Stop Police Brutality & Racial Profiling. #Justice4 Mike Brown

Years ago, I did a story for the Texas Observer regarding police brutality in Dallas, Texas. I learned that the police are connected to a web of enforcement and protection that includes the District Attorney, the Grand Jury, and that the Police Chief who has political responsibilities has little control over the power of the police unions. I also learned that the only way to prevent police brutality is to ensure a strong Civilian Review Board with subpoena power, so that the citizens can call in the police and interview them immediately. These Boards can police the police -- who are supposed to protect us, not attack us.
