DOJ: Baltimore PD Routinely Showed Racial Bias

A Justice Department investigation found that the Baltimore Police Department engages in unconstitutional practices that led to disproportionate rates of stops, searches and arrests of African-Americans, and excessive use of force against juveniles and people with mental health disabilities.
The Department of Justice monitored the department's policing methods for more than a year at the request of the Baltimore Police Department, after the 2015 death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a fatal injury while in police custody.
The report, which covered data from 2010 to 2016 and was obtained Tuesday by CNN, attributed the widespread practices to "systemic deficiencies" in training, policies, supervision and accountability structures.
Among the investigation's findings:
• African-Americans accounted for 95% of 410 individuals stopped at least 10 times from 2010 to 2016
• One African-American man in his 50s was stopped 30 times in less than four years; none of the stops resulted in a citation or criminal charge
• African-Americans accounted for 82% of all BPD vehicle stops though they make up 60% of the driving age population in the city and 27% percent of the driving age population in the greater metropolitan area
• BPD officers found contraband twice as often when searching white individuals compared to African-Americans during vehicle stops and 50% more often during pedestrian stops

Another example where a DOJ examiner rode with a BPD officer on a routine shift. At one point the officer stopped the car and told a patrolman to break up a group of young black guys chatting at a street corner. When the patrolman questioned the order asking "What reason should I give them?" The BPD officer (with the DOJ guy sitting next to him) said "Make something up."

I suspect the Baltimore Police have a them or we mind set that is likely mandatory in The Big City these days.

There is nothing unconstitutional about how a police department conducts themselves. This another reason the DOJ should have its budget cut by at least 75%.

And a large percentage of the BPD is black. This will result in further police pullbacks and more black victims of black crime, something which the Øbama DoJ seems to have no problem with.

Kids born in the inner city have no future to look forward to which along with peer pressure makes them turn to crime; the only paying occupation in the ghetto. This can be solved by bringing back shovel jobs. The Director of the National Park Service said we have a lot of work to be done. Sort'a like the CCC.

The joe rogan experience w/ Michael woods jr.

Michael is a former Baltimore cop. Maybe take it straight from the horses mouth and not from the DOJ and other progressives who enjoy judging the citizens from their ivory towers.

Now Sabcat thinks the DOJ is progressive??? That is hilarious. Are we in for another right-wing conspiracy theory? I can't wait to hear it.
Gather round, children. This is going to be good.
Possibilities: Hillary somehow OWNS the DOJ? Is blackmailing the DOJ? Has hypnotized the DOJ?? Bill and Loretta Lynch are having a torrid affair? Hillary and Lynch are having a torrid affair?? A flaming HOT threesome??

Well, the DOJ isn't investigating this heinous crime committed by a nefarious Democrat, are they?

Right Wing Watch has posted a new clip of Jones talking about the reasons he thinks Michelle Obama is actually transgender. That in itself is pretty crazy, but then he goes off in an amazing new direction by suggesting that the first lady had Joan Rivers killed because she knew the truth about her dark secret.

“Don’t forget, the famous comedienne Joan Rivers said, ‘Of course everyone knows she’s a tranny,'” Jones says in the clip. “She’s dead serious, ‘She’s a man.’ Deader than a doornail in a routine operation where basically she had fire poured down her throat and was a fire-breathing goblin. Dead on arrival. Shoot your mouth off, honey, you will die.”
