought with who you said was a high school student,” Berman said, and asked Z’Kye “What happened?” happens next?”

“The police came over, an officer put his hand, he came, put me on the ground, put his knee on my back and started handcuffing me. Female officer? It was with the other boy, he walked away and helped me put the cuffs in there and put her knee on my back too,” the teenager explained.
