Protesters condemn cop beating in Newark
Fifty angry demonstrators marched on the Newark police
department July 28 protesting the cop beating of 18-year-old
Yahouda Gibson. The police arrested Gibson that day and took
him to the precinct, where they were followed by the crowd.
Meanwhile, in Edison, New Jersey, cop Wayne Seich was
suspended from the police force July 28 for assaulting 71-
year-old Elise Kitchen, who had called the police to
complain about Seich blocking traffic while he conversed
with another motorist in her neighborhood.
