Austin American-Statesman Analyzes Police Violence

Congratulations to the Austin-American Statesman for its scholarship

and initiative in the Jan. 25, 2004 report by Erik Rodriguez and Andy Alford that shows Austin TX

police are 100 percent more likely to use force against African-Americans than

whites.

The report is a rare and laudible example of careful analysis done independently

by journalists; not simply reporting what others have found. Well done!–gm
