Feds' Proposal on Tracking Deaths in Custody Show Lack of Desire to Change 'Status Quo in Policing'

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

It may seem that the simplest way to gather accurate information about deaths in police custody is for the police departments themselves to collect the data.

But that's not the how the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) proposes to implement the Deaths in Custody Reporting Act (DICRA), signed into law in 2014, and that's a real problem, according to scores of organizations.

The militarized police force that roams this country like an occupying army must be broken apart.

ok we have seen video of Natasha McKinney, after calling police cuz she was disoriented and having mental problems, saw those big white tazmat suits surrounding her in her cell and tasing her to death- four point blank blasts would kill a horse. so we don't need any more "investigating" here we need prosecutions.

we do still ned to investigate Gynnya McMillen who got taken down with martial arts moves, then went to her cell and was never seen alive again. the official story is she had a 'rare genetic disorder." her "disorder"was being black in custody and it is anything but rare- the same month Sandra Bland died
in custody, 5 other Black women did too. all these deaths scream for investigation by a special prosecutor
