Blacks Voice Concern Over PompanoPolice Response
January 17, 1986|By Marci Richardson, Staff Writer
Police testimony at a hearing on Thursday did not quell the concerns of severalPompano Beach residents who have charged that some officers use strong-armtacticsas a routine response in black neighborhoods. “I’mjust asking that something be done”,said Venderee Pickett, mother of a 15-year-old girl who she said was terrorized by police on Saturday night after they broke up ateen-age party. “I don’t think police should feel confident to put a gun in your face and take you to jailwithout charges and get away with it. I don’t think they would have treated white girlslike that.” The officers’actions are currently under investigation by the Police Department’sInternal Affairs Unit.Thursday’shearing was a bond reduction request for Craig Frazier, 19, of the 500 block of Northwest 17th Street, Pompano Beach. The Ely High School graduate was arrestedafter he left the party with four other teen-agers, including Pickett’s daughter. Chargedwith resisting arrest with violence and obstructing justice, Frazier initially was held inthe Broward County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.Frazier’s attorney, John McCray, questioned whether the arresting officer,

Ya know when you have a gut feeling about something, but you can't quite put your finger on exactly what it is? I have that about Elfo being in the northwest. Did he really come here to take a chief's job in Blaine? Or was he really motivated to get out of Florida for some reason?
