Police Targeting of Anarchists

This groundbreaking constitutional rights lawsuit charged that local and federal law enforcement violated the U.S. Constitution by singling out people for arrest based on their perceived political ideology, targeting persons the government deemed by their manner of dress to be, or to associate with, anarchists. The MPD gave a secret FBI intelligence unit access to interrogate the protestors on video. The PCJF successfully secured a victorious settlement, including monetary payments to the individuals and changes in police policies.
