ACLU:

Today, Baltimore’s state attorney ruled Freddie Gray’s death a homicide and charged six officers with the crime. This announcement isn’t a victory but it’s certainly an important step towards accountability.

ACLU Petitition:

The Department of Justice (DOJ):

The first step towards accountability is transparency.

  • Mandate that all police departments collect and report data on a quarterly basis on police shootings, and other deaths in custody, as well as stops, frisks, searches, citations, arrests, and uses of force.

  • Create a national public database of this data, including a breakdown by race, gender, age, outcome, and the officer’s basis for the encounter and action.
