Three months ago, Victor Gabino Mendoza, a 17-year-old Des Moines high school student, heard a commotion in the parking lot of the building where he worked part time and went to see what was going on. He found police clashing with some people and asked what they were doing, according to his girlfriend’s uncle, Victor Torres. Apparently, he asked too many times or in the wrong way because he ended up under arrest himself, charged with interfering with official acts. He was jailed for a day and fined $250 plus court costs.

Had this happened to another young person, that might have been the end of it.
