Here Are Some Of The Most Shocking Parts Of DOJ’s Report On Baltimore Police

WASHINGTON ― The Justice Department formally released a damning report on Wednesday detailing the routine abuse inflicted on Baltimore residents by the city’s police department.

Baltimore police regularly performed unconstitutional stops, frisks and arrests ― which disproportionately targeted black residents ― and held an “us-versus-them” mentality, the report says. The Justice Department also found that officers retaliated against citizens, took a lax approach to sexual assault cases, employed excessive force too freely and used slurs against LGBT people.

Here are some of the most damning findings in the report.

A woman with a broken headlight was publicly strip-searched

Officers “publicly strip-searched a woman following a routine traffic stop for a missing headlight.” They even searched the woman’s anal cavity. They found nothing.
