Justice: Albuquerque Police Show 'Pattern Of Excessive Force'
Quote:The Justice Department says it has found "patterns of excessive force" in the Albuquerque Police Department.

Justice said it found "reasonable cause to believe that APD engages in a pattern or practice of excessive force in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution."

Specifically, the DOJ says officers use deadly force too frequently against people who pose a minimal threat and use less lethal force (such as Taser guns) on people who are "passively resisting, non-threatening, observably unable to comply with orders."

It also said that police encounters with persons with mental illness "too frequently result in a use of force or a higher level of force than necessary."

So, when will the justice department look at the PPD's and NYC's 4th amendment violations? Oh that's right, they won't.
