Despite the cover-ups and the times when the police force has been misaligned with what they stand for — more so towards the individuals from the black community — media investigations have not stopped While activists and known names have made their opposition to the police brutality quite clear, there is now data as well to show the disparity in the force used against black individuals. According to NJ.com, state lawmakers and faith leaders of New Jersey called for public hearings to probe racial disparity in an announcement on Thursday. This call came in the wake of the release of a report made by NJ Advance Media — which found that black people in New Jersey were punched, kicked and pepper sprayed during arrests at a far higher rate than white residents

The data is crystal clear,” said Rev. Charles Boyer, a pastor and founder of the civil rights group Salvation and Social Justice, during a Statehouse press conference in Trenton. “What black communities have been outraged about for decades, and given little to no credence, has once again been justified by research.”

The report, that has come out confirming what people were already seeing around them, is called the Force Report. The report was a result of a 16-month investigation that was published at the end of 2018.

According to NJ.com, the report highlights some major disparities in how police officers use force and who they use it against. Moreover, it also lists the paltry oversight and lack of standard reporting practices.
