STOP POLICY BRUTALITY!
Policy Brutality in the USA is reaching epidemic proportions. The authorities are clearly unwilling to question police tactics and behavior in any but the most superficially cosmetic manner for obvious political reasons.
Policy is made possible the arrogance of statist policies in many arenas. Our racist immigration policy is another aspect of this, which has clearly infected the police. As per Howard R. Olson, MA a Bioethicist, only the Libertarian Party and allied parties around the world are questioning in any relevant manner the whole issue of police brutality which statists right and left are seeking to ignore. It is time that the public at large demand rigorous Citizen Review of police behavior and reform the entire justice system in a humanistic, bioethical and scientific context.
Officer Robert Allan shot Aquan, a robbery suspect in the back at 2 a.m. on April 13. Allan had said that the youth had ignored his commands to freeze and made a move as if reaching for a weapon, but some witnesses’ statements have conflicted with that account. Civilian review boards to monitor police conduct. Talks of male-only schools. More African American police officers. Those are some of the far-reaching solutions broached by angry, determined community leaders, in the wake of the fatal shooting of an unarmed 14-year-old boy by a Hartford police officer.

Four California Officers Shot and
Killed a 19-year-old Woman
Four police officers that shot and killed a 19-year-old woman last December will not face criminal charges, Riverside County District Attorney said. A thorough investigation showed that the four officers, Daniel Hotard, Wayne Stewart, Michael Alagna and Paul Bugar—should not be held criminally liable for shooting Tyisha Miller as she sat in her car.
On December 28, 1998, Riverside police received a 911 call after Miller was found "unresponsive" in an idling car at a gas station. The caller said she had a handgun in her lap.

Twenty-three shots were fired and Miller was hit 12 times.
