Police Procedures Expert Witnesses In Sean Bell Hearing

Eyewitness News reporter Nina Pineda reports on the NYPD’s aggressive policing tactics:

Excessive police force, racial profiling and the independence of local prosecutors are the three issues the House Judiciary Committee is examining to determine how to proceed on a federal level with the legacy of Sean Bell. “This committee, this delegation, will insist that the Justice Department pursue a comprehensive, fair and expeditious investigation of this case,” New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler said.

The committee is going to review the recommendations from police procedures expert witnesses on federal oversight of police patterns and practices, not just in New York City, but in any city where public confidence in law enforcement is questioned.
