Children Murdered at the Hands of the Legal System

A Just Chicago reports on the educational damage suffered by children whose parents are incarcerated. It discusses the disproportionately high suspension rates of Black students, and the "school to prison pipeline". A more gruesome aspect of the racist injustice system is the murder of children, particularly Black children, at the hands of the police and the courts.

Stop and Frisk in Chicago

The sight of young Black men, spread-eagled with hands on the police car, is an all too familiar one in Chicago. That’s because “stop and frisk,” usually for no lawful reason, is disproportionately concentrated in the Black community. A March 2015 American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) report found that more than 250,000 Chicagoans were stopped, but not arrested, in the summer of 2014.
