Huffington Post: Newark Residents Have Zero Tolerance for Police Corruption
Last week, the ACLU of New Jersey filed yet another lawsuit against the city — our third in three years — alleging systemic abuse in the Newark Police.

“You’re right — I owe you 10 dollars,” one officer told the other, “It is a man.”
ALCU-NJ executive director Deborah Jacobs highlights their third case against the Newark Police Department in three years for abuses of civil liberties.
