DC Ferguson packs Council oversight hearing on MPD to oppose jumpouts

On the 10th of March, DC Ferguson activists packed a DC Council Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on MPD. They were there to demand nothing less than a complete end to "jump-out" police tactics that terrorize communities of color in DC. Former cops testified that their training justified any and all police shootings, and someone named Trayvon White said cops are even conducting cavity searches during those jump-outs. A jump-out is when cops swarm out of unmarked cars with the intent of initimidating someone into consent to a search.
