Walking out the door
Cops siren and loud screams
Fill the air with the smell of weed
Blunts, and rice and beans

People in uniform scream
At civilians
Pushing people aside
People faces blush red with anger
Building up inside

A child defends her mother
With one swing of an arm
A fight breaks out
14 year old hispanic girl
And an unprofessional brown
Female Officer

Phones taken out
Scene being recorded
Officer calls for backup
Block fills with several cop cars

No later than
Two minutes
Mother and daughter gripped up
Arrested.

Chatter and cries
From babies
Is all you hear
Fear
Confusion
In the crowds eyes.
