From Ferguson, to Baltimore, to Los Angeles, to NFL football games, the issue of police brutality and racial profiling has ignited a national debate and a grassroots movement for reform. Pasadena is not immune to this problem. A recent incident—the unwarranted and brutal beating of Chris Ballew by two Pasadena police officers—has triggered a local campaign to
address the Pasadena Police Department’s use-of-force practices and policies and to engage the new interim police chief in constructive discussion.
PJTC’s Social Justice Committee sponsors a discussion of police accountability in Pasadena. Speakers include local filmmaker/journalist James Farr who will screen his short documentary about the Ballew incident and local NAACP leader and civil rights lawyer Skip Hickambottom.
