Dragon Age Banter Cutscene #1 - Alistair’s distrust of Zevran
This is an excellent idea! And very well executed!
(I don’t think I had that banter in my current PT… I don’t even remember it from the previous one, maybe it’s for romanced Zevran?)
Three black students waiting for bus arrested after cops order them to ‘disperse’
Three African-American students who were waiting for a school bus in Rochester, New York were arrested on Wednesday morning when police officer told them to “disperse,” even though witnesses said they did nothing wrong.
According to WROC, basketball coach Jacob Scott had arranged for a school bus to pick up the boys to take them to a scrimmage on a day when school was closed.
A police report claimed that the boys were blocking “pedestrian traffic while standing on a public sidewalk…preventing free passage of citizens walking by and attempting to enter and exit a store…Your complainant gave several lawful clear and concise orders for the group to disperse and leave the area without complaince [sic].”
But the students and the coach dispute the police version of events.
“We didn’t do nothing,” student Raliek Redd explained. “We was just trying to go to our scrimmage.”
“We was just waiting for our bus and he started arrested us,” student Wan’Tauhjs Weathers added.
Daequon Carelock, who was also arrested, lamented that anyone could be “just downtown, minding your own business, and next thing you know, anything can happen.”
Coach Scott arrived just as the boys were being handcuffed and was also threatened with arrest.
“He goes on to say, ‘If you don’t disperse, you’re going to get booked as well,’” Scott recalled. “I said, ‘Sir, I’m the adult. I’m their varsity basketball coach. How can you book me? What am I doing wrong? Matter of fact, what are these guys doing wrong?’”
“One of the police officers actually told me, if he had a big enough caravan, he would take all of us downtown,” he noted.
Scott called the incident a “catastrophe” for the boys and witnesses who were traumatized by the arrest.
“These young men were doing nothing wrong, nothing wrong. They did exactly what they were supposed to do and still they get arrested,” Scott remarked. “I’m speaking to the officers with dignity…and still and yet – they see me get treated like nothing.”
Rochester school board member Mary Adams expressed her outrage at the arraignment last week.
“I think the charges should be immediately dropped and I think the district attorney’s office should be stepping in and looking at these kinds of matters,” she said.
“I’m very concerned about a pattern of young people being abused by police authority,” Adams told WHEC. “To me, this seems like a really clear case, part of a pattern.”
A trial for the three students is scheduled for December 11.

Last week’s unexplained death of a teenager by an apparent gunshot wound while sitting in a patrol car sparked a march through downtown to police headquarters that turned violent Friday night.
On Saturday, police attributed the violence to a few “outside agitators,” while the department was both criticized and praised for how it responded to the conflict.
On Tuesday, 17-year-old Jesus Huerta died while sitting in Officer Samuel Duncan’s patrol car. Police Chief Jose Lopez said it didn’t appear that Duncan fired his weapon. But Lopez said he would not elaborate on how Huerta, who was under arrest for second-degree trespassing, died until the State Bureau of Investigation completes its work.
In response, more than 150 people gathered Friday night in downtown Durham to remember Huerta and express frustration over the lack of information provided. But as the group reached police headquarters, protesters wearing black hooded sweatshirts, ski masks and bandanas joined the march and began throwing firecrackers at police officers.
Shahqeel Alexander McCrimmon, 19, of Durham was arrested and charged with failure to disperse on command, causing a public disturbance, and holding a demonstration while wearing a mask or hood. A 14-year-old boy was also arrested and charged with injury to property.
McCrimmon was released from jail after posting $1,500 bail. The 14-year-old was released to the custody of his parents.
Police are searching for others who damaged police property, Bonfield said.
One witness said police went after some people who were not necessarily destroying anything.
“They just grabbed people out of the street,” said Elena Everett, director of Youth Organizing Institute, a nonprofit that trains and supports Triangle high school students.
“I saw some police officers who were pretty hyped on adrenaline, literally dodge into the crowd and try to pull them out,” she said. “They had little batons. They were pulling out Tasers.”
Huerta is the third suspect to die this year while Durham police were attempting to take him into custody.
