Please go here for our blog introduction to this Problem with Police Brutality in the United States…  In regard to your binder and print journalism study of the issue, I want you to find EVERYTHING.   Don’t just search for the Blendspace.  I expect you to canvass the entire Internet; past and  present.  Coverage of the issue, from local and national sources  is of the essence.  Find the Police Report; read it.  If there are Facebook sights involved – find them.  Editorials that focus on your issue are significant as well.  And send me an email with a final listing of all video and audio  links that you have accumulated for research on the topic.  You will recieve a pre-Blendspace 50 point grade based on how thorough you are at accumulating information.

Go here for an excellent report about police brutality ten years back in Kenosha, Wisconsin and a fathers search for justice in his son’s death.   If you don’t have a particular issue for study…you might want to give this a try.  Everybody should read it.
