DOJ: Baltimore Police Department engages in discriminatory practices | 11 Aug 2016 | The Baltimore Police Department (BPD) has engaged in tactics that violate the First and Fourth Amendments and numerous anti-discrimination laws, according to a report released by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday. The report is centered on the use of excessive force and illegal stops, seizures and searches, especially within the African-American community. Most at fault for the systemic discrimination against African-American citizens, the DOJ said, are “deficient policies, training and accountability systems,” including the “zero-tolerance” street enforcement. A variety of statistics were used to highlight the problem within the Baltimore, among which was a finding by the DOJ that African Americans accounted for over 80 percent of all BPD vehicle stops, despite white individuals being found with contraband twice as often.
