On a daily basis, Black men, women, and kids are harassed by white policemen. It has become so apparent that they makeup laws and in most cases invoke laws that no one has ever heard of.  A group of white policemen in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, stopped a group of African American teens riding their bikes, video shows. One of the teens was seen in the video being aggressively handcuffed as cops seized his bike. According to these white policemen,  the teens needed licenses to ride their bikes in the streets.

What license do kids need to show before riding bikes in front of their homes?

The video footage shows the situation between police officers and the teens escalated, and one officer can be seen ordering other cops to confiscate the bikes.

One of the teens refused to give officers his bike and was put in handcuffs, the video shows. He was taken into custody, but he was later released. This is not an isolated incidence and young black kids are targets of white police harassment across the nation.

Amol Sinha, the executive director of the ACLU New Jersey, meanwhile, voiced outrage over the video.

“Are the police really arresting kids over bike registrations?
