Extra Extra Tactical Response Unit sued for use of excessive force By Extra Extra | 03.10.2008 San Antonio Express-News conducted a three-month study of the Tactical Response Unit of the San Antonio Police Department, a unit created to reduce violent crime. "The unit used force to subdue only three of almost 1,000 Anglo suspects it arrested. By comparison, officers struggled with nearly six times as many minorities per 1,000 arrests, a disparity that a police expert called concerning." Lomi Kriel and John Tedesco used a use-of-force database, arrest and court records, and material from numerous public records requests to tell the story.
