According to Cleveland.com, the activist group gathered at Cleveland State University this weekend to draw attention to police brutality and racial disparities in American society and within the criminal justice system.
Crooks and Liars reported that a protest erupted when police violently arrested a 14-year-old boy for not having a bus ticket.
He was later released, but not before marchers were arrested and manhandled by police.
