Raising the Issue of Continued Discrimination Via Police Misconduct And Extra-judicial/Summary Executions Committed With Impunity On American Born People of Afrikan Descent

Report addresses the disproportionate cases of police misconduct, abuse, and extra-judicial killings in the city of Chicago, Illinois, as they relate to African Americans. [Note the difference in spelling of African here and Afrikan in the actual report.] It makes the case that in light of a lack of any accountability mechanism and appropriate judicial responses, these cases amount to acts of torture or cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, among other violations.
