Description

LAPD’s elite Metropolitan Division employed aggressive policing tactics that disproportionately affected black residents in a city still healing from a troubled racial history. Metro officers stopped black drivers at a rate more than five times their share of the population. Even in South L.A., where most of the city’s violent crime occurs and where most residents are black or Latino, Metro stopped blacks at disproportionately high rates.
