Excerpt from NBC News. Every year, throngs of youths descend upon San Francisco’s Mission District for a skateboarding event, but this year festivities ended in chaos with police arresting over 100 young people.
A group of teenagers are suing over San Francisco’s police crackdown on the Dolores Park Hill Bomb, a yearly skating event that this past summer led to mass arrests of more than 100 people—most of them children.
Parents said they would sue over July’s draconian mass arrest of 117 people (83 of them minors) during this year’s Dolores Hill Bomb skateboarding meetup, and that lawsuit against the SFPD has now arrived.
The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund filed a federal civil rights class lawsuit against San Francisco and police commanders on behalf of children and young adults arrested in July 2023 at a community event that occurred in Dolores Park in San Francisco, California.
The parents of teenagers caught in the July Dolores Park “hill bomb” mass arrests filed a claim against San Francisco on Monday alleging that police officials violated their childrens’ constitutional rights.
