I've had the idea of making a thread like this on HL for a while now. I think we should have a single thread for posting material on stories about police brutality, excessive force, murders by police officers, abuse of power or even general corruption in law enforcement. Probably mostly American-centric, but we could also have stories about law enforcement abuses from other countries. My goal for this thread is actually to do more than just spread information about cases that come up. Ideally we should be able to help organize support or funding for people who are victims of police abuse or their families, especially support for legal funds if they want to file lawsuits against the departments and officers responsible. I personally don't have organizational experience doing. But there are a lot of people on HL who are passionate about this issue, and I figured there would be some support for this on the board. With so many horrible stories about this all the time in America I figured The Coli might be able to help in a very small way.
