Getting Started
In May 2020, Minneapolis Police Department officers arrested George Floyd, a forty-six-year-old black man, after a convenience-store employee called 911 to report that Floyd had purchased cigarettes using a counterfeit $20 bill. Less than twenty minutes after the first officer arrived on the scene, Floyd was unconscious and pinned beneath three police officers.

Floyd’s death sparked nationwide protests about racial discrimination in our criminal-justice system.
Our criminal-justice system is largely composed of three separate but interrelated units: police, courts, and corrections. Inside each unit, decision-makers have powerful authority. For example, a police officer can use discretion in deciding whether to arrest someone, a prosecutor can use discretion in deciding whether and what to charge someone with, and a prison official can use discretion in deciding whether to release an inmate early.

Along with this discretion, however, comes the possibility of discrimination.
Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:
Address racial discrimination in the three units of our criminal-justice system.
Propose solutions for eliminating racial discrimination in these units.
