This nation is once again facing a profound democratic crisis- the accountability of Police Departments. The rebellion in Ferguson Missouri, the march against the killing of Eric Garner in Staten Island are historical echoes of a long pattern of police misconduct against people of color. Made worse by the increasing militarization of police departments and the denial among white Americans that "we have a race problem." More troubling the inability of the media to understand that Native Americans, Latinos, and Asians are also threatened by this creeping fascism . Curbing police abuse belongs to all. The first step must be indictments of the officers that are responsible for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
