[efoods]Students from the city’s Creative and Performing Arts High School marched to the City-County Building on Tuesday in support of a classmate who said police brutally beat him earlier this month, calling for action on a case that has drawn public outrage and the attention of the FBI.
The rally of more than 50 students, who cried at times and held handwritten signs, ended in front of council chambers, where protesters demanded an investigation of the officers involved in the Jan. 12 arrest of Jordan Miles in Homewood.
Mr. Miles, 18, who is charged with aggravated assault and resisting arrest, said three undercover officers beat him when they mistook the bottle of soda he was carrying for a concealed weapon.
