Baltimore’s police brutality nightmare: Former officer tweets examples of corruption & misconduct he saw

Source: Salon

Twitter has served as mobilizing tool for marginalized activists who have used the social media platform to amplify isolated stories of police brutality until a clear narrative of systemic injustice has become undeniable (the #blacklivesmatter movement certainly was most helpful).

Now, one former police officer has taken to Twitter to tell his side of the story.

Michael A. Wood is a retired detective in the Baltimore Police Department’s violent crime division and founder of the Police Leadership Association, a group that publishes educational handbooks meant to serve as the “single resource for career development for law enforcement officers and supervisors.” He began tweeting Wednesday about things he had “seen & participated in, in policing that is corrupt, intentional or not.”
