MIAMI-The NAACP is requesting that a civilian panel investigate the killing of eight black men in the past ten months.

The Miami Herald reports:

Meanwhile, the ACLU presented a letter Tuesday to the city’s Civilian Investigative Panel, listing dates and names of the men killed by police between July 2010 and February 2011 and one killed by a Miami-Dade police officer. They said the number of shootings is disproportionate when compared to larger cities such as New York City, in which the population is 20 times larger than in Miami. New York City had just eight police-involved shootings in 2010.

“The people in our community deserve to know that every unit of government that has a role with regard to these issues is fulfilling its responsibility to address these urgent matters,” said the letter signed by ACLU Executive Director Howard Simon, Curry, ACLU Attorney John DeLeon and past NAACP President Brad Brown. The letter goes on to say, “There is now a crisis in the Miami Police Department and it is resulting in the death of black men.”
