Lawyers, family members, and others insist the two black youths arrested are completely innocent.
Some of the reasons we are hearing:
• They were the only black teens the cops could find, so they arrested them.
• It's racial profiling.

• Police like to persecute young black males.
• They were arrested for wearing black hoodies.
• They're cell phones were somewhere else.
Cousins Shaquazz Allen, 19, and Tyrone Booker, 20 were arrested and were denied home detention for the attack. The two were already under detention for possession of property stolen from Bader's Market located at the site of the attack.
