A US federal probe has concluded that the police in Cleveland -- where a 12-year-old boy was recently shot and killed by police -- has engaged in a pattern of "using excessive force," Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday.
"We have determined that there is reasonable cause to believe that the Cleveland Division of Police engages in a pattern or practice of using excessive force – in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and as a result of systemic deficiencies, including insufficient accountability, inadequate training and equipment, ineffective policies, and inadequate engagement with the community," Holder said.
