The Department of Justice is moving away from taking on abuses by local law enforcement. This is what that means for Elkhart, Indiana.
Of the 34 supervisors in the Elkhart, Indiana, Police Department, 28 have been disciplined. Fifteen have been suspended. Seven have been involved in fatal shootings. Three have been convicted of criminal charges.
Although the officers received reprimands for the incident five months ago, they were not charged until the video became public.
