America is addicted to bullshit crimes, and the six-year prosecution of a Black police chief proves it

The hosts of the Police Accountability Report take a deep dive into the ongoing efforts to prosecute a popular Black police chief for a 2014 accident investigation involving two parked cars. The latest ruling in the case by an appeals court reveals yet another example of how America’s criminal justice system often focuses more on projecting power than public safety.

Recent developments in a criminal case against a popular Black police chief reveal just how focused American law enforcement is on “bullshit” crimes. The prosecution of Kelvin Sewell for his role in an investigation involving two parked cars has dragged on for nearly six years. Now prosecutors face a hearing over alleged misconduct, but the fact that Sewell was indicted at all raises serious questions about how much law enforcement in America is about projecting inequitable power.
