DOJ to Investigate Baltimore Police

Hosted by

US Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced today the launch of a sweeping investigation of the Baltimore Police Department for "excessive force, including deadly force, unlawful seizures and discriminatory policing." The probe follows the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, and criminal charges filed against six officers. Baltimore officials had asked for a federal review and Lynch said today one was needed to fix a "serious erosion of public trust."
