DOJ and New Jersey US Attorney’s office open investigation into the City of Trenton and its police department focusing on use of excessive force

(CNN) - The Justice Department and the US Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey have opened an investigation into the Trenton Police Department and the City of Trenton that will focus on the use of excessive force and unlawful stops, searches and arrests, officials announced Tuesday.

The pattern-or-practice investigation was spurred after a thorough review of court records, statistics, media reports, body-worn camera footage and instances of what Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke called “problematic uses of force” for minor traffic violations.

Activists protest inside Lancaster grocery store over controversial LASD bodycam video

Activists protested inside a WinCo Foods grocery store in Lancaster after a controversial video taken outside the store shows an #LASD deputy slamming a woman to the ground. Leo Stallworth has the latest on the investigation.
In this one he feels different. He makes it clear that due process is the villain and to right the wrong due process has caused here that it should just be thrown out all together.

3 officers acquitted in death of Black man who said he couldn’t breathe

A jury in Washington state acquitted three police officers of all criminal charges in the March 2020 death of Manuel Ellis, a 33-year-old Black man who was shocked, beaten, restrained and said he could not breathe.

Democrats press Justice Department on police use of facial recognition

Democratic senators pressed the Department of Justice (DOJ) about police usage of facial recognition tools in a Thursday letter.

“In recent years, facial recognition and other biometric technologies have become widely used in law enforcement,” the letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland reads. “However, these technologies can be unreliable and inaccurate, especially with respect to race and ethnicity.”

Prosecutors dismiss charges against Louisiana troopers who bragged of beating a Black motorist

Louisiana prosecutors have quietly dismissed charges against state police troopers who were recorded beating a Black motorist and hoisting him to his feet by his hair braids before bragging in text messages that the “whoopin’” would give the man “nightmares for a long time.”

The violent 2020 arrest of Antonio Harris was among a series of beatings of Black men captured on body camera that prompted a sprawling U.S. Justice Department investigation into use of force by the Louisiana State Police. It came about a year after the deadly 2019 arrest of Ronald Greene in northern Louisiana, a beating that also resulted in state charges.

2 Black men tortured by Mississippi officers call for toughest sentences
Two Black men who were tortured by six Mississippi law enforcement officers last year called Monday for a federal judge to impose the strictest possible penalties at their sentencings this week.

The former law officers admitted in August to subjecting Michael Corey Jenkins and Eddie Terrell Parker to numerous acts of racially motivated, violent torture......


....Prosecutors say some of the officers nicknamed themselves the “Goon Squad” because of their willingness to use excessive force and cover up attacks.

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey called the crimes by his deputies the worst case of police brutality he had ever seen. For months, Bailey said little about the episode. After the officers pleaded guilty in August, Bailey said the officers had gone rogue and promised to change the department......

Elward pleaded guilty in August to federal charges of discharge of a firearm during a crime of violence, conspiracy against rights, deprivation of rights under color of law, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and obstruction of justice related to the January 2023 incident. The former officer was also ordered to pay $79,500 in restitution to the victims.

Sure.

Has there ever been a case where you didn't automatically declare the black person guilty and the cops justified?

Maybe it’s best to wait for all the facts to come in and for complete investigations to be done before going off half cocked.

I know. Every case is different. Stats show most police / civilian interactions to be peaceful. Those that involve force are more often justified. But there are exceptions and those are what we hear about. You don’t hear about the vast majority that don’t involve force or are otherwise justifiable uses of force. And yet we judge them all by the exceptions. We should consider each case separately on its own merits.

We also don't hear about the ones where Police overstep their bounds with people of color and they knuckle under even though the Police are acting unlawfully and ignore their rights.
