There is such a review process in Chicago, its a political nightmare and a joke.

Civilians know absolutely nothing about police work. It seems like just another way for criminals to complain about how they get treated. In case you haven't figured it out yet, Police Officers don't look at color. They look at whether a person is a criminal or not. If you don't want to be hounded by the police then don't be a criminal. Simple as that. The only people you ever hear complaining about how they are treated by police are people that break the law. Criminals don't like officers that do their job. Instead of complaining why don't you just change your life and become a decent person. Then you won't have anything to complain about.

You definitely need a Civilian Review Board to help sort things out, but you also need Due Process for Police Officers. You cannot have one without the other.
