Report on police not conclusive
City Manager Lemmie is still going to conduct an outside study of this "problem." This "study" will find nothing. This study will not compile evidence of wrongdoing. It looks at policy. The discipline polices are not the problem. The only possible problem is the manner in which those policies are administered. The initial report confirms no wide pattern exists, just that black officers either commit more or are cite for committing more policy infractions than non-black officers, by percentage. There will be no finding that blacks are being “mistreated.” I would bet the numbers are consistent with overall criminal infractions in the general population as well.
