Blacks and police violence

Newly released dash-cam video shows police tackling and beating a Black Northwestern University doctoral student in Evanston, Illinois after suspecting him of stealing a car that belonged to him.

District attorney Bonnie Dumanis said there will be no criminal charges filed against the El Cajon, California cop who fatally shot Alfred Olango last year. Dumanis said the officer was "justified" during his encounter with the unarmed Black married father of two. Olango's family has condemned the decision and vowed to continue fighting for justice.

A federal judge has upheld a lawsuit alleging claims of malicious prosecution, defamation and invasion of privacy against Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby brought by five of the six officers who were acquitted and relieved of charges in the death of Freddie Gray in 2015.

Newly released videos and 911 calls reveal the panic and chaos that erupted during a public altercation that led to a Chicago police officer fatally shooting Joshua Beal in November 2016.

Authorities say they were forced to fire at Gaines after she pointed her gun at them, threatening to kill. Officers, whose names have not been released, fired one shot, missing Gaines. She then fired back twice in retaliation, and was fatally struck by three bullets.
