The Los Angeles Police Department has a long history of racism, leading to racially motivated police misconduct. This racially motivated police misconduct is still happening today, but there are also police officers whose actions are justified. The goal of this project is to identify a way to discern racially motivated police misconduct within the Los Angeles Police Department from justified actions. This project will result in a proposal being sent to the LAPD, with at least a partial solution backed with evidence drawn from databases, documents, and text.
