Cities with Patterns of Civil Rights Abuses Still Receive Surplus Military Equipment

Cities nationwide that are under investigation for alleged civil rights violations are still eligible to receive surplus military equipment, the Justice Department reports, according to the Associated Press.

The discovery raises questions about the controversial Pentagon program following the militarized law enforcement response in Ferguson, Mo.

The Pentagon responded that it would work closer with the Justice Department to prevent the weaponry from falling into the hands of problematic police agencies.

“We need to do a better job there,” Alan Estevez, a Defense Department official who oversees the program, said.

The Los Angeles Police Department, which has been under the oversight of the Justice Department because of substantiated cases of excessive force and fake arrests, continues to get militarized supplies.

The same goes for other troubled police departments across the country, the AP reports.
