Race, Fear And Law In Police Confrontations

Jordan Miles, an 18-year-old high school student, left, sits with his mother Terez Miles in their home in Pittsburgh, Friday, Jan. 22, 2010. Miles was charged Jan. 13 with assault and resisting arrest and his family says he was hospitalized after being hit with a stun gun and suffering head lacerations. He claims that he resisted because he thought the men were trying to abduct him and didn’t identify themselves as police. The charges against Miles were later dismissed. Keith Srakocic/AP Photo
