#FergusonReport - Dogs, Tasers used predominately on African Americans – DOJ report on Ferguson

RT | Mar 4, 2015

African Americans are more likely to face the burden of excessive force, disproportionate fines, extended jail time, Taser and dog attacks, and racism by the Ferguson Police Department, according to the scathing new report from the new Department of Justice investigation. The report found a disturbing culture targeting the black community and straining relationships with police. Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder gave a speech Wednesday to address the wide injustice gap between the black community and the police force, adding the Ferguson PD had made constitutional violations a part of their routine. RT’s Manuel Rapalo breaks down the findings and the racial bias within the police.
