  1. Justice Department Cracks Down on Police Tactics

    Attorney General Eric Holder announced today that a Cleveland police officer used excessive force in the fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. As a result of the federal probe, the city has agreed to independent oversight of its use-of-force policies. Holder’s announcement comes just a day after a grand jury decided not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. The AG also promised to look into the case of the unarmed 43-year-old black man who died in July after yelling “I can’t breathe.”
