Here Are Some Of The Most Shocking Parts Of DOJís Report On Baltimore Police

WASHINGTON ― The Justice Department formally released a damning report on Wednesday detailing the routine abuse inflicted on Baltimore residents by the cityís police department.

Baltimore police regularly performed unconstitutional stops, frisks and arrests ― which disproportionately targeted black residents ― and held an ďus-versus-themĒ mentality, the report says. The Justice Department also found that officers retaliated against citizens, took a lax approach to sexual assault cases, employed excessive force too freely and used slurs against LGBT people.

A list of abuse with excerpts from the report at the link.
