BCPR - Police

Police The boys in blue are under more scrutiny than usual as the country starts to figure out the lessons from the police shooting of unarmed black man Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the horribly ill-advised militaristic response to protests in its after- math. BPD didn't make many new fans by videotaping activists marching in solidarity with those in Ferguson, but the Anne Arundel County police union pissed off even more people by making a $1,070 donation to the defense fund for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson cop that killed Brown. Healing begins at home.
