Why, out of all the horrible things to absorb in this story, would we focus on one kid, briefly in chains after a protest? Either we respect the rights and dignity of everyone, or we do not. Either we see — and insist that our justice system see — people charged with crimes as human beings, or we do not. If we can treat children accused of minor offenses like caged animals, then we can ignore a man who says, "I can't breathe." It is a continuum of disdain.
