Fatayi Jomoh, an honor roll student, was at the JaxPAL gym in Jacksonville where a children’s basketball game sponsored by the Police Athletic League just finished.
That was when a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Officer decided to put Jomoh in handcuffs.
Jomoh's mother, Bunmi Borisade, was at the gym at the time but in a different section and was unaware of what was going on until another child came up and told her.
