NAACP Calls For More Diversity In Police Lineups
April 19, 2006 | Issue 42•16
BALTIMORE—The NAACP challenged U.S. law-enforcement agencies Monday to promote diversity by providing a broader spectrum of ethnicities in police lineups. "We must expand the definition of the traditional lineup to include underrepresented groups such as Asians, Pacific Islanders, and whites," NAACP president Bruce Gordon said. "The criminal-justice system ought to offer all Americans the same opportunities blacks have enjoyed for so long."
