Baltimore Police and Race
The tradition was regarded as a technique by aggressive officers to inflict punishment on those they arrested without ever being accused of physically assaulting them with their weapons or hands. For a suspect with hands cuffed behind him, seated on a thin bench in the back of a speeding police van, a sudden stop or sharp turn or a bumpy road can do as much damage as a physical assault. ~ New York TimesConservatives are crowing that the death of Freddie Gray was not racism because half the cops involved in the "rough ride" leading to his death were black. Maybe yes, maybe no. Police have developed a gang mentality, if one officer initiates a violent incident the others are compelled to participate or risk being blackballed by their "brother officers." Also, many African-American police see poor addicted black men as subhuman animals just like their white colleagues.
