A unit of the Louisiana State Police—the same police department that was involved in the in-custody death of Ronald Greene and accused in the merciless beatings of Antonio Harris and Aaron Bowman, all of whom are Black men—is now under internal investigation by a panel made up of other state police officials tasked with determining whether the unit’s police officers are targeting Black drivers for police brutality.

The Associated Press reports that it was Greene’s 2019 death—which officers had the blue caucasity to blame on a car crash rather than them repeatedly beating and tasing him—that prompted the investigation, along with other clear instances of excessive force used by police, including the altercation involving Bowman.
