The Kansas City, Missouri, police department has agreed to pay $900,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by Tyree Bell, who was 15, in 2016 when he was detained for three weeks for a crime he did not commit. Cops had responded to a call claiming three black males were on a corner with guns. When officers arrived, one of the suspects ran. They chased him, but he got away. Shortly after, they saw Bell and stopped him.
