My name is Jared Gaon and I am a Sophomore, Communications major here at the University of Maryland. The idea of police brutality is a huge issue in the United States and one that is only getting worse. How often do you hear about a police officer taking advantage of his or her power? There are thousands of reports of police misconduct each year – with many leading to death. Something has got to change. What if one of those fatalities happened to be you, or someone in your family? With this blog, we hope to further your knowledge in this field and explain one of the nation’s biggest issues.
