Message from the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice
The College of Criminology and Criminal Justice is mournful over the unjust deaths of numerous members of the Black community by law enforcement. We know that these tragic events are not unique to law enforcement. Rather, they reflect systemic racism in our country. Communities of color in the United States have endured violence and disparate treatment by the criminal justice system far too long. Racism and the associated racialization of crime must end.
