Paper Topic Use of Force within the Ferguson Police Department. This is my topic of choice because I have been keen on understanding the basis for use of force by Police Officers, also in one of my other classes this is a topic of serious debate. There appears to be an obvious bias in the use of force ratios against blacks compared to against whites; In reading and researching, Ferguson is a place where this is apparent and has been investigated and reported about. I will be using scholarly journals and articles to argue for the presence of a bias in the use of force by the Police officers of the Ferguson Police Department and will also argue against this as well to show both sides of the argument.
