Police Reform and the New Jim Crow
Police reform and the "new Jim Crow"
This Thursday at 2 pm, the Portland City Council will conduct a public hearing on a letter of agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice mandating changes in the Portland Police Bureau. Will the federal mandate change of the culture of the Bureau? Will the City Council make sure community concerns are reflected in the agreement? Jo Ann will look at the letter of agreement, who is resisting its implementation and how citizens can make a difference at this critical moment in how the police perform their duties.
