Public shaming by police hurts Lakota family

 


RAPID CITY – In “trying to publicly humiliate” Lariat Comes by publishing his arrest record this past week, the Rapid City Police Department had provided an example of a major failure of the judicial system in Pennington County.

By providing local news outlets with a list of Comes’ 77 arrests over the last 8 years, which was then posted on social media pages and gave local residents an opportunity to provide commentary and discriminatory remarks regarding the Lakota man’s life and future.
