Description

Subway acrobats, dancers and musicians on Tuesday decried what they said was heavy-handed policing, gathering outside City Hall to join critics of a police clampdown on minor offenses. One activist suggested a temporary halt to subway performer arrests, which have spiked this year as officers zeroed in on minor crimes to set a tone of not tolerating lawlessness. Zenon "Tito" Laguerre, a 34-year-old construction worker and subway acrobat who said he was arrested last week said, "We dance. We sing. We're not criminals. ... We shouldn't really get locked up for showing our talent." http://news.yahoo.com/nyc-subway-performers-were-being-over-policed-195654192.html http://www.wochit.com
