Honestie Hodges, Handcuffed by the Police at 11, Is Dead at 14.

The incident caused a national uproar and soul-searching in the Grand Rapids, Mich., police department. Honestie died of Covid-19.

Honestie developed severe stomach pains on Nov. 9, her 14th birthday. Taken to the hospital, she tested positive for the new coronavirus and was sent home. But her condition worsened that evening, an ambulance was called, and she was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit. Over the next few days she received iron and blood transfusions as complications arose. She was placed on a ventilator on Nov. 14. But her condition never improved. Ms. Niemeyer updated the GoFundMe page asking for prayers.
.
Ms. Niemeyer told WOOD-TV that Honestie had been “healthy and happy” with no underlying health issues.

That is very grim and tragic, even by current standards.

"The incident caused a widespread uproar that led to a soul-searching within the Grand Rapids Police Department."

I wonder if they were able to locate one.
