Fliers Target Police Brutality, University Takes Them Down

BOSTON, MA - A Suffolk University in Boston has ordered the removal of fliers posted around its campus asking students if they have been "brutalized" by police.

University officials say the fliers for the "Police Misconduct Documentation Project" and the "Police Complaint Assistance Project" used the university logo without authorization, the Boston Herald reported. The projects are joint efforts by law students at Suffolk, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Boston Black Men's Leadership Group.

The union representing Boston police officers was infuriated by the fliers, which ask: "Have you been abused, brutalized or mistreated by the Boston Police?"

Tom Nee, president of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association, called the language "offensive" and "cop hate-baiting at its worst."

Karen Blum, a Suffolk law professor involved with the project, says the language is too strong.

"The Police Complaint Assistance Project is not a seminar in how to sue police officers, nor is it meant to be an indictment of the Boston Police Department,'' Blum said. "The school has removed the fliers because we certainly would not endorse the word brutalized."
