Surely every kid has played some version of “cops and robbers” at some point in his/her childhood.
I remember my elementary school classmates and I modified the classic game of “tag” to include teams (of boys versus girls, of course — boys had cooties!) and jailtime. It was a playground classic that we played every day after lunch until the recess ladies told us to stop because we were getting too rowdy.
The next year, we weren’t allowed to play soccer. That was too rowdy, too.
Anyway. For one week this summer, some kids got to learn more about the cops’ side of things, and I got to photograph them.
