DOJ to Investigate Baltimore PD Over Brutality Charges

October 06, 2014  | 

The U.S. Department of Justice will conduct a civil rights investigation into allegations of brutality and misconduct by the Baltimore Police Department, Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts announced Friday.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Batts requested the probe after a six-month investigation by The Baltimore Sun found city residents have suffered battered faces and broken bones during arrests.

The city has paid $5.7 million in court judgments and settlements in 102 cases since 2011, and nearly all of the people who received payouts were cleared of criminal charges, according to the investigation published this week.

If remotely true the Officers involved are dumb azzes. If a city kitty is going to give an alley ride & justice you don't ever arrest and/or charge them. I'm talking about my old school days, too. can't do it in these new modern computer days.
