Achieving diversity in police ranks no easy task

Achieving diversity in police ranks no easy task

When he took over as police chief last year in the St. Louis suburb of Maryland Heights, it didn’t take Bill Carson long to see he had a serious diversity problem. Of the department’s 79 sworn officers, just one was black and one Hispanic.

“Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts defended her refusal to show her ID to Los Angeles police before they handcuffed her last week.

Texas abortion law could send women across borders

Texas abortion law could send women across borders
