ACLU sues Madison Co. Sheriff’s Dept. for racial profiling

The ACLU of Mississippi is suing the Madison County Sheriff’s Department for targeting black residents.

The lawsuit, filed on Monday by the ACLU, the American Civil Liberties Union and the law firm of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, states it’s suing the department over its “unconstitutional policing program to systematically target black people for illegal searches and seizures of persons, homes, and cars”.
