Policing the Police: Accountability in Police Misconduct

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 125

Join Copblock.org co-founder Pete Eyre for a discussion on police misconduct like excessive force, harassment, discrimination, and corruption, and how to hold police accountable for their actions as citizens and lawyers. Often, police are protected from accountability for their actions, both through lack of internal police discipline and in the courts. Police misconduct often disproportionally affects minorities and low-income persons, who have little or no means of redress. To this end, Copblock.org is a non-profit organization of individuals dedicated to bringing issues of police misconduct to light and holding police accountable through documentation of police actions and transparency.

Chipotle for lunch.
