Police Complaint Dept.

“[I]f one really wishes to know how justice is administered in a country, one does not question the policemen, the lawyers, the judges, or the protected members of the middle class. One goes to the unprotected — those, precisely, who need the law’s protection most! — and listens to their testimony.”
— James Baldwin, No Name in the Street

The Peaceful Streets Project regularly organizes “Police Complaint Department” events in public spaces to enable Austinites to go on record with their stories of police abuse. Check out our YouTube playlist of footage collected to date:
