Brickbat: Shine a Light


A federal grand jury has indicted former Louisiana state trooper Jacob Brown for a civil rights violation in a 2019 beating that left a black motorist with a broken jaw and broken ribs. Brown struck Aaron Larry Bowman 18 times with a flashlight. Brown recorded 23 use-of-force incidents since 2015, 19 against black people. He also faces state charges in connection with the Bowman case and the arrests of two other black drivers.
