Good for the U S DOJ!  All such outrageous conduct by police should be investigated.  But another culprit here is the local prosecutor! Local prosecutors should have prosecuted the police! I was a prosecutor for 5 years, and it was clear to me from day one that my job was not “to back the police at any cost”; my job was to be FAIR, and that is the job of every prosecutor! Excerpts from the Article: A Louisiana State Police trooper...

This is a good move; we need transparency and video records sometimes of what the cops are doing. Excerpts from the Article: Requiring all police officers in the state to wear body cameras was part of the Delaware Black Caucus’ Justice for All agenda, unveiled last year following protests over the Minnesota police killing of George Floyd. On Wednesday morning, members of the caucus joined other lawmakers at State Police Troop 2 in Glasgow as...

Delaware State Police sued after plainclothes officers blockade wrong woman’s car

Posted by on Jul 16, 2021 in Featured, Police Brutality |

God Bless lawyers like Mr. Igwe.  Come on, Delaware State Police, you can do much better than this bullshit!  When cops act like the rude idiots in this case, they just further undermine respect for police. This is another good reason to eliminate the Delaware police Bill of Rights law! Excerpts from the Article: Delaware State Police are facing a lawsuit after four plainclothes officers in unmarked vehicles blockaded a woman in her car and...
