What To Do When You're Stopped By Police - The ACLU & Elon James White

Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.

This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

Brutalized Behind Bars in New York State - The New York Times

"New York City’s longstanding failure to curb brutality by guards at the
Rikers Island jail complex fell under a spotlight last year when the
United States attorney in Manhattan joined a class-action lawsuit and
then the city agreed in June to sweeping policy changes.
Now charges of gratuitous beatings and even torture by
corrections officers in the New York State prison system are attracting
federal scrutiny. Though it is hard to fathom, the state system for
disciplining officers who batter inmates without cause is even worse
than in the city jails. To begin to fix this problem, state officials will
need to win stronger disciplinary provisions in the next round of
contract negotiations with the corrections union and generally take a
much more aggressive approach to getting abusive officers off the job."
