What makes for a reasonable cause to call the police when you’re in a public place? To some former Applebees employees in Independence, MO, vaguely resembling people who may have skipped out on paying for dinner the night before is cause to call the cops.
Alexis Brison and her friend were shopping together at the Independence Center and stopped off at the Applebees for a bite. While the two college girls were trying to enjoy an average Sunday evening out, the store manager, a mall security guard, and a police officer came to the table.
This is not a time in our social history to take something like this lightly. In an age when young black teenagers are shot in the street, unarmed, you can just imagine how terrified these young women must have been to see law enforcement approach their table.
