Task Force Finds That Chicago Police Don’t Care About Minorities

Chicago’s police department has “no regard for the sanctity of life when it comes to people of color” and its accountability system is broken, a task force declared in a report released Wednesday.

Nobody really needs a study to know that quite a few police departments in the US appear not to have the sanctity and well-being of minorities in their best interest. What no study can seem to unearth is why do minorities trigger rampant anathema for some police officers departments.

This latest report was compiled by a panel of people who is said to have interviewed more than 100 experts and residents.

The report offers sweeping recommendations on how Chicago official can overhaul their Police Department .

The report, commissioned by the city’s mayor, points to 2015’s mass public outrage at the police shooting death black teenager Laquan McDonald as a “tipping point.”

The task force concluded minorities are spot on about fearing Chicago’s law enforcement officers.

Between 2008 and 2015, black people comprised 74% of people shot by Chicago police, despite making up just 33% of the city’s population. That’s twisted.

This report and others like it confirm what blacks and other minorities live each day out here on these mean streets when the ones sworn to protect and serve turn up as the ones who maim, kill, and take.

We need solutions and we need them fast.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
