State accused of racial bias in crackdown against child abuse

DeClara Tripp opened a dresser drawer in the room where her infant son used to sleep. Inside was a striped blue jumper, the one that little Zhakari wore the day before he was rushed by ambulance to Children’s Minnesota Hospital in St. Paul.

When Tripp saw the tiny jumper, she held it to her face and began to cry. “I can still smell him in these clothes,” she said. “Zhakari’s my baby and I want him back.”
