The People’s Tribunal on Police Brutality Held in Albuquerque

Tribunals are seats of judgment, assigned to settle specific disputes or problems, often outside the purview of “official” judicial proceedings. Such a judgment took place on Saturday, March 14 in Albuquerque’s North Valley when a group of jurists constituted a People’s Tribunal on Police Brutality to hear the findings of a report, “Prejudice and Racial Bias in the Albuquerque Police Department.” The report is the result of a six-month investigation of police violence by ABQJustice and other Albuquerque-based community organizations. The groups conducted field interviews from September 2014 to February 2015 with people routinely victimized by the Albuquerque Police Department (APD). The investigation is part of an ongoing effort to address the failure of the Department of Justice’s 2014 to investigate racial bias and prejudice in its own investigation of APD, which concluded that the department engaged in unjustified and excessive use of force.
