Soraya Chemaly nails it.

A criminal justice system in which officers are significantly more likely (estimates range from between four and 15 times the national average) to be involved in intimate partner violence does not serve its citizens safely and efficaciously.

A criminal justice system that allows more than 25% police officers accused of domestic violence, as is the case in Florida, to stay in their jobs does not serve its citizens safely and efficaciously.

A criminal justice system that lets 86% of officers, even after two or more domestic violence arrests, as is the case in Puerto Rico, to remain on active dutydoes not serve its citizens safely and efficaciously.

A criminal justice system that undercounts reported rape by more than 65,000 a year does not serve its citizens safely and efficaciously.

A criminal justice system in which sexual misconduct is the second most reported type of police misconduct after excessive violence does not serve its citizens safely and efficaciously.

Citations and more badassery over there.
