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.
