Justice Department slams Baltimore police for bias, abuses

Hosted by

The Justice Department has released a scathing 163-page finding about the Baltimore Police Department. Begun in the aftermath of the highly publicized death of Freddie Gray, it documents inadequate training, abusive discrimination and a lack of accountability. While Vanita Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ, said that "the city’s African American residents and neighborhood bore the brunt of this activity," Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said that "change" and "growth" are painful, and that he’s already fired some officers as a result of the investigation. Ryan Reilly, senior justice reporter for the Huffington Post, has more on the findings.
